Top chefs name their favourite Scottish restaurants to eat at

Several restaurants and eateries across Scotland were recommended by top chefs such as The Little Chartroom owner Roberta Hall-McCarron.

In The Guardian, she highly recommended Mirin in Edinburgh (formally known as Gulp Ramen).

Speaking of the Scottish establishment, she said: "Mirin (9 Albert Pl, Edinburgh) used to be called Gulp Ramen but it rebranded and now focuses on Japanese snacks.

"You can drop in for a quick bite – I love its crunchy, sticky veal sweetbread skewers – or devour everything on the menu."

She also highlighted the Kitchen Table on Easter Road, Hobz Bakery on Leith Walk and Razzo on Great Junction Street, praising the first eatery's "delicious pastries" and "great brunch menu".

She said of the other two spots: "Hobz Bakery (106 Leith Walk) makes an incredible Rueben croissant, with pastrami, gherkins and cheese laminated into the pastry.

"If I’ve finished work late, I’ll often pop into Razzo (59 Great Junction St) for a quick pizza. I’ll usually go for Margherita with cured beets on top."

Rosie Healey, chef-owner of Gloriosa in Glasgow, also shared some of her recommendations for food lovers.

She said: "1841 (14 Vinicombe St) is a coffee shop in Glasgow that does amazing toasted cheese sandwiches – you can have them with fennel salami or pickle and they are just so delicious. 

"Banana Leaf (192 Vincent St) is a great South Indian restaurant. I always get its soups – they’re so tasty and spicy and the veg soup costs just £3."

Glasgow's Sunny Acre on Pollokshaws Road was also praised for its "really well-made quiches and salads"

She added: "Beirut Star (450 Paisley Rd West) does great Lebanese vegetable dishes such as smoked aubergine with onions, tomatoes and coriander or broad beans cooked for ages with lots of lemon and olive oil. They’re really fresh and really, really good."

James Ferguson of Fife's The Kinneuchar Inn shared that he tends to have Mondays and Tuesdays off when most restaurants are shut.

He added that because of this he tends "to gravitate towards budget places."

The first of these recommended by the chef was Saints Sizzle in St Andrews. He described it as a "burger joint near the aquarium" where diners "can watch the seals" while enjoying their meals, which can be as cheap as £6.

Speaking of his next two favourites, the chef said: "In Edinburgh, we always go to Noodles and Dumplings (23 S Clerk St). It makes its own hand-pulled noodles and steamed dumplings, and the chicken-heart skewers are good too. A lot of chefs eat there.

"The Hospitalfield Garden Cafe in Arbroath does brunch and lunch at really reasonable prices. The sage-fried eggs with black pudding and toast is totally delicious, and their Sunday roast is a smack-on bargain at £25 for three courses."
