This review is taken from the 2013 edition.
It may not be hard to bake a potato, but sometimes you are just too tired or too hungry to wait the hour or so it takes to do properly in the oven. This is where Tattie Shop comes into its own. Properly oven-baked, the potatoes have crisp skins and creamy insides filled with generous helpings of classics like cheese and chilli alongside a few less common options such as stew and dumplings or haggis and neeps. There is also a soup, a few filled rolls and tray bakes, but as the name suggests, potatoes are the main feature here.
