Lunch in Glasgow - Best Healthy Eating Options
Healthy eating? Not the first thing you think of when you think of Glasgow, but there are options out there. Here are a list of healthy lunch options in Glasgow for when you are feeling virtuous:
The healthiest (with a bit of badness too) is Marthas. Here you can get a roll and sausage, but the menu is actually far tastier. In a city full of grease and sandwiches, here you can get delicious spicy pork ramen soup, their amazing red dragon pork as well as veggie curries, wraps and much more. Vegans and vegetarians are catered for as standard instead of being a freaky addition - a veggie oasis!

If you fancy getting something to take out, you can sit in, but if there isn’t much space here head to Babu Bombay Kitchen.
Babu Bombay Kitchen
Operated by the amazing Rachna, her enthusiasm for life and food can be tasted in every dish. Babu Bombay Kitchen serves everything from tiffin boxes to breakfast Bombay/Glasgow style with the use of a Morton’s roll instead of a pau. You can find her at events, markets as well as the Glasgow Mela.
186 W Regent St, Glasgow
This is carnivore hell. Stereo caters primarily for the vegetarian and vegan Glaswegians, the menu offers tapas (special offer on a Monday five for £12) as well as pizzas, curries and more. The basement is a music venue and club and there is of course free WIFI for the geeks. It’s laid back with Sam Smiths on tap as well as Williams Bros beers and a non-clubbers loving 3am licence. Dietary restrictions are no problem here with soya milk and more on offer.
22-28 Renfield Ln, Glasgow
