From what we remember of our school days, history was often presented as an unappetising list of dusty dates.
At Ingram Wynd, the history of the Merchant City is displayed in a rather more tasty way with etchings, pictures, paintings and maps dating from the 19th century all over the walls.
While the decor is Victorian, the cooking is a smart mix of Scottish classics; seasonal local ingredients and contemporary technique.
Hugely popular with 5pm diners, Ingram Wynd is a welcoming restaurant and bar on Ingram Street and today’s Big Deal is a great way to experience it.
Always a treat
Available seven days a week, the offer is for two people to each enjoy a main course from the a la carte menu along with a bottle of house wine to share.
The a la carte menu provides a lot of choice.
You could go trad and order the hotchpotch of Scots stovies; the chicken breast stuffed with haggis or the roasted haunch of venison served with mashed potato, red wine and rowan jelly.
Taking their inspiration from further afield are dishes like the BBQ glazed pork belly; the beef stir fry or the fritto misto: lightly fried, beer-battered king prawns, courgettes and calamari, all dusted with lemon salt and served with hand-cut chips.
The menu also features a grill selection featuring options like the tuna steak with teriyaki sauce; a flat iron steak and prime steak burgers.
Supplements will apply to dishes like the fritto misto and tuna steak, venison, rib-eye and fillet steaks.
