OUR resident foodie rates Glasgow's best bars and restaurants in his weekly Power Rankings. 

1. Ramen Ramen (N/E)

A relatively new arrival on Bath Street with a cult following. Ramen Ramen stepped up during lockdown, providing nourishing, hearty spicy, flavourful deliveries of authentic Japanese dishes. You can now visit them in real-life. Big bowls of noodles to put a smile on your face. 

2. Bread Meats Bread (N/E)

Glasgow Times:

The end of an era as Bread Meats Bread closed on St Vincent Street last week. Still available in the West End and at The Fort, with a new, bigger city centre venue opening in September. In the meantime, all this change has folk craving their classic burger-based menu. 

3. Epicures by Cail Bruich (Down Two) 

Glasgow Times:

What Cail Bruich did next. Brunch is back in Hyndland. Go for smoked salmon, on rye and ale bread, cream cheese and a sprinkling of caviar. Freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries to takeaway. Don’t leave without a cronut. 

4. Errol’s Hot Pizza (Down One)

Very small pizza shop on Victoria Road. Their description. Get in early for pre-order and collection. Thick crust, crispy base, wide slices for folding, memorable toppings. Errol’s Hot Pizza is in demand. 

5. Elena’s (Down Three)

A friendly neighbourhood place with an impressive tapas menu and convenient outside seating area that’s become increasingly popular in recent weeks. Chorizo in cider or Iberian cured ham and manchego cheese.
