Jay’s Grill Bar苏格兰调情自助餐 (West End, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

When I stayed in the West End I wanted to visit here, as it was basically on my door step.

Finally today I visited with friends, and it was all our first time here.

The Buffet Grill

This sounded very cool, and I was very excited to see how it all worked.

I was told the best thing to do is pick 5 to 8 dishes as they are brought out for enough to suit the table amount.

On arrival of all the dishes filled the table, and I now understand why he said only 5 to 8 dishes as they are BIG portions. If you do visit please do this, as you can always order more!

We waited till the broth was warm and started cooking. We opted for one half spice the other half lamb broth.

For me I don’t use chopsticks so this was hard for me to grab anything, but at the end of the lunch I spotted a ladle that would have been useful at the start for me….I will learn as it would be much easier for my next visit.

Food wise it really depends what you order and how you cook it, what I can say is everything I had tasted really good and very fresh. Just make sure you do cook for the correct time, if your unsure just ask someone as the staff are all very helpful and very friendly.

If your not a broth person, you can just have meats as its really down to you what you get. We wanted to do a bit of both, to try a lot of different things.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

This was such a cool experience after we all figured out what to do and how long to let things cool.

Everything was very tasty, and for me the clear winner was the Korean black pepper steak was the best!!! so good and I can’t wait to get more of this….and the funny part is I am not a steak person yet I would have this again and again.

If its your first time here just ask a member of staff to explain how the menu works, and then order what you like and enjoy.

Check them out.

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.

Cosmo (Silverburn, Glasgow): Review

Cosmo
Ground Floor
Silverburn Shopping Centre
Barrhead Road
Glasgow
G53 6AG

V: 9th July 2019. T: 0141 880 6880. W: www.cosmo-restaurants.co.uk


The guys over at Cosmo sent me an invite to come and have a meal at their Silverburn Restaurant, and I accepted and set a date.

To be honest I have never heard of a restaurant called Cosmo at Silverburn, so I had to do some research.

If you know Silverburn, Cosmo is situated at the Cinema end but just outside…this explains why I have never seen it, as normally the cinema is as far as I usually go.

Looking Around

On entering Cosmo is very very nice inside, it has a very modern, clean and nice design/look to it so I was very impressed as most buffets I have been to are just so so in style.

I took a walk around all the areas to start with, and could see they catered for many tastes and styles and the food smells were really good.

The Food…

I had to let my stomach and eyes do the talking tonight, and I had to try a lot of food so I was lucky I was very hungry.

Starter

So I selected different items so I could see how most of the starters tasted, yup there was lots more to try but I didn’t want to fill myself up and not be able to eat my main and sweets.

Firstly yup as you can see my presentation sucks, but hey its a buffet and its my plate so I didn’t mind…

I tried everything on this plate and can honestly say, it was very good, everything well cooked and full of flavour.

Presentation : n/a
Portion Size : n/a
Flavour : 5
Value for Money : n/a

Main Course

So now it was on to the mains…

I tried different rices, curries and even sweet n sour chicken.

Just like my starters this was really nice and very well cooked, if I was being very fussy the Sweet n Sour Chicken which is a big fav had a slight vinegar hint to it which it really shouldn’t….so I wouldn’t have this again due to that but apart from that everything else was really good.

Presentation : n/a
Portion Size : n/a
Flavour : 4
Value for Money : n/a

Desert

I was getting very full at this point, but there is always space for some sweets…

There was many to choose from so I opted for the above, and mmmm I loved every mouth-full.

The one part I didn’t try was the chocolate fountain, but I will try that on my next visit.

Overall

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Cosmo, for tonights invite and the meal. Secondly as always my review above is 100% my own thoughts, and has not be influenced just because I was invited.

Tonight I learned of a very nice buffet, that if I hadn’t had the invite I would never have known was there.

For me from start to end I enjoyed all the food, and found it very fresh and full of flavour which is hard to find at most buffets as they tend to loose the flavour by sitting out for ages.

Value for money I cant comment on that as tonight was free for me, but quality of food was very good and I will go back when I feel like a buffet when I visit Silverburn.
