Simon Howie's chocolate haggis pudding is deep fried in sweet batter by Berties and served with caramel sauce and ice cream to create the perfect Burns Night pudding.

And Berties owner Alberto Crolla told the Evening News that the deal has gone down well with his customers, who he said are in "that haggis spirit" on Burns Night. Adding that those brave enough to try the unusual dish have really enjoyed it.

The first 100 customers who asked for the chocolate haggis pudding today and said “it’s banging”, received the free treat from the Edinburgh restaurant, with the offer running until 9pm tonight.
