Stravaigin: Think global, eat local in Glasgow
Stravaigin is an old Scots word that means "to roam or wander about casually or aimlessly, without intent" - I for one am glad to have strolled into this unpretentious culinary haven, even if it was premeditated! Located within the hip West End of Glasgow, this rustic café, bar and restaurant is a firm favourite with locals and foreign visitors alike.
The café & bar menu showcases a variety of easy eating dishes like a spice route curry of the moment (I had the guinea fowl version - simply delectable), battered fish and chips as well as classic chargrilled beef burgers and much more. Expect a lively atmosphere - this is Scotland after all!
If you're in the mood for an authentic yet toned down ambience, head downstairs to the intimate and inviting restaurant for a dapperly amplified dining experience. Meals here are made with expertly sourced top notch local produce, so expect a fine selection of meat, lamb, fish and pork dishes on the menu. Of course they offer some interesting vegetarian options as well.
I highly recommend this unique eatery on any visit to Scotland's largest city.
