Tartan Parade Day: Haggis with Tatties and Neeps

The Scots are justifiably proud of their bagpipers, their clan tartans, and haggis. If you want to channel your inner Scot, there’s nothing like visiting a Scottish butcher or a Scottish restaurant like St. Andrew’s in Manhattan and ordering the specialty of the house.

Haggis is diced sheep innards with seasonings and spices boiled inside sheep stomach. St. Andrew’s serves it in a ramekin with a layer of mashed potatoes on the bottom [tatties], then the haggis, then a topper of mashed turnips [neeps]. I guess the whole thing is then baked to warm it up.

Haggis is something you should try once — maybe one to be shared around. đŸ™‚
