The Visit

I had wanted to visit their first store for a while, but I was never really in the area.

When I saw they were opening up along from where I work I thought woohoo I cant wait to check it out.

Romania was a big part of my life in the last few years, and I still have many Romanian friends so I had to check it out and let them know how it was.

The Goodies

I didn’t feel like getting proper food today, so it was a mix of sweets etc.

Dracula Chocolate cake £4
Dracula loves his chocolate, so we bring you the best 3 layers of chocolate cake in Town

I thought lets try a cake, and chocolate is the must have for me so I opted for this Dracula Chocolate cake.

This was very sweet and had a lovely texture.

From my time in Romania I know they add rum? into the cakes but a specific kind which I am not a big fan off…but this was very subtle and added to the flavour.

As you probably guessed it was completely finished.

Prajitura cu crema de lapte 35g Magura

The only word I knew was Lapte which translates to milk…so I guessed it was like a creamy chocolate bar….I was right.

I took a bite into this and ohhh very nice, sweet and soft.

If you like cake bars over here you will enjoy this…this is one I will be getting again.

Burn Energy drink

I spotted this on their Instagram and thought ohh I need to try this out.

When I visited Romania I never really looked for energy drinks, so this would be something new for mew to try.

I had this with my lunch and here is what I thought.

This was very tasty, I cant pinpoint what the flavour is but its a nice subtle flavour…and very easy to drink.

For me this was REALLY good and I can see myself buying this many times when I need a wee boost.

Iced caramel Latte

We all need a wee coffee in the morning to get our engines going, and today I opted for an iced latte with some caramel.

Since the weather was still warm this was a perfect start to the day, something cool and coffee to get me going.

This was very nice, it was a nice strong cold coffee with a nice subtle caramel flavour.

I can see me getting this again when I know I have a busy day at work.

Overall :

Being inside here brought back so many lovely memories I had of Romania, all the happy times.

Everything I got today was really good, next time I will try their food.

If your in the area do check them out.

The Madhouse Bakery (Glenrothes) 2021 : Review

The Visit

This was a random find as I had just tried to do my skydive, but due to winds I had to cancel and try and change it for another day….but I was hungry and it was near lunch time so I opened my maps and just clicked here and drove to its location.

How cool and nice looking is this place inside? I loved the design and all the little bits and bobs inside it was very cute…I am glad I found this place.

The Brunch

Hot Filled Roll : Bacon and Sausage £2.60 (Doubler £3.40)

I wanted sausage today so I opted for this with some bacon.

This was cooked perfectly and the bacon was VERY nice and tasty.

It was a perfect mouthful and filled the hole in my stomach nicely.

Overall :

As I said I am glad I found this place, as if I am ever back out this way again I will 100% visit and try some other dishes from their menu.

Check them out.

Petite Delice (Metrocentre, Gateshead) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I wanted to go a drive but wasn’t sure where, as I am keeping a few drives to do with friends so I decided….lets try the Metrocentre in Newcastle.

Its not too far a drive from Glasgow, but an early start was needed so there was enough time to check out the shops.

While walking about I wanted to try somewhere random rather than a KFC etc and this is where I choose.

The Food

I wasn’t too hungry so I thought lets try their Panini’s

Panini Tuna Mayo £4.95

I liked this café, I sat outside in the little village section which was done like an old village…very cool.

Presentation was nice, and it looked really good.

This was very nice, personally it could have had a little more tuna mayo on it but that’s a personal preference.
