As alluded to in the Jones & Son review, the Boxsmall market is so much better than it was last year and while the location isn’t entirely visible to passing trade, I think there’s the opportunity for it to build a really appreciative audience, this year.

Having given the burgers a good going over, and having already reviewed Orinoco, Rabbie’s, Knight’s Kitchen, Kampung Ali, and Maki & Ramen, my attention turned to Howie’s first venture into street food fare.

I was in the mood for their haggis, neeps and tatties (£5.95), so ordered them from the charmingly vague counter woman. Clearly expecting most of the trade to be from tourists, she asked if I’d had haggis before, then when I asked where the haggis was from she described it as “authentically Scottish” rather than being able to name the supplier (or indeed if they were making it themselves).

Anyhoo, she portioned things up into a takeaway box and I was soon sitting in the covered seating area to munch things.

It proved to be good eating with nicely seasoned tatties, good haggis, and really fresh and flavourful neeps. It hit the spot very nicely.

So overall, I enjoyed what Howie’s were serving from their stall. I’m often asked for good places to try haggis so I will be sure to point people here as a good bet to sample this Scottish delicacy on favourable terms. You should give it a visit, too.
