For some of us few things are better than spending a day celebrating food, drink and poetry. Burns Night, a Scottish festivity that falls on January the 25th does exactly that, and also commemorates the birthday of Scotland’s most loved poet, Robert Burns.
When it comes to the feast, Burns Night puts together three ultimately Scottish things: neeps, whisky and haggish, of course. After all, Burns himself wrote a whole ode to it!
However, there’s so much more to Scotland than that (especially on the food scene!), and since we recently launched the ENTERTAINER in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Burns Night gives us the perfect opportunity to help you discover more of our Scottish ENTERTAINER. Read on, laddies and lassies;
A Twist on Haggis at The Huxley
The Huxley’s fusion menu gives a turn to the traditional recipe with their haggis bhaji, which adds crunch, freshness and the zing of date and pear chutney. Their whole menu is comforting yet vibrant with surprising flavours and twists.
Local Charm at Badger & Co.
Located at the former home of Kenneth Grahame, the author of The Wind in the Willows, Badger and Co. offers a scrumptious menu full of seasonal dishes. Their game pie deserves a special mention, as well as their hazelnut torte.
Find Your New Local Spot at Drury Street Bar & Kitchen
We want you to head there for Burns Night (and please, try their haggis burger because it’s an absolute winner), but hopefully you will turn this especial occasion into your weekend routine, because Drury Street Bar & Kitchen has the kind of atmos that brings a pub close to your heart.
So go out, enjoy our beautiful cities and make sure you celebrate the finer things like proper foodies, because that’s what the ENTERTAINER UK is there for! Like Burns himself said: “[…]we hae meat, and we can eat, Sae let the Lord be thankit“!
