I have been here before, so it was time to go back and have something else.

Looking around here has a very cool, modern yet relaxing atmosphere and the staff tonight were all very friendly and helpful.

The Food…

I think the last time I was here I had a burger, so it was time to be different tonight.

Main

MACARONI CHEESE WITH YOUR CHOICE OF GARLIC BREAD OR SKINNY FRIES £8.50

Macaroni cheese is one of those dishes that can be either, under cooked, over cooked, bland or very very nice.

This sounded very nice, and I decided to add a few extra toppings just to add some extra flavour.

Firstly lets start with the chips, I LOVE skinny fries any other fries for me are just meh, but skinny mmmm. These were perfectly cooked, nice taste and had a light crisp to them…perfect.

The Macaroni cheese….well this was VERY moreish!!!! The flavours were really nice on its own, and with my additions. It was cooked perfect, and I could have easily had another one.

Hard Rock Cafe Thanksgiving Dinner (Glasgow) : Review

Hard Rock Cafe (Glasgow)
179 Buchanan Street
Glasgow G1 2JZ

0141 353 8790
www.hardrock.com/cafes/glasgow

Invited : 26th November 2019


Rock ’n’ roll-themed chain with a high-energy vibe serving burgers & American classics.

I got a wee ping in my inbox asking me if I would like to visit Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow, to try their Thanksgiving menu and I accepted and put it in my calendar.

This sounded very interesting, as I have not had a Thanksgiving meal for a few years now so it would be good to have one again.

Looking Around

I have had Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow, on my list to pop in and try so I was very excited to visit tonight. I have only ever been in the London Hard Rock Cafe, so I was ready to take a look around and enjoy the food.

On entering you go through the Hard Rock Shop and through the back to get to the restaurant, I spotted a few cool things in the shop but I was a good boy and didn’t get anything since its so close to Christmas.

Inside was very cool with lots of memorabilia on the walls, classic tunes playing and had a really funky but nice and relaxing atmosphere.

I was seated at the back, for me this was good as I got a good view of the whole place.

The Food

I was invited here to have Thanksgiving dinner, which if your not familiar with Thanksgiving dinner its basically like your traditional Christmas dinner.

I was given the menu to have a look at, and then asked if they can start preparing it….of course I said yeah! as I was a hungry boy.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Slow roasted turkey breast, roasted fresh vegetables, home-style classic stuffing, creamy sweet potato mash, cranberry sauce finished with a traditional turkey gravy £15.95 (Tonight Free)

This was a good sized portion, and it smelled amazing!!! after many photos and Instagram stories, I finally started.

I tried everything on its own first, to see how it tasted and how well it was cooked.

Let me start with the Brussels sprouts, I normally avoid these guys but I tried them tonight and I was VERY shocked. These had a really nice flavour to them, and nice and soft and guess what? I finished them all…nice ones guys!!!

Everything on this plate was really nice, full of flavour and worked well on its own and together,

Pumpkin Pie £6.50 (Tonight Free)

As I said at the start of this review, I have had Thanksgiving dinner in the past but not for many years. I have had Pumpkin Pie before, so it would be nice to compare them as the one I had in the past was homemade.

This tasted just like I remembered, and I enjoyed it very much.

I have a very sweet tooth so its not a sweet I would order a lot if I saw it on a menu, but it was Thanksgiving and it was the perfect sweet for the night.

Visit Overall :

Note : Just because this was an invite, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the day, and the food.

Firstly thank you to Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow for my invite, and thanks to the staff.

Fancy celebrating Thanksgiving? or giving it a try then check all Hard Rock Cafe’s this Thursday 28th 12pm-10pm for a great Thanksgiving meal.

Tribeca (Glasgow) : Review

Tribeca
102 Dumbarton Road
Glasgow G11 6NX

V: 28th July 2019. T: 0141 334 7457. W: www.tribecadiner.com


Today I was out walking and felt like a burger, and Tribeca was only 1min walk away from when my stomach started to say “feed me” so in I went.

The Food…

Extra Toppings :

  • CANDIED BACON 1.50
  • CHORIZO 95p
  • SMOKED JACK CHEESE 95p
  • CHIPOTLE MAYO 50p

So as you can see from above I added more toppings to my burger, and got some special fries.

The burger was really nice, and I loved the flavours of everything I added. If you even take away all the toppings a good burger for £5 thats great value.

The chips were very nice, and I liked the balsamic and mayo combo….it could have done with just a little more of both over it but thats a personal opinion.

Overall

I am glad I came back and tried something different, and I really enjoyed my burger. I saw that they were changing their menu soon (possibly changed at time of posting this) so I will go back again at some point and see what its like.
