Top 5 / Europe

Take a look at these exceptional Glasgow restaurants for when you want to treat yourself in the Scottish city.

Ubiquitous Chip

A 40-year veteran of the Glaswegian culinary scene, this place is still going strong. Ingredients are proudly local and the food is top notch.

Café Gandolfi

This former cheesemonger now houses one of the best-known restaurants in all of Glasgow. It serves up Scottish dishes, such as Cullen skink and haggis, to an appreciative crowd of locals and tourists.

Rogano

This spectacular restaurant is decorated in the Art Deco style that was all the rage in the 1930s. It lends Rogano an air of sophistication carried over into the food. Sit down in the restaurant, get something lighter at Café Rogano or scoff down a sandwich at the Oyster Bar.

The Gannet

This place feels a bit like a trendy converted warehouse in Brooklyn with its exposed walls, but the food makes far more effort. Local produce is front and center here, and there is even an in-house butchery.

Stravaigin

Chow down on local ingredients such as Perthshire pigeon at this incredible spot in the fashionable West End. Stravaigin is highly acclaimed with good reason, offering a great journey through contemporary Scottish cuisine.

Best Apps for World News

There are many different ways to consume the news in today’s world. Traditional newspapers have become a thing of the past with more and more people choosing to get news from digital outlets. In the age of technology, the issue that arises is there are so many different websites and news outlets to gather information. It’s difficult at times for consumers to figure out which app or website gives them the information most important or relevant to them.

Culinary Artistry

Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.

Visiting Madeira

When someone mentions travel to Portugal, they probably mean visiting Lisbon or Porto. Southwest of Portugal proper, however, is an autonomous Portuguese archipelago filled with great wine, beautiful botanical gardens and a wonderful climate.

Pastel de Nata in Portugal

While it’s unlikely you’d go all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, for just one dish, there’s certainly one bite you must have while you’re there: the egg tart. Pastel de nata (cream pastry) is a national obsession that has become a bucket-list bite for nearly every traveler to the country’s seaside capital. Fortunately for tourists, the city’s most iconic landmark, Belém Tower, is located just across the street and down the shoreline from the city’s undisputed powerhouse of pastel, Pastéis de Bélem. Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.
