111 by Modou (West End, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I have heard many people talk about 111 and its always been positive, so I added it to my ever-growing list of places I want to visit.

Tonight’s visit I was meeting friends for a good catch-up and they suggested we go here, I was really looking forward to it…plus they said its a 10 course tasting menu.

The number of courses was like wow but I knew everything would be a good size and the menu looked mega tasty!

The 10 Courses

Don’t panic! I wont be doing a full 10 course post, more an overview and my favourite courses.

I have never really done a tasting menu, I have always avoided them as I thought I would probably need to have something to eat after it….I was very wrong!

We arrived at 7pm and didn’t leave till just after 11pm, so it takes roughly 3 hours to have your full taster plus any tea’s coffee’s after it.

The décor inside is lovely and the atmosphere was very good, it was a packed night! and everyone looked like they were loving what they were having.

From start to finish everything was packed with flavour! visually looked amazing and every course was very moreish!

I was very impressed with everything tonight and I can see why many of the people I follow on Instagram have been raving about it here.

My favourite courses were :

  • Course 2- Polenta
  • Course 4 – Mackerel
  • Course 6 – Pork Cheek
  • Course 10 – Vanilla Crème Brulee

I would love to have some of these courses as a full dish, but then again I really enjoyed all the dishes tonight and the fun of trying many items.

I am 100% going to try another tasting menu soon! and I will be adding here to my top spots page!.

Hooligan Wine Bar (Glasgow) 2021 : Review


Hooligan opened on Friday September 3rd, and for their menu dishes they use the best seasonal Scottish produce.

Located above The Drake on Lyndoch Street in the city’s Park Circus area, so when you go inside the Drake head on up the stairs and there you will find Hoolgan.

In addition to amazing dishes they also stock a wide selection of wines.

Inside :

Sitting inside its got a very warm and cosy vibe, you instantly feel relaxed and ready to sip a nice wine and have a lovely meal.

The Food

Tonight’s menu looked very nice, and I couldn’t wait to see and taste each dish. Unfortunately due to my nut allergy I couldn’t take the dessert but they made a lovely alternate for me.

Part of the starter was the smoked almonds, which my friend enjoyed very much.

Sourdough & focaccia, roast garlic & thyme butter, evoo

Tonight there was going to be many lovely small plates, so I was really looking forward to the food.

This was the first to arrive at the table, and I was very happy as Focaccia is a big fav of mine.

The focaccia on its own was very nice, and had that lovely flavour. The butter was really good, and just added that extra level of flavour to the focaccia.

This was a lovely first plate and one that I could have easily had more of.

Selection of charcuterie, pickled walnuts, guindilla pepper, with a selection of IJ Mellis cheeses, burnt onion chutney, crackers

I do love a nice cheese board every now and then and this when it arrived looked really nice, plus it had some meats to try to.

Every item on this board was packed with flavour, and all worked on their own or together.

The cheeses were so nice, and lovely on the crackers.

This is another dish I could easily see myself having again with a lovely glass of wine.

Kombu cured monkfish, grapes, mint, dashi

I have never tried monkfish, so I didn’t know what to expect from this dish.

When it arrived this looked very interesting, and it was time to taste it.

WOW! this was a lovely taste not mega fishy, as the Kombu really was the main flavour coming over.

These were so so easy to eat, and just like the previous dishes I could easily have had lots more of this.

Sweetcorn fritter, cumin, garlic, red pepper

When I saw “Sweetcorn fritters” I thought hmm ok so these will just be so so…I couldn’t have been more wrong!

These are addictive!

If nothing else on the menu catches your eye, you have to visit for this!! going by what I heard on the night I visited these were a general fav with everyone else that turned up.

Aubergine, fermented tomato, feta, sumac yoghurt, crispy flatbread

Aubergine is not something I tend to like, its something I have to be in the mood for but I am always up for trying new dishes.

This was another dish I was very surprised at, the flavours all worked very well together and the taste was really nice.

I know I sound like I am repeating myself but this is something I would have again….the flavours of dishes from Hooligans is really top class!!

King Oyster mushroom, salted baked celeriac, mushroom jus

I have a love hate relationship with mushrooms, sometimes they taste just ok sometimes not great so when this arrived I was 50/50 about trying it.

I did try it and I am glad I did, the Oyster mushroom tasted soo nice like a BBQ flavour for me.

I never thought I would say this about mushrooms but this was the nicest I have ever tasted.

Bavette, hash brown, beanaise, charred shallot

I am not a big steak person, but I was willing to try this one. Lucky my friend loved steak so he was happy to finish it for the both of us.

The steak was nice, but as I said am not a fan. The hash brown was AMAZING!!! this is the best hash brown I have ever tasted and could have had loads more of them.

and to drink – You and I Kombucha (Lime Sea Salt)

I was the designated driver tonight, so I asked for whatever soft drink they had which was this.

I have never heard of this or knew what it tasted like but said ok.

This was very refreshing and very pleasant, I even had two of these as I enjoyed them that much.

Promo : Gifted/Invited

The review posted was not influenced in any way just because it was gifted, all comments and thoughts in this blog post are my 100% honest opinion.

Steak and Cherry Restaurant Takeaway via FoodHub (Glasgow) : Review

Partially Gifted

Recently the guys over at FoodHub.co.uk gave me £20 to spend on their app, and to take a journey with it from downloading to ordering and see what I thought.

The reason it says Partially gifted is I spent more than £20 that night, so I paid for the difference.

The Restaurant

Steak and Cherry have been on my list to visit for a while (my list keeps growing), and when I spotted it on FoodHub I thought yeah lets order tonights takeaway from them.

The Food

Now this was the hard part as I saw so many dishes I would love to order, but I wanted to be good and just get two mains and two sides.

Next time I order or visit I will try the other dishes that jumped out at me.

Steak and cherry legendary burger

This also comes with a side of home made chips

When I ordered this I didnt spot the small text that said it came with homemade chips, I guess I was too hungry and just was focusing more on what I wanted to order.

This was a big burger, and looked and smelled good….so now it was time to dig in.

This was a big bite, the flavours of the beef, bacon, cheese and onion rings was nice and worked well.

  • Flavour : 4
  • Value For Money : 4
  • Overall : 4

Side :

Sweet Potato Fries £4.75

Sweet Potato Fries are starting to become my new norm for fries when I am out, so I had to order then from here to see how they did them.

These were nice and crispy, and had a really good flavour.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Steak and Cherry Bang Bang Chicken Burger


My Fiancee ordered this but I had to have a bite or two, so I could do a little review of this to plus just in case it could be one I would order next time.

For me this had much more flavour than my burger, plus is also had a nice little kick to it…I could have had more bites but I couldn’t do that as I did order the burger for me.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

more Sides


These were the sides for the chicken burger (again we both failed to notice they came with house fries), and had a really good taste and just the right amount of crispness to them.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5


Cherry Mocktail £3.95

I wanted to get a little extra, but I didn’t see any desserts so I opted for a sweet mocktail.

This was really nice and refreshing and the cherry flavour was spot on.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Takeaway Overall :

Note : Just because this was partially gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the food.

Tonights takeaway from placing the order on Foodhub, to it arriving and was flawless.

The food we got was very nice and mega filling, for me tonights favs were the chicken burger and both sides of fries. The burger was nice, but I think the flavour of the chicken burger hit the spot for me instead.
