Haggis, Scotch eggs and meat pies

abstractpoet | Sep 7, 2009 01:07 PM

I attended the Scotish Highland Games in Pleasanton yesterday (fun event) and though a lot of the grub available there was fairly nondescript, I did enjoy some haggis with gravy (a first for me), a pretty good Scottish meat pie and a Scotch egg--which for those who don't know is a peeled hard-boiled egg that's then covered in sausage meat and baked. All of it was surprisingly tasty--especially the haggis! The meat pie we sampled had ground meat in it, but they had various steak pies too.

Is there any restaurant, store or street vendor where I could obtain a good version of these items in the Bay Area (preferably in the Oakland/Berkeley vicinity)?

At the event, the vendor that was selling the pies and the Scotch eggs was "Heritage Meat Pies", but I couldn't tell if they were locally based--didn't seem like it.
