Chicken Tikka Masala: A British National Dish
So how did a traditional dish from the sub-continent make its way onto a blog…
Have you ever been in this situation before? You’re roaming around Scotland’s “biggest, fiercest, and most exciting city” (Glasgow, of course) at about midnight, when you have the sudden urge to eat a full fried Scottish breakfast on a bun. Where would you go to satisfy your craving? The Maggie, of course.

According to a street food blogger, “the bacon is thick cut and salty, the sunny-side up egg is oily, and the slice of processed cheese is gooey and coagulated. The result is a burger that looks, feels, and tastes like it should be illegal,” and one satisfied Glaswegian says, “Quite frankly, you haven’t lived if you haven’t tried a Scoobie Snack from the Maggie. On the flipside, if you try it on a regular basis, chances are you’re not going to live for very long.” Let’s just say that this bit of Britain ought to be enjoyed in moderation.

So if you’re ever out wandering the streets of Glasgow between 10 AM and midnight, and you find yourself near Queen Margaret Drive, and you’re in the mood for a truly magnificent, artery-clogging experience, Maggie’s Van is where you need to be because the Scooby Snack is always on the menu.
