Well, according to the Daily Mail, the Salt and Chilli Chicken (Salt and Chilli box) from Salt & Chilli Oriental is officially the most ordered dish in Glasgow on Deliveroo, cementing its position as one of the best eateries in the city.
The Chef’s grab-and-go business offers a taste of Hong Kong’s street food, bringing together both Eastern and Western cultures. The original Salt & Chilli site is located in Glasgow’s West End, and have been successfully followed by further branches in Edinburgh at St James Quarter and a pop-up venture in Glasgow Hamilton.
