German Doner Kebab (Byres Road West End, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

When I stayed in the West End the location for German Doner Kebab was an Indian Restaurant, which I only ever visited once so I was glad to hear that something new was opening in its place.

The West End is a great area and I am happy GDK opened here, as its something different for the area.

The guys asked me to come and take a visit and try some of their food, I have tried their food before the Boss Box which was very very tasty so I was looking forward to tonights visit.

The Food

I knew I wanted to try a few things, and one item was something I wanted to try for a long time.

Doner KRUNCH Burger
Your choice of doner meats, our original burger sauce and Cool Original Doritos chips smothered in a cheese sauce. All served in a brioche bun.

I couldn’t wait to try this, as it looked and sounded VERY good.

This looked good on arrival, and after all needed photos I took a BIG bite!

All the flavours hit at once, with a lovely texture followed by that Doritos crunch.

This was REALLY good!!! I enjoyed every mouth full

My side was the Cheesy Fries

I tried a chip that didn’t have the cheese, and this was very nice….if I say so nicer than some other fast foods chips…but I wont name names. With the cheese was very nice, and very tasty.

Doner Spring Rolls (mix, chicken, beef)
Your choice of doner meats with jalapeños, wrapped in a light crispy pastry.

Spring Rolls in general never look visually good, as its all about the texture and the fillings.

I opted for the mixed meats, as I wanted to see how that would taste.

I took a bite and my mouth exploded with an amazing flavour!!! these were so so so good! I was with my best friend tonight and he agreed that these were really good….I think he was hoping we got ordered one of these each rather than sharing one order….I wish I had now 🙂

It does come with dips, but the flavour of this didn’t need any dips!

Doner Nachos (chicken, beef, mix)
Cool Original Doritos chips with your choice of doner meats, salsa, melted cheese sauce and jalapeños with a dusting of garlic and paprika seasoning.

This was a random last min order, as I wanted to try one more dish just to get an overall feeling to what GDK do.

Nachos are always a nice wee side, or treat when your hungry and you cant really go wrong. The meats for the nacho was again mixed, just to try something different.

On arrival this looked very nice and very appealing to the eyes.

Time to dig in…

This was very messy but very tasty…..for me very similar to the Crunch burger but more messy.

This was finished very fast and we both enjoyed every bite, and the good part was they also gave you finger clothes which were very much needed!! 🙂

Overall :

Firstly a BIG thanks to German Doner Kebab for inviting me tonight.

Tonight’s food was very nice from start to finish, the ones that stood out for me were the Crunch burger and the Spring Rolls.

Bistecca (East Kilbride, Glasgow) Takeaway 2021 : Review

The Delivery

I have wanted to try here for ages, but never go around to it and tonight I finally did.

I didn’t know what to order so I just selected two random dishes, and hit order.

Starters

Pollo dorato £5.95

I like a good chicken finger and if its got a nice dip, so when I opened the box these looked good and smelled good.

I took a nice bit with and without the dip.

Without these were very nice, and the chicken was very tender. The coating was light and didn’t take away from the chicken flavour. With the dip mmm yeah they needed a dip just to boost the already existing flavour.

I could easily have these again.

Buffalo Mac n Bacon Pizza £11.00

Yes you read that right, and all my Italian friends and followers will be shouting WHY!!!!!!! but I wanted something random and to see how it tasted.

Visually this looked interesting and it smelled nice, but would it taste nice? well it was time to give it a try.

I took a nice big bite…

Firstly the base was very thick but I think thats because the mac and cheese would make a thin base very soft….the mac and cheese tasted ok and the bacon helped with the overall flavour.

This was very filling, I ate about 3/4 of it and had to leave the rest as I was MEGA full.

Would I order it again? probably not but it was interesting and tasted ok…I think I will stick with the Italian classic pizzas.

Overall :

I am glad I tried here finally, and I will order from them again but maybe something less random.

Do check them out on their Instagram or on JustEat for your next takeaway.

Asian Fusion Takeaway via FoodHub (Cambuslang, Glasgow): Review

The Delivery

I was recently sent a voucher from FoodHub along with their summer promo, so it was time to use my voucher and order my dinner tonight.

Sesame Prawn Toast

I have not had prawn toast for ages, as I have been good and tried to only order mains recently.

Tonight I decided to be a pig and order anything I wanted.

This just like the previous times i’ve ordered from Asian Fusion is always very nice, the flavour is good and the texture.

Not one slice was left 🙂

Salt & Pepper Chicken Wings

Another starter I have not had in ages is chicken wings, and I love a good wing.

I opted for salt and pepper as my main was spicy, so thought I would balance it out and start this way.

These were perfectly cooked, the meat slide of the bone and had a lovely flavour.

Another starter where there was nothing left 🙂

Crispy Spring Rolls (x3)

Wow these were huge!!!

These were nice, but I think something smaller would have been better.

Flavour wise just ok, they needed a nice soya dip to give them a better flavour…but thats a personal thing.

Chicken Crispy Shredded Sweet Chilli

This is my normal dish from a Chinese takeaway, and its been ages since I tried it from Asian Fusion so I thought lets see if its still as good.

This looked good, and smelled really good and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

The chicken was tender, it had a good kick to it, and the flavours as a whole were amazing.

I highly recommend either the chilli or the normal one.

Overall :

Tonights takeaway was very nice, and just as tasty as I remember. I cant fault any dish tonight, as it was all fresh, tasty and moreish.

As I said I ordered via the app FoodHub so please do check out my previous reviews and check it out.
