McNie’s Fish & Chips in Etobicoke

We wanted to celebrate Robbie Burns Day with some haggis. This Scottish dish of sheep’s heart, liver and lung is seasoned and mixed with suet and oatmeal then boiled in the sheep’s stomach. At McNie’s, they deep fry it. Not traditional, but way yummier.

So you if you are looking for haggis in Toronto that’s a little easier to swallow, check out McNie’s. Call first to order as this is a popular menu item on Robbie Burns weekend. Not for traditionalists perhaps, but you can at least recite Burns’s Grace or the Selkirk Grace first. This is a short prayer you are meant to read prior to eating your mashed up sheep parts:

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.

Gie her a (deep-fried) haggis! McNie’s is located at 315 Burnhamthorpe Road in Etobicoke.

  1. McNie’s use to have locations in Oakville and Scarborough, by far the best Fish and Chips I have ever had. Being a Scot, warms my heart to see that Haggis is still on some restaurants menus. Must admit i haven’t had Haggis in about 10-12 years, when my late fatherin law’s pipe band use to host Robbie (or Rabbie) Burns nights.
