Salt & Chilli Oriental (West End, Glasgow) : Review


Salt & Chilli Oriental is from award-winning TV and Lychee Oriental chef Jimmy Lee, and its aim is to serve the best Cantonese street food.

The Takeaway

I have known Jimmy Lee for many years now, as I used to frequent his Glasgow restaurant Lychee Oriental which I highly recommend you check out as its always amazing food and the staff are lovely.

Jimmy sent me a wee message to come and visit Salt and Chilli for a takeaway and I couldn’t wait to try the food as I am sure its just as amazing as the food from Lychee Oriental.

The Goodies

The smell from these were amazing and I couldn’t wait to open them and dig right in.

Crispy Duck Rolls £n/a (normally £5.50)
Handmade 24hr Marinated Duck

Firstly as I said earlier in this post, the smells were amazing and mega mouth-watering.

I first tried one on its own with no dip, so I could taste the full flavour. WOW it was a perfect bite, had a nice little crunch, and then the flavour of the duck explodes in your mouth it was so good.

Now time to try with the dip, oh wow this adds another dimension to the flavour and for me this was the winning combo for me so so so good.

I could have easily had much much more of this, but I had the salt and chilli box to follow 🙂

Salt & Chilli Box (Inc Dip and Side) : Special £n/a (normally £11)
Wings | Rib | Chicken & Fries

As soon as I opened this box the smell hit me mmmmm everything looked and smelled good….now time to taste.

I started with the chips, firstly thin chips are always a win for me and these were very nice and had a good kick to them.

Next was the ribs, these had a really nice flavour and the meat slide right off the bone.

Lastly was the wings, again really nice flavour and perfectly cooked.
