A Glasgow Story

The Val Doro Restaurant in Glasgow. Put it on the Bucket List...
The Val Doro Restaurant in Glasgow

An Australian walked into a deep-fried haggis cafe with a good friend from Sierra Leone… Aisha and I took a moment out from the Design Thinking work we were deeply engaged with in Glasgow, and went exploring the streets of Glasgow.

An unexpected surprise was found when we met Luigi, who taught us more than we needed to know about haggis, sold us some sickly-sweet but delicious deep-fried Mars Bars, and also sang for us.

He is an opera singer as well, and I suspect his life story is something to behold.

It is quite likely I will be dropping in to say hello once finishing the 24 km leg running around rain-soaked Glasgow very soon.

In case you were wondering, this is what deep-fried haggis looks like, and it was very, very good. Best not to think about the beef lungs before dining.

    I looked at the deep fried haggis and thought only a Scot or a crazy Australian son would eat that. I haven’t had my breakfast yet. Maybe a bit of muesli would help, but wouldn’t it be so tame by comparison!

      Luigi is a remarkable character, as interesting as his haggis.
