The Triposo Team is going to Inverness, Scotland next week for our next Jamboree. To celebrate we thought we'd share with you our top picks for eating haggis around the globe - and there's a surprise number one entry!
Haggis is considered the national dish of Scotland thanks to poet Robert Burns’ poem "Address to a Haggis". Whether you eat yours with "neeps and tatties" (mashed turnips and potatoes) and a glass of whiskey, or deep fried, for a true taste of Scotland try haggis at one of these top restaurants.
10. Cafe Gandolfi
Our number 10 spot goes to a good ol’ fashioned Scottish pub. Cafe Gandolfi's haggis is naturally served with neeps and tatties and is as classic as you can get. Come for Sunday roast or a casual weekday dinner.
A restaurant, art gallery and music venue in the heart of old Aberdeen, Musa promotes and celebrates all things contemporary. Their diverse menu showcases classic Scottish staples with a modern flair - like their haggis and coriander spring rolls. For a refreshing take on haggis and much more, Musa offers a full catered evening of food and entertainment.
8. The Lade Inn
With hearty meals and Scottish ales, everyone is made to feel welcome at the Lade Inn. Located on the highest mountain in Trossachs National Park, the Lade Inn will warm you up and fill your belly after a long hike through the Highlands.

When the Ubiquitous Chip opened in the 70’s, Scottish cuisine was something only grannies made for Sunday lunch.

With their seasonally changing menu and pride in all things Scottish, The Ubiquitous Chip will serve you Scotland’s heart on a platter - in the form of their delicious venison or vegetarian haggis.
Run by farmers, Oink is an authentic butcher specializing in hog roasts from their own Scottish Borders farms.
