Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Behind an unassuming shop front on Shawlands' bohemian Skirving Street, Biscuit serves up thoughtfully prepared food from a well-considered menu of all-day breakfasts, burgers, baked potatoes, and wraps, as well as some unexpected options such as the Highlander haggis sandwich, and plenty of cakes. The impressive club sandwich is six inches tall, with chicken and bacon layers complemented by jalapeños and crunchy gherkins respectively – the cream cheese and mustard elevating this snack from comfort food to signature sandwich. Friendly staff are happy to make recommendations, and their tastes are to be trusted – the nachos are a staff favourite. Rather than crisps, these are deep-fried triangles of tortilla, light, crisp and oily, topped with cheese, salsa, and sour cream. Sweet potato wedges are suggested as an off-menu side dish, and are the perfect way to ease in some vitamin C. Affordable, casual, and cooked with care, Biscuit is a highlight in the city’s Southside.
