I like visiting Patisserie Valerie every now and then, more so for the afternoon tea but today I decided to try something else.

There are two locations in Glasgow, I don’t really have a preference but if I had to choose I think this one is a little nicer than the other.

The Food…

Starter

Spaghetti Carbonara  £8.75

On arrival it looked a little of a disappointment, my next thought was why is there that light coloured cheese on it like that?

Another thing I noticed was the pasta was cut, rather than the big long strands…which am sure for some people is fine but for me this was strange. I am used to the normal way where I have to twist, and then eat…..

Flavour wise….not that great. Firstly it used cream and not the normal way, secondly the cheese through this was hmmm

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3
Presentation : 2.5
Value for Money : 2.5

Overall

Overall very disappointed, this was not good and I definitely won’t be ordering this again.

Sorry guys

Tonight I was filming the next episode of my Blogger Meets Blogger Youtube interview series, and have mentioned what I thought of the food in the video but I thought let’s do a little blog review too.

View The Interview here: https://youtu.be/Lri722lJTxY

Eusebi Deli is my favourite Italian in the West End, and its always a must visit when I  need my Italian fix.

Tonight Eusebi Deli spoiled us…and I can’t thank them enough for tonight!!!!!

The owner was lovely enough to come and talk to everyone about the menu, the style of food and loads more.

Everyone ordered what they wanted, and we started filming.

The owner wanted us to try a few dishes, but I didn’t expect the amount that came out!!! wow, these were so so so good and tasty.

The Food…

Starters

So all of the following was brought to the table for us to sample, and wow these dishes looked amazing!!!….but did they taste as good as they looked?….continue reading to find out.

Cured Mackerel, Roast Red Peppers, Sultanas & Pinenuts

IMG_0180.jpg

We each all had some of this, and everyone loved it. The flavours were perfect, and it was just YUM!!!!!!

Scallop, Kumquat & Black Olives

IMG_0181.jpg

When it comes to these I have found they can either be cooked perfectly, or they are very rubbery and puts you off eating them.

These were cooked perfectly!!! and melted in my mouth mmmm my mouth is watering just typing this…

Vitello Tonnato Crudo
Tartare of Peelham Farm veal with tuna aioli sauce

IMG_0182.jpg

This was basically uncooked Veal…..instantly this sounded interesting and scary to me. I have always had graved into my brain, that uncooked meat is bad…..but I do know it can be classed as a speciality.

I took some on my plate and tried it…

This was interesting, the texture flavour was interesting for me….it was very nice but I am not sure I would try it again as the little guy in my brain was saying “its uncooked” but it was good to try something different.

Roman Foccacia Pinsa

IMG_0185.jpg

I think this is what this was called, if not please correct me.

OH MY GOD!!! this was soooooooo good!!!! I could have had at least 6 of these!!!

This is something I will be ordering every time I visit Eusebi.

Main Course

Crab Risotto £16
Cooked in a light shellfish stock, stracciatella & sea vegetables.

IMG_0186.jpg

I am a big risotto fan, so I had to try this.

As soon as this arrived my mouth instantly started to water, and visually this looked very very good.

Every mouthful was amazing, the flavours were perfect. Normally the fish is either overpowering or hardly there.

This was really good, and I can’t wait to have it again.

Overall

Tonight’s visit was a really nice one, and I enjoyed it from start to finish. Everyone was very relaxed and made to feel very welcome.

Eusebi was amazing to all of us tonight, and allowed us to film there plus treated us to the meal which was very unexpected. So from all of us again, a massive thanks to everyone at Eusebi.

Please do check Eusebi Deli out, the food is amazing and you will have an amazing time.

Love from all of us.

Tribeca Cafe Bar (Glasgow, West End) : Review

102 Dumbarton Road
Glasgow G11 6NX

My last visit to Tribeca would probably be around 5 years ago, so I thought its time to return and try the food again.

Just like the last time (from what I remember) we were greeted and shown to a table.

The Food…

Burger

Harlem £10.75
Steak patty topped with chorizo, manchego cheese, prosciutto ham, red pepper aioli served with chimichurri

On arrival, this looked nice and smelled nice so time to taste.

The chips were nice, needed some salt but nice.

The burger was good, not as nice as the description made out as I couldn’t really get too much chorizo taste with this or cheese…

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4
Value for Money : 4

Overall

Would I have it again….yeah it was nice.

Today’s visit was good, the service and atmosphere was really nice and the staff very pleasant.

For me I think I will try something else next time, maybe the waffles and bacon mmmm
