9 Foods you NEED to try in Glasgow

9 Foods you NEED to try in Glasgow

The UK, in general, has a bad reputation for their food. It's thought to be bland and boring, but I have found nothing of the sort to be true. Especially with new, young chef coming in with modern ideas. They are transforming classic, traditional dishes into meals bursting with exciting, new flavours. Scotland might be a small country, but its abundance of lakes, rivers, and fertile soils makes it the perfect place for incredible seafood, delicious meat and hearty vegetables. When the Scandinavians came to Scotland, they brought with them their love of salting and smoking food. When the French came, they brought with them a refined culture of cooking and a love of pastry. All this, along with the native people's local fruits and veg created the unique set of culinary combinations we get today in Scotland. Here are some of the meals you MUST try if travelling to Glasgow and where to find them!

One of the best places to grab a bite to eat, enjoy people watching while being surrounded by one of the most beautiful views in Dresden, is at the Dresden Neumarkt. The Neumarkt is the cultural centre of the Dresden historical district. This area was mostly entirely destroyed in WWII during the same bombing runs that destroyed the Dresden Frauenkirche.

This was not a favourite of the German people and after reunification these buildings were demolished and the reconstruction of the Neumarket to restore it to its original architectural style got underway.
