Yeah, guys finally getting round to post this as have SOOOO many posts to well post….

Something I don’t do enough is meet up with other bloggers, and today I was meeting Emma (Emma Eats) and Wendy (Weekends with Wendy) for brunch at Singl-end in Glasgow.

I have never been here before which really shocked the girls, but I never visit this back street more the main one….so let’s see what I thought of it.

First thing this place is very cute inside, and if your a dog owner then this is a great place for you as its dog-friendly.

Since it was brunch I didn’t want to eat too much in case I went out for dinner later.

The Food…

Singl-end Smoothie : Sunshine on Glasgow £4.95

This was very thick but very nice, so I would just sip this from start to end of the brunch.

It was packed with great flavours that worked really well, and I would have it again when I visit next.

Croque Monsieur £8.25

WOW ok on arrived I never expected it to be this big!!! I knew I had a challenge ahead of me….and dinner might not happen later 🙂

This was AMAZING!!!! every mouthful was great, the flavours overall just perfect and the portion size was really good and excellent value for money.

I finished it all and felt full but not ready to explode full which is always good.

Overall

My first visit here won’t be my last, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food.

I also liked that it was dog-friendly so this is a great help to anyone that owns a dog, as there are not many places that cater to this….well for now

Everyone inside today looked very relaxed, having a nice time with friends or family….and enjoying the food…even the dogs.

This is a new one on my list that I will aim to visit again.

Yeah back again after a while, and time to try something different to my normal.

The Food…

Salt & Chilli Chips £3.90

So this was my favourite the past many many times I have visited here as it was packed with flavour, and much nicer than my local Chinese’s Salt and Chilli Chips.

hmm this was not that great, the flavour wasn’t the same and just so so.

Whatever has happened in the past few months, change of chef, ingredients this wasn’t a good change!!!! please change it back!

Flavour : 2.5

Duck Lettuce Wrap £5.50
Stir fried shredded duck with assorted minced vegetables

Yup something very different for me, but it sounded nice.

First impressions were this was a nice idea of how to eat it, so time to dig in.

Yeah this was very nice, and I loved the flavour….my only issue was it only came with 4 lettuce leafs 1 or 2 more would have been perfect as you got a lot of shredded duck.

Overall today didn’t feel the same as it has in the past for me, the atmosphere was slightly lacking and the change to the chips!!

Hopefully, this is a small blip, as my previous experiences have always been good and so has the food.

Beer52 Craft Beer Subscription: Review

Website: www.Beer52.com

I have always enjoyed drinking a beer when I am out, though normally it would be a cocktail or rum.

Around mid last year, I started doing a Craft Beer tour in my home city Glasgow, where I take a group of people around 3 breweries and they get to try some craft beer.

Craft Beer? hmm I had heard of this term but I never really looked into it much or tried many or any craft beers. Due to me being the guide I started to look into it more, and wow it’s a massive area and growing every single day.

At each of these stops, I tried the breweries own Craft Beer, and more recently one off the menu just at random to see what other ones were like.

I use an app when I am out doing these tours, and also when I go out and have a craft beer called UnTapped. Its basically like Facebook but for beer checking in. It’s a great app to use, firstly it’s free and also if you tried a beer ages ago at a place and couldn’t remember what it was just open the app and have a look…plus many more features so take a look.

While using this app I got an offer for Beer52, they are a subscription service for Craft Beers. With a promo code, I got my first box for £6.95, that was 12 beers, snack and a magazine…I couldn’t say no to this and thought let’s try it. (NOTE you are auto-enrolled into a subscription and after that first payment it’s around £25 a month unless you change the option or cancel)

My first box arrived and I had many beers to try…

Sorry guys no photos of this one, but don’t worry I continued my subscription and got a second box.

To drink all the beers from my first box, it took me a while as I am now driving more so I can’t drink and drive…

Next Months Delivery…the beers magazine and snack arrived. I won’t go into detail about all the beers, but these ones were my favourites.

The above pic of the three craft beers were my top 3 from this months box, I have found I like a dark beer that has coffee or chocolate notes to it. This is strange as my normal pub beer is a light beer, so my taste is expanding and enjoying more.

The far left beer Ninkasi Blanche WOW this was a REALLY REALLY good beer!!!!! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for this one in the shops.

Overall

This is a good service and highly recommended, you can even have it every 2 months etc they will cater the subscription to your needs. The added magazine is a really great feature, as its a good read and you will learn more about beers etc.

What I have learned about my taste is, I like a dark sweet craft beer rather than a sour one but its good to try many styles.
