Scottish Food at Deeny's


I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I'm actually concluding the ethnic food tour with Scottish food at Deeny's.

Deeny's is a Scottish venture that sell Scottish themed toasties at markets and their cafe in Leyton. I went to look for them at Broadway Market where I found their stall with a massive queue of people waiting eagerly to order their haggis toastie.  They offer a variety of toasted sandwiches with or without haggis. They even do a veggie haggis if you are so inclined, but to me that is just cheating.

We joined the queue and waited for maybe a good ten minutes so we had a good chance to see what goes on in order to make them. The two guys manning the stall were churning out sandwiches non stop in a smooth, production-line style process. One guy prepared the bread with mustard and other trimmings and the other guy took orders while toasting the filled sandwiches with massive flat irons.

I went for a Hamish Macbeth which was filled with of course, haggis, bacon, rocket, cheese, caramelised onions and a lot of mustard. My friend Jacintha went for a cheese toastie as she was a bit apprehensive with the whole haggis thing.

I get why people were queuing up as these toasties are just the kind of stodgy food you need with early March, British weather. Although next time I would ask to hold the mustard as it was the English kind, burning up my taste buds.

  3. Well I'm rather honoured that you finished your world tour in Scotland and those haggis toasties look incredible. Not something I've actually seen in Scotland, at least not in those huge chunks of bread. Not sure about the mustard either, good haggis should be peppery enough without mustard, a bit of ketchup goes a treat with haggis or some whisky sauce, of course.

    1. haha, i think these were just posh haggis sandwiches really. I had an awesome haggis and neeps and tatties when I was in Aviemore once. Loved it.
