Swadish (Glasgow) : Review

V: 14th December 2019


I visited Swadish not long after it opened, as Ajay the owner and chef sent me an invite. That night was really good, as I loved everything I ordered and said I would be back.

I always keep my word if I say I will be back, sometimes it may be sooner than expected and sometimes longer due to my busy schedule.

Tonight I went back with my best friend Chris, and we both had an amazing night.

Here is what I had and thought.

The Food

Ajay said when I return I should try the fish, so tonight I had to try a fish dish.

I went in only wanting to have one dish, but when I looked at the starters I had to try something…so my one dish became two.

Starter

Sweet Potato Chaat £5.50 (Vegan)
Spinach, Fritter, Pomegranate, Coriander, Tamarind, Sweet Yoghurt, Pomegranate Reduction.

I wanted to try a few starters but after thinking what one to select, I left to a quick random selection.

This was a really good starter for me, as it was very light, nice flavours and didn’t leave me too full which meant I had space for my main.

All the ingredients worked perfectly together.

Main Course :

Punjabi Spiced Salmon £15.00
Tandoor roasted Scottish Salmon, Masala Potatoes, Tomato and Fenugreek Sauce, Raita.

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

mmmmmm that sums up every single mouthful.

The salmon was cooked perfectly and worked with the sauces and Masala potatoes! everything on the plate and every mouthful was perfect.

Desert :

Ajay came out and we had a wee chat, and it was nice to see him and have a chat again. He offered us a wee desert on the house, and you know me for my sweet tooth I couldn’t say no.

Melt In Love (tonight free thanks to Ajay, normally £7.50)
Ginger Chocolate Sphere with Chocolate Brownie, White Chocolate Mousse, Caramel Hazelnut Crumbs. Hot Caramel Sauce, Dehydrated Raspberries.

Firstly when this arrived this looked very nice, then when the sauce got poured over it oh it was another treat for the eyes. (will be shown in the vlog)

This was very sweet but so so good, the chocolate with the mousse and the caramel sauce oh so so good!!! this just like the other dishes was perfect! full of flavour, and all the ingredients worked amazing together.

This was heaven for me and my sweet tooth.

Beanies Flavoured Coffee : Review

IMG_0519.jpg

www.beaniesflavourco.co.uk


I saw Beanies advertised on Facebook or Instagram, and I took a note that I wanted to try them and see how their coffee is…..this must have been many many months ago.

Finally, I decided to go onto their website and order 4 coffee’s

I decided to go for a random mix :

  • Double Chocolate
  • Mint Chocolate
  • Cookie Dough
  • Caramel Popcorn

All of these sounded good so I couldn’t wait to try them when they arrived.

The Coffee

I started with the Popcorn, then the Mint next was the Chocolate and finished on the Cookie Dough.

I found the Chocolate and the Mint were my two favourites, they had a nice taste and a nice aftertaste.

The Popcorn was nice but just didn’t hit the spot for me, and the Cookie Dough this was a big disappointment for me…..I didn’t like the taste!

Overall

Overall I liked trying the flavours, I now know 2 I won’t get again and 2 I will so what’s next well you will just have to wait and see what my next purchase is.

The Mint was today’s order clear winner!

I have passed here many times and looked at the window and thought mmmm on display is some displays of what desserts you can have and they all look so good.

I started to check out Bing Soul on Instagram, and what I saw I knew I had to 100% visit as it looked amazing!!!

So I finally did….

On entering we were seated, I opted for the window seat so I could enjoy the outside view of people watching.

Cheeky Choco Waffle

WOW! this is what I said as it arrived.

To be honest I wasn’t sure how to start eating this, but I thought if its going to be messy so what and I just went for it.

It was amazing, packed with waffle, ice cream, cream, oreo bits soooo good perfect for my sweet tooth.

Word of warning after eating this you will be very full for the rest of the day.

I cant wait to have another.
