My top 5 posts of 2021

What a year it’s been, I have never been busier with regards to my blog.

For 95% of the year, I was posting a new blog daily, which I have never done but it was so much fun.

Looking back at the end of year stats it’s interesting to see what were my top 5 posts, and it’s never the ones I expected.

Below are my top 5 posts in order.

1. German Donner Kebab Boss Box

I had always wanted to visit GDK but I was never in the area, and it was during lockdown I got introduced to their amazing food.

They launched the new GDK Boss Box which I was given to try and review.

I have been back a few times and enjoyed the meals there very much.

2. Sons Men’s DHT Blocking Shampoo Subscription Box

When the guys at Sons asked if I wanted to review a hair loss shampoo I was a little hesitant, firstly because I am so far not losing any hair.

I had a long think and thought maybe there are a few of my readers that are and would like to know of a product that could help them so I accepted and tried the product.

3. BURGUR Grill – (Halal) (Pollokshields, Glasgow)

I got invited to come to the newly opened at that time Burgur Grill, which was right next to my fave Indian sweet shop Barfia.

I took my dad with me tonight and we both had a lovely meal.

I will be back soon.

4. QUARTERPAST Coffee Syrups

During lockdown, I was having my morning coffee and the guys sent me some coffee syrups to try.

I love a good coffee, so adding some extra flavours was a great way to enhance my morning coffee experience.

5. Doppio Malto Italian Restaurant (Glasgow) 2021

I love finding new restaurants and trying them, and this invite was one that I will never forget.

The food tonight was really good, and I have been back since and it was just as nice as my previous experience.

La Gioiosa Prosecco Rosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Brut Millesimato 2021 : Review

The Delivery

The guys over at La Gioiosa asked if I would like to try one of their Proseccos, I said yes and started to have a wee read about them.

I noticed they are from Treviso in Italy, and I have visited Treviso many times when I used to visit Italy so it brought back many nice memories for me.

About :

La Gioiosa represents the tradition of viticulture that belongs to the Moretti Polegato family for generations and is in perfect symbiosis with the wines of the Prosecco, Montello and Colli Asolani lands.

The grape used for the production of Prosecco is Glera, a typical variety of the northeast of Italy since the Roman age, which makes up at least 85% of the grapes used. The percentage can be supplemented by native Glera Lunga, Verdiso, Perera, Chiaretta grapes and other types of white grapes determined by rules.

The Prosecco

After a few busy nights, I finally managed to pop it open and pour myself a nice glass.

I love Italian wines, grapa, Lemoncello and prosecco so I couldnt wait to try this.

I will say and I know a few will hate me for this but champagne is so over rated! you can easily find a nicer prosecco with much nicer flavours at more than half the price and enjoy drinking it much more…..sorry but it is true.

This prosecco had love fresh and fruity notes to it, and taste wise was light but interesting and a slight pear taste for me.

There was a nice amount of bubbles, not overpowering and smooth on the palate so as I said was a nice light drink, and so easy to drink.

The finish didnt last long but overall it was a delightful experience, and I enjoyed every glass I had.

I still have half the bottle so I look forward to another night pouring myself a wee glass or two. 

Overall :

Firstly a big thanks to La Gioiosa for gifting me this lovely bottle of prosecco.

Sipping on this at night was a great experience, its one of the nicest proseccos I have had in a long time.

If you like prosecco I highly recommend you check these guys out.

Chaiiwala (Glasgow Springfield Quay) 2021 : Review

The Visit

As you may have seen I was recently invited to Chaiiwala Glasgow to come and try some of their food, and I had a very good experience.

I always like to visit again t see if this new visit is up to the same standard as when I got invited…was it? read on.

The Food

At my previous visit I had spotted a few dishes I would like to try on my return visit, so that’s exactly what I ordered.

Butter chicken Roll (Roti) £2.60

I wanted to try this last time, but the Kebab Roti was recommended.

On arrival this smelled very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig in as I was very hungry.

Ohh this was good! the chicken was tender and the flavour of the butter chicken was so good.

I enjoyed every single bite.

Samosa Cone £3.60
five of our fresh best crispy vegetable samosas served with Chaiiwala chutney dip

Another dish I wanted to try last time was this, so tonight I did and I am very glad I did.

These were light, crispy and packed with flavour and very moreish.

I even dipped it in the additional chutney dip and it just added to the already lovely flavour.

Mint Chocolate Chaii (Large) £3.05

I saw this advertised on Chaiiwala’s instagram and had to try it tonight.

This was so so tasty! the mint chocolate chip flavour was perfect, not too strong or too sweet.

This was so good I had two tonight and will get this again on my next visit.

Thought this is a limited edition just for winter so check it out before its too late.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Along with my mint chocolate chip chai I ordered this as it would have been rude not to.

This is exactly as you would expect, it was sweet, minty, chocolatey goodness! and I loved every bite.
