111 by Modou (West End, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I have heard many people talk about 111 and its always been positive, so I added it to my ever-growing list of places I want to visit.

Tonight’s visit I was meeting friends for a good catch-up and they suggested we go here, I was really looking forward to it…plus they said its a 10 course tasting menu.

The number of courses was like wow but I knew everything would be a good size and the menu looked mega tasty!

The 10 Courses

Don’t panic! I wont be doing a full 10 course post, more an overview and my favourite courses.

I have never really done a tasting menu, I have always avoided them as I thought I would probably need to have something to eat after it….I was very wrong!

We arrived at 7pm and didn’t leave till just after 11pm, so it takes roughly 3 hours to have your full taster plus any tea’s coffee’s after it.

The décor inside is lovely and the atmosphere was very good, it was a packed night! and everyone looked like they were loving what they were having.

From start to finish everything was packed with flavour! visually looked amazing and every course was very moreish!

I was very impressed with everything tonight and I can see why many of the people I follow on Instagram have been raving about it here.

My favourite courses were :

  • Course 2- Polenta
  • Course 4 – Mackerel
  • Course 6 – Pork Cheek
  • Course 10 – Vanilla Crème Brulee

I would love to have some of these courses as a full dish, but then again I really enjoyed all the dishes tonight and the fun of trying many items.

I am 100% going to try another tasting menu soon! and I will be adding here to my top spots page!.

Candied Ice Cream Parlour (Denny, Falkirk) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I had been a wee drive to North Berwick today, and I thought I need to stop by Candied on my way home as its been a while since my last visit.

Todays Order

I fancied trying some cookie dough again, as I really love Cookie dough….so I went for the following:

Cookie Dough Tub £3.50

I will start by saying I was acted if I wanted any ice cream etc with this but I just wanted it the way it was…yeah boring but its so good and more so when warm.

Just as you would expect this was sweet warm yummy and so so so moreish!

I could just have this again and again and again!

Stuffed Cookie Biscoff £7.50

I saw this on Candie’s Instagram, and made a note to get it on my next visit…and today I ordered it.

Biscoff is a win with anything and with cookie dough, it should be amazing!

Texture-wise it had bits broken through it so you had a crunchiness, but mmmm can you tell I liked it! 🙂

Super sweet, super yum! and just Mmmmm so so good!

Visit Overall

I was glad I dropped in to Candies again as it fixed my sweet tooth for a little while.

I will be popping back in a few week, well thats the plan as I will be in the area doing an abseil for a charity.

Keep watching for what I get at that point.

Creams Cafe (Springfield Quay, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I visit the Quay a lot these days and always keep looking at Creams, but never go in so today I did just that and ordered some sweet treats.

Inside for me was just ok. it lacked some atmosphere but it was the sweet treats I was wanting.

The Food

Chocolate with Or-E-o cookie Dough £7.75
Double chocolate cookie dough served with Or-e-o Gelato, milk chocolate sauce, crumbled Oreo cookies and creams wafer.

I felt like cookie dough today, and this caught my eye as it sounded the sweetest so it was ordered right away.

On arrival this looked so good, and the side of ice-cream was not really needed. After a few photos I jumped right in.

WOW this hit the spot! this was sweet, crunchy, gooey, everything I needed today.

I will admit after I finished it, I could have easily had one more but I was being a good boy so I will maybe have two on my next visit.

Frozen Slushie Mixed (Regular £2.50)

Recently I have had a thing about slushies and having to order one when I see a place does them.

Today I got the mix.

Just as you would expect, its cold and packed with flavour!

This was so good after my cookie dough!
