Steak and Cherry Restaurant Takeaway via FoodHub (Glasgow) : Review

Partially Gifted


Recently the guys over at FoodHub.co.uk gave me £20 to spend on their app, and to take a journey with it from downloading to ordering and see what I thought.

The reason it says Partially gifted is I spent more than £20 that night, so I paid for the difference.

The Restaurant

Steak and Cherry have been on my list to visit for a while (my list keeps growing), and when I spotted it on FoodHub I thought yeah lets order tonights takeaway from them.

The Food

Now this was the hard part as I saw so many dishes I would love to order, but I wanted to be good and just get two mains and two sides.

Next time I order or visit I will try the other dishes that jumped out at me.

Steak and cherry legendary burger

STEAK AND CHERRY LEGENDARY BURGER £12.95
This also comes with a side of home made chips

When I ordered this I didnt spot the small text that said it came with homemade chips, I guess I was too hungry and just was focusing more on what I wanted to order.

This was a big burger, and looked and smelled good….so now it was time to dig in.

This was a big bite, the flavours of the beef, bacon, cheese and onion rings was nice and worked well.

  • Flavour : 4
  • Value For Money : 4
  • Overall : 4

Side :

Sweet Potato Fries £4.75

Sweet Potato Fries are starting to become my new norm for fries when I am out, so I had to order then from here to see how they did them.

These were nice and crispy, and had a really good flavour.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Steak and Cherry Bang Bang Chicken Burger

STEAK AND CHERRY BANG BANG CHICKEN BURGER £11.95

My Fiancee ordered this but I had to have a bite or two, so I could do a little review of this to plus just in case it could be one I would order next time.

For me this had much more flavour than my burger, plus is also had a nice little kick to it…I could have had more bites but I couldn’t do that as I did order the burger for me.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

more Sides

CURLY FRIES £4.25

These were the sides for the chicken burger (again we both failed to notice they came with house fries), and had a really good taste and just the right amount of crispness to them.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Mocktail

Cherry Mocktail £3.95

I wanted to get a little extra, but I didn’t see any desserts so I opted for a sweet mocktail.

This was really nice and refreshing and the cherry flavour was spot on.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Takeaway Overall :

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

Tonights takeaway from placing the order on Foodhub, to it arriving and was flawless.

The food we got was very nice and mega filling, for me tonights favs were the chicken burger and both sides of fries. The burger was nice, but I think the flavour of the chicken burger hit the spot for me instead.

FoodHub App & Order : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Foodhub.co.uk sent me £20 to have a wee treat and check out their app.

I have posted my journey from opening the app to the food arriving on my Instagram, if you missed follow me for any future stories etc I might do.

About THem

What I learned was that when you place an order on the other food delivery apps, they actually take a % of commission. This means the restaurant looses out on its profit, which I never knew this till I looked into FoodHub.

Foodhub is an online food website and app launched in 2017. There are more than 12,000 takeaways currently featured online at foodhub.co.uk and through the apps available for iOS and Android.

Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers, as Foodhub is on average 15% cheaper than the rest!

This is a really good way to work!

The App

I have an iPhone so I downloaded the app via the appstore, but you can get the app from the Android store to or just visit their website.

As you can see from the above images, its layout and looks is similar to the other delivery apps so its mega easy to navigate and find what your looking for since you have probably been used to the other apps.

The Restaurant Choice

Just like the other apps you may have used, this is exactly the same it depends on your area and the times they open for delivery. It also depends if your local restaurants have joined the FoodHub experience.

FoodHub currently have more than 12,000 takeaways on its app so I am sure you will find something to tickle your tastebuds.

For me I wanted to try a restaurant thats been on my hit list for a while, and I choose Steak & Cherry.

As you can see the layout is very similar to the other apps, and I just hit “ADD” whenever I spotted something that tickled my tastebuds.

As you can see from the above screen, I paid and this is what I was shown. The top right corner was a 30min countdown, I took that as 30mins till its cooked but I was very wrong. 30mins later my door went and the food was handed to me, WOW very fast and great service.

The Food :

I ordered from a local Glasgow based restaurant Steak and Cherry, which is a restaurant that was on my ever growing “to visit” list.

I ordered one chicken burger and one beef burger.

The service, and food was really good and we enjoyed it very much.

We got a side of Sweet Potato Fries, and Curly Fries….but something I failed to spot was the burgers actually came with normal fries so we had LOADS of fries 🙂

I will be doing a full review of Steak and Cherry soon, so keep a look out for that.

Service Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the service from FoodHub, and the food from the restaurant.

From downloading the app to placing the order, it was a very smooth process. There was zero learning curve, as it had a similar layout to the other food apps so in a few seconds I knew what to do.

As I said at the start of this post, Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers which I think is a great platform…as its a win win situation.

I have zero hesitation to recommending this app, its easy to use and a win win situation for restaurants and you.

Please check them out either via the website or your app store.

Doughnut Burger (Luther Burger) : Recipe

Unfortunately at the time of making this the shops near me didn’t have any normal glazed donuts so I just opted for this one instead.

A Luther Burger, or doughnut burger (among several naming variations), is a hamburger or cheeseburger with one or more glazed doughnuts in place of the bun.

YIELD 2 burgers

INGREDIENTS

For The Burger

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Ground Beef (80% lean)
  • 1 Egg

Topping

  • 6 slices quality smokey bacon
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 2 glazed donuts

Extras for Candied Bacon

  • Maple syrup
  • Brown sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

Burger

  1. In a bowl add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and pepper in a large bowl and gently mix for 10 seconds
  2. Now add the mince and mix for 60 seconds
  3. Break an egg in to the bowl as this is your binding issue and mix well
  4. Let the mince sit for around 5 minutes
  5. Form your hamburger patties.
  6. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Candied Bacon

Its up to you if you want to make sweet bacon, normal bacon tastes just as good with this

  1. Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Return bacon to the skillet, brush with the glaze, and turn. Cook glazed side down for 2 minutes over low heat. Glaze, turn, and cook for an additional 2 minutes over low heat.
  4. Repeat until all of the glaze is used and serve immediately.

The Donuts

  1. Cut the donuts in half and lightly butter the cut sides
  2. Place the cut sides down on a very warm frying pan and keep until slightly crispy 

End Product

I added some cheddar at the bottom just to be different 🙂
  1. Place burger patties on glazed donuts, as the buns.
  2. Top each burger with bacon and two slices of cheese

Enjoy
