Bibimbap (Glasgow, West End) : Review

V: 28th December 2019


I have never been to Bibimbap in Glasgow before, but now that I stay in the West End I spotted that Bibimbap opened a new location in the spot where Nam Tuk Tram Stop was….so I had to to check it out.

Looking Around

One of my favourite places to visit was a place called Nam Tuk which Bibimbap now occupies so I knew how funky inside was…..so how was it now?

The layout inside is excatly the same, but the design is different.

The first thing I noticed was that the funky wall artwork has now been removed, and that the bar now looks much more minimalistic and cleaner.

What I really liked was the cool multicolours umbrellas and the neon signs on the grassy wall….that was very nice.

The Food

As I said I had never tried here or any Bibimbap before, so it was going to be a very random choice tonight.

Appetiser

Ya Chae Man Doo (v) £5.20

Vegetable Dumpling

So I have had dumplings before in the past, so I thought what better way to start and compare the food here was to try these.

These were very nice, really good flavour and had a slight crunch to the texture. Dipping them in soya sauce also enhanced the flavour, and I really enjoyed these.

Main Course :

Saeu £10.50

Korean style sweet & sour prawn

I spotted that this said it was spicy, but to be honest I thought maybe it would have a tiny kick to it….well I was wrong…

WOW firstly this was VERY spicy, but that could just be me as I am not that great with mega spicy foods.

Secondly the flavour was amazing!!!, if this didn’t have such a kick this would have been a perfect main for me.

Visit Overall :

I am very impressed with Bibimbap, and glad I visited here.

Tonight food wise was really good, but WOW that main was super spicy for me….next time something not as spicy and I will double check with the waitress lol

Dennistoun Bar-B-Que (Duke Street, Glasgow) : Review

V: 10th February 2020


I have been told about Dennistoun Bar-B-Que a few times, and always meant to take a visit but I was never really in the area.

Tonight I decided to take a drive and visit and see what I was missing.

The Food

The people who recommended here told me I have to get a burger, so I couldn’t let them down could I?

Wow they had so many great sounding burgers it was very difficult to choose, but continue reading to find out what one I ordered tonight.

Side

Seasoned Fries : £2.85 (V)

Skinny fries!! this was a great start as I LOVE skinny fries, and they smelled really good.

These were seasoned and had a slight kick to them, and were very very nice.

Main Course :

This was tonight’s burger of choice…

Kinny Burger £8.25 (add bacon £1.15 extra)

Now how good does that look, and that’s exactly what I thought when my order was ready.

This looked and smelled amazing so it was time to dig in and see how good these burgers actually were.

WOW!!! this was amazing!!! it was perfectly cooked, the bacon nice and crispy, and every bite was just mmmmmmmmm

Is it bad that I could have easily had another after this as I really enjoyed this!!!

Drink :

I was also told to try the Mexican Cola from here as its much better, so I did…

Mexican Coca Cola

I cant remember the cost but lets say around the £2/3

This tasted just like how Coca Cola used to taste when I was in high school and I will be getting this again when I return.

  • Value For Money : 4
  • Overall : 5

Visit Overall :

I am so glad that I drove here tonight, I had a great meal and one that I could easily have again.

The burger for me is currently my favourite, and currently for me my top spot for burgers as this was just mmmm

I will be adding Dennistoun Bar-B-Que to my top spots page.

See you soon guys 🙂

Calif (Romania, Bucharest)

.Calif
26A Renfield Street
Glasgow
G2 1LU

V: 17th May 2019.  W: www.calif.ro


This was my last full day in Bucharest, and I decided to hit the shopping centre as it was raining outside and to see my first Romanian shopping centre.

The Food…

I liked how after ordering I stood next to the preparation area, and could see the guys make your meal…the one downside is it made me even more hungry while I waited.

Starter

Big Dil 23 Ron
2xcarne, 3xcașcaval, mix de legume, castraveți murați, sos roșu, maioneză.

So all I knew was it was a chicken wrap with other stuff inside, to be honest, I just went by the picture that was on display so this was a surprise but it looked good….now to taste it.

OH WOW this tasted much better than I expected, packed with flavour and very filling. I got the meal deal which included the chips, they were just ok and needed some dipping sauce.

Presentation : 3
Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Value for Money : 4

Overall

Overall I was pleasantly surprised that this tasted just as good as it looked, and I would try more from them.

See you on my next visit to Bucharest.
