Taste Buchanan opens today, people!
What is it?
Put simply: it’s the easiest access to street food Glasgow has seen yet. The food court on the top floor of the Buchanan Galleries has been transformed into an exciting street food (code for: epic, high quality fast food) area with an amazing selection of venues.
Besides the delicious food? Well, this place is the first of its kind in Scotland and gives independent and new food businesses a chance to show themselves off in a way that’s affordable to a new business. The food available will gradually change every 3 months to let new people use it. If you come here regularly, you’ll will experience the Glasgow food scene as it evolves.
Who is it?
I didn’t manage to taste food from all the providers! The ones I did were absolutely brilliant! Here they are:
Equi’s Ice Cream
I took my cupcake home but it sadly didn’t arrive home in a photogenic condition…!
So, to summarise my thoughts:
Taste Buchanan is a refreshing approach to catering in a shopping centre. Most street food times and locations can be awkward for the average Joe to attend – this is slap bang in the centre, with comfortable seating, easy transport access and everything is reasonably priced! Give it a try – if not for the sake of your taste buds, then for our local food champions who are building their businesses!
