FoodHUB App Aroma Chinese Takeaway (Cambuslang, Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at FoodHub asked if I would like another nice wee takeaway and to do a review.

If you dont know this is the second time I have worked with Foodhub and you can read my first review HERE

This time I was in Cambuslang rather than the West End of Glasgow, so I got to try one from this area.

Looking Around The App

The App and takeaway

I got a discount code from FoodHub, and now it was time to decide where and what to order….this was a hard decision.

I ended ordering from a Chinese restaurant called Aroma Hut Chinese Takeaway, I have never ordered from here but the menu looked good.

Just like the last time using the app was mega simple, it was really easy to use and navigate.

The food

Chicken Maryland

This was ordered as my parents love this, I tried a little of each item and everything was very nice and very fresh.

My parents said it was one of the best they had tasted, and it was very fresh.

Crispy Shredded Chicken with Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce⠀

This one was for me, this is a big fav of mine so I thought lets see how here does it and compare.

Firstly the egg fried rice was cooked perfect and had a great taste.

The Crispy Shredded chicken was REALLY GOOD!!!! and now in my top 2 for takeaways! the flavour was amazing, and it was so good I have ordered this again since this first order.

This is one of my dads favs, so I got to try a little.

Again the egg fried rice was really good, so now on to the black bean part

Wow this had a really good flavour, and combined with the prawn and rice it was really nice…This is a dish I would order when I felt like a change.

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

Just like the previous time I used FoodHub the whole process was easy, simple and no learning curve needed. The other part was I liked is that 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!

The food was really good, and now is one of two of my top local takeaways….well when I come to Cambuslang.

Mister Marinade Seasonings : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Mister Marinade sent me a message to see if I would like to try some of their seasonings, since I have been making more food at home I said yeah as they sounded great.

The Packets

Wow big packets!

How good do they sound? “Chinese meat glaze marinade” and “Chinese Style mild salt and pepper seasoning”

I have been doing a lot of Indian style cooking recently, and wanted to try some Chinese style cooking to see if I could do it…..so these came at the perfect time.

Chinese Style mild salt and pepper seasoning

I started with this one as I have had a few salt and pepper seasonings before, mostly on my chips and they tasted amazing.

Popped them on my oven dish, and sprinkled the seasoning on one side….flipped them and seasoned the other side.

I set the oven and waited….

Probably about half way I started to smell them cooking, and mmm I was really getting hungry the flat was smelling amazing.

It was tasting time as they were ready.

As you see I also prepared some rice.

WOW!!!!! the flavour was amazing, it had the perfect amount of salt and pepper and extremely extremely moreish!!!

We even made more two days later!! the seasoning was that good!!

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 products.

WOW is basically all I can say, these packets are super easy to use and can be used on most items to add amazing flavour.

For me this chicken was so so so good, and I tried it on scampi and some fries and mmmm super addictive.

If your like me just really starting in the kitchen, or love being in the kitchen I highly recommend you try these products!!! I promise you, you wont be disappointed.

Tiki Bar & Kitsch Inn (Glasgow) : Review

Tiki Bar & Kitsch Inn
214 Bath Street
Glasgow
G2 4HW

0141 332 1341
www.tikibarglasgow.com

V: 23rd October 2019


Well this is a first for me, as I have had many plans over the past few years to come here and eat or drink…or even both but something has always made me change my plans.

Tonight I was attending a Jagermeister Cold Brew event so I thought I would visit early and finally see the Tiki Bar and try the food.

The Food

Since I had an event to attend I didn’t want to be late, so I decided just to go for small dishes for quickness….but next visit I will try some other dishes.

Dinner

Honey Pork Ribs £6.50

pork ribs in sticky honey sauce (Ce) (GF, DF, NF)

This smelled good and looked nice, and I have not had ribs for ages so I was really looking forward to this.

This was messy, full of flavour and just mega mmm the meat was tender and the sauce was really good.

Its a bit costly for what you get compared to other restaurants.

Salt & Pepper Squid £6.50

lightly battered squid tossed in mixed spices with Thai sweet & sour dressing, served with green Mayo

I love this dish so I had to try it here.

I picked up my squid and it was soft! huh what ever sauce they drizzled over the top has made it soft…shouldn’t this be crispy?

It was nice but the flavour was lacking and also I expected them to be crispy or even just a little.

Again a little costly for the portion size.

Sweet :

Deep Fried Mars Bar £3.00

I saw this and had to try how here do it.

Ok so this was actually really good, I think I still prefer the one from a chip shop but it was nice here and I would have this again here.

Visit Overall :

What a disappointment, don’t get me wrong the food was good but a little costly for the portion sizes as I have had these dishes at other restaurants for cheaper and was just as good or better.

Sorry guys, I will try something else next time I visit.
