Though once classified as a brutish ogre, the Loch Ness Monster has since charmed Scotland with her brooding poetry, her intimidating skills as a goalkeeper, and her popular bargain-hunting show, Ness is More. Reacquaint yourself with other Scottish traditions with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of cuisine at Molly MacPherson's Scottish Pub & Grill, located in Fourth Ward. This Groupon is not valid for alcoholic drinks.
Using recipes passed down from the owner's Scottish ancestors, Molly MacPherson's menu is stocked with cuisine traditionally served in the Scottish highlands. Start with the golden-fried Guinness-battered onion rings ($6.50) or the potato scones, garnished with sliced almonds and served with sweet raspberry preserves ($5). The homemade Scottish meatloaf emanates savory smells, served with a heaping of garlic smashed potatoes and fresh veggies ($11), and the Blackwatch burger satiates stomachs with a half-pound of grilled highland beef ($8, add cheese or bacon for $0.75 each). For dessert, toss out your makeshift edible kilt and snack on the sticky toffee pudding, a warm sponge cake baked with toffee sauce ($5).
With the occasional bagpipe player or highland dancer and diners wearing Scottish regalia, you'll experience several facets of Scotland's rich culture. Saddle into your whiskey-powered car, pop in your Patrick Stewart Sings Scottish Techno cassette, and fill up on authentic Scottish grub with a meal at Molly MacPherson's Scottish Pub & Grill.
