Platform ice cream sandwich

A NEWLY-styled street food concept has been announced for Platform set in Glasgow’s iconic Argyle Street Arches in the catacombs of Glasgow Central Station. 

Platform indoor food market will now be home to Scotland’s largest casual restaurant and street food kitchen, in a massive transformation of the 35,000 sq ft space, seating up to 350 people comfortably with safety and social distancing front of mind.

Launching a new look and contemporary collaborative menu, the new Platform has been completely reconceptualised to create a welcoming socially-distant state-of-the-art restaurant that includes a high-tech thermal scanner, custom-built ordering app, online bookings, along with daily allocated walk-in tables and more.

Meanwhile, in the kitchen, the new menu is dedicated to exciting street food flavours influenced from Asia, Italy to New York and feature dishes such as sticky Korean fried chicken bites or cauliflower bites, slow-cooked tender beef brisket curry with coconut, raita, chilli and Asian slaw, homemade pizzas and hand-cut plates of pasta from their international menu. 

 Scott McCormick, Platform owner, said: “Like most businesses, we have had to evolve and adjust to a new normal, and the opportunity to create Scotland’s largest casual dining

restaurant and street food kitchen will hopefully be one of the few

positives to come out of this pandemic.”
