The Bull (Great Western Road, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I was asked to pop along to The Bull, for some brunch and cocktails…which had to be mocktails as I was driving. I added to my calendar and visited with my friend.

While I was having my brunch something familiar hit me about this place, and then it clicked…it used to be Munro’s as I came here ages ago on a date.

They have changed the interior and its very very nice, much better in my opinion.

The Brunch

Weekend brunch £25 per head (every Saturday and Sunday)

This looked very nice, and to be honest there was too many nice sounding options on the menu it was difficult to pick something.

After ordering I popped up to the buffet (there was LOADS more than what I am showing in the above 3 pics)

This was eye candy, and everything looked good. I decided to be a good boy and go for a croissant and some meats and cheese. This was very fresh, and wasn’t too much to fill me up…which was good as I wanted to enjoy my main dish.

I opted for the following

Chargrilled Sourdough, Smashed avocado, feta, poached egg

Firstly on arrival how good does this look, it was instant eye candy.

I had to take a bit of everything, so that way it would be the prefect bite.

WOW! everything worked very well together. You first get the sourdough flavour followed instantly by the feta and then egg and they all just combine to be a great moreish flavour.

No lie, every bite was the same so good and packed with flavour.

I highly recommend this dish if you visit.

Mocktail

I was the designated driver today, so rather than a cocktail….I had to opt for a mocktail.

I asked for a sweet and fruity mocktail, and this is what they made. I cant comment on its name, or its cost but if you show them the photo i am sure they will be able to make it for you.

It was so tasty I had 3

Overall :

Firstly a massive thanks to the guys at The Bull for my invite, I had a fantastic time and really enjoyed my brunch.

I cant fault anything today, the staff all very friendly and helpful, the food packed with flavour and very very moreish….and the value for money if you come and visit is great.

The buffet is loaded and you are sure to leave after your meal feeling full and happy.

I am adding here to my top places to visit page.

Base (Leven, Scotland) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I have never been in this area before or even driven passed it, but today I was near the area and did a search for somewhere to have breakfast and here came up and looked good so I headed for it.

The Food

Eggs Hebridean £6.50
Soft poached eggs on English muffin with black pudding, smothered in hollandaise sauce and garnished with rocket and cracked black pepper.

I didn’t know what to order, but I thought lets try something different and I spotted this and sounded very nice.

On arrival the presentation was just as good as it smelled, so I couldn’t wait to dig in as I was very hungry.

Ohhh mmmm I could taste everything, and it all worked very very well together.

It may not look much but it was VERY filling and filled my hunger gap.

Hot Chocolate £2.25 plus cream (extra 25p)

I have not had a hot chocolate for a very long time, and something todays said order one.

I had to order it with cream, its the only way to have a good hot chocolate.

It tasted as good as it looked again and very mmmmm

Brunch at MAYZE Coffees & Food (West End, Glasgow) : Review

974 Argyle Street
Glasgow G3 8LU

V: 17th February 2019.    W: facebook.com/mayzefinnieston


Today I was very undecided where to go for brunch, so I walked along Argyle Street and passed many places. There was a few that I wanted to go into but, I decided to try here as I saw a woman having something to eat and it looked very good.

Looking Around

Inside is an ok size, but it’s very popular so a few people who looked in passed by which is a shame…hopefully they returned.

Inside for me was ok, a little plane and just needed some more colour to give it more of a warmer feel.

The Food…

So looking at the menu it was all very healthy and more importantly for some people Vegan-friendly.

I asked opted for the French Toast, which is what that lady was having.

French Toast £7.50

homemade cinnamon brioche, stewed apples, custard and crumble

Now as you can see from the above photo, this is why I had to try this today look how good it looks!!!!

I asked before ordering what the crumble was and if it contained nuts, as I can’t do nuts but it didn’t which I was very happy about as I could order this the way it should be.

First bite….and the other bits were very very good!!!

Presentation : 5
Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Value for Money : 5

Overall

Overall my first visit was good, I do have two issues but due to the food being good I can easily forgive them.

First I did have to wait a while for the order to arrive, but they were making the custard fresh so I can forgive the wait.

The second one, looking at the table tops mine and around me they could do with either a good clean or a fresh coat of paint….or both….

I am planning on going back as I want to try the Eggs Benedict as that also looked very good.
