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

STEAK AND CHERRY LEGENDARY BURGER £12.95
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

STEAK AND CHERRY BANG BANG CHICKEN BURGER £11.95

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

CURLY FRIES £4.25

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

Mocktail

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.

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.

Firstly I would like to thank the Western Club for my invite.

Tonight I had a really nice and relaxing meal and will go back to try a few other dishes and some of their cocktails.

This restaurant was directly opposite where I was staying, and it was always busy so it was time to check it out.

The Food…

Main Course

Porked Knukle with cooked Cabbage 35 Lei

IMG_8941.jpg

This sounded interesting, and to be honest I didnt know what to expect. A Romanian friend told me I had to try this, if I ever saw it on a menu so today I did.

On arrival first thing to hit me was wow this is a massive portion, but I would have known that if I looked closer at the menu.

Time to try it…

I seperated the jelly part from the meat and started with that, this for me was a little to slimy for me so I stopped and focused on the meat.

The meat was very tender and very nice, but it did need a lot of salt (something I dont tend to add to my meals)

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 4
Value for Money : 5

Overall

This was a very filling meal, but I did have to keep adding salt…would I order this again….probably not but it was nice.
