Glasgow’s food and drink scene is without a doubt bursting at the seams with all kinds of eateries, takeaways and bars for you to explore. The competition is fierce, and in order to make an impact in this busy city, you need to impress the residents.
There is so much to choose from, and it seems that every week there is a new venture opening up somewhere in the city that gains the interest of the locals.
Generations gone by will tell you that the city is very different from how it was in their day, when eating out was a luxury that only a few could afford.
During the 1960s, Glasgow underwent a food revolution of sorts, as the old ‘pie and beans’ culture was shaken off in favour of more quality food.
Now there are several restaurants in Glasgow that have earned their place as top UK restaurants. One of them being Crabshakk, which opened its doors in 2009 serving fresh seafood from around Scotland.
Crabshakk serves a host of fresh Scottish seafood located in the trendy part of the city, Finniestoun. The family that own Crabshakk are from the western highlands of Scotland, so it is safe to say that they know a thing or two about seafood.
The second to make the list was Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery. It is located in Glasgow’s Anderson area and showcases fine dining at its best. Inside it is furnished with Scottish tartan and fine oak and mahogany, which compliments the standard of cuisine that it serves.
Both of these restaurants specialise in seafood, a delicacy that Scotland is traditionally famous for. It has a vast wealth of seafood right at its fingertips, and Scotland has been preparing seafood for as long as it’s own history.
