Review on Ubiquitous Chip
A bastion of the Glasgow restaurant scene for more than three decades, the Chip just keeps on rolling. Owner Ronnie Clydesdale who sadly died in April 2010 was a champion of Scottish produce and did much over the years to put it right back on the gastronomic map.
You can choose to eat among the vines and greenery in the spectacular white-walled courtyard (complete with its own trickling pool) or in the main dining room, which is brightened up by colourful murals from artist/writer Alasdair Gray.
Dumfriesshire rabbit, Perthshire wood pigeon and Smeaton Farm Black-face heather-fed lamb all find their way into the kitchen, along with Buckie crab, organic Orkney salmon and much more besides. Otherwise, you could start with roast garlic velouté and wild mushrooms, proceed to Scrabster ling with chilli-roasted red pepper and crispy seaweed and conclude with the Chip's famous oatmeal ice cream with fruit compote or 'eight ways with rhubarb'. And don't leave without exploring the awesome Scottish cheeseboard.
Upstairs is a brasserie offering simpler, more robust food in the shape of vegetarian haggis with neeps and tatties, spiced belly of Perthshire pork with clapshot and braised greens and shin of Scotch beef with roast garlic potatoes.
The wine list is one of Glasgow's finest – bursting with European classics, pedigree clarets and Burgundies, plus a plentiful supply of up-front drinking from the New World. Bottled beers of every description and a jaw-dropping line-up of 150 malt whiskies complete the picture.
