I got a wee ping from the guys at Pizza Punks inviting me to come in and enjoy a pizza, I liked it last time I was here (ages ago) and heard that its only gotten better so I accepted and set a date to go in.

Tonight guys I was getting Pizza Punked 🙂

On entering tonight it still had that very cool modern, and funky look and vibe.

I was shown to my table, and had a wee look at the menu.

The menu

I had a few options tonight, one was to build my own pizza or choose one….tough choice.

I decided to choose one from the menu and selected one from the staff favourites to see what they like.

Hopefully the staff had good taste, as the one I spotted sounded really good.

The pizza I chose tonight was the “Say Cheeseburger”

Say Cheeseburger £n/a (normally £9)
Red Sauce / Applewood Smoked Cheddar / Meatballs / Burger Relish / Pickles

This pizza sounded really good and right up my street.

On arrival this looked good, smelled good and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

YES!!!! this was so good!!! the base was nice and thin, the toppings had an amazing flavour and the whole bite was just YUM!!!

Overall

My return to Pizza Punks was a good one, and firstly I would like to thank Pizza Punks Glasgow for inviting me tonight and spoiling me with a really good pizza.

I am going to shock you, I ONLY had the pizza yes you read that right I didnt get anything else as that was a very filling pizza but so yummy!!!

One of my pet hates when I go out for a meal is SUPER LOUD music where I cant hear the person across the table from me. Pizza Punks Glasgow had it at a very nice level, and they play some really cool tunes from Queen, ACDC to pop and disco…something for everyone.

Next visit I will try another staff fav and do a wee review.

Guys if you like good pizza, Pizza Punks Glasgow is now in my top 3 Pizza places due to the taste and atmosphere.

My review above was an invite but that didn’t influence my review in anyway, I started blogging only wanting to be 100% honest and will continue, invite, paid etc it will always be 100% honest.

If you have been following my blog, you will know I was recently (at the time of writing this) at La Laterna’s 1st Birthday event and we got to try some dishes from the new tapas menu.

Tonight I was going to see Mario Biondi at Oran Mor, so to keep the Italian theme I visited here to try the same tapas again

The Food…

(V) Arancini Arrabbiata £4.95
Crispy fried balls of rice with sweet pepper & mozzarella with chilli dip

I had these on the birthday night and loved these so I had to have them again.

Just like the other night, these were so mmmm if you have never tried these I highly recommend these!! amazing flavour and extremely moreish!

Calamari Fritti £5.95
Crispy fried calamari with garlic mayonnaise

As I always say these can either be bad or nicely done just depends on how the chef does them.

Tonight these were good, not chewy and had a very nice flavour and the added dip gave it that extra punch.

(V) Panzerotti Biano & Rosso £4.95
Crispy fried pizza parcel filled with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes

These were another fav from the birthday night, so I thought let’s try them again and see if I still like them.

Yip! they were very mmmm

Just think of a very small calzoni pizza, and this is what you have but due to its size, it’s bursting with flavour.

Overall

Not disappointed one bit tonight, and so glad to try the tapas again.

If you like Italian and only fancy small dishes, then do pop into La Laterna…but please do call ahead and book as they are always busy.

The Western Club Restaurant (Glasgow): Review

IMG_8784.jpg

Western Club Restaurant
32 Royal Exchange Square
Glasgow G1 3AB

V: 18th April 2018. T: 0141 248 2214. W: www.theclubrestaurant.co.uk


The guys over at The Western Club Restaurant kindly invited me over to dine with them, I had never been here before so I accepted and added to my calendar.

On arrival I got a little confused as to when I walked up to the door, I saw a doorbell….at first I thought maybe they don’t open till later so I waited. After maybe 5mins someone exited and spoke to me…and then shown me to the restaurant.

Basically, the top floor is a private members club, and they like to have the door secure so this cleared things up for me…..so my next visit I will just ring the bell upon arrival.

Looking Around

IMG_8785.jpg

Once I entered I went up to the first floor and entered the restaurant.

Wow, this place is very nice, as you can see from the above photo it has a very smart but relaxing look to it….and since it’s situated on the first floor if you get a window seat you can see Royal Exchange Square.

The Food…

I was given a menu to choose what I wanted, so it was decision time…..here’s what I choose.

Starter

Chicken liver parfait, Arran oaties and red onion chutney
IMG_8788.jpg

I am a big fan of this dish as my starter, and as you know if you follow my posts when I have this I am mega fussy….why? well, normally you get lots of parfait and not enough to put it on….was this the case?

To be honest it was but! yes, there’s a but I just added extra to the oaties and then ate some salad with it. I didn’t mind as it was a very good parfait and I enjoyed it very much.

Main Course

Risotto of sun blushed tomatoes & spring onion, parmesan crisps, pea shoots
IMG_8790

Risotto is my second favourite Italian dish after Carbonara, so I had to try it here and see how the chef did it.

This was very nice, and not very heavy which was good as some times you can feel very bloated and too full after it in some places.

The parmesan crisp was very nice, and very moreish and worked perfectly with the dish.

Desert

Rasberry Crème Brulee

I love Crème Brulee so I had to have this option, plus the raspberry part sounded interesting.

This was really good and so good I could have easily had more, and the little biscuits just melted in your mouth.
