A new Italian restaurant which will allow picky customers to choose exactly how they want their food is coming to Scotland.
As well as being able to talk to their chef directly, and choose unusual ingredients like strawberries or figs in their pasta, they can also garnish their dishes picking fresh herbs from the numerous basil and rosemary plants dotted outside and inside the venue.
Vapiano restaurant already has around 190 venues around the world and plans another two - one in Edinburgh and another in Glasgow before the end of the year.
The German owned chain which has opened restaurants in five continents since 2002 and is a favourite with Corrie stars Tina O Brien and Brooke Vincent in Manchester promises to give customers more choice by preparing fresh food according to your wishes right in front of your eyes.
It means customers won't be able to complain that something is too salty, spicey, tomatoey, creamy, cheesy or that their pasta is too hard.
Vapiano means go slowly in Italian and customers can also ask for up to three times extra portions of beef, chicken, prawns and salmon in their dishes and even put ingredients from other dishes in their pasta if they want.
With a selection of pizzas, pastas, antipasti, salads and desserts on offer it puts food control back in the hands of diners.
Eleven types of pasta and fresh pizza dough are made daily in the premises and salad dressings, bread and dolce are also made on site too.
The restaurant, which is a favourite of wrestler David Hayes who obviously asks for double portions, will shortly open a three-floor, £1 million venue in Edinburgh's St Andrews Square also plans a Glasgow branch in the old Virgin Megastore building within the next few months.
Phil Sermon, Managing Director at Vapiano, said: "The Vapiano teams in Edinburgh and Glasgow are getting ready for opening, bringing the freshest range of pizzas, pastas, antipasti and salads to diners in both cities.
"The unique concept at Vapiano sees our visitors greeting their chef, ordering directly from them, resulting in a tailored dish made just how they like it! If diners want it extra spicy, add a touch more chili. Or if they want to really indulge in their favourite prawn dish, they can ask for a double portion. Once you're back to your seat, you can then pick additional garnish for your plate from the herb crates on the table.
"Whether you're wanting to grab a quick lunch to keep you going for the rest of the working day or you're heading out at the weekend for a relaxed meal and drinks with friends, Vapiano is perfect for a brilliantly fresh italian meal."
