Until today I had never really heard much about here, and today I was meeting Emma Eats and Weekends with Wendy for brunch.

Unfortunately Wendy couldn’t make it due to unforeseen circumstances, so it was just me and Emma.

This place is a little off the main street that people would walk on, so it is so easy to miss which is a shame as it’s a really nice.

As you can see from the above photo its very nice inside, and has a really nice and relaxing atmosphere.

The Food…

homemade cheesy beano, spiced red pepper sauce, yoghurt & herbs £8.25

IMG_4686

I have not had a cheese beano in many many years, so when I saw this I had to have it.

This sounded like an interesting take on the beano, so when it arrived and looked as good as you can see in the photo I was hoping it would taste just as good.

This was very very very good, it brought back memories from childhood when I had a beano plus the peppers added that extra flavour.

I would highly recommend this.

Flourless Chocolate Cake, creme fraiche £4.50

After the beano I was very full, but hey there is no harm in looking at the desert menu right? well yeah…as I ordered the chocolate cake….greedy me

I have a sweet tooth and when I saw this it sounded interesting, flourless? how different could this taste….

This was the best chocolate cake I have had, it was sweet, and very soft and very very moreish!!!! yes I could have easily had another but I didn’t want to be too much of a pig today….more so since it was brunch.

If you love chocolate cake take a trip to here and try it! you will not be disappointed.

Overall

I am very glad that Emma recommended here, as this is a little gem that is hidden.

As you would expect by the name “Duck Club” duck does show up a lot on the menu, but there are other dishes to if you are not a big fan.

I look forward to going back and trying more dishes and having more chocolate cake mmmm I am drooling already!

See you soon.

** UPDATE : At the time of posting this, the Glasgow branch has just closed which is a BIG SHAME to as the food, milkshakes and staff were all really good. I loved the milkshakes, I really hope they re-open as there are a few burger places near and they are no way as good as here was!!!!

I have visited Byron Burgers a good few times now since it opened, and every time I have never been disappointed in any way.

More and more recently I have seen some Facebook Ads for a new Christmas Cheesy burger, and thought I like cheese, I like burgers so I need to visit and see what its like.

The Food :

Today I decided to try two dishes, these were small ones.

Cheesemas Feast £16.95 (Burger + Side + Drink)
6oz hamburger, Barber’s cheddar, Barber’s Red Leicester, Byron cheese, crispy Grana Padano, red onion, smoked tomato ketchup, Grana Padano aioli and a jug of Byron cheese sauce

IMG_4070

Lets start with the burger..

On arrival this looked good, and I liked how there was even more cheese in the little pot next to it.

I just went for it and poured the extra cheese on top, the smell and look was really good so I couldn’t wait to dig right in.

Firstly as soon as I picked this up I knew this was going to be one messy burger, but I didn’t care as it was very very good!!! and very messy.

The crisp Grana Padano was really nice and I could have had more of that.

Overall this was amazing and I hope they keep it on the menu, or if not have something similar to this as its really good and the cost is very good value for money.

Bacon Cheese Fries

So I opted to have even more cheese and went for the Cheese Fries.

What can you say about fries with cheese and bacon apart from these were good 🙂 mmmm

Chocolate Milkshake (plus baileys shot)

IMG_4068

I LOVE the chocolate milkshakes here so couldn’t wait to order the chocolate one again, but I decided to try the one with baileys shot to see what its like.

It was ok with the shot, the chocolate milkshake on its own is much better and I have to say is the best I have ever had!!!!

Overall :

My return visit to Byron was a good one and a very very very cheese packed and filling visit.

Go try this before they stop it and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

My First Tantrum Doughnuts Visit (West End, Glasgow)

IMG_1043

27 Old Dumbarton Road
Glasgow G3 8RD

V: 27th August 2017     W: www.tantrumdoughnuts.com

Child Friendly: Yes      Accepts: Cash & Card


Since the start of the year, I have seen many bloggers talk about this place and its been on my list to visit for ages.

I have a mega sweet tooth, and from what I heard was these are very sweet…..perfect!

I am never in this area normally on the train or in a car passing here, but today I was as I was going of brunch at a near by restaurant.

Tantrum have two locations on this street, but one is where the doughnuts are made and the other is where they sell them.

 

The Doughnuts :

6 in a box £13.50

What I got :

  • 2 x Chocolate Truffle
  • 1 x Candied Bacon and French Toast Glaze
  • 1 x Crème Brûlée
  • 1 x Salted Honey Glaze Brioche ring
  • 1 x Espresso Martini

Overall :

Well it took me a little time to try each one, and no before you ask I didn’t eat them all in the one sitting or one night.

The flavours of each one was very strong, and how it was described is exactly how it tasted.

I will be stopping by again to get some more, as these could easily become addictive.

See you soon Tantrum!
