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.

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.

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.

There are a good amount of Italian restaurants in Glasgow, and Gusto is one of the new kids on the block. I have tried Prezzo, Zizzi, Tony Macaroni, Bella Italia etc and found them nice but nothing special. I have a special place in my heart for Italy and Italian food so not finding a good Italian was a little disappointing.

Recently though I did find an Italian that is joint place with Gusto for me, but thats another review.

I tried to get in to Gusto a few weeks ago but due to it being very popular there were no tables free, but I have to admit the girl that was on the front was very pleasant. So I did the smart thing and book in advance.

The interior is very nice, its got a nice posh but casual atmosphere. It even has a small section outside at the front, that on a nice sunny day (granted Glasgow doesn’t get many) it would be nice to sit outside.

Starter:

I started with the mixed olives while waiting for my meal, these were very nice but sadly they had seeds which put me right off them so I only took half.

My starter was Calamari deep fried with lemon mayonnaise. This was very nice and was a good sized portion something I would have again.

Main :

My main course was Spaghetti Carbonara, one of my favourite Italian meals. This was done the correct way with eggs, and not cream and very tasty. If your a Carbonara fan get this, I also got a side of Polenta chips which worked very well with this.

Dessert:

Last I got a Chocolate Fondue which is to share and yes before you think what a pig I did share with my friend. To be honest its a good size, but I could have easily had one to myself.

Overall :

Overall my first experience at Glasgow Gusto Italian was very good, this and the Italian Cafe are currently my 2 fav Italians in Glasgow.

Next time I go back i will try different items.

So I tried the new burger place in Glasgow called Bryron Hamburgers, as I won a Twitter competition for a free £50 meal.

After winning the Byron £50 notes, I looked at some of the reviews and found it to be very mixed but that didn’t put me off as I love trying new places.

On arriving we were greeted and the staff were very pleasant and showed us to our table. All the waiters and waitresses couldn’t have been nicer.

Starter :

Buffalo Chicken Wings (12) served with blue cheese dip.

This was really really good and my friend and I split the 12….to be honest I could have just had the 12 to myself.

Main :

B-REX Burger (Doubled Up) and Fries

B-REX Burger (Doubled Up) and Fries : 2x 6oz hamburger, onion ring, streaky bacon, American cheese, jalapeños, pickles, onion, BBQ sauce and mayonnaise.

Now this was a mouthful but it was so good and very very very filling. I think next time I will be a good boy and not double up.

Dessert :

OREO CHEESECAKE

OREO CHEESECAKE : Oreo cookie base, vanilla and Oreo cheesecake, topped with… more Oreos.

After my big B-Rez I didn’t know if i had room for this but i tried and finished it. Its a very tasty cheesecake that I found to be very light.

For my drink I decided to have the Chocolate Milkshake, well this was massive and very thick but the best Milkshake I have had to date.

Chocolate Milkshake

Overall :

Overall I had a great experience and the food was really good. Yes I would go back again, as for burgers this is now probably my favourite place in Glasgow to date.

Also a big thanks to Byron Hamburgers for my win, very much appreciated
