The great Anthony Bourdain left his mark everywhere he went. When his death was announced to the world in June 2018, media throughout the globe chimed in and listed all the great things he had done for their respective city, town, province, country. Whereas before, tourists would shy away from exotic foods, thanks to him, travellers now go the extra mile to find and try local bites. With this in mind, here are all the restaurants Bourdain visited and the dishes he tasted when he shot Anthony Bourdain Scotland for his show, Parts Unknown Season 5 Episode 4 (originally aired May 10, 2015):
DRINK – Pale Lager
WHAT IS IT?
As the name suggests, it is a light-colored to gold-colored lager
with varying degrees of bitterness.
WHERE IS IT?

Unfortunately, this restaurant has since closed its doors.
According to the bartender, the pub opened in 1510, making
it the oldest in Scotland. Here, Anthony Bourdain enjoyed his pint of Tennent’s
with the light being “just right” and the room “not too crowded”. In Parts Unknown
Scotland, he described the Old College Bar as a place where “you can have a
drink in a dignified fashion, free of care”.
The University Café has been in business since 1918 and has
been serving deep-fried goodies for the past century. Here, Anthony Bourdain
enjoyed their Fish and Chips made of deep-fried battered haddock and fries with
curry sauce and cheese. He also had deep-fried haggis with curry sauce.
