Bo’ness Spice Restaurant (Bo’ness, Scotland) 2021 : Review

V: 4th July 2021

About Bo’ness Spice

We are dedicated to serving the local community, that is why our menu features popular classics. The new dishes are sure to tantalise the taste buds with focus on the authentic flavours which vary with the different regions of India’s vast territory.

The Visit

The guys at Bo’ness Spice kindly invited me to come and check them out, and try some of their food. So we arranged a day and time, and I set my satnav and off I went.

At the time of visiting they have only been opened for 5 weeks, but the whole time I was in eating the phone was going like crazy, and the delivery and collections were booming…so I couldn’t wait to try the food if this is how popular it was already.

Starter

SABZI PAKORA (normally £3.95)
(5 pieces) Deep fried balls of gram flour, onions, mixed vegetables &
a variety of spices, served with special sauce.

I wanted to try a big dish as my main, so I thought I would play safe and go for nice pakora to start with.

Ohhh the presentation was very nice, and it smelled really good…I couldn’t wait to dig in.

I took a bite of one without the sauce, to see how it was and wow!!!! these are really good.

These are nice and light, perfect texture and packed with flavour.

So so so good!!!!

SHAHI CHASNI (normally £8.75) + Pilau Rice (normally £2.95)
Chicken kebabs cooked in a delicate sweet & sour sauce with a touch
of fresh herbs & spices.

I broke my little rule, where I always try a restaurants Korma and use to see how good they do their dishes….I decided tonight to select something at random.

I opted for this dish with pilau rice.

On arrival this looked very bright, but had a really great smell and I couldn’t wait to dig in as I was very hungry.

The chicken was nice and tender and the sauce was soo nice, every bite packed a great amount of flavour and I loved it.

The dish was very filling, but I enjoyed it and would order it again on my next visit.

PESHWARI NAAN (normally £3.15)

I love a good Peshwari naan, as I have a sweet tooth so its perfect for me the nice naan flavour with a sweetness going through it.

They looked really good, and now was the taste test.

I was happy to see that they didn’t have a redish colouring inside, as for me that looks artificial….still not sure why or what it is but anyway back to this one…

This was very nice, and my friend also agreed…maybe if I was being fussy and it could be down to my sweet tooth…maybe a little more coconut flavour was needed but as I said that’s a personal thing and my friend thought they were perfect for him.

Overall :

Firstly a big thanks to Bo’ness Spice for the invite and the food tonight.

I can honestly say that everything tonight, from service to the food was perfect. The food was packed with flavour and cooked perfectly.

Again I was phappy to see how busy they were tonight, as the phone and collections/deliveries was crazy which is great for such a new restaurant.

I highly recommend you check here out, and it will be going on my Top Spots page.

Swadish Big Daddy Sunday Grill (Merchant City, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

V: 13th June 20201


Swadish invited me to come along to try a new dish that is being added to the menu, but this one is only availbe on Sundays and for a group of 4 or more people.

Luckily they told me more people were invited or I would have probably exploded trying to eat this all by myself.

On entering I was greeted by Ajay and we had a good catch-up, and then we were presented with a Mango Lassi⁠

Mango Lassi £5.50⁠

They also do a passion fruit Lassi if that tickles your taste buds more.⁠

Mango Lassi is a fav of mine, and this tasted really good. It wasn’t too sweet, and had great flavour.⁠

I will be getting this again on my return.⁠

They say you eat with your eye before your belly, this is very true for this. It was carried out to the table, you could hear some sizzling, smell it all before I saw it.

It was then placed on the table, and it took up the whole table and looked soooo good!!! Everyone around me also was like wow!!!!

I started with the naan. and it was fluffy and had a great taste. The garlic wasn’t overpowering, it was just there and was perfect.

Dipping this in the sauces was needed, and again mmmm so so so good!

Next was time to dig in and try all the chicken etc

I feel I am repeating myself, but its 100% the truth! The meat on everything was cooked to perfection, it slid right off the bone and packed with amazing flavours.

I tried a bite from everything, and like everyone else we really enjoyed every mouthful.

Overall

Firsly a BIG thanks to the guys at Swadish for the invite and the amazing food!
