Maybe it's only popular here where I am, but the restaurants have it, even the frozen ones in the grocery store has it. Either way, it shouldn't be there in the first place.
My mum makes a great Scottish dish, Tatties and Mince, (mashed potatoes and minced beef) it looks very similar to this, but the meat and potatoes are served separated. Although it doesn't take long to mix them up into 1 big pile of food :-)
