Everywhere You Need to Eat in Glasgow Right Now
Updated: Apr 29
We don’t know about you guys, but there is something incredibly comforting about dining out. Whether it’s to catch up with friends, family, enjoy a date night or simply take yourself out for a bit of down time, eating out has a special place close to our hearts. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite places to eat right now in Glasgow, plus a couple of spots that we’ve had our eye on for a while now.
After hearing some great things about the Partick pizza joint, it’s fair to say we were incredibly exited to finally try out Basta Pizza Bar. Basta had been high on our list for a long time so it was great to finally get along. Not only did they serve up some exceptional fresh pizzas (try no. 4 - you’ll thank us later), but their burrata with roast vegetables was something to only dream about. As if that wasn’t enough, we discovered that across the road the team from Basta also own natural wine bar WINO, which if you ask us, is the perfect way to end an evening.
Gloriosa is somewhere we seriously could never get tired of. With a regularly changing menu of fresh Mediterranean inspired food and a wine list to die for, no two visits are ever the same. Trust us when we recommended this, but the focaccia is seriously not to be missed - you will be telling everyone about it from the moment it arrives. Hats off to the chef!!
Despite only just opening at the end of 2021, Partick’s newest South East Asian restaurant GaGa is taking the West End by a storm. Although not that this surprised us at all after the wonderful things we have heard about chef Julie Lin (Julie's Kopitum is currently on our to-eat list). Naturally, we tend to get excited over new spots opening and GaGa well and truly exceeded our expectations. The prawn toast went down so well we even ordered seconds. As if the food wasn’t enough, GaGa’s small but innovative cocktail list kept us going all night.
A staple in the Glasgow food scene, Five March will have you wanting to go back for more after each visit. With a variety of small plates to choose from and an exceptionally good cocktail menu (this seems to be a bit of a recurring theme for us...), the fresh and vibrant dishes that Five March have to offer will be sure to please.
And of course, can you even be at a Five March restaurant without ordering their famous fried spuds?!
Little Hoi An
A restaurant that we have yet to try, but is next on our to-eat list, Little Hoi An is the gem of the Southside. After starting up as a small pop-up, Little Hoi An has grown into a favourite for locals at their place on Allison Street. With a range of small plates, wok fried and signature dishes, there is something for everyone. Little Hoi An is also BYOB so perfect for sampling some of the independent bottle shops surrounding. We’ve already planned our visit to Made from Grapes for a wine (or two) for our visit this weekend.
