LOCATION: Paisley, Scotland
It’s got to be one of the most random places I’ve ever eaten but I absolutely love it! Jam Jar is one of those really quirky places you just can’t help but like. Situated right in the heart of Paisley, next to the historic Sma’ Shot Cottages, Jam Jar is a great stop for any kind of food. The menu features everything from pizza and pasta to burgers, chicken dishes and more.
They stock gluten free pasta and I have been offered the choice of penne or spaghetti on more that one occasion – it’s always nice to be given a choice. They do a gluten free burger bun (which they can also make in to garlic bread!) and the handcut chips are gluten free. I’m sure there are other options but you all know I’m a pasta lover so I don’t stray much!
My favourite dish on the menu is the chorizo and pepperoni pasta. The portions in Jam Jar are MASSIVE, however I always forget this and order a side of chips too! The burger bun makes great garlic bread and it’s always nice to have an accompaniment.
I’ve also had the Italian Job burger which was an interesting choice but definitely worth the risk! The burger comes topped with pepperoni, a napoli sauce and cheese and it is like having pizza on a burger! It is also always worth checking with the staff about the specials as these can also be made gluten free sometimes.
If you are stopping by, I’d also recommend checking out their cocktail menu! From all your favourite classics, to a sweetie themed menu and a selection of Paisley themed drinks you will definitely find the perfect drink.
