Tullie Inn (Balloch, Loch Lomond, ) : Review

V: 3rd August 2020


Today I took a drive down to Balloch to get some fresh air, and a late lunch come dinner.

I have visited Balloch many times, and I needed to clear my head and eat.

The Food

I have never been in here for food before, only coffee’s so it was going to be interesting to see how good the menu is.

Main Course :

Smoky Joe Burger £12.99
Beef chunk & brisket burger topped with slow cooked beef in a smoky sweet BBQ sauce, melted cheese slice and crispy streaky bacon.

Wow this was a big portion, and the smell was amazing…time to dig in.

I started with the burger, this had a very interesting but nice taste. Every bite was really nice, and the burger was very tender.

The chips were nice and crispy and had a nice taste, unfortunately they were just warm and no more so by the time I was finished my burger the chips were cold but it didn’t bother me too much.

Charcoals Peri Peri Takeaway (Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Charcoals Peri Peri asked if I would like to try some of their food for tonights meal.

I was actually look at their menu a few days before they contacted me, so it was perfect timing.

I then found out that Muhammad Sultan also manages Charcoals Peri Peri, if you don’t know Muhammad Sultan he works in Glasgows Charcoals Indian restaurant, he does amazing charity work and he is a really really nice guy and I consider him a friend.

What to order?

As I said I had actually had a look at their menu a few days prior to them contacting me, and I liked what I saw but couldnt decided.

So now I sat down and had a good think and this is what I ordered.

Charcoals Chicken Wings⁣

I opened the container and wow the amazing smell hit me, and then it was photos and dig in.

The chicken was nice and tender, and the flavour was very very nice.

⁣Gourmet beef burger⁣

I have not had a burger for a while, its mostly been chicken for the past few days for me so I was looking forward to this.

This was very nice, the flavour of the whole burger was really good.

This along with the chips was very nice.

I did add some extra sauce to my burger, but thats just a personal preference.

⁣Poppin Chicken ⁣

As soon as I opened the container mmmm they looked amazing and mmmm smelled amazing to.

Now these were so so good!!! the chicken was tender and the crispy batter had a great flavour. I could easily become addicted to these.

These were my favourite from my whole meal, and as I am typing this review I want them again 🙂

⁣Classic Peri Peri chicken (whole chicken)

Now this was a big bird!

Just like the chicken wings these had the same great flavour and also again very tender and succulent chicken.

⁣⁣Chips and Cheese⁣

A classic and splits a lot of people, some like it and others say nope.

For me chips and cheese is always a winner, the chips were nice and the melted cheese over them was perfect.

⁣Aloo paratha

Just like naan Aloo Paratha’s are becoming a new fav, and I have even made a few at home (but not as good as the restaurants…yet)

This was very nice, perfectly cooked and had a nice flavour mixed with a very small kick.

So good and mega moreish!

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the food.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Charcoals Peri Peri and Muhammad Sultan for tonights meal.

I was soooo full after all this, but I enjoyed every bite from start to finish. The flavours of every dish were perfect, cooked perfect and thoroughly enjoyed every dish.

As I said my fav from tonight was those Poppin Chicken, these were super addictive I am definatly going to get these again!!!!

I have no issues recommending Charcoals Peri Peri, from ordering to delivery to the food everything was very tasty and I enjoyed it.

Steak and Cherry Restaurant Takeaway via FoodHub (Glasgow) : Review

Partially Gifted


Recently the guys over at FoodHub.co.uk gave me £20 to spend on their app, and to take a journey with it from downloading to ordering and see what I thought.

The reason it says Partially gifted is I spent more than £20 that night, so I paid for the difference.

The Restaurant

Steak and Cherry have been on my list to visit for a while (my list keeps growing), and when I spotted it on FoodHub I thought yeah lets order tonights takeaway from them.

The Food

Now this was the hard part as I saw so many dishes I would love to order, but I wanted to be good and just get two mains and two sides.

Next time I order or visit I will try the other dishes that jumped out at me.

Steak and cherry legendary burger

STEAK AND CHERRY LEGENDARY BURGER £12.95
This also comes with a side of home made chips

When I ordered this I didnt spot the small text that said it came with homemade chips, I guess I was too hungry and just was focusing more on what I wanted to order.

This was a big burger, and looked and smelled good….so now it was time to dig in.

This was a big bite, the flavours of the beef, bacon, cheese and onion rings was nice and worked well.

  • Flavour : 4
  • Value For Money : 4
  • Overall : 4

Side :

Sweet Potato Fries £4.75

Sweet Potato Fries are starting to become my new norm for fries when I am out, so I had to order then from here to see how they did them.

These were nice and crispy, and had a really good flavour.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Steak and Cherry Bang Bang Chicken Burger

STEAK AND CHERRY BANG BANG CHICKEN BURGER £11.95

My Fiancee ordered this but I had to have a bite or two, so I could do a little review of this to plus just in case it could be one I would order next time.

For me this had much more flavour than my burger, plus is also had a nice little kick to it…I could have had more bites but I couldn’t do that as I did order the burger for me.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

more Sides

CURLY FRIES £4.25

These were the sides for the chicken burger (again we both failed to notice they came with house fries), and had a really good taste and just the right amount of crispness to them.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Mocktail

Cherry Mocktail £3.95

I wanted to get a little extra, but I didn’t see any desserts so I opted for a sweet mocktail.

This was really nice and refreshing and the cherry flavour was spot on.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Takeaway Overall :

Note : Just because this was partially gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the food.

Tonights takeaway from placing the order on Foodhub, to it arriving and was flawless.

The food we got was very nice and mega filling, for me tonights favs were the chicken burger and both sides of fries. The burger was nice, but I think the flavour of the chicken burger hit the spot for me instead.
