CHEF’S CHOICE

Scottish Field - - PLOCKTON INN, WESTER ROSS -

Peter McKenna, Chef/Owner at The Gan­net in Glas­gow, chooses six of his favourite restau­rants

ED­IN­BURGH FOOD STU­DIO

I love what Ben and Sashana are do­ing. I’ve been quite a few times and it’s al­ways a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence with some ex­cep­tional guest chefs tak­ing the reins. www.ed­in­burgh­food­stu­dio.com, 0131 258 0758

BIA BISTROT, ED­IN­BURGH

I al­ways get a warm wel­come here. Roisin and I went to cater­ing col­lege to­gether many moons ago in Done­gal. Matt and Roisin never miss a ser­vice as it’s only the two of them in the kitchen. I love the game and their bone mar­row with caramelise­d onion. Their menu is full of flavour. www.bi­abistrot.co.uk, 0131 452 8453

ASIAN GOURMET, GLAS­GOW

Ivan and I bring the staff here a cou­ple of times a year. We al­ways or­der pop­corn chicken, duck tongue, salt and chilli frog legs, spicy tofu. My tip is to or­der from the Asian menu, not the English. 0141 332 1639

EL PERRO NE­GRO, GLAS­GOW

This reg­u­lar pop-up has the best burg­ers I’ve ever tasted, hands down. For­get about stacked gar­nish burg­ers, th­ese pat­ties don’t need any help to pack a punch. A great blend of dif­fer­ent cuts of beef. Go for the top dog, you will not be dis­ap­pointed. www.face­book.com/ElPer­roNe­groStreet­foodGlas­gow/

CAIL BRUICH, GLAS­GOW

Chris and the team have been cook­ing beau­ti­ful food on Great Western Road for years. I had a won­der­fully cooked plate of lamb loin, sweet­breads and peas last time I had din­ner with them, this is a firm favourite. www.cail­bruich.co.uk, 0141 334 6265

CRABSHAKK, GLAS­GOW

Last but cer­tainly not least, John and Lynn's small but per­fectly formed seafood Mecca in Fin­nieston put the area on the map long be­fore it be­came the trendy hub it is today. One of Glas­gow's most vi­brant restau­rants, they spe­cialise in fresh seafood from the West Coast and is­lands. If you haven’t been, get the crab cakes – you won’t find bet­ter. www.crabshakk.com, 0141 334 6127
