Charcoals Peri Peri Takeaway (Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Charcoals Peri Peri asked if I would like to try some of their food for tonights meal.

I was actually look at their menu a few days before they contacted me, so it was perfect timing.

I then found out that Muhammad Sultan also manages Charcoals Peri Peri, if you don’t know Muhammad Sultan he works in Glasgows Charcoals Indian restaurant, he does amazing charity work and he is a really really nice guy and I consider him a friend.

What to order?

As I said I had actually had a look at their menu a few days prior to them contacting me, and I liked what I saw but couldnt decided.

So now I sat down and had a good think and this is what I ordered.

Charcoals Chicken Wings⁣

I opened the container and wow the amazing smell hit me, and then it was photos and dig in.

The chicken was nice and tender, and the flavour was very very nice.

⁣Gourmet beef burger⁣

I have not had a burger for a while, its mostly been chicken for the past few days for me so I was looking forward to this.

This was very nice, the flavour of the whole burger was really good.

This along with the chips was very nice.

I did add some extra sauce to my burger, but thats just a personal preference.

⁣Poppin Chicken ⁣

As soon as I opened the container mmmm they looked amazing and mmmm smelled amazing to.

Now these were so so good!!! the chicken was tender and the crispy batter had a great flavour. I could easily become addicted to these.

These were my favourite from my whole meal, and as I am typing this review I want them again 🙂

⁣Classic Peri Peri chicken (whole chicken)

Now this was a big bird!

Just like the chicken wings these had the same great flavour and also again very tender and succulent chicken.

⁣⁣Chips and Cheese⁣

A classic and splits a lot of people, some like it and others say nope.

For me chips and cheese is always a winner, the chips were nice and the melted cheese over them was perfect.

⁣Aloo paratha

Just like naan Aloo Paratha’s are becoming a new fav, and I have even made a few at home (but not as good as the restaurants…yet)

This was very nice, perfectly cooked and had a nice flavour mixed with a very small kick.

So good and mega moreish!

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 food.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Charcoals Peri Peri and Muhammad Sultan for tonights meal.

I was soooo full after all this, but I enjoyed every bite from start to finish. The flavours of every dish were perfect, cooked perfect and thoroughly enjoyed every dish.

As I said my fav from tonight was those Poppin Chicken, these were super addictive I am definatly going to get these again!!!!

I have no issues recommending Charcoals Peri Peri, from ordering to delivery to the food everything was very tasty and I enjoyed it.

Kitchen Punjab Platter (Glasgow & East Kilbride) : Review

GIFTED


I was sitting having a look at different profiles on Instagram last week, and I spotted Kitchen Punjabs account and the food and cost caught my eye so I started following.

On Saturday 20th the guys sent me a message, to see if I would like to try one of their platters.

About

Fresh & Home-made Punjabi food from our kitchen to yours, cooked fresh on the day. Free Delivery in Glasgow/EK, 6-8pm and orders Wed & Sat only. Wednesday is the Vegan night.

Kitchen Punjab is fairly new about just over a month old at the time of posting this, and I got talking to them and learned that everything is home made, made with love and you can really taste this.

Heat & Eat Platter

The guys sent me the Heat and Eat Platter which consisted of :

  • Tadka Chawaal (Fried Rice)
  • Makhini Chicken Curry (butter chicken)
  • Chapli Kebab
  • Roti
  • Chicken Pakora
  • Raita
  • Salad

The normal cost for this is £20 with free Glasgow and East Kilbride delivery…..how good is that!!! and its can feed two people or one very hungry person.

You get a lovely little message with the platter, which also includes heating instructions. This part doesn’t take long, so if your very hungry dont worry you wont wait long to eat.

My Starter

So I got out all the starter items, and platted it up.

I started with chicken pakora.

The chicken pakora batter was not too crispy but not soft, just a nice amount of crunch. The chicken was nice and tender, and overall a really good flavour! I could have easily had more of these.

Next the Chapli Kebab.

I think this is the first time having this, so I was looking forward to how it tasted.

This was very nice, it was packed with a lovely flavour and I enjoyed every mouthful.

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

my Main Course :

  • Tadka Chawaal (Fried Rice)
  • Makhini Chicken Curry (butter chicken)
  • Roti

I started with the rice and it was cooked perfectly, and I think I could taste cinnamon through the rice which added such a lovely flavour.

The roti was nicely cooked, and tasted good.

The curry wow! flavour wise really good, worked amazingly with the rice mega moreish. For me it had a big kick, but that didn’t stop me finishing it.

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

An attempt at Chef Ajay Kumar (Swadish Restaurant) Tandoori Chicken Tikka Recipe

I thought since the first time went ok, let’s try another recipe from Chef Ajay’s YouTube channel.

This time round my fiancee and I decided to try the Tandoori Chicken Tikka, so we had to watch make sure we had everything (a quick trip to Tesco was needed) and then setup and get ready to watch and prepare at the same time as the video.

We watched the first part of the video and left the marinated chicken for 24 hours, as we wanted it to be nice and tender.

Since we didn’t have a Tandoor in the flat, we opted for the oven and actually left it for 40mins which for us was perfect.

tandoori chicken tikka

This was our finished attempt.

From start to finish this smelled really good, and also tasted really good.

The final result was AMAZING!! for me the chicken had the perfect flavour and was very light. I had loads this night, and didn’t feel that bloated way after it all.
