Inspired by food hawkers, Tuk Tuk Glasgow offers the same rustic roadside and railway station dishes which are served up to the busy office workers and school children on the streets of India.

h3. Multi-restaurant venue in Finnieston
Cranside Kitchen is housed in the historic Rotunda North, a red-bricked former harbour tunnel
overlooking the Clyde. It offers an eye-popping range of dining choices and, as you’d guess by the
name, is right next to the landmark Finnieston Crane.
Open seven days a week, this free-to-enter food market and beer garden features stalls from five of
Glasgow's most renowned restaurants: Rioja, Halloumi, Kilmurry & Co, La Rotunda and Pickled Ginger.
Most days, you can head there for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
h3. Choice of global cuisines
At Cranside Kitchen you get to enjoy around-the-world dining to suit all tastes (without having to worry
about choosing the perfect restaurant for your whole group). Simply wander around the food market,
pick whatever takes your fancy and then return to your table (both indoor and outdoor seating is
available). Grab tapas at Rioja, Greek cuisine at Halloumi; New York classics at Kilmurry & Co, modern
Italian at La Rotunda, and Japanese and Korean dishes at Pickled Ginger, then finish with a dessert.
Sample highlights include Rioja’s chicken lollipops with a red wine caramel; Halloumi’s king prawns with
chilli and garlic; Kilmurry’s ham hough terrine with wild mushroom and caramelised fig apple crisp; La
Rotunda’s stonebaked Pizza Primavera with goats’ cheese & artichokes, and Pickled Ginger’s spicy
pork in a Korean BBQ sauce.
Wash it all down with a cocktail such as a classic Singapore Sling or a craft beer, spirit or wine.
