So since my last visit in 2017, I decided to pop back into the Swan and get some food as it was again another lovely day.

The Food…

I was happy to see that basically, you can get practically anything! and I really mean that. The menu has a vast choice, so you will always find something you like.

Main Course

Chicken Burger & Chips £7.75

This was a nice burger and excellent value for money as there were two chicken burgers between the buns.

The chips were nice and many of them as you see, but I needed to add some salt (this is more a personal taste thing)

Today I visited this area of Crete, as I like to travel and see places when I go on holiday.

I passed here walking to some sights and a guy came out to try and pull us in, but I wasn’t hungry at that point so I said maybe later (he probably thought I was just saying that).

After taking in more sights my stomach told me its time for some food, so I decided to keep my word and head back.

The sea view from this location was very nice and added to the relaxing atmosphere.

Since I was here I wanted to try something different, as I always go for burgers so I went with the Calamari.

The Food…

Starter

CALAMARI 13.95

crispy squid seasoned with spices, fresh dill and onions served with tzatziki

On arrival, this was a good sized portion, so I was happy as I was very hungry.

As you can see from the photo, you have your tentacles and your more traditional rings of calamari.

Perfection! the tentacles and the rings were cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. The flavour was good from the batter, and with some extra mayo.

Overall I have no complaints, the view and the food was really good.

As I drank my nice cold beer and looked out at the sea I was very relaxed.

If I visited again I would come back here.

Another year, another new place for me…I love coming across new places to eat.

Fpizza were lovely and sent me an invite to come along and try them out, and I accepted and added to my calendar.

Fpizza is newly opened and in the town centre of Milngavie, and is about a 7 min walk from Milngavie train station so it’s very easy to find.

Looking Around

On entering I was welcomed and shown to my seat.

Looking around Fpizza it had a very nice and relaxing decor, and it was a busy night and the atmosphere was good.

Where I was seated I had a great view of the whole place, and looking around everyone was enjoying themselves and the food….now it was time to eat!

The Food…

I decided I wanted to have one pizza and one side and that’s all….well unless I had room left for some ice cream.

The pizza I went for was Number 7 normally £9.5 but free tonight thanks to Fpizza.

Tomato, mozzarella, rocket, prosciutto, parmesan shavings and evoo 

Sorry for the more red tones through the photos, where I was sitting there was a red light behind me.

I also added Tuscan Sausage to this order….normally extra toppings are £2.

As soon as the plate touched the table, I was ready to dig in!!

The first thing I noticed was how good the flavours were than how good the base was….it was thin and really good. Everything about this pizza worked!!!

I was very full by the time I finished this, but I wasn’t that over full way I normally am when it comes to eating pizza… I was a comfortable full if you get me.

Side

Polenta Chips (Rosemary & Parmesan) £6 (N/a tonight)

IMG_6711.jpg

I decided to have a side mostly due to curiosity, and normally I go for fries as my side so I decided to try this.

Firstly this was a good sized portion, 2 or even 3 sticks would have been perfect and still good value for money.

If you are thinking of normal fries then you will be very surprised by Polenta fries, as they are very different and taste very different. These were very nice, had a nice crunch and flavour.

For me, I think I will stick with normal fries, but this is a personal preference but please do try them they are really nice.

Overall

Firstly I would like to say a big thanks to Fpizza for my invite, I had a really nice time and it’s always great to find new places 🙂 ones that I will definitely be going back to.

For me, I really enjoyed the pizza, and left feeling a good full rather than the difficult to digest full I sometimes get when eating pizzas. I think this is mostly due to the the base, as it was very nice and thin.

Fpizza is now in my top 4 pizza places, and on my Top Spots page.

As I said at the start Fpizza is easy to get to from Glasgow, a train then a very short walk and I promise its worth it.

See you soon 🙂
