Charcoals (Glasgow) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

The last visit to Charcoals I was acting as a judge, this was a hard task for me as I have known Muhammad for a long time, but I put my judge cap on and did the judging fairly.

I wanted to return after the results whatever they were as I do like a wee Charcoals visit.

Today I brought a new friend to check out Charcoals as we had both been at the gym and worked up a good appetite.

The Food

I wanted either a curry or a biriyani. I don’t know why they were what I felt like but it’s the only two dishes that popped into my mind.

Lamb Chops Tandoori
Tender Chops cooked over Charcoal.

While waiting for my main Muhammad was kind enough to bring us a wee extra dish and it was these Lamb Chops.

I have had these here before and wow very very good.

I took a bite and mmm the flavour exploded in my mouth, the lamb was very tender and it was an amazing bite….well every bite! it was so good!

If you visit Charcoals you need to check these out of your a lamb fan and let me know what you think.

Chicken Biryani £14.95
A popular Mixed Rice Dish with Chicken.

I have been out with a friend a lot this year and she has always felt like grabbing a biriyani, and I think that’s why I am now fancying these more and more recently.

I spotted Charcoals did them so I had to order one.

On arrival, this was a MASSIVE portion! and after the lovely lamb chops, I knew I would be up for a challenge to finish this…if I didn’t I would take it home for the next day.

Everywhere I have had this dish they do it their own way, and serve a curry sauce or a raita sauce on the side.

This was packed with flavour, it was very tasty and very nice, adding the side sauce was also very nice but did take away some of the amazing flavours from the biriyani.

I love a biriyani with both the curry sauce or Raita, but on its own it’s such a great dish.

I really liked it tonight and would easily have it again here.

Have you tried it here? what were your thoughts?

Bread Meats Bread (Glasgow Fort) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

I took a wee drive to the Fort as it was a nice sunny day, as its a nice place to come for a walk, shops and some food.

I have not been to a Bread Meets Bread for a while, but always loved them and thought it was time to pop in again.

The Food

The last visit I had the luther Burger, and wanted to try something different…well that failed….kinda

I spotted a Chicken Luther burger and had to try that.

Chicken Luther Burger £11.50
Two caramelised glazed ringed doughnuts toasted and filed with a buttermilk fried chicken, topped with American cheese, candied bacon , gochujang mayonnaise and crispy onions.

So much for the diet lol

This looked good, smelled good and I am sure it will take just as good as the normal Luther Burger…well lets find out.

I took a bite and mmm this was an instant mmm so so good.

I loved how you had the sweetness to this, yet all the lovely chicken and cheese flavours and just an overall so so good….can you tell I liked it? lol

My only issue was the doughnuts didn’t hold well during the course of eating it, and started to break so I eventually had to use a knife and fork but that’s just a minor thing.

I could easily had another.

Cosmo World Buffet (St Enoch Centre, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

The guys at Cosmo invited me to come to their new location situated in the St Enoch Centre in Glasgow city centre. Its situated in the perfect location to grab a meal then head up to the Vue cinema for a wee movie night.

I have been to their Silverburn Shopping Centre one and it really did change my mind on buffets, as prior to my visit there I really didn’t like buffets as the food was always bland and not really good.

I was looking forward to this visit and set a date and time.

How It Looks

When walking in I was extremely impressed at how lovely and fancy this place was!

The décor was amazing and really gave off that warm, relaxing and luxurious feeling.

Tonight was very busy, but I managed to take photos where nobody was featured in them, as I don’t like taking pics of others when they are eating.

They also had a robot that took dirty dishes back to a cleaning area, this was very cool and I really liked this idea.

The Food

As you would expect from a world buffet there should be choices from most places around the world.

There were Indian, Chinese, Italian options, etc., and there was a good choice from each section.

I went for a mixed starter, and then Indian main.

The starters I chose were very nice, and I would have them again. The main was much better and I tried the butter chicken and also the sweet and sour chicken.

Both of these dishes had really nice flavour, and I was very impressed with the sweet and sour chicken as it wasn’t too vinegary which I have tasted at other buffets and even restaurants.

I even tried the sushi and again just like everything else tonight it was very fresh and tasty!.

Dessert Time!

Dessert Time! yip there is always room for dessert and I wanted to check out most of what they had on offer at tonight’s visit.

I grabbed a selection and sat down and tasted everything I picked.

My favourite was the Tiramisu but everything I choose hit my sweet tooth perfectly!

Visit Overall

I really enjoyed my visit tonight, I had a great time and really enjoyed all the food that I chose.

The food was just as good as the other branch at Silverburn, packed with flavour, fresh and very tasty!

This is a perfect spot to take a family or a date before going to see a film or after a big shop or both.

Have you been here since its opened? let me know what you thought.
