MacNiven's serves Indy's best haggis, the traditional Scottish dish immortalized by Robert Burns in his 1787 poem "Address to a Haggis." Haggis is a dish containing lamb liver and pork heart, minced with onions and oats and simmered for about three hours. Served with tatties (mashed potatoes) and neeps (turnips). It's an acquired taste. To see if you can acquire it, try MacNiven's haggis sampler, "a wee portion" of Scottish haggis served with brown bread and whipped butter. With a warm décor of dark wood and brick, plus framed pictures of Scotland and some TVs, MacNiven's offers a large selection of Scotch and more than 100 beers. MacNiven's has two separate doors, one for the bar and one for the restaurant.
