The GUTsy Captain Kombucha Drink : Review

The Delivery

The guys over at The GUTsy Captain sent me a wee message on Instagram asking if I would like to try one of their boxes, and challenge me to try the drink for 1 week and to share my thoughts and feedback if I notice any benefits.

I am always up for a challenge and to try new products so I said yes and gave them my details.

Presentation

I have to just give a solid 5/5 for presentation instantly as this was really good!

It visually looked really good, the front flap was magnetic and the inside looked just as good as the outside.

The Drinks

The guys set me a challenge to try this for 6 days and to see if I felt any benefits from drinking this, and I accepted as I am always up for a wee challenge.

As you can see I got 2x 3 flavours they were

  • Watermelon & Mint
  • Pomegranate
  • Passion Fruit

When I saw the flavours I was a little bit hesitant as I am not watermelon fan, but I always try anything that is sent to me.

Due to this the Watermelon & mint was the first one I tried.

My plan was to have this in place of my morning drink with breakfast, and see how I feel over the course of the day.

I took a small sip expecting it to be just hmm but actually the balance of the mint with the watermelon made it very palatable for me and gave me a nice flavour.

These drinks are carbonated but not a lot, so you get a nice gentle bubble effect while drinking and it really is very pleasant.

Next was the Pomegranate and then the next day was the Passion Fruit.

All of the flavours were very nice to drink, they were not strong flavours but also not subtle just a nice easy to drink flavour.

Overall :

Firstly I would like to send a big thanks to the guys for sending me this, and challenging me to try it for a week.

As you read, I was very surprised that the flavours were really nice, and I even liked the watermelon one as the mint just balanced out the flavour very well.

Personally I don’t think one week is long enough to feel any health benefits, maybe a month would have been better but its a great substitute for say your morning coffee or energy drink.

I could easily see myself continuing with this, as I was very pleasantly surprised how nice they were and easy to drink.

Check them out and let me know what you think

Boteco Do Brasil (Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Tonight I was meeting a group of friends and drinks, and it was great to be back at Boteco.

I have visited here many times and I even filmed an Episode of my Blogger meets blogger series here so I couldn’t wait to order some food and cocktails.

The Food

I wanted to order some tapas to try a few dishes, and I opted for two. I remembered how good these were last time, so I had to order them again tonight.

Pão De Queijo (gf) (v) £4.95
Baked cheese balls originally from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Soft and irresistible!

I had these the last time I was here, and they were super addictive.

I picked one up and took a nice big bite, and it was just as good as I remember.

This is basically a soft cheese ball, kind of like a soft fluffy cheese roll but much much nicer.

These were super tasty and I could have easily had many many more of these.

Guess what I will be getting again on my next visit 🙂

Risoli de camarão £4.95
Delicious small pastry parcels filled with prawns and served with guacamole dip.

This was one I couldn’t remember the taste of, but I did remember I enjoyed this very much.

I took a bit and instantly remembered trying this the last time, and ohhhh so so tasty!

It was the perfect balance of flavour from the prawns and parcel, and then dipping it in the guacamole dip just added that extra mmmm to it.

Highly recommended!

The Picture House (Rutherglen, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

The guys at the Picture House asked if I would like to come and take a visit, and support my local.

I have only visited here maybe max twice in the past, so I was looking forward to heading back and checking it out.

The Food

I knew I would like to try a starter and a main, and if I had room a little dessert.

I placed my order and a few mins later I was told they didn’t have a few things, as they were very busy which is great to hear….but it made my decision harder.

After a few mins later I choose my alternatives.

Starter

Fish Tacos
Two charred tortillas stuffed with a freshly hand-battered fish goujon, pico de gallo, Frank’s RedHot® sauce, soured cream and shredded lettuce

Visually when this arrived on the table it looked really good, and I wasn’t expecting two….yes I know it said that in the description but I just glanced and choose it by its title.

I grabbed one and took a big bite…

The first thing that came to mind was the tomatoes needed to be under the lettuce to hold them in place, or to use half the amount as they just kept falling.

Apart from that this tasted really good!!! The flavours as a whole were good, the fish was cooked perfectly and the batter had a lovely crunch to it.

My Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Main Course

Korean Fried Chicken Burger
Freshly hand-battered mango & lime chicken thighs tossed in Korean BBQ sauce served with mango & chilli sauce

I wanted a burger tonight, but I felt like going for a chicken burger and this is what grabbed my attention.

WOW this was a big burger…

I started with the chips and these tasted great just as they are, they didnt need any salt or anything extra. I then dripped one in the dip and WOW this was such a great tasting dip.

I then took a BIG bite of the burger and again WOW the flavour was so so good!

The chicken was nice and tender, and packed with flavour and as a whole bite it was a REALLY nice burger. I then added some of the dip and it just took it to the next level, so so good!

  • Service : 5/5

Overall :

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at the Picture House for my invite.

I was very happy with tonight, I felt very relaxed from the moment I arrived to when I left.

To be honest I was very pleasantly surprised at how good the food was tonight, as last time it was just OK but tonight REALLY very tasty.

If your in the area then do check it out, and if you stay local why not support your local and visit….I promise you that you will have a very tasty meal.
