Tonight I was walking around this area of the West End, and I decided to pop in here and have a beer and a burger.

Looking Around

On entering it instantly hits you that this is more a pub/bar, but they do have a section through the back where you have booths to eat.

Since I am getting into the craft beer scene, I spotted a few names I recognised so I was going to try a beer I’ve not had before.

As I was shown to my table I had a look at some of the food everyone else was having, and ohhhh they also do really nice looking Hot Dogs.

Main

Southern Fire Burd £10.95

IMG_7562
Crispy chicken, bacon, cheese & buffalo sauce

On arrival, this looked very good, and a good sized portion.

First I tried the chips…

These were nice and fresh and had a good taste but a little salt was needed but that’s more a personal preference.

Now the burger…

mmm, the chicken was nice and crispy but had a tender centre, the sauce and cheese and bacon just added to the flavour.

This was a nice chicken burger!!

Tonight I was here to attend an event, but I arrived a little early and was very hungry so I thought let’s have a little snack.

This was my first time in this Cafe, and looking around it had a nice look and tonight it had a nice atmosphere.

The Food…

Haggis Bonbons £6.50
With Johnnie Walker Gold label Whiskey Sour Dressing

This was just a little snack as I didn’t want to fill myself up too much, plus I had a very big lunch.

On arrival, this looked nice and also smelled nice and a perfect size for a starter or snack.

This was very nice, the coating was just crispy and no more and the flavours were really good. I could have easily had more, but it was just a snack.

Overall

Overall from my short experience before the event, it was nice and relaxing and the food I had tonight was nice.

Here is a place I would visit again, but this part of the West End I don’t tend to visit too much but if I do I will stop in again and check out the food and drinks.

Dockyard Social Event (Glasgow) : Review

V: 26th October 2018.    W: dockyardsocial.com


While I was at work I got an email in my inbox, and it was an invite to come to a place called the Dockyard Social for a blogger event. The Dockyard is a place I had heard the name a few times, but to be honest not really much about it.

The Dockyard was on my list to visit, so I kindly accepted the invite and added it to my calendar.

Dockyard Social is a new street food and bar hub near Finnieston, close to the SECC, Hydro and the West End.

After work, I made my way over to the Dockyard…

First Impressions :

When my taxi arrived outside I was thinking to myself “is this the right place”, it looked like a big warehouse….so this was interesting.

On entering the building wow it was massive and very cool inside.

Tonight apart from the blogger event, there was a Halloween event happening so that’s why it has all the funky spooky items everywhere.

We were given a welcome cocktail which was very nice, one was Melon (not a fan) and the other looked interesting as it had a syringe….yup that’s the one I went for.

While enjoying my cocktail, I took a walk around seeing what food stalls were here.

These food stalls are always here, and what a variety you get to pick from. You have so many options, you have to have a little something from a few. I am not sure if they are always here, or if the vendors change to give you constant variety.

Plus there was a few more, but it was very busy and I didn’t get a chance to take photos.

It was now time to have something to eat, as I was very hungry so this was going to be a tough choice as there was so many nice items to pick from today.

The Food..

Tonight I opted to get two items, one from one stand and one from another.

NomNam : Korean Fried Chicken Wings £5

IMG_3160.jpg

Well, these looked and smelled very nice, now it was time to taste.

WOW, these were very good….and VERY messy but worth every bite and mess all over my fingers and mouth. The flavour was really good and very moreish.

Value for money was REALLY good, and if you visit Dockyard do try these.

Lit : Salt & Szechuan Pepper Chicken Wrap £5

IMG_3267.jpg

This was on my list to try all night, as it sounded so good.

Firstly all this for £5 wow really good, and the smell was amazing.

Every bite of this was really good, the flavour of the chicken with everything else was perfect.

Cocktails…

I noticed that they did cocktails, and all of them sounded very good

Overall

This is a very cool place, and if you follow them on their Dockyard Social Facebook Page you will see they do many fun events.

I will definitely be going back as it was a very good evening, and the atmosphere was really fun.

Street food is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to eat out in Glasgow and having Dockyard on the scene just makes it even easier to have your Street Food fix.

Please do take a visit here to one of the event, its a very cool place with really good street food.

See you guys soon and thanks again 🙂
