Visit Date : Sunday 5th June

Obu Pan Asian is a new kid to the Glasgow restaurant block. Its located within Princess square. The menu offers the choices in Thai, Japanese and Chinese giving a nice mix of styles and tastes.

I have been to Obu probably around 5 times now….maybe more and so far I have never been disapointed.

This visit since I new I would be blogging about it, I decided to try a few different things on the menu.

Starter :

My starter consisted of two options as currently I am not taking anything after my main.

Pulled Pork Baos which are Light, soft Chinese steamed buns with a filling.

Pulled Pork Baos

I have ordered a Bao before but thought it was just ok, but I really liked the pulled pork Baos.

Tiger Prawn Tempura with a spicy Kimchi mayonnaise dip

Tiger Prawn Tempura

This was my first time trying this and I would order this again, my only complaint was that there were only 3 a few more would have been nice…..but then again it is a starter.

I have to admit this has been the nicest starter I have had in a long time.

Beef Bulgogi Burger

For my main I went for the burger, as you know by my other posts or tweets my favourite place for burgers in Glasgow so far is Byron.

Beef Bulgogi Burger : 7oz beef burger marinated with ginger, soy and sesame oil. Soft bun, kimchi mayo and cheese.

This was again very nice, but I have still to find a burger that is better than the ones from Byron. If your in Obu and like burgers do try it, dont like what I have just said put you off from trying it.

Overall :

Overall Obu Pan Asian, Nippon Kitchen and the Lychee are my 3 top places in Glasgow for asian food.

Please do check out Obu Pan Asian, when I go back I will try a few other items on the menu so keep watching for future reviews.

Sugar Dumplin (Glasgow)  — Rum Club Pampero Event

Event Date : Sunday 5th June 2016

If you know me you know that I am a regular at Sugar Dumplin, as I have been going here since it opened last year. I have visited Sugar nearly every weekend since the opening, so all the staff all know me by first name.

I will do a review for Sugar and my previous visits soon, but this one is about tonights rum club event.

The first event was about Angostura, and a good crowed turned up. What made the first one special was this event was held on Sugar’s 1 year birthday which was a slight shock at how fast the year had been for me. We got to watch a video for this one, and tried many shots of Angostura from different years.

This is the second rum event that Sugar Dumplin Glasgow has put on, and the second one I have been to. The rum tonight was Pampero.

Sugar did a great job at organising this, and they also were generous enough to put on some free food to go along with the events tasting shots.

This one wasnt as large as the first, but to be honest I think it was a lot better as it felt a little more personal. Everyone all seemed to enjoy it, plus I saw a few faces from the first event so was good to meet them again.

Again the presentation from the rum company rep was very good, and we all had a good time and good laugh.

I look forward to going to the next event, as its great to learn about the different types of rum plus its good to meet a new crowd.

Miller & Carter Steakhouse (Glasgow) : Review

47 St Vincent Street
Glasgow G2 5QX
UK

T: 0141 404 2914
W: Miller & Carter Glasgow

Visit : 28 May 2016

Miller & Carter recently opened up a new restaurant in Glasgow, and since its been opened I have heard good things about it. Miller & Carter specialise on steaks, which for me I am not keen on but I did notice they did burgers which I like.

I tried to get in about 2 weeks ago but there was about a 3 hour wait and I didn’t feel like waiting. I did the smart thing and book online, so I knew I could get in and try it.

The restaurant has been done up very nice, its very smart and modern inside and very spacious.

On entering the staff were very welcoming and I was shown to my seat. The waiter introduced himself and explained the menu etc.

Starters :

For my started I ordered Dusted Calamari.

Dusted Calamari

I have to say this was very nice, and probably the best Calamai I have had so far in any Glasgow restaurant. The portion size was perfect and yes I would order this again or recommend it.

Mains :

For my main I ordered the bacon and cheese steak burger with sweet potato fries.

Overall I was a little disappointed with this, as I felt the burger didn’t really have much flavour to it as the bacon flavour on it came over more. Don’t get me wrong It was nice and yes I am in a restaurant that focuses more on steak, but It just lacked something for me. My friend he ordered the T-Bone steak and it did look really nice, and I tried a small bit and coming from someone who doesn’t eat steak I really liked this and would give it a try.

Dessert :

For my last course I ordered the Crème brûlée.

Crème brûlée

I have always loved Crème brûlée and this was very nice, as you can see by the photo it comes with 2 strawberries on top to be honest this wasn’t needed as its nice just on its own and the crust could have been harder but that’s me being fussy.

My final part of the meal was an After Eight cocktail which was amazing, thats all I will say and yes I would have more of these anytime.

After Eight cocktail

Overall :

Overall my experience was very good, the only letdown for me was the burger but it is a steakhouse and focuses on steaks. As I said i did try the T-bone steak and i was surprised how good it was, as any time I have tried steak I have hated it and this T-bone was very very very nice.

Would I go back?…..probably! and I would be willing to try the T-Bone next time but since it’s costly might wait a while till my pennies build up again.
