Budget Restaurants in Glasgow
|| If you’re
looking for somewhere to eat on a shoestring budget there’s
plenty of options available in Glasgow so you can save
your cash for hitting the shops or bars later in the evening.
China Town [map] on New City Road, is one of those places that proves particularly
popular with students and the local Chinese community
(which is always a good sign). Serving a massive buffet
that can provide at least a weekend’s worth of food
supplies in one visit, you’ll find a range of beef
and chicken dishes as well as won ton soup, salad, prawns
and a good choice of vegetarian dishes.
Get involved in the fun at another gigantic buffet, this
time incorporating an Italian theme at Deep Pan Pizza
Company [map] on Bath Street. This diamond of a venue offers as much
pizza, garlic bread and salad as you can consume for a
bargain price (usually around £5). Inhabited by
businessmen, office workers, sales assistants, students
and school kids, how long will it be before you join them
in the queue?
Alternatively head to Dino’s [map] on Sauchiehall Street, for more Italian treats. You can’t
miss Dino’s as it’s sign posted in neon, but
once inside you’ll forget all about being in Glasgow
and feel more like you’re sitting in a Milano piazza.
Enjoy the antipasta, soups, salads, pasta dishes, pizzas
and some exquisite and traditional desserts.
Get a taste of Scotland for just a couple of quid at Rab
Ha’s [map] on Hutcheson Street. This refurbished Victorian building
is home to a friendly bar (that serves excellent snacks),
a restaurant and hotel. You can choose from meat dishes
or organic vegetarian cuisine and some great traditional
Scottish fare. Rab Ha’s particularly appeals to
those keen to live a healthy lifestyle.
The Big Blue [map] on Great Western Road offers diners some of the best al
fresco eating in Glasgow. Choose a balcony seat overlooking
the River Klein and sit back to enjoy inventive pizzas
and delicious tapas.
If you like the idea of grabbing a slice of bargain-price
café culture you’ll be keen to visit Caffe
Uno [map] on Royal Exchange Square, where you can enjoy some delicious
snacks and while away the hours over a coffee or two.
You could get a filling snack when you’re on the
move at Ichiban [map] on Queen Street, which is home to the once-humble noodle.
Canteen-style dining means that you get served quickly
and can fill up on some of the delicious meals on offer,
which include plenty of veggie options. Every dish offers
great value for money too.
