Come and experience a true taste of Dundee & Angus by sampling the region's delicious local produce. From mouth-watering seafood and rich meats, to pastries and soft fruits, these excellent local flavours feature heavily on restaurant menus across the area.

Arbroath Smokies

The county of Angus is home to one of Scotland's most distintive fish dishes, the Arbroath Smokie and no visit to the area is complete without sampling this world-famous delicacy. Smokies are made by smoke-curing haddock over hot oak chips, giving the fish a strong flavour and rich, golden colour. The Smokie has protected status from the European Union which means only haddock smoked using traditional methods within a five-mile radius of Arbroath can officially use the name ‘Arbroath Smokie’.

Pay a visit to the fishing town of Arbroath and you won’t have to look far to find fish shops selling Smokies. Or why not head to the But ‘n’ Ben Restaurant in Auchmithie, the original birthplace of the Smokie to try their famous Smokie pancakes?

Soft fruits

Dundee & Angus is not only renowned for seafood. During the summer months savour berries cultivated in Angus’ rich red earth at one of the many fruit farms and discover the tayberry, a cross between a blackberry and a red raspberry and unique to Angus. Head to Charleton Fruit Farm and pick your own raspberries, strawberries and more for a real taste of the Scottish summer. 

Savoury pastries

For another unique Dundee & Angus dish, visit the town of Forfar, well known for its local delicacy, the Forfar bridie. A meat pastry not unlike a Cornish pastie, the bridie consists of a short crust pastry turnover filled with mince and onions. Try a freshly baked bridie from local baker James McLaren & Son in the town centre.
