La Tea Doh
I made a hamper of Scottish goods as a present for a English friend recently. The pack was made up of goodies from Deli 1901 on Skirving Street, Cheese from Gusto and Relish on Pollokshaws Road and a large selection of unusual little things from the wonderful La Tea Doh on Nithsdale Road.
Its a bit of a feature in the area having opened in 1997 and they run on the ethos of trying to source as many products and ingredients from locally like minded businessess as possible.
Its a tiny little shop but it packs so much into its small space as you can see from the below photos. Huge range of preserves, oatcakes and breads and as the shop name suggests an equally large range of teas. I'd just had my lunch prior to going out shopping so was too full to try and any of the tasty sounding fresh sandwhiches on offer and had to be very strong not to buy one of the extremely delicious looking cakes. They do take out foo with a good menu or there are are a few tall chairs at a counter in the window where you could while away some time drinking tea and watching the people bustle by on Nithsdale Road.

Its also the celeb hang out it seems as the customer infront of me while I pondered the multitude of items on the shelf was none other than Tagart star Blythe Duffy. Which got me thinking I wonder how many locations in the Southside have been used/ featured in Taggart - think that might be worth a wee investigation. If anyone knows of any then let us know.
