Attention Glasgow foodies! There’s a new kid on the block when it comes to the Merchant City food scene: The Chimney Cake Corporation is bringing traditional European chimney cakes (otherwise known as Kürtőskalács or Trdelník) to Scotland with their own unique twist.
Not only can you get your teeth stuck into classic sweet chimney cakes (I’m talking the likes of nutella, oreos, biscoff, or just a simple yet delicious coating of cinnamon sugar…) but savoury ones too! I shared the smoked salmon chimney cake with a friend, and we thought it was fantastic. I wouldn’t automatically think to order a savoury option when eating somewhere like this but was really impressed (if a little surprised) by how well it worked. The dough itself was lovely and savoury with a slight crust and I’d definitely recommend giving savoury chimney cakes a go.
Obviously I couldn’t leave without devouring a “Biscoff Overload” chimney cake with honeycomb ice cream…
The Biscoff Overload consists of a chimney cake with biscoff sauce, spread, whipped cream, ice cream and lotus biscuit – what a dream! The dough itself was deliciously soft and buttery – a perfect match for some temptingly sweet fillings. The cake itself was actually lined with a coating of biscoff spread and I was really impressed that the filling went all the way to the bottom, meaning you’re not going to be left with a disappointing mouthful of plain dough to finish.
Definitely give this place a visit – with friendly staff, delicious food and a wide variety of chimney cakes on the menu, The Chimney Cake Corporation on High Street is an ideal spot for catching up with friends whilst trying out some of Glasgow’s newest eats!
