Glasgow Restaurants

Ubiquitous Chip

Updated 10/21/2013

Fodor's Review

Occupying a converted stable behind the Hillhead subway station, this restaurant is an institution among members of Glasgow's media and theater communities, who most days can be found in the busy bar. The more informal upstairs brasserie serves haggis with neeps and tatties (turnips and potatoes, if you prefer) or slow-roasted pork shoulder. The ground-floor restaurant has a large cobbled courtyard with a glass roof. The more expensive menu offers fish and game dishes

that vary from week to week. Try the roast saddle of rabbit or the monkfish with pork belly. There's an excellent lunch and pretheater menu for £15.95.

Joyous Family Evening, Honouring Mr. C. R. Mackintosh

Rather recently (late September, '13), I returned to this rather ubiquitous establishment with the mrs., beloved sister #1, a fun-loving Glasgow-dwelling cousin, a fellow Singapore-based relative and a delightful, long-time family friend. Said friend of Japanese-Scottish descent and a most erudite scholar of all things pertaining to one of my esteemed Scottish ancestors, Mr. Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Start to finish, service at Ubiquitous Chip

was exemplary, in no small measure to my cousin's long-time friendships with various restaurant management and staff. For dining, this occasional carnivore savoured 'Aberdeen Angus' filet. Libations of Champagne and various wines were most satisfactory and refreshing, thanks to the most knowledgeable and fun-loving cousin. [Will confess this particular evening and Glasgow weekend (in retrospect, a most welcome break from ongoing meetings in London) was solely to participate in various family dinners, receptions and ceremonies to honour Mr. C. R. Mackintosh. Can't say that bucolic Glasgow is even in my top ten of various Scottish destinations (I have gotten rather spoilt for choice over the decades, with various family's Scottish homes and retreats), but this evening - and weekend - was truly memorable. Many thanks, far-flung Mackintosh family - and others.] The evening at Ubiquitous Chip flowed so beautifully, particularly with the latest Japanese and Mackintosh news from sister #1 and the Japanese-Scottish scholar. Both had recently returned from Kyoto, Takayama, Tokyo and a few other Japanese locales. Particularly relevant for me, with impending meetings in Tokyo later this month. Ultimately, a truly enjoyable evening of dining with fine family and friends in cherished Scotland. Savour your Scottish times.

Great food . Expensive for Americans

I thought the food was interesting and very good , but expensive with the value of the dollar to the pound. The service was unobtrusive add not rushed at all and the wine list was very good. We had time to enjoy the meal. I would recommend this restaurant highly , but be willing to spend some dollars if you are from the States.

Ubiquitous Chip - you'll need plenty of greens!!

Food was very tasty, and a bit different however I dont think it was worth the money, £39.50 for 3 courses.
