River House (Stirling, Scotland) : Review

V: 12th January 2020


I decided to try somewhere new today and came across this place.

Looking Around

Driving up it looks so beautiful, I don’t know if this is still some Christmas decorations or these illuminated trees will be there all the time but wow look how amazing this looked.

Heading inside again the wow factor continued, this places was so nice inside and the atmosphere instantly was very relaxing.

Appetiser

Breaded Haggis Cake £6.95

Champit potatoes, turnip purée, crisp leek, whisky mustard sauce

I was going to order my go to starter then decided nah, lets order something different and this dish jumped out at me.

Visually this looked really nice on arrival, and it was a good portion size as a starter.

Taste time…

This was very good, the haggis has the consistency of a burger and everything together wow the flavours were just amazing.

Main Course :

Simon Howie Prime Steak Burger £12.95

Milk bun, traditional burger sauce, fries, onion ring.

Added extras : Cheddar & bacon £1.50 each

Wow this was a big portion, and the smell was amazing…time to dig in.

I am not an onion ring fan, so I left this.

The burger as a whole was very good, it was very thick and the flavours plus my little extras made it very tasty.

For me it could have used a little more sauce, but thats a personal preference.

Dennistoun Bar-B-Que (Duke Street, Glasgow) : Review

V: 10th February 2020


I have been told about Dennistoun Bar-B-Que a few times, and always meant to take a visit but I was never really in the area.

Tonight I decided to take a drive and visit and see what I was missing.

The Food

The people who recommended here told me I have to get a burger, so I couldn’t let them down could I?

Wow they had so many great sounding burgers it was very difficult to choose, but continue reading to find out what one I ordered tonight.

Side

Seasoned Fries : £2.85 (V)

Skinny fries!! this was a great start as I LOVE skinny fries, and they smelled really good.

These were seasoned and had a slight kick to them, and were very very nice.

Main Course :

This was tonight’s burger of choice…

Kinny Burger £8.25 (add bacon £1.15 extra)

Now how good does that look, and that’s exactly what I thought when my order was ready.

This looked and smelled amazing so it was time to dig in and see how good these burgers actually were.

WOW!!! this was amazing!!! it was perfectly cooked, the bacon nice and crispy, and every bite was just mmmmmmmmm

Is it bad that I could have easily had another after this as I really enjoyed this!!!

Drink :

I was also told to try the Mexican Cola from here as its much better, so I did…

Mexican Coca Cola

I cant remember the cost but lets say around the £2/3

This tasted just like how Coca Cola used to taste when I was in high school and I will be getting this again when I return.

Visit Overall :

I am so glad that I drove here tonight, I had a great meal and one that I could easily have again.

The burger for me is currently my favourite, and currently for me my top spot for burgers as this was just mmmm

I will be adding Dennistoun Bar-B-Que to my top spots page.

See you soon guys 🙂
