Changes for 2020


Hey all

A late Happy New Year!

So its now 2020 and I thought lets start the year with positive changes, for the blog and also for me.

So lets start with the blog.

You may have seen some posts that have the social icons, this is the new layout for my 2020 blog posts. You may think is that it? well the address and telephone number above them are clickable so it makes it easier to GoogleMap them or call them from your browser.

I have a few posts from 2019 still to post as I went out a lot, so you will still see some old style mixed with the new till they are fully published.

Something I noticed that not many bloggers add (there are a few that do), is obviously they rate the food, the service and atmosphere etc but most don’t mention if there are disabled toilets, and how clean the toilets are as that’s a factor that could affect your dinning out experience as if the foods good but the toilets are yuk you kinda remember that more than the meal and probably put you off going back.

So this makes finding more details about the restaurant or business much easier for you, and benefits you and the businesses.

I am also making a change with regards to the style of my writing, since I started I was always praised that what I said in my posts were straight to the point. I will continue this but just add a little more detail, which will improve your reading experience.

One more thing, I will mention if a restaurant etc does Halal food 🙂 plus I will be blogging about a few other topics this year to 🙂 so lots of variety coming your way.

The changes for me…

This year I am going to start eating better, and trying more vegan options so again this will be good for me and give you more variety.

I am also going to try and improve little aspects of my everyday diet, so I will post about that to when I feel the times right.

Overall :

Overall as you see just small improvements that hopefully you will enjoy 🙂

Thanks again for the continued support

Till the next post 🙂

Green Chilli Cafe (West End, Glasgow) : Review

I have been here before, probably around 4 weeks prior to when this blog is dated.

I went with my girlfriend and best friend, that night I wasn’t too hungry but they really enjoyed the food so I was hungry tonight and decided to take a visit.

On entering here you have to go upstairs, this visit and last nobody was downstairs to say “just go up” which is ok if you know this if not you feel a little out of place just heading up.

Last visit we were seated to the right (where the booths are), tonight to the left where the little tables are….this is where tonight took a little bad turn.

Sitting down it was nice but not as nice as the booths area, and this is where my overall score drops instantly by 1 point.

The walls to my side look like someone threw their dinner on it, and the stains have been left for a very long time. It wasn’t loads, but it was enough that it really should have been painted!! This wasn’t good as a quick paint, would have fixed this (-1 point).

The Food…

Tonight I wanted to order a starter and a main, as last visit my best friend said his was really nice.

I saw they did a pre-theatre menu, so I opted for that £12.95

Drink

Mango Lassi

Unfortunately I didn’t catch the price of this, but I am guessing £3 or £4 (will fix once I find out). I am a big Mango Lassi fan, so I always try it wherever I go and tonight I did just that.

I have to say this was probably the best one I have had, so I am looking forward to having it again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Value for Money : 5

Starter

Chicken Pakora
Breast of chicken in spicy pakora batter.

On arrival this smelled and looked good, so it was time to dig in.

This was really nice, the flavour was good, the chicken was tender and the batter was just crispy.

I really enjoyed this and would have again.

Value for Money : 5

Main

Chicken Rogan Josh

On arrival again this was another dish that smelled really good.

This was really really good, there was enough chicken, the sauce and flavour just perfect.

I would have this again.

Value for Money : 5

Side

Pashwari Naan

On arrival it looked ok, and now it was time to taste as Pashwari is my fav naan.

Oh, this was not good! basically it was just a plain naan with the coconut etc lightly sprinkled on top.

There was no sweet filling, not even a little….I was very disappointed.

I wouldn’t order this again, not good guys!!

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 1
Value for Money : 1

Overall

Overall it was a really mixed night, to starter and curry was very nice but the dirty walls and the naan was really bad.

I was really disappointed tonight, as the last visit my friends had a really nice meal and were seated in the booth area which was clean unlike tonight.

Will go back? not sure….

Sorry guys.
