The Delivery

I know I have ordered from here before, and have since the last time using FoodHub app but tonight I wanted to order again from them.

Starters

King Prawn Sesame Toast with Dip

I love a good prawn toast, but some takeaways its either soggy or too crispy and it just puts me right off eating them.

Tonights and just like previous orders, this was perfectly cooked. Packed with flavour and just the right crunch to them.

As you probably guessed these were completely finished.

Spare ribs in Honey Sauce (small)

Ribs plus honey sauce is always the way to go!

The flavour of the ribs, with the honey sauce, is just the best!!! plus when you finish the ribs and if there is still some sauce left you can dip your prawn crackers in it mmmm

Salt & Chilli Crispy Chicken

Something a little different for me.

The smell from this was so so good, and it made my mouth water instantly.

The chicken was nice and tender, and had a lovely slight kick to it and tasted really good!!!

I enjoyed every single bite of this from start to finish.

A solid 5/5

Grilled Chicken with Lemon Sauce

This wasn’t for me, as I couldn’t eat all of the above alone.

I did taste this and here is my thoughts.

For me the lemon chicken again was tender and had a nice flavour. The sauce was nice, not too lemony but still very nice and worked nice together.

Salt & Chilli Oriental (West End, Glasgow) : Review

Salt & Chilli Oriental is from award-winning TV and Lychee Oriental chef Jimmy Lee, and its aim is to serve the best Cantonese street food.

The Takeaway

I have known Jimmy Lee for many years now, as I used to frequent his Glasgow restaurant Lychee Oriental which I highly recommend you check out as its always amazing food and the staff are lovely.

Jimmy sent me a wee message to come and visit Salt and Chilli for a takeaway and I couldn’t wait to try the food as I am sure its just as amazing as the food from Lychee Oriental.

The Goodies

The smell from these were amazing and I couldn’t wait to open them and dig right in.

Crispy Duck Rolls £n/a (normally £5.50)
Handmade 24hr Marinated Duck

Firstly as I said earlier in this post, the smells were amazing and mega mouth-watering.

I first tried one on its own with no dip, so I could taste the full flavour. WOW it was a perfect bite, had a nice little crunch, and then the flavour of the duck explodes in your mouth it was so good.

Now time to try with the dip, oh wow this adds another dimension to the flavour and for me this was the winning combo for me so so so good.

I could have easily had much much more of this, but I had the salt and chilli box to follow 🙂

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Salt & Chilli Box (Inc Dip and Side) : Special £n/a (normally £11)
Wings | Rib | Chicken & Fries

As soon as I opened this box the smell hit me mmmmm everything looked and smelled good….now time to taste.

I started with the chips, firstly thin chips are always a win for me and these were very nice and had a good kick to them.

Next was the ribs, these had a really nice flavour and the meat slide right off the bone.

Lastly was the wings, again really nice flavour and perfectly cooked.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Jimmy Lee and the guys at Salt and Chilli Oriental for tonight’s treat.

Everything was cooked perfectly and packed with great flavours.

I have no hesitation recommending Salt and Chilli Oriental to you, as I loved everything I had tonight and it was very very tasty!!

I will also be adding Salt and Chilli Oriental to my Top Spots page.

Hidden Lane Brewery and Wood Winters Wines Pop-up (West End, Glasgow) : Review

The Visit :

I was invited to pop along to the Hidden Lane for that Saturdays pop-up shop event with The Hidden Lane Brewery and Wood Winters Wines and Whiskeys.

When I used to live in the West End I have popped down to the Hidden Lane a few times, for either Afternoon Tea or the little shops. I then kept seeing signs for the brewery and I guess it was so well hidden I couldn’t see where it was.

Today when I visited I am glad to say I found it.

For me, Wood Winters is a new name, but I always like to learn about new places shops etc as it’s always fun to find something new.

Hidden Lane Brewery

Let’s start with the Hidden Lane Brewery.

If you have been following me on my Instagram, or seen a few of my 2019 now posts (thanks to lockdown) I enjoy a nice beer and have taken a few groups for a Brewery tour in Glasgow so I was very excited to see these guys today.

I got chatting to the guy behind the brewery and he definitely knows his stuff, plus he told me a few of the things that he wants to do once lock down ends….and one of them I will 100% be going to do.

I did get gifted some beers today (the top 6), but I also purchased some (the bottom 6) as I always like when I am invited to events to purchase something as every little helps.

The beers I got :

Tropical Ale 4.4% abv

This was the third beer I tried.

So the name “Tropical” I started to think what could this taste like? would it be sweet? well I popped it open to find out.

Firstly the smell was lovely, again it had a nice sweet fresh aroma

The taste was again fresh, and yes tropical a subtle hint of pineapple which was really nice.

This is definitely a perfect summer drink.

Raspberry Saison 4.5% abv

I actually started with this one, as it sounded very interesting and also sweet which is good for me as I have a sweet tooth.

I chilled it for a few hours, then popped it open.

This looked interesting and smelled really nice, so only one thing left to do is taste.

ohhh yes this was nice, fresh and yum! this hit the right spot for me!

This is a great summer beer, and for me all year round beer as its got sweetness, flavour and very refreshing.

Al’s Session Lager 4.2% ABV

Most beer drinkers like a good lager, as they are an easy drink, refreshing and perfect on a warm day.

This beer is very light, nice first taste and nice after taste and refreshing.

I really liked this one, but the Nitro and Raspberry ones are still my favourites.

80 Nitro Shilling 4.5% abv

The second beer I tried was this one.

Wait a minute! this was just as good as the first one I tried!!!

It had a great flavour, not too light or heavy and had a really nice aftertaste.

I am now really looking forward to trying the other beers.

Another solid 5

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Lager Lager 4.5% abv

So by the name I am guessing its a Lager…

The other lager was nice, light and refreshing so lets see how this one is…

For me this had a nicer flavour than the other lager, and again very light and easy to drink.

The aftertaste again was pleasant and tasted really nice chilled.

Wood Winters Wines & Whiskey

I enjoy my beers, rums but I have never really got into wines and its something I would really like to get into.

Today I visited them at their pop-up and had a look at their wine list, they all looked good and sounded good but I didn’t know what to get…..this is where I need to learn more about wines.

I opted to purchase the following :

Durello Spumante Brut Palazzi (Italian) £8.00

I poured this out, sat down and relaxed with a glass with Netflix.

Ohh I really like this one, it reminds me of a prosecco but deeper if you get me. It has a lovely flavour and is very light and easy to drink.

Tonight I drank about half the bottle, as I wanted to leave some for another night.

I can see myself buying this again, it hit all the right spots for me.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to The Hidden Lane for the goodie bag.

I really liked todays event as I found somewhere new, and got to try products from two new places…well new for me.

Both the wine and the beers were really good, as you have seen from the review above.

Please do check them both out, and follow them on their social media accounts to get updates.

Cheers.
