Dine at Cafézique
Scottish grub was never really about the famed haggis or deep-fried mars bars, and although you can still search these treats out today’s chefs have re-invented the old and familiar. In the city’s west end, Cafézique is a best kept secret. The edgy eatery has a boho vibe and a clientele eager for the farm fresh foods. Owner Mhairi Taylor whose next door deli has become a sought after institution for locally grown products literally can be seen carrying bundles of fresh vegetables and chunks of cured pork into her hip bistro. The Cullin Skink soup, a traditional Scottish delicacy of fresh haddock morsels and potato chunks in a rich creamy broth was divine. Prices are reasonable. A two-course lunch starts at 10 pounds.
