Luciano’s Glasgow (Burnside) Takeaway 2022 : Review

Todays Order

I have wanted to try here since it opened, but when I looked in it was always busy.

I spotted that it was on JustEat so I decided to do a wee takeaway

The Food

Marinara £8.50
Tomato sugo, anchovies, capers, garlic, olives

I didn’t know what to order but I thought lets start with either a pizza or pasta.

I decided to go for a pizza tonight, and this one jumped out at me so I had to order it.

I opened the box and oh this looked and smelled very nice.

Now it was time to dig in and take a slice.

The first thing I got was the fish taste followed by the olives then the tomato sugo…this really worked very well.

The pizza base was nice, though I did find the crust a bit too doughy…this could be due to delivery time? but that was the only small issue.

I would order this again as I really liked all the flavours.

Patatine tartufo e parmigiano {v} {gf} £4.00
Skinny fries, Parmesan cheese, truffle oil

I wanted to try something small along side with the pizza, and chips came to my mind.

I opted for this as it sounded very nice.

I opened the box and the small was nice, and the texture of the chips was good but….where was the parmesan cheese?

I have had these at other places before, and also made them at home but I tasted no Parmesan cheese…I think they forgot to add which was ok as mistakes happen but most of the flavour was lost due to this.

As I said on their own they were nice, and tasty but the parmesan cheese would have made it much nicer.

Takeaway Overall

Overall todays order was good, I did like the pizza and the chips the only down part was the lack of cheese but as I said the chips were nice the way they arrived but that would have beer with cheese.

I will order again at some point soon and maybe even pop in for dinner so keep watching my blog.

Chaiiwala (Glasgow Quay) Invite 2022 : Review

Unit D2
Springfield Quay
Paisley Road
Glasgow, G5 8NP

INVITED
30-01-2022

The Visit

On 30th January I was invited to go to Chaiiwalal Glasgow for a wee bloggers event, I had been before and enjoyed the food so I accepted and added the date to my calendar.

Inside

As you may have seen from my previous blogs and Instagram posts, the inside is lovely!!! the room we were sitting in is the one pictured which can be hired for any business lunches etc.

The Food

As I said I have been here a few times already and tried a lot of items from their menu. So today I thought I would try something different.

Chicken Tikka in Naan (normally £3.95)
another street food classic, grilled boneless chicken wrapped in stone-baked naan with onions, tomatoes and yoghurt-mint chutney

I spotted this on the menu today and I knew I had to get it, I have missed this before and it sounded very nice.

On arrival just like my previous visits, the items are all wrapped up in what looks like an old Indian newspaper which I think is very cool.

Opening it this looked very nice and it was time to take a bite.

I had to take a big bite as the chicken tikka chunks were big, but once I did the flavours hit me instantly. This was very nice I could taste everything, and it all worked very well together.

The sauce used was really good and I look forward to having this again.

Chilli & Lemon Chips (normally £2.90 add £0.50p for cheese)
freshly prepared fries tossed in Chaiiwala spicy chilli and lemon chutney

This was another new one I spotted and had to try, when ordering the waitress asked if I wanted cheese with it…s I asked what she would recommend and she said yes with cheese so that’s what I did.

On arrival, this looked very nice and smelled nice too. I could smell the lemon from it which was nice.

Ohh these were nice, and they had a lovely flavour to them and a good after kick to them.

For me after eating half the kick was getting too much, but I persisted as it was very nice.

Chilli Paneer (normally £4.50)
lightly deep-fried cottage cheese chunks smothered in spicy onion and pepper sauce, garnished with spring onions.

My friend ordered this and I got to taste this, as this was my second option so it worked out perfectly.

I tried a few pieces and liked the taste, I think if I was to try and eat the whole dish I would have struggled as I am not good with spicy dishes or even a little spicy.

I am glad I got to try them and if you like paneer you should give this a try.

Caramel Chaii

Recently at my visits, I have had the mint chaii but today I thought let’s try something different, so I opted for the caramel Chaii.

Just like all the chaii’s I have tasted here this was very nice and very moreish.

If you want to taste really good tea, you need to come here to check out their Chaii menu!!

Chaiiwala (Glasgow Springfield Quay) 2021 : Review

The Visit

As you may have seen I was recently invited to Chaiiwala Glasgow to come and try some of their food, and I had a very good experience.

I always like to visit again t see if this new visit is up to the same standard as when I got invited…was it? read on.

The Food

At my previous visit I had spotted a few dishes I would like to try on my return visit, so that’s exactly what I ordered.

Butter chicken Roll (Roti) £2.60
succulent shredded masala butter chicken in a classic roti

I wanted to try this last time, but the Kebab Roti was recommended.

On arrival this smelled very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig in as I was very hungry.

Ohh this was good! the chicken was tender and the flavour of the butter chicken was so good.

I enjoyed every single bite.

Samosa Cone £3.60
five of our fresh best crispy vegetable samosas served with Chaiiwala chutney dip

Another dish I wanted to try last time was this, so tonight I did and I am very glad I did.

These were light, crispy and packed with flavour and very moreish.

I even dipped it in the additional chutney dip and it just added to the already lovely flavour.

Mint Chocolate Chaii (Large) £3.05

I saw this advertised on Chaiiwala’s instagram and had to try it tonight.

This was so so tasty! the mint chocolate chip flavour was perfect, not too strong or too sweet.

This was so good I had two tonight and will get this again on my next visit.

Thought this is a limited edition just for winter so check it out before its too late.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Along with my mint chocolate chip chai I ordered this as it would have been rude not to.

This is exactly as you would expect, it was sweet, minty, chocolatey goodness! and I loved every bite.
