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.

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.

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.

Tonight I was going to an event and wasn’t sure how much food would be at it plus it had alcohol so I needed something fast and filling….so Smash Burger it was as it was close to the location I was heading to.

Again just like last time, it was very busy, but we managed to have a seat and quickly ordered due to the time limit tonight.

Finally, I got to try a burger here, and this one sounded very good.

This looked very good, and due to being hungry and time limit, I just went for it.

The burger as a whole was very nice, very tasty not the best in Glasgow but it was very good and hit the spot.

Overall

My second visit here was just like the first, the atmosphere was ok, staff very nice and the food was good.

I would say here tops McDonald’s, Burger King and Five Guys for me so if your a fan of them do check out here as I think you will switch.

I am now interested to come back and try a few more burgers, plus the shakes I wanted to try on my first visit.

See you guys soon Smash Burger

I heard about this place opening a month prior, but I couldnt remember where it was situated.

On one of my walks about the West End, I spotted it and said next time I am hungry I will go here…..so today I did.

Blues Burger £8.95
Crispy bacon and blue cheese

Firstly the burger didnt come with fries, so you still need to order them as a side.

On arrival this looked good, and the blue cheese smell mmmmmm

If you dont like messy burgers then this one isnt for you, but if you dont care give this a try.

Food wise the burger was nice, not the best in Glasgow but it was really nice. I would like to go back and try a few more burgers etc as the menu looked very good.
