The 7 Tastiest Street Food Menus in Glasgow
From the haldi hazed Himalayas of India and Pakistan to the pho-tastic streets of Vietnam, Glasgow’s street food scene has grown in the past few years, embracing flavours from across the globe and delivering them in tasty, budget-friendly bowls for folks across this hungry city. And since street food is so diverse, it’s perfect for any occasion, whether that be a post-work snack, weekend munch or drunken chomp after a night on the town. So to celebrate the city’s most eclectic culinary concoctions, here are the seven best street food menus in Glasgow.
We ravenous Glaswegians have enjoyed Taco Mazama’s Mexican street food phenomena for a good number of years, with the quality of ingredients and the craft of their tacos warming bellies on the reg. As well as bursting with spicy aromas and tender meats, their menu also plates up yummy vegan options on Vegan Tuesdays and healthy five-a-day burritos.
Offering succulent south Asian nosh, Bar Soba is a sure contender in the street food scene, combining flavours from across a continent, with eccentric fusion delights including cheeseburger spring rolls, buttermilk fried chicken katsu and of course classic Singapore street noodles. With a pinch of sugar and spice and everything nice, this mouth-watering menu is a winner for meat and seafood lovers alike.
Whether you’re a spice-lover, a spice-hater, a veggie or a meathead, Chaakoo caters for all with their diverse menu. Punjabi delights like daal makhani and roti to southern Indian faves such as Bombay potatoes and Peshwari naan dominate the menu as well as enchanting Iranian beauties like their kofta curry and fresh kebabs.
This lesser known gem finds itself slap bang in the middle of Glasgow’s west end, with a crowd-pleasing menu that serves a range of delicious Chinese snacks, dim sum and pastries. Dumpling Monkey is the Chinese street food king, with dishes that include Bento, steamed buns, Bao and fried noodles.
As general chip fiends and potato connoisseurs (chips and cheese, anyone?) it takes a lot to impress us Glaswegians with starchy delights. That said, Pommes Frites is sure to impress even the most seasoned snacker, with an array of Belgian style fries and German hot dogs, accompanied by your own choice of seasonings and sauces.
Fire In Babylon
Boasting tremendous Carribean street food, Fire In Babylon is Glasgow’s tastiest and most authentic joint to grab a mean jerk chicken or warm mango pie. Relish the best of West Indian culture, music and food in the bright tangerine and candle lit interiors. The Jamaican Ginger cake it a must-try and bound to blow your socks off.
Hanoi Bike Shop
Having opened its doors and unleashed its crazy aromatics on Glasgow streets in 2012, Hanoi Bike Shop has since become one of the most popular west end eateries. Serving up fresh and fragrant dishes from Vietnam including Pho, crispy salt and honey duck and crispy pork spring rolls, as well as their own Hanoi beer, this is the perfect spot for a shared meal with family and friends.
