FoodHUB App Aroma Chinese Takeaway (Cambuslang, Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at FoodHub asked if I would like another nice wee takeaway and to do a review.

If you dont know this is the second time I have worked with Foodhub and you can read my first review HERE

This time I was in Cambuslang rather than the West End of Glasgow, so I got to try one from this area.

Looking Around The App

The App and takeaway

I got a discount code from FoodHub, and now it was time to decide where and what to order….this was a hard decision.

I ended ordering from a Chinese restaurant called Aroma Hut Chinese Takeaway, I have never ordered from here but the menu looked good.

Just like the last time using the app was mega simple, it was really easy to use and navigate.

The food

Chicken Maryland

This was ordered as my parents love this, I tried a little of each item and everything was very nice and very fresh.

My parents said it was one of the best they had tasted, and it was very fresh.

Crispy Shredded Chicken with Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce⠀

This one was for me, this is a big fav of mine so I thought lets see how here does it and compare.

Firstly the egg fried rice was cooked perfect and had a great taste.

The Crispy Shredded chicken was REALLY GOOD!!!! and now in my top 2 for takeaways! the flavour was amazing, and it was so good I have ordered this again since this first order.

Kind prawn with green pepper in black bean sauce⠀⠀

This is one of my dads favs, so I got to try a little.

Again the egg fried rice was really good, so now on to the black bean part

Wow this had a really good flavour, and combined with the prawn and rice it was really nice…This is a dish I would order when I felt like a change.

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the app, and the food.

Just like the previous time I used FoodHub the whole process was easy, simple and no learning curve needed. The other part was I liked is that Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers, as Foodhub is on average 15% cheaper than the rest!

The food was really good, and now is one of two of my top local takeaways….well when I come to Cambuslang.

Child Friendly: Yes (well behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


One year ago today I was a very cheap 1st date, I took my now girlfriend to a bloggers event at Temaki see the review here.

This was good as the food and drinks were all free, so was a win win situation for me plus it was a fun night.

One year later I couldn’t do the 1st anniversary of our 1st date again being a cheapo! so it was time to think where should I book? and the first place that came to mind was Lychee as its been one of my favourites for a long time.

I know as a food blogger I should try different dishes, but anytime I come here I always have the same main dish so don’t expect that to change as its just too good not to have.

The Food…

Starter

SPICY THAI CRACKERS WITH SWEET CHILLI DIP £3.50

IMG_5184

I am a prawn cracker lover, and I first tried these at some point last year and since then if the mood takes me I order these.

Yes the title says spicy but its only a very very small kick.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 4

CRISPY DUCK ROLLS £4.70

IMG_5186

Duck for me is something I am starting to get a thing for, normally it would be chicken or pork.

I decided to give these a shot tonight and see what they were like,

WOW I loved this and so glad I tried this, the duck rolls were nice and then when you added some of the dip to them so so good the perfect bite.

This is something I will be having again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Main Course

CRISPY SHREDDED SWEET ‘N’ CHILLI CHICKEN £13.90

I always have this dish plus the rice when I come here, as a blogger I should really try something different…..but really this is too good not to have.

The title says chilli, but it’s only a small kick which for me is perfect as too spicy I cant handle.

Presentation, taste all perfect and its very very moreish!

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Overall

I would like to thank Lychee for making tonight very special, and for the amazing food as always.

If you have never been here, please do take a visit you won’t be disappointed.

59 Mitchell Street

Visit Date : 30th October 2016

Lychee has always been a favourite of mine when it comes to Chinese food, its got that modern yet classy look and also a very relaxing atmosphere inside. Anytime I have been there the staff has always been nice, and very attentive.

I have tried a few places in town but for quality, flavour and cost the Lychee for me is always a winner, even my friend says that and he also has tried a few places.

The Lychee has won a few awards, see below to name a few:

TOP 25 CHINESE RESTAURANT IN THE UK — SUNDAY TIMES 2016

WINNER OF BEST ORIENTAL RESTAURANT — GLASGOW AWARDS 2015

WINNER OF BEST ORIENTAL RESTAURANT — FOOD AWARDS SCOTLAND 2015

Starter

Normally I always order the Prawn Toast, as I know I like it and its a safe option for me but since I am blogging I cant keep reviewing the same food all the time.

So today I decided to try the Vietnamese King Prawn Rolls, and I am very glad I did.

Vietnamese King Prawn Rolls £5.60

1wexoctesfxjt1wk-vv-voa

This is very very nice, and now my new favourite starter!

The portion size for me was perfect, as I know my main is large and very filling. The rolls were full of flavour, and using the soy dip just added that little extra flavour .

Main

Ok so I am always drawn to this dish and I promise the next time I visit Lychee I will have something different, but this dish for me is the best!

Loaded with flavour, nice and tender and very filling and tasty. The presentation is great, as it comes in a hard noodle basket that yes you can eat if you wish but the chicken and the rice are more than enough for me.

Crispy Shredded Sweet ’n’ Chilli Chicken £13.50

Dessert

Lychee Daiquiri £5.90

Yes I know its not really a dessert but it was my last course….so technically a dessert.

This was Lychee’s special cocktail, and as you can see from the photo its nicely presented.

The cocktail was very nice and refreshing, and the cost about the same as other restaurants around Glasgow.

Overall :

Overall again just like every time I come here, I cant fault any of it. I don’t give out very many 5/5 reviews but here every visit has been that.

I would like to try a few more dishes (starters and mains), so my next visit I will order something different….I promise.

If your looking for good quality food, then here is a must! please do check it out I promise you wont regret trying here.

The Rating for this visit (out of 5) :
