Ziques (West End, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

The guys at Ziques invited me to come for breakfast or brunch, so we set a date and I took a visit.

When I stayed in the West End I always passed here, but never went in and always wanted to and today I am glad I did.

I loved the little outside part, this would be nice when the summer hits or on warmish evenings.

Entering this had a really nice and modern look, and I was greeted and shown to my table which was upstairs.

The Breakfast

Benedict – bacon, poached eggs, hollandaise, sourdough £n/a (normally £9)

I saw a few things I would like to have tried but settled on this as it’s been a while since I last had one.

On arrival this looked really good! my mouth started watering instantly.

I wanted the perfect bite, so I made sure I had a bit of everything and then tasted it.

This was so good! the sourdough worked extremely well with this, the bacon was cooked perfectly with a little crispness to it and the egg and sauce mmm so good.

This is the best Eggs Benedict I have tasted in a long time!

Mrs Wilsons of Silloth 2021 (Silloth, Wigton) : Review

The Visit

When I was a little boy my parents and grandparents would take me different places in the caravan, and Silloth was one of those places.

Today I decided to take a random drive to see if I recognised any places, and to see what it looks like now…and grab a spot of lunch.

I didn’t do any checks to see where any cafes or restaurants were so it was just a random selection, after I parked the car I spotted this place and decided to pop in and give it a go.

The Food

Eggs Benedict Our Way £7.95
A toasted English muffin with crispy bacon, buttery scrambled eggs and creamy hollandaise sauce.

I have not had Eggs Benedict in a long time, so I thought lets try it here.

On arrival this looked very good and smelled very good.

This tasted very nice, and everything worked really well together. It was nice with scrambled egg, as it added an extra texture to the dish.

Overall it was very nice this way, and I would happily have this again.

Brownie Kitkat Topped

This looked interesting so I thought why not, diet can continue tomorrow….

This was a very nice brownie, it had a nice texture to it…the KitKat was just the part you saw and wasn’t backed through it.

Overall it was nice but it was basically just a brownie.

Overall I had a lovely lunch, and very happy I found this place. The other options nearby looked just ok, so I did pick the correct place for lunch.

If you are ever passing through or visiting Silloth I recommend you stop here and check them out.

Harry’s Dolce Vita (Knightsbridge, London):​ Review

The last time I visited here was about 20 years ago I worked out, as it was the same length of time since the last time I saw the musical Notre Dame de Paris in London.

This was the last day of my recent London trip, so it was time to grab some lunch and here was the perfect spot to have it in.

Looking Around

Inside is very traditional and classy, it has a posh Italian cafe style feel to it. The atmosphere is really nice, and you get cosy as soon as you sit down.

It was busy today so I didn’t want to take any inside photos, as people were enjoying chatting and eating.

The Food…

EGGS BENEDICT £8.95

Sliced roast ham on toasted focaccia bread, two poached hen’s eggs with hollandaise sauce and chives

Now, this was an odd option for me, as I am not a big egg fan but I haven’t had it in a very very long time and thought let’s try it and see.

I started with the fries and have to say these were nice, I think there were some rosemary hints coming through? whatever it was these were nice.

The Eggs Benedict I started and have to say wow this was very good!!! I would have this again as I loved the flavours. This has converted me from not having eggs to starting them again.

Overall

20 years later and the food atmosphere and service is still really good.

Yes, the prices are a little higher than you would normally want to pay, but one its London and to the location as it’s right next to Harrods.
