Back again as I was in the area, and thought would take another visit.

Looking Around

I think since the last time I was in, the area where people dine has been done up? even just a little?

Main

Kimchi Cheeseburger £7.50
Beef burger topped with kimchi, cheese & mustard

Ok Ok yes I know I have had this before, but for me, this is all I wanted plus I wasn’t brave enough to try anything else.

Just like last time this was very nice, filling and perfectly cooked.

When this arrived I was thinking WOW its a bigger portion than I thought would come…..but that didn’t stop me eating it all.

For me, this was very good, and extremely filling and I would defo have this again.

Since I have started going to the West End of Glasgow more, I have occasionally passed this place and also thought I will need to pop in one day and give it a shot so today was the day.

There are 4 areas you can sit at :

  1. The Bar
  2. Outside
  3. Booths (inside to the left)
  4. Upstairs

Today’s visit we opted to sit outside as it was a nice sunny day, I had a quick look around inside and its really nice.

I had a quick look at the menu and decided lets try a burger from here, and see what its like.

The Food

Bacon and Cheese Burger : £7
6oz beef patty topped with melted cheese and bacon

A Bacon and cheese burger is a simple but nice burger, so I hoped they did it well.

When this arrived it smelled really good, and these chips AMAZING!!! this is exactly how I like my chips. I knew if the burger was going to be bad or OK, the chips would make up for it.

The burger was good, I wouldn’t say its the best burger I have had but it was good. The meat was nice and tender and had flavour, and the bacon and cheese added the extra flavour needed.

The chips well I can only say I could have had a BIG bowl of them just on their own as they were so good, so now I know where to go when I want chips.

Side Note : We also tried the curly fries but not as good as the ones above

Cocktail Time…

I couldn’t not try at least one cocktail from the menu today….

Drumstick Cocktail £5
A cocktail version using Absolute Vanilla, Raspberry Liqueur & Cranberry Juice, garnished with a Drumstick lolly

I have a sweet tooth, and I have tried this cocktail once before so it was one I had to try tonight.

This was really good if you have a very sweet tooth, my only issue was some of the raspberry’s they added were broken up and at the bottom of the glass which got stuck in the straw when trying to drink it. It didn’t really need these, and could have been left out.

Side Note : If you do want to eat the lolly, take it out once the cocktail arrives and let it sit as its very hard and needs to soften

Overall :

My first visit was good, I left thinking that was a nice cocktail and amazing chips.

The burger well for what it was it was just OK, its not in my top 3 places for a burger but I will go back and try some other ones.
