Eating out around East Kilbride is a real experience; Flavours range from authentic Italian eateries to restaurants that resemble more of a cultural immersion than a meal.
Take the Nepalese and Indian restaurant, the Wee Gurkha Curry House, for example. A stone's throw away from our new builds in East Kilbride, the owners of this curry house have made a concerted effort to only use herbs local to Nepal – and have foregone excessive fat and salt for subtler, more authentic seasoning.
But this commitment to authentic cultural experiences is not unique to the Wee Gurkha Curry House.
No, in East Kilbride you will find restaurants like the Italian diner, Arigo, that swap out generic cliches like Spaghetti Bolognese for authentic Italian dishes that make you feel like you are in Italy.
However, what would a Scottish town be without traditional Scottish favourites?
Places such as the homely café, Loupin Stone, serve up a delicious all-day Scottish breakfast.
Or why not experience pieces of East Kilbride’s history while you eat by visiting the Torrance Hotel?
A building that dates back to 1773 (pre-dating East Kilbride itself), the Torrance Hotel boasts a beautiful beer garden and an open and airy conservatory that has been converted into a fine dining restaurant.
More than anything else though, East Kilbride is a place for families. Why not take your kids to the Hungry Horse which offers free breakfast for kids between 8 am and 12 pm?
