Invited : 26th November 2019


Rock ’n’ roll-themed chain with a high-energy vibe serving burgers & American classics.

I got a wee ping in my inbox asking me if I would like to visit Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow, to try their Thanksgiving menu and I accepted and put it in my calendar.

This sounded very interesting, as I have not had a Thanksgiving meal for a few years now so it would be good to have one again.

Looking Around

I have had Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow, on my list to pop in and try so I was very excited to visit tonight. I have only ever been in the London Hard Rock Cafe, so I was ready to take a look around and enjoy the food.

On entering you go through the Hard Rock Shop and through the back to get to the restaurant, I spotted a few cool things in the shop but I was a good boy and didn’t get anything since its so close to Christmas.

Inside was very cool with lots of memorabilia on the walls, classic tunes playing and had a really funky but nice and relaxing atmosphere.

I was seated at the back, for me this was good as I got a good view of the whole place.

The Food

I was invited here to have Thanksgiving dinner, which if your not familiar with Thanksgiving dinner its basically like your traditional Christmas dinner.

I was given the menu to have a look at, and then asked if they can start preparing it….of course I said yeah! as I was a hungry boy.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Slow roasted turkey breast, roasted fresh vegetables, home-style classic stuffing, creamy sweet potato mash, cranberry sauce finished with a traditional turkey gravy £15.95 (Tonight Free)

This was a good sized portion, and it smelled amazing!!! after many photos and Instagram stories, I finally started.

I tried everything on its own first, to see how it tasted and how well it was cooked.

Let me start with the Brussels sprouts, I normally avoid these guys but I tried them tonight and I was VERY shocked. These had a really nice flavour to them, and nice and soft and guess what? I finished them all…nice ones guys!!!

Everything on this plate was really nice, full of flavour and worked well on its own and together,

Pumpkin Pie £6.50 (Tonight Free)

As I said at the start of this review, I have had Thanksgiving dinner in the past but not for many years. I have had Pumpkin Pie before, so it would be nice to compare them as the one I had in the past was homemade.

This tasted just like I remembered, and I enjoyed it very much.

I have a very sweet tooth so its not a sweet I would order a lot if I saw it on a menu, but it was Thanksgiving and it was the perfect sweet for the night.

I have been to BrewDog before but its been a while, so it was time for a visit and a beer.

Looking Around

In here has a nice cool, relaxing vibe and for me enjoyable to sit in, chat and eat and well drink.

The Food…

Tonight I was very hungry so it had to be a burger..

Main

Jackpot Burger £10.00

Instantly on arrival this looked and smelled amazing, so it was time to take a bite!!

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this was amazing the flavours, textures this has the perfect bite! and yes every other mouthful was just as good as the last.

Side

Sweet Potato Fries £4.00

I had to try the fries, so tonight I decided to see how BrewDog’s Sweet Potato fries were like.

First impression was this is a big portion, which I did have to leave some as the burger was mega filling.

The fries though were really nice, good flavour and had a nice soft crunch to them.

I would HIGHLY recommend this burger, as I cant wait to go back and have it again.

Harvester (Glasgow): Review

Harvester
Springfield Quay
Glasgow G5 8NP

V: 3rd June 2019. T: 0141 418 0810. W: www.harvester.co.uk


Here is a place I don’t tend to visit very often, the main reason being I am either never near a Harvester or I tend to find the service poor.

Tonight I was seeing Alladin and decided to take a visit.

The Food…

I wanted to try a few dishes so I opted for the 2 Course Meal Deal which cost £12.99, here is what I ordered.

Main Course

Nachos

For a starter, this looked good and a nice portion size…

After a few bites it was just OK, for me it needed more cheese. If they layered this better it could be really good but they didn’t so was just ok.

Starter

The Beyond Bean Burger

Yes a bean burger shocker, and guess what I didnt really like the flavour.

Adding some sauce to the burger helped, as it gave it better flavour but hmmm not for me.

Overall

Overall it was just a ok experience, the only good part was the staff as they were very friendly and helpful tonight.

For me I dont know if I would go back in a hurry but hey I tried it and tried something new which is always good.
