In the midst of my Edinburgh Festival pop-up and street food odyssey, I found myself in Glasgow in desperate need of a bacon roll. Given that my Festival diet of veggie delights was continuinh apace, I felt a bacon roll in the west was entirely in order.
I’m not well-acquainted with Glasgow breakfast options, so simply wandered straight ahead out of the train station, and didn’t stop until I met a suitable looking bacon roll emporium.
This turned out to be Zebra, a curious little place, whose interior and décor was rather too reminiscent of an airport lounge, for my tastes.
The welcome was friendly, and I was invited to choose from a range of reasonably-priced breakfast options. For £2 I could have had a bacon roll with a coffee, but I’m not the hugest fan of Lavazza, so opted just for the roll.
It promptly appeared, in a neat little wrapping. The roll looked good and proved to be tasty. A couple of slices of well-cooked back bacon were encased in a good, brown roll. Without too much fuss, it hit the spot very nicely.
So overall, Zebra, in much the same way as The Sizzler, seemed like a no-nonsense, cheap and cheerful breakfast roll purveyor. It met my needs, so I was pleased with my visit, and I dare say I’ll pop in again, next time I’m passing.
