Hard Rock Cafe Thanksgiving Dinner (Glasgow) : Review

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

0141 353 8790

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,

  • Presentation : 4
  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : n/a tonight
  • Overall : 5

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.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : n/a tonight

Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee Masterclasses Invite (Glasgow) : Review

V: 23rd October 2019

Jägermeister’s Cold Brew Coffee Available Now
Instagram/Facebook @JagermeisterUK | Twitter: @JagerUK

A perfect fusion of Jägermeister, Cold Brew Coffee and Cacao

I was invited to visit the Tiki Bar in Glasgow, for the Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee event which I was very excited to attend. One I love wee events and two I love coffee so this sounded interesting.

The inventive liqueur sees the classic Jägermeister recipe of 56 herbs and spices expertly fused with cold-brewed Arabica coffee and just a hint of cacao to create a new Jägermeister shot experience, with a barista touch.

I have never been to the Tiki Bar, but its always been on my list, so tonight was going to be a great night for many new things.

On entering I could see how funky this place was, plus lots of Jägermeister goodies and promo materiel this looked like it was going to be a fun event.

I was welcomed and offered a little taster, and this was an interesting taster. I could have a shot of Cold Brew, or a small ice cream cone with the shot….it was a hard decision so I went for both.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM I loved this, it tasted like Jägermeister but MUCH BETTER….well for me as I have a sweet tooth and like coffee.

This for me was a perfect shot, it was amazing and I couldn’t wait to try more tonight.

I spotted a little list of cocktails that were being made tonight, that included Jägermeister’s new Cold Brew drink and they all sounded good…..which means I had to try them all.

I got talking to someone that worked at Jägermeister, he welcomed me and recommended that tonight I had to try the Espresso Martini.

This was a great recommendation as one of my favourite cocktails is an Espresso Martini…..now it was time to taste how it was with Cold Brew.

Jägermeister’s Cold Brew Coffee, Salted Caramel, Espresso, Vanilla

Ohhh now this was different but in a good way, it tasted like a normal Espresso Martini but sweeter and the salted caramel just rounded it off.

I don’t know if these cocktails were just for tonight, or will continue to be served but tonight the first for us was free but had a normal price of £6 which is a good price.

I loved this and could easily have more, but tonight there were others to try…

There were several cocktails available tonight but the Espresso Martini and the following two were my favourites.

Bounty Hunter
(Coconut-Washed Jägermeister’s Manifest, Honey and Chocolate Bitters)

This was very nice and had a good strong Bounty flavour, with a nice hint of the Jägermeister flavour coming through. This is another one I would recommend.

Gecko Club
(Jägermeister’s Cold Brew Coffee, Orgeat, Lime, Aromatic Bitters)

OH now this was different, the first flavour was the Cold Brew then it finished on a subtle Lime flavour which made it refreshing. Another one for you to try when visiting here or making it at home.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Jägermeister for the invite tonight, and for the amazing night I enjoyed it from start to finish.

For me this was a really nice drink, and one I have already got myself a bottle at home to enjoy 🙂

I will either be going back to try more Cold Brew cocktails, or buying Cold Brew to make the Espresso Martini at home 🙂

Jägermeister’s Cold Brew will be available NOW in Morrisons and selected off-licenses NOW!!! and that it would work as a great Christmas gift.

I highly recommend this if you have a sweet tooth and like coffee.

Thanks Tiki Bar & Jägermeister 🙂

Kris Visits : Nomad Sky Bar (Bucharest, Romania) VLOG

While I was in Bucharest this year, I wanted to visit a sky bar but I didn’t know what one. While we were walking about we came across this place.

This was a really nice one and I would visit again.
