The Bungo Bar & Kitchen

With overhanging lights, wooden tables and exposed brick walls, the Bungo boasts all of the defining stylistic features of bistro dining, with food to match.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Tapping into community spirit of Strathbungo – and giving it a nod in the name – ensured that the Bungo Bar and Kitchen quickly endeared itself to Southside locals. Sister to the West End’s Left Bank, it shares a similar low-key boho vibe. Exposed brick walls, chunky leather booth seats and fairy-lit windows set the tone for a restaurant/bar which is a heartening place to spend a few hours. The food, too, is comforting – burgers, pastas, curry – but with inventive flavour profiles. Chickpea and veggie haggis burger is well balanced and melt in the mouth – surely one of the best vegetarian burgers in the city. Small plates represent some of the finer dishes on offer and can be enjoyed as starters or shared tapas-style. Both the crispy beetroot gnocchi and sweetcorn and tofu fritters are worth repeat visits alone. Weekly theme nights allow the kitchen to try out new specials in popular areas – Curry, Mexican, Burgers – and give diners a hearty plate of food plus a beer or wine for less than a tenner.
