this is my first time trying haggis. this is not the traditional way. but, yeah it was good. i had haggis pizza. it was mushy i able to spread it all over the pizza. i enjoyed it very much. the serve was ok. you have to hail them like a taxi. the resturant reminds me of TGI FRIDAYS. lots of old kik nacks everwhere. i will try it the traditional way. haggis was not salty. the texture is similar to rizzuto.
Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish.
There are many recipes, but it is normally made with the following ingredients: sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs, minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal's stomach for approximately an hour.
Haggis somewhat resembles stuffed intestines (pig intestines otherwise known as chitterlings or the kokoretsi of traditional Greek cuisine.), sausages and savoury puddings of which it is among the largest types. As the 2001 English edition of the Larousse Gastronomique puts it, "[a]lthough its description is not immediately appealing, haggis has an excellent nutty texture and delicious savoury flavour."
