Kathmandu Fusion (East Kilbride, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

Today I took a drive to Stranraer and on the way back needed a place to eat, my friend Chris who was with me suggested this place and I set the satnav and off we went.

The Food

I had no idea what to order tonight, so I just randomly choose my dishes.

Chicken Satay £5.50
Chicken Tikka Tossed With Onion, Peppers & Chef’s Special Sauce

So like me, your first thought is, this dish is red not a brown colour…yip but that’s how they do it here.

I learned tonight that Satay means meat served with a sauce, not like the peanut sauce we are all used to here when we see satay.

The chicken was very tender, and the sauce was very nice. The flavour of the sauce was slightly sweet, rich, peppery and very nice.

I really enjoyed this dish, even though it did confuse me at the start.

Chicken Biriyani £9.95
A Delicious Combination Of Rice With Meat / Vegetables Served With Raita & Biryani Sauce

I recently had a Biriyani and enjoyed it, so I had to try one here and see how here does it.

On arrival this smelled nice, then I saw the red sauce? ok, this was different to the normal style of Biriyai’s I have seen or had.

I started with the rice, which was very nice and had nice flavours, I then tried the sauce and it was nicely rich and creamy with a little kick to it.

I tried them both together and the sauce overpowered the Biriyani, which is a shame as I hoped it would have worked well together.

Mango Lassi £2.95

As you probably already know I love a mango Lassi and try to have one when I go to any place that does them.

So how does here do them? I had to order and find out.

This looked good, and now it was time to taste.

This was a very nice Mango Lassi, and I enjoyed every sip. I would have got a second one but I was very full so maybe on my next visit.

Visit Overall

Tonight’s visit was an interesting one, it started with confusion then moved to just ok and ended on a Lassi.

Flavour-wise all dishes were nice but just ok, I wasn’t blown away or instantly thought I would have it again…well apart from the Mango Lassi.

Have you been here? or had takeaway? let me know your thoughts.

Tuck Shakk (East Kilbride, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

If you have been following my blog or Instagram you will have seen I posted a lot about Tuck Shakk.

I used to get a wee order from them when they started out in the West End of Glasgow. I recently looked them up and spotted they had a shop in East Kilbride and it was only a 10 min drive away.

I checked out the menu and took a visit.

The Order

Crunchy Burd £5.95
Plain Jane with cajun mayo and slaw

I am sure this is their signature burger that I had many times in the West End.

This was a big burger and smelled really good, I also ordered alongside a portion of fries.

The fries were nice, but it was the burger I was really looking forward to.

I took a big bite and mmm yeah just as I remember.

The crunch was just right, not too hard but not too soft….the chicken was mega tender! it melted in my mouth and the flavour was really good! I enjoyed every bite from start to finish and the best part was I didn’t feel bloated after it like some burgers.

Deep-Fried Oreos x8 £5.00

I also spotted this on the menu and I knew I had to try and see how it tasted.

I have tried a deep-fried mars bar in the past and really loved it so I thought will this be better or just as good?

I opened the container and ohh these looked interesting, and I took a bite…

The deep-fried Oreos are not as sweet as they normally are, but they still had a good taste. I then dipped it in the sauce and mmm nice.

I could have easily had more!

Overall :

It was great to head back to Tuck Shakk and have their burgers again, I would highly recommend you check them out when you can.

Do let me know what you think of the Oreos if you try them.

Bistecca (East Kilbride, Glasgow) Takeaway 2021 : Review

The Delivery

I have wanted to try here for ages, but never go around to it and tonight I finally did.

I didn’t know what to order so I just selected two random dishes, and hit order.

Starters

Pollo dorato £5.95

I like a good chicken finger and if its got a nice dip, so when I opened the box these looked good and smelled good.

I took a nice bit with and without the dip.

Without these were very nice, and the chicken was very tender. The coating was light and didn’t take away from the chicken flavour. With the dip mmm yeah they needed a dip just to boost the already existing flavour.

I could easily have these again.

Buffalo Mac n Bacon Pizza £11.00

Yes you read that right, and all my Italian friends and followers will be shouting WHY!!!!!!! but I wanted something random and to see how it tasted.

Visually this looked interesting and it smelled nice, but would it taste nice? well it was time to give it a try.

I took a nice big bite…

Firstly the base was very thick but I think thats because the mac and cheese would make a thin base very soft….the mac and cheese tasted ok and the bacon helped with the overall flavour.

This was very filling, I ate about 3/4 of it and had to leave the rest as I was MEGA full.

Would I order it again? probably not but it was interesting and tasted ok…I think I will stick with the Italian classic pizzas.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Overall :

I am glad I tried here finally, and I will order from them again but maybe something less random.

Do check them out on their Instagram or on JustEat for your next takeaway.
