Gone are the days when The Barras was mainly the place where your granny went to buy strawberry tarts.
Nowadays, the classic market area is fast becoming a thriving culture hub as well, with the Barras Art and Design complex (BAaD) at the centre of it all.
The BackYard at BAaD, Scotland’s first ever shipping container street food enclave, is one of its highlights.
So why not check it out for yourself with today’s Big Deal on a meal with drinks for two, choosing between pizza or tacos?
A BackYard like no other
The BackYard at BAaD is one of Glasgow’s uniquest eating and drinking spots.
Each shipping container has its own street food offering, and there are various indoor and outdoor spaces to scoff your munchables down in. Wall murals and regular DJs make this a hip destination for a bite to eat.
As the Barrowlands and Saint Luke’s are both nearby, it’s also a great pre-gig spot.
This Big Deal has two options for either pizza or tacos for two, including a can of beer or cider, a glass of wine or a soft drink each.
Pizza for two
Option one is for two people to have their choice of pizza each plus drinks from the Magnificent 7 Pizza Shop, available Tuesday to Sunday from noon to 9pm.
Sample choices include The Hazelwood with black pudding, wild mushrooms, truffle oil and mozzarella, or The Barra Boy with prosciutto, parmesan, mozzarella, rocket, red pepper sauce and olive oil.
Tacos for two
Option two is for two people to have three tacos each plus drinks from The Container Cantina, available Friday and Saturday from noon to 9pm.
All tacos are soft shell and you will have a choice of meat, fish or veggie fillings. A sample creation is the salmon ceviche with spring onion, sesame, avocado and salsa verde.
This offer is available until 29th September, meaning you will have the whole of summer to make the most of it (some event dates might not be available, so make sure to phone ahead to check).
This Facebook reviewer loved their visit to The BackYard at BAaD:
‘The BackYard at BAaD is the perfect place to enjoy the rare Glasgow sun. Drinks are well priced, plus great atmosphere and great food. This is exactly what the east end needs and it shows that there is a demand for this by how busy it is. Keep up the good work!’
Go on, be BAaD…
Fine dining is all very well but sometimes, nothing but a hefty slice of pizza or a tasty stuffed taco will do. Throw in beer, wine and good tunes and you will have everything you need for a lazy summer’s day or evening.
If that sounds good to you, then grab this indulgent Big Deal for two from The BackYard. Who knows, it might just be all the BAaD medicine that you need…
