Luciano’s Glasgow (Burnside) Takeaway 2022 : Review

Todays Order

I have wanted to try here since it opened, but when I looked in it was always busy.

I spotted that it was on JustEat so I decided to do a wee takeaway

The Food

Marinara £8.50
Tomato sugo, anchovies, capers, garlic, olives

I didn’t know what to order but I thought lets start with either a pizza or pasta.

I decided to go for a pizza tonight, and this one jumped out at me so I had to order it.

I opened the box and oh this looked and smelled very nice.

Now it was time to dig in and take a slice.

The first thing I got was the fish taste followed by the olives then the tomato sugo…this really worked very well.

The pizza base was nice, though I did find the crust a bit too doughy…this could be due to delivery time? but that was the only small issue.

I would order this again as I really liked all the flavours.

Patatine tartufo e parmigiano {v} {gf} £4.00
Skinny fries, Parmesan cheese, truffle oil

I wanted to try something small along side with the pizza, and chips came to my mind.

I opted for this as it sounded very nice.

I opened the box and the small was nice, and the texture of the chips was good but….where was the parmesan cheese?

I have had these at other places before, and also made them at home but I tasted no Parmesan cheese…I think they forgot to add which was ok as mistakes happen but most of the flavour was lost due to this.

As I said on their own they were nice, and tasty but the parmesan cheese would have made it much nicer.

Takeaway Overall

Overall todays order was good, I did like the pizza and the chips the only down part was the lack of cheese but as I said the chips were nice the way they arrived but that would have beer with cheese.

I will order again at some point soon and maybe even pop in for dinner so keep watching my blog.

Kathmandu Fusion (East Kilbride, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

Today I took a drive to Stranraer and on the way back needed a place to eat, my friend Chris who was with me suggested this place and I set the satnav and off we went.

The Food

I had no idea what to order tonight, so I just randomly choose my dishes.

Chicken Satay £5.50
Chicken Tikka Tossed With Onion, Peppers & Chef’s Special Sauce

So like me, your first thought is, this dish is red not a brown colour…yip but that’s how they do it here.

I learned tonight that Satay means meat served with a sauce, not like the peanut sauce we are all used to here when we see satay.

The chicken was very tender, and the sauce was very nice. The flavour of the sauce was slightly sweet, rich, peppery and very nice.

I really enjoyed this dish, even though it did confuse me at the start.

Chicken Biriyani £9.95
A Delicious Combination Of Rice With Meat / Vegetables Served With Raita & Biryani Sauce

I recently had a Biriyani and enjoyed it, so I had to try one here and see how here does it.

On arrival this smelled nice, then I saw the red sauce? ok, this was different to the normal style of Biriyai’s I have seen or had.

I started with the rice, which was very nice and had nice flavours, I then tried the sauce and it was nicely rich and creamy with a little kick to it.

I tried them both together and the sauce overpowered the Biriyani, which is a shame as I hoped it would have worked well together.

Mango Lassi £2.95

As you probably already know I love a mango Lassi and try to have one when I go to any place that does them.

So how does here do them? I had to order and find out.

This looked good, and now it was time to taste.

This was a very nice Mango Lassi, and I enjoyed every sip. I would have got a second one but I was very full so maybe on my next visit.

Visit Overall

Tonight’s visit was an interesting one, it started with confusion then moved to just ok and ended on a Lassi.

Flavour-wise all dishes were nice but just ok, I wasn’t blown away or instantly thought I would have it again…well apart from the Mango Lassi.

Have you been here? or had takeaway? let me know your thoughts.

NEW Berlin Strasse and Doner Panini at German Doner Kebab (Glasgow) 2022 : Review

GIFTED

The Visit

The guys over at German Doner Kebab sent me a wee ping to invite me to try the new Berlin Strasse and the Doner Panini.

I have had a few gifted items before and loved them, I have also visited GDK a few times and always had a good experience so I took them up on the offer and took a wee visit.

I was doing a click and collect, so the photos are ok, but due to the drive home they got a little squashed so do ignore that.

The Berlin Strasse

‘Your choice of Doner meats, tomatoes, onions and fries, wrapped in a Lahmacun with spiced minced beef, lemon and parsley’ Served with our yogurt signature sauce

This was a good-sized meal, and I couldn’t wait to unwrap it.

I cut it down the middle to make it easier to hold and it instantly reminded me of a Gyros but with doner meat.

I took a good bite and ohh this was nice, I could taste the meats and the chips and it all worked very well together.

This is a meal in itself, and I didn’t have any fries or drink with this…it was very very filling.

The flavours of this were really nice, but I did feel the chips masked a little of the amazing meats and mayo flavours.

Doner Panini

Your choice of Doner meats, our signature garlic and yogurt sauces, shredded cheese, tomato and onion. Served toasted in our new Sourdough panini bread.

The other new item on the menu was the Doner Panini and I do have a thing for Panini so I couldn’t wait to take a big bite of this.

On opening this the smell was so good, my mouth instantly started to water.

I took a big bite and WOW!!!! now, this was an instant hit!

The flavours of the panini, meats and mayo etc all worked perfectly and the flavour was so so good! I could have easily had this again that’s how tasty it was.

I finished this very easy and will be ordering this at my next GDK visit.

I highly recommend this and if you do check it out let me know what you think.

Overall

Firstly a big thanks to German Doner Kebab for letting me try their two new menu items.

For me the winner was the panini it just had so much more flavour, but don’t get me wrong both were really nice but the Doner Panini was hands down my fav and one I will be ordering again.
