Top of the list, surely: Those visiting Glasgow should try the local delicacy of deep-fried Mars bars.

They have square sausages up there, and they put the tea in the cup before the milk...:)

Porridge with SALT.

I still eat it after 30+ years in the Algarve AND I taught my Portuguese-born kids to have it that way too! :classic_laugh:

Brown sauce.

 

The big divide - salt and vinegar or salt and sauce.

Cullen Skink is offered in many establishments.

I think it's some sort of fish broth, but the name put me off :classic_blink:

Cullen Skink is really tasty! Do look it up online.  Also cranaghan.

 

One obvious omission on the other posts is morning rolls. Tasty whether with a hot or a cold filling.

 

Personal favourites  are  #1 bacon and mushroom and #2 with fried egg- and both must have sauce too!

Love bacon and egg roll though sometimes I like a haggis and tattie scone roll

Does sauce translate to gravy?  Or are you talking about HP Sauce or Lee & Perrins type sauce??

Cullen skink is a soup made up of smoked haddock, onions and potato

 

Tattie scone is a  a potato scone so made primarily from potatoes and flour and butter.

 

Black pudding is pork blood and oats of some kind

 

Cranachan is a dessert. Cream and oats with usually berries and sometimes with a bit of whisky.

 

When we say juice we actually mean the fizzy stuff like coke or irn bru. Council juice is tap water.

Oh my goodness - is this a popular dish in the area?  BTW - thank you for the explanation of the various food items.

Personally I don't like it but some do. You can have anytime though most people either have it for as a breakfast roll or a supper when they go to the chippy. Sometimes I see it as a starter or a side in a restaurant but not often. 

 

Chippy is a chip shop like fish and chips. You can order an item as a single meaning without chips or a supper which means with chips. A Glasgow salad is chips

And where you see the word "chips" in the above posts, they refer to french fries not potato chips (which we call crisps)

Cullen Skink is Delicious, also Chowder.  Both are a sort of creamy fish soup.

 Black pudding = Blood sausage  not so unfamiliar at all.  😄

Never heard of blood sausage either - had to google it. Yep, it appears that blood pudding & blood sausage are very similar. In addition to the UK & US, blood sausages are made in quite a few countries: France, Germany, Spain, Poland, Finland, Estonia, Czech Republic. I've never seen it on a menu in the states or during my travels and had, until on this thread, never heard of such a thing. Learned something new (although extremely doubtful that I will attempt to find one of these delicacies to sample) - I find the name repellent (puts me in mind of vampires).
