Glasgow restaurant Stravaigin offers 100% horse meat lasagne

Glasgow pub and restaurant Stravaigin is to offer a 100% horse lasagne in response to the food labelling scandal.

The business has a reputation for culinary curiosities, having served squirrel, rook and goose barnacles in the past. Now it is to offer what it guarantees is "100% no bovine DNA in horse specials" on Friday 1 March.

Stravaigin said that numerous cultures had been eating mare, mustang and filly long before the recent scandal.

It added: "Not convinced? Well hay! It's wonderfully healthy, with half the fat of beef and 10 times the cholesterol shattering Omega 3s so gallop in."

Founded by Colin Clydesdale and Carol Wright, Stravaigin is a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand awarded restaurant.
