Swadish 5 Course Heat and Eat meal for 2 (Glasgow, Merchant City) : Review

GIFTED

Swadish is back woohoo!!!

I have been keeping an eye on when Swadish were going to do a takeaway, and they are now doing a great one.⠀

They gifted me a 5-course Heat and Eat for 2 meal, and I couldn’t wait to dig in and start eating.⠀

With the takeaway you get instructions on how to heat each item, and for how long so that they taste great.

Nibbles

POPPADOMS

These poppadoms were lovely and crispy, and had a great flavour.

They worked extremely well with the dips and spiced onions.⠀

Crispy Battered Kale

Wow now this was my first time trying Kale, and I think I am in love.

This was so nice and super moreish.⠀

I cant wait to get this again.

Spiced Onions

You can’t go wrong with spiced onions, these were mega YUM!!!!!⠀

Starters

Tomato Shorba (Soup)

I am not a soup fan, but wow this was very tasty, really nice flavours….and if you normally don’t like tomato soup you would love this.⠀

Chicken Chat (Wings)

The chicken meat was very tender, and had a nice flavour….finger licking good as they say.

Onion & Potato Bhaji 

I am becoming a big fan of Onion Bahji and mmmm these were so so so so good!!!!!!!!

Main Course

As you have seen from above the starters were supper mouth wattering

I couldn’t wait to dig in to the mains, as they all looked and smelled amazing.

Chicken Tikka Masala

The chicken was very tender, and melted in my mouth.

The sauce was nice and creamy and had an amazing flavour.

Lamb Karahi

I am not a massive Lamb fan, its something I have to be in the mood for but I opted for this dish to see what it was like.

I am now converted, the lamb was tender, and again another amazing flavour.

Delhis Chaana Masala

This had a nice little kick to it, but the sauce was very creamy, and overall again another really nice tasty dish.

Pilau Rice

The rice was nice fluffy and is the perfect accompaniment for an Indian main.

Plain Naan

Fluffy and very nice, naans are ideal served as a side dish to your favourite curry.

Desert :

Yup and theres more…

Gulab Jamun

This is a big fav of mine, as its something I ALWAYS order and mmmm so good.

I could have easily had many many more of these 🙂

Overall :

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

Firstly a big thanks to Swadish for making my Saturday evening special.

The food tonight was amazing, and that is really the only way to describe the food.

Everything was cooked to perfection, had amazing flavours and mega moreish.

I have been to Swadish a few times, and plan on visiting again when I can. I can honestly say the food, service etc was perfect.

If you want to taste how good Swadish food is then follow them on Instagram, Facebook etc and send them a message. The Heat and Eat platters are going fast, so you need to get your order in or you will need to wait till next weeks.

Kitchen Punjab Platter (Glasgow & East Kilbride) : Review

GIFTED


I was sitting having a look at different profiles on Instagram last week, and I spotted Kitchen Punjabs account and the food and cost caught my eye so I started following.

On Saturday 20th the guys sent me a message, to see if I would like to try one of their platters.

About

Fresh & Home-made Punjabi food from our kitchen to yours, cooked fresh on the day. Free Delivery in Glasgow/EK, 6-8pm and orders Wed & Sat only. Wednesday is the Vegan night.

Kitchen Punjab is fairly new about just over a month old at the time of posting this, and I got talking to them and learned that everything is home made, made with love and you can really taste this.

Heat & Eat Platter

The guys sent me the Heat and Eat Platter which consisted of :

  • Tadka Chawaal (Fried Rice)
  • Makhini Chicken Curry (butter chicken)
  • Chapli Kebab
  • Roti
  • Chicken Pakora
  • Raita
  • Salad

The normal cost for this is £20 with free Glasgow and East Kilbride delivery…..how good is that!!! and its can feed two people or one very hungry person.

You get a lovely little message with the platter, which also includes heating instructions. This part doesn’t take long, so if your very hungry dont worry you wont wait long to eat.

My Starter

So I got out all the starter items, and platted it up.

I started with chicken pakora.

The chicken pakora batter was not too crispy but not soft, just a nice amount of crunch. The chicken was nice and tender, and overall a really good flavour! I could have easily had more of these.

Next the Chapli Kebab.

I think this is the first time having this, so I was looking forward to how it tasted.

This was very nice, it was packed with a lovely flavour and I enjoyed every mouthful.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : n/a tonight
  • Overall : 5

my Main Course :

  • Tadka Chawaal (Fried Rice)
  • Makhini Chicken Curry (butter chicken)
  • Roti

I started with the rice and it was cooked perfectly, and I think I could taste cinnamon through the rice which added such a lovely flavour.

The roti was nicely cooked, and tasted good.

The curry wow! flavour wise really good, worked amazingly with the rice mega moreish. For me it had a big kick, but that didn’t stop me finishing it.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : n/a tonight
  • Overall : 5

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Kitchen Punjab for making my Saturday night better 🙂

The food from arrival, easy to heat, and the flavours I loved from start to end.

As I said these guys are pretty new on the scene, but going by the quality and flavours of the food you wouldn’t know it.

Follow them on Instagram, and check out their food platter deals. Saturday nights are normal platters, and Wednesday nights are for Vegans.

German Donner Kebab Boss Box (Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


Last week the guys over at German Doner Kebab (Glasgow), sent me over their Boss Box to try before the main launch.

I had seen them do some promo for this and I was very intrigued so I said yes and arranged the delivery.

I ordered this via Deliveroo app on my iPhone, but the app is also available on the android store.

GDK Boss Box

WOOHOO, the long-awaited BOSS BOX is out NOW. ⁣⠀

The Boss Box Options – A choice of original German Doner Kebab, KCal Kebab, Durum or Lahmacun Wrap served with Doner Spring Rolls OR Chilli Cheese Bites, a side of fries, signature sauces and beverage. ⁣⠀

The guys over at German Doner Kebab GBK were kind enough to gift me this meal the day before the Boss Box launch day.

I couldn’t wait to get it as GDK get a great name for their kebabs, and I was planning on visiting their for the first time then lockdown happened.

My fiancee and I were mega hungry, so we paid for an extra box.⠀

My Box

When ordering this box via Deliveroo, you get to customise it to your liking.

As you can see from the above photo, everything has a specific compartment in the box which is really nice.

For me I chose the following options :

  • Original German Doner Kebab (Mix contents, melted cheese sauce)⠀
  • Chicken Doner Roll⁣⠀
  • Curry Fries⁣⠀
  • Folkington Mango Juice⠀

Order placed, and waited for it to arrive.

The Food

I started with the spring rolls, and they had the perfect crunch and taste for me. I then tried them with the dips, and again they worked perfect with them.

The Original German Doner Kebab was soo good! every bite for me was really good!. I would definitely have this again.

The fries I ordered curry fries, which basically were normal fries with a curry powder dusted over them….for me this was a little bit of a disappointment. I don’t know what I expected but these were just ok.

Overall :

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

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at GDK for gifting me the boss box, and compliments to the chefs.

I really enjoyed this from start to finish, and its really good value for money. I was so happy to see that everything was packed so well! The worst thing is when you receive your order and find your food has spilled all over the place… not the case here! nice one guys!!!

I will be ordering this again, and trying a few other dishes from them either at home or when lockdown end.

Guys check it out and let me know what you think.
