Henderson’s Salad Table: haggis to everybody’s taste

Attention all animal lovers: you no longer have to devour what looks like, smells like, feels like, tastes like and IS a sheep’s minced and spiced pluck in order to enjoy the national dish of Scotland: haggis. There is an alternative that smells like, feels like, tastes like and IS NOT sheep but rather lentils, beans and a bunch of vegetables (don’t worry, the look is the same: for the real haggis-feeling!). And you can taste it at Henderson’s, one of UK’s first vegetarian restaurants, so they know how to do it.

There are several Henderson’s branches throughout the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town catering to different customers’ tastes: Shop & Deli, which is the original farm shop, where founders Mac and Janet first sold their Lothian Farm produce, The Salad Table, the self-service restaurant located beneath the Deli, Henderson’s Vegan Restaurant and a branch at Holyrood. Wherever you are in central Edinburgh, a Henderson’s is always close by. The relaxed atmosphere is complimented by a minimalist retro interior. Without trying too hard, Henderson’s attracts hip students and white-collar workers on their lunch break alike.

Especially if you prefer locally sourced, fresh and organic ingredients over the rather high-fat foods you find in most self-service restaurants, which are mainly fast-food, this is the place to be! Whether you love salads, which do not just have to consist of green lettuce, a warm, hearty meal or a sweet treat, the vegetarian and vegan foods here leave nothing to be desired. You have to give the vegan haggis a go: traditional haggis spices give it the perfect taste and even the texture is right, achieved with a mixture of what seems to be lentils, beans, mushrooms and onions. Together with mashed “neeps and tatties” as well as a delicious gravy and the two salads you have a filling, but healthy meal and you will feel ready to venture out into the Edinburgh weather, whatever it’s like that minute. £8.50 a portion might seem a lot but you definitely get your money’s worth, if you want to enjoy this modern twist on the traditional Scottish meal.
