Long gone are the days of deep-fried Mars Bars and exclusively fast food restaurants lining Glasgow's high streets, Glasgow's food scene has undergone a revolution in the past decade. With unprecedented independent bars and eateries popping up like mushrooms, Glaswegians are challenged more than ever to step out of their culinary comfort zones. These restaurants defy the ordinary in more ways than their menus. Many of these restaurants strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible, attracting a growing number of eco-conscious people.

The Ultimate Guide to Discount Dining in Glasgow!

It's fair to say that Glasgow's food scene used to be little more than deep fried Mars bars and bland, beige dishes. There was a lack of adventure and experimentation when it came to the food scene; people clearly feared the unknown, and stuck to the food they knew and loved. That was until around five years ago when Glasgow underwent a food revolution that has been seen across many a major city in the UK. People wanted something new. 

This food revolution began in the student-heavy West, where young people were constantly looking for something new to try. Restaurants have been constantly popping up like mushrooms ever since, and there doesn't seem to be any sign that it's slowing down! With a whole host of recognisable chains and quirky independent restaurants, there's something for everyone in Glasgow's food scene.

The Ultimate Guide to Discount Dining in Manchester

According to the dreamy Fred Sirieix (the French guy from First DatesFred-sirieux), Manchester is the food hub of the North West. With more restaurants, food markets and food festivals than ever before, it's not all that surprising that budding restaurateurs choose Manchester as their home. The food scene is incredibly varied from the independent eateries and coffee shops of the Northern Quarter, fine dining restaurants of Deansgate and the well loved chain restaurants of the Corn Exchange, there's a lot on offer here. I honestly believe it would take years to eat your way through all the restaurants here (I have lived here for five years, believe me, I've tried!)
