Taste Buchanan - A Foodies Dream

Taste Buchanan is the brand new place where all your food dreams can come true...

At the very top of Buchanan Galleries you'll now find the first indoor street food hub in Glasgow - and it's a little gem. The exciting and colourful, brand spankin' new food hub has a line-up of Scotland's best food producers, offering up a whole host of mouth-watering options. Over the next 18 months over 50 independent producers will have there chance to wow you, with new producers being swapped in every 6-12 weeks. It's such an amazing concept, as there'll always be something new to try giving food traders a brilliant platform to show-off.

As we climbed up the escalators making our to the Launch Party we kept getting whiffs of the amazing authentic street-style food that was enticing us....

It just all sounded amazing!

Taste Buchanan has been a joint venture with StreetDots and founder Atholl Milton said: "The timing is right for bringing this to Glasgow. (I couldn't agree more!) There's such an appetite in the city for interesting food, with great ingredients at a decent price. We've got some of Scotland's most exciting traders coming together to offer up something a bit different and there's always going to be something new for people to try." 

There was just too many amazing smells dancing about and we just kept spying different plates of delicious looking food. So of course we had to try it all, I mean that's only polite.

Chompsky was our first stop where we tried out the amazing boa buns, full of asian fusion flavours in their signature style.

Nomad Pizza was serving up authentic Italian pizzas straight out of their big, burning pizza oven.

There was also The Buffalo Farm with delectable burgers.

Designer Cakes by Paige with the cutest cupcakes.

Equi's with was serving up the finest, most indulgent ice-cream. We had to get one for the road and the salted caramel was calling my name!

Surf Dogs added some fabulous hotdogs to the mix.

And Union Waffles served up the best sweet treats, but also the most delicious savoury waffles, that were amazing to try as something different.

Last but not least was Slainthe Mhath the Scottish beer and cocktail bar that spent the evening serving up amazing cocktails - and at the launch party, my favourite Edinburgh Gin!

The whole area now is just amazing. It's the perfect place for a lil shopping break to re-fuel, to stop-off lunch when you need a break from the office - basically anytime you've got a wee tummy rumble. It's ideal if you just need a quick, easy, delicious pit stop or you can lounge about for longer in the colourful new setting. There's definitely a bit of a buzz about and it's such a great place to sit and relax for a while.

I just couldn't believe the transformation of the food court in Buchanan Galleries. In all honesty I never ventured up to the top of the galleries before, there just wasn't anything there really. Now it's been transformed into a buzzy and vibrant foodie spot that's filled with all this amazing food - I mean it's a dream!

Honestly, you just have to pop up and decide which one's your favourite for now - this also means you have to try every thing that's on offer.....
