Tonight I was here to attend an event, but I arrived a little early and was very hungry so I thought let’s have a little snack.

This was my first time in this Cafe, and looking around it had a nice look and tonight it had a nice atmosphere.

The Food…

Haggis Bonbons £6.50
With Johnnie Walker Gold label Whiskey Sour Dressing

This was just a little snack as I didn’t want to fill myself up too much, plus I had a very big lunch.

On arrival, this looked nice and also smelled nice and a perfect size for a starter or snack.

This was very nice, the coating was just crispy and no more and the flavours were really good. I could have easily had more, but it was just a snack.

Overall

Overall from my short experience before the event, it was nice and relaxing and the food I had tonight was nice.

Here is a place I would visit again, but this part of the West End I don’t tend to visit too much but if I do I will stop in again and check out the food and drinks.

My Heverlee Beer Delivery

The guys at Heverlee Beer contacted me and asked if I would like to try their beer and since I always like trying new food and drinks I accepted.

I received it just over a week ago, but due me driving more I couldn’t drink it till tonight.

I was at work when a BIG box arrived for me, and I knew this had to be the beer but I didn’t expect it too big this big.

It was time to open the package and see what was inside…

Wow, this was very cool, I never expect to get so many items so it was a great surprise.

I took the box home and emptied the contents

This was a great delivery, so it was time to check out the glass.

 

And there was more….even some chocolates 🙂

When Heverlee contacted me, to be honest, I only half recognised the name so I took to Google to have a little read about them.

Heverlee is a Belgium beer and a very nice light beer.

Heverlee is normally served in a chalice glass which is to preserve the beer head. The foam is then normally sliced off with a knife, which is known as ‘beheading’ and doing this removes the larger bubbles, which tend to cause the head to deteriorate faster, protecting the liquid underneath from exposure to the air and maintaining the head’s bitter aromas.

The artwork on the case, the beer, bag and glass were designed by the world-renowned Belgian street-artist DZIA. If you want to see more of his artwork click HERE

As I said at the start of this post, I had the beer for just over a week but only just getting round to drinking it as I have 2 days where I won’t be driving.

This is a very nice light beer and had a really nice taste to it. Heverlee will be now added to my top beers to order when I go out for a drink.

Thanks to the guys at Heverlee for contacting me, this was a great gift and a really nice beer.

Cheers.

Are you shocked? yes I did order something different….but how was it?

This was very tasty, the sauce added that extra mmmm and the chicken cooked perfectly.

Portion size as always here was very good! and something I would order again…but it still doesnt beat my normal order here.
