Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

If you live or work in the West End you have probably spotted the queue outside Taco Mazama on Byres Road at lunchtimes. The popular grab-and-go Mexican spot has two other smaller takeaway-focused branches in the city (on Renfield Street and in Buchanan Galleries) but its premises in the heart of Hillhead remains the busiest. The matter of fact menu puts diners centre-stage, first choosing from a format of either quesadilla, fajita, burrito, salad or tacos and topping it with a filling of their choice. Fillings worth a mention include the chargrilled chicken, the delicious chipotle shredded tofu and veggie chilli of the day, a warming hot pot of which is made in-house each morning using a changing mix of seasonal veg. The menu really does go above and beyond when it comes to vegetarians and vegans – more than half of the options on offer are meat-free. A fridge full of Mexican colas make for a considered soft drink selection, available in a host of brightly coloured tropical varieties including guava, mango and pineapple.
