Cadbury World Experience: Birmingham VLOG 2019

After my Harry Potter Studio Tour, I visited the Cadbury World Experience in Birmingham. It’s just a short video to show some of the attractions, as I don’t want to spoil it for you in case you visit.

The average visitor spends 3-4 hours at Cadbury World. The main exhibition tour has a timed ticket entry and lasts around 1.5 hours, and then there is also the 4D Chocolate Adventure, Bournville Experience, shop, cafe and play area to visit before your after your times main tour…..plus you get to see the famous Dairy Milk Gorilla.

The Western Club Restaurant (Glasgow): Review

The guys over at The Western Club Restaurant kindly invited me over to dine with them, I had never been here before so I accepted and added to my calendar.

On arrival I got a little confused as to when I walked up to the door, I saw a doorbell….at first I thought maybe they don’t open till later so I waited. After maybe 5mins someone exited and spoke to me…and then shown me to the restaurant.

Basically, the top floor is a private members club, and they like to have the door secure so this cleared things up for me…..so my next visit I will just ring the bell upon arrival.

Looking Around

Once I entered I went up to the first floor and entered the restaurant.

Wow, this place is very nice, as you can see from the above photo it has a very smart but relaxing look to it….and since it’s situated on the first floor if you get a window seat you can see Royal Exchange Square.

The Food…

I was given a menu to choose what I wanted, so it was decision time…..here’s what I choose.

Starter

Chicken liver parfait, Arran oaties and red onion chutney

I am a big fan of this dish as my starter, and as you know if you follow my posts when I have this I am mega fussy….why? well, normally you get lots of parfait and not enough to put it on….was this the case?

To be honest it was but! yes, there’s a but I just added extra to the oaties and then ate some salad with it. I didn’t mind as it was a very good parfait and I enjoyed it very much.

Main Course

Risotto of sun blushed tomatoes & spring onion, parmesan crisps, pea shoots
IMG_8790

Risotto is my second favourite Italian dish after Carbonara, so I had to try it here and see how the chef did it.

This was very nice, and not very heavy which was good as some times you can feel very bloated and too full after it in some places.

The parmesan crisp was very nice, and very moreish and worked perfectly with the dish.

Desert

Rasberry Crème Brulee

I love Crème Brulee so I had to have this option, plus the raspberry part sounded interesting.

This was really good and so good I could have easily had more, and the little biscuits just melted in your mouth.

Finally am back, that’s the one thing that’s difficult when your a food blogger is making sure you go back to the places you like while trying new places.

I was here having dinner tonight before heading to the Garage to see the band The Rasmus, so tonight I wanted to try a few different things from my last visit.

The Food…

Puri Yoghurt Bombs £4.65
Everyone’s favourite cold Indian snack! Crispy Puri with potato, yoghurt, & tamarind 

IMG_2754.jpg

So I went for these, I couldn’t remember if I had these the last time but I knew I really enjoyed them when I did have them…where ever that was.

WOW this is a great dish, the flavours and it’s so refreshing.

If you order a curry and want a refreshing end, for me this would be the perfect follow up even though its a starter.

TUK TUK Samosas (V) £4.30
Spicy pea & potato pastry

IMG_2755.jpg

This looked very nice on arrival and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

For me this was a little spicy…but I don’t have the best spice tolerance so its probably nothing if you like a good strong curry.

The flavours again, and the sauce mmmm perfect.

SEEKH KEBABS (GF) (S) £5.60
Skewered lamb mince slowly cooked in the tandoor

IMG_2756.jpg

I really like kebabs, so I thought let’s try one from here.

These were very nice but very spicy for my taste….so for me, the dish was just so so. If you like spicy foods or have a better spice threshold to me then you will probably really like these.

Overall

Overall I am glad to have gone back to Tuk Tuk, there are so many Indian restaurants in Glasgow all doing different styles and for tonight it was a perfect option.

See you soon guys.
