Award-winning world restaurant giraffe has opened its doors in Glasgow city centre.

The new restaurant, located on the corner of West Regent and West Nile streets, follows the opening of giraffe in Silverburn

The popular eatery says that the freshest ingredients from favoured producers feature in its carefully crafted dishes.

The menu reads like a guidebook of the world's favourite foods. Dishes vary from comforting and familiar classics to global dishes with a 'giraffe' twist for culinary explorers.

The brand new menu includs Salt & Pepper Squid with sriracha & lime aioli, Halloumi Skewers with courgette, pea & mint salad, basil & parsley oil and Firecracker Chicken Katsu in a peanut & coconut curry sauce.There is also giraffe's delicious salads such as the Salmon & Green Veggie or Marrakech Market Salad.  

For some, a reason to visit giraffe is to sample their burgers - which might explain why the menu features six varieties of the mighty patty topped with a wealth of flavours from across the world. Meat and two bun fans can keep things simple with "The Giraffe" topped with smoky bacon & mature cheddar; spice it up with the Mexican Chicken with chorizo, manchego, guacamole, roasted corn & tomato relish; or go meat free with the best-selling Falafel Deluxe with grilled pepper, halloumi, carrot, beetroot, tzatziki, red pepper & harissa hummus.

At giraffe, little ones are just as important as the grown-ups and have their very own menu of healthy mini-mains, desserts and drinks complete with puzzles and games to keep them entertained. Try the Kids Burger, Sunny Schnitzel & Salad or Twist & Jive Pasta, followed by a cheeky Banana Split Sundae or Fresh Chopped Fruit Bowl.

Cocktails make their mark with a combination of classics and 'Fresh Mixology'. From the first section cool down expert blends including the Melon Margarita, Mango & Lime Daquiri, Mojito, Melon Margarita and Southern Sour. Or, for something a bit different why not try Rose Collins - with rose syrup, gin & lemon juice. There's also coffee made with hand-picked coffee beans, fresh juices and healthy and refreshing smoothies.

giraffe opens Monday to Saturday 8am-11pm and Sunday 10am-10pm
