Traditional dishes from restaurants in Kilmarnock
Kilmarnock has a long and noble history when it comes to traditional dishes. Haggis is a famous example of classic Scottish fare, albeit an acquired taste. The dish consists of inexpensive cuts of offal seasoned with various herbs and sealed in an edible bag concocted from the stomach of a sheep or pig. Similarly, the Scots use lentils and barley generously in many of their dishes, and barley soup is another wholesome dish originating from the area. Cullen sink is a thick and nutritious soup of smoked haddock, onion and potatoes and was the staple diet of many industrial workers during the 19th century.
