Charcoals (Merchant City, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I visited Charcoals loads many years ago, and due to life getting in the way and also owning a car that stopped.

Where Charcoals used to the, the main one it was always very difficult to park plus driving in town is crazy.

I noticed recently that it had now moved to what was Charcoals Cafe and had to take a visit.

The Food

I had a nosy at the menu before visiting, and knew what I wanted to order.

Allo Tikki £3.95
An Indian street food made with mashed potatoes, peas and onions.

I wanted to try something completely different to what I normally order, and this caught my attention.

On arrival this looked very nice, and smelt really good….so now it was time to taste.

This was very tasty, it had the perfect slight crunch to it followed by a great flavour.

I would easily have this again, and the best part it was light and I knew I had space for my main.

Kofta Curry £12.95
Kofta is a family meat ball dishes famous in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

Tonight I opted for the Kofta Curry and some rice rather than naan etc

I had not had Kofta Curry for a long time so I was looking forward to this.

On arrival I was hit with an amazing smell, and it looked so so good!

I plated up and tasted.

WOW! this had a lovey flavour, the sauce was really nice and i loved the flavour. The meat balls were very tender, and packed a great flavour and all of it combines just created a really amazing and mega moreish dish.

I am not just saying this, but I enjoyed every single bite!

Mango lassi

A must for me when I visit and Indian restaurant!

This is my favourite drink, and I have made my own at home.

If you like smoothies then you need to try a mango lassi if you havent ever had one.
