We've recently had some much needed down time in our hometown of Glasgow in the lead up to our next big trip to Asia so we've had a chance to catch up on what's been going on in the exciting Scottish Food scene. Glasgow is generally a food tourist's paradise with every dish you can imagine from award winning burgers to some of the best curry in the world and everything in between. A new addition to the Glasgow food scene is Mezze in the Rotunda so we went along to check it out.
Mezze offers traditional Greek Mediterranean tapas dishes in a laid back, stylish environment. On the top floor of the Rotunda, this roof top bar is a great place to grab some of their delicious dips to share with friends over a cocktail. We sampled a selection of the dips available and although they were all tasty, the stand out star of the show for me was the Taramasalata. Honestly, I could eat about a pound of this stuff with bread. Yum!
All of the food we had was fresh, hot and tasty with other highlights including the Orzo Pilaf (featured above) which I had never tried but would order again. It was essential warm rice shaped pasta salad with olive oil and veggies: what's not to love?
The night was topped off by the chance to sample some delicious Makar gin as well as some Greek wine and beer. The selection of locally sourced alcohol is echoed in Mezze's menu with all of the meat and fish being locally supplied which is great to see in Glasgow.
We really enjoyed our visit to Mezze and would recommend it if you are looking for good Greek food in a stylish setting. It's close proximity to the SECC and Hydro will draw in the crowds so if you're going on a gig night, book ahead!
