An adventurous girl cooks, eats and explores in Europe.
The traditional food to try in Scotland is definitely the Haggis. Some may lose interest after hearing what it is, various sheep organs mixed with oats, spices and vegetables then cooked in the stomach. It is tasty though and is served every which way: as a side, in sandwiches, as a burger patty, deep fried. Basically, you can get haggis in or with everything.
The haggis was good, but I was quite excited to find an amazing option of vegetarian haggis- made with oats and beans (though you may still want to ask exactly what is in it when ordering).
Try it in a breakfast sandwich, share an appetizer of fried haggis, or whatever way you like. Try it early as you may love it and need to eat as much as you can while you are able to. Our friend could not get enough and is on the hunt for haggis now in San Francisco (if you know where he can find it, please let us know).
