Taste Buchanan is now open to the public with a mouth-watering array of traders serving up the likes of gourmet hot dogs, lip-smacking waffles, sour dough pizzas and Asian bao buns all washed down with a Scottish craft beer and cocktail bar.

Taste Buchanan is an innovative partnership between Land Securities-owned Buchanan Galleries and hi-tech street trading platform StreetDots, who are behind similar ventures in London. Inverness-born Atholl Milton, founder of StreetDots, said: “The timing is right for bringing this to Glasgow. 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.

“Taste Buchanan is also giving the traders the chance to experiment and really play with ideas without the pressure of having to take on a restaurant. We’ve got chefs starting up whole new brands for the launch and we’re really proud to be able to give that opportunity. There are eight incredible traders joining us for the launch and we’ll be seeing dozens more in the coming year. We’re so excited about finding out who’ll be joining us in making Taste Buchanan the best place in Glasgow for the newest trends in street food.”

The first line up of traders includes:

The Buffalo Farm, a family business from Fife, originally began as a small business producing meat to sell primarily at farmer’s markets. But since those humble beginnings, the business now run three butcher shops, a busy event catering business as well as supplying an ever-growing portfolio of restaurants and hotels. Passionate about producing the highest quality meats, poultry and game, Buffalo Farm will be serving up a host of dishes including their specialty water buffalo burgers – a favourite with celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay!

I am surprised about the number of hotel booking sites and 1 celebrity rating you come up with for rate evaluate.com. I have used the website upon numerous events and never had any kind of issues with any part of the booking or even termination procedures. Within reading some of the negative remarks I am would endeavor to say that the issue is not with.
