The Sisters Jordanhill is the original venture of Jacqueline & Pauline O’Donnell who have been filling the tummies of hungry Glasgwegians for 15 years. Back then they used to tell people ‘big sis cooks, wee sis serves’ and that is broadly still true today. Jaqueline is in charge of the food, turning out hearty homemade Scottish fayre and Pauline keeps everything running smoothly out front.
Located just off Crow Road the Sisters is handy and popular among West Enders, but is well worth seeing out. Wood panneling, stone cladding and tartan highlights give the restaurant a rustic, traditionally Scottish feel. In the summer (weather permitting) sit out on the charming terrace, romantically lit by flickering hurricane lamps as the sun goes down.
The Scottish feel to the decor is reflected in the comfortingly traditional homecooking. Jaqueline love serving up recognisable dishes, the sort of thing your gran might have made, but treated with such attention to detail and care that they always feel special. Scottish produce takes prime billing, the menu features haggis, of course, as well as game and fantastic Scottish seafood. Puddings are a definitely highlight, including their now famous clootie dumpling and puff candy meringue and ice cream.
The staff are as friendly and enthusiastic about the food and cooking as the sisters themselves, and are always happy to talk to you about the provenance of the produce and make recommendations if you’re swithering between choices.
If you’re after hearty food in warm and cosy surroundings you definitely want to wander up Crow Road and visit The Sisters.
