Swadish (Merchant City, Glasgow) : Review

V: 3rd October 2020


With my appetite slowly returning, I decided to take a visit to one of my favorite restaurants Swadish.

I have been here a few times and tried their Heat & Eat, which if you havent check out here VIEW as at the time I am posting this there is a mini lockdown for restaurants so check it out for a great take away!!.

I have never had a bad meal here, everything has always been very tasty and extremely morish.

Todays Order

As I said I wasnt too hungry but I wanted to try and see what I could eat, as there were 3 dishes I wanted to try.

The Food

Crispy Kale Bhajis £4.50
Battered Kale, Onions, Gram Flour, Minted Yoghurt.

This is something I would have never ordered, but today I wanted to give it a try.

On arrival this looked very nice, and also the smell was really good to. I am glad I did order this as it was nice and crispy with an amazing taste, everything worked really well.

This was a really good dish, the sauce, kale, crispness was really really nice.

Main Course

Butter Chicken Naanwich £7.00
Finger licking chicken marinated in lemon, lots of butter and tangy spices, toped with a caramelised onions and spicy tomato salsa.

I follow Swadish on Instagram, and this popped up a few times and really tickled my tastebuds so I knew I had to order this when I visited.

On arrival this was a big portion, and visually looked really nice and the smell mmmm my mouth started to water.

The first bit through to the last bite were just perfect, the flavours of everything and the textures really it was a perfect mouthful every time.

This is something I would 100% order again.

Side

Poppadom Nachos £5.50

This sounded interesting, as I have never had or heard of Poppadom Nachos before so I had to order and see what it was like.

On arrival this looked really interesting, and I couldnt wait to dig in and try it.

WOW this was so good, it was a modern Indian take on a classic and it worked 100%. The sauces, the salsa and poppadoms worked really well together.

You need to order this!!!

Ruby Murrays Takeaway (Tollcross, Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Ruby Murrys contacted me and offered me a free dinner, so recently I accepted.

This is what I ordered and thought 🙂

The Food

8pc Mixed Pakora

Normally I dont say this about Pakora boxes but this was nicely presented, I like the Ruby Murry paper it was on as normally its just the pakora and nothing else.

It was mixed pakora so that included Mushroom, Chicken and Vegetable and all were 100% really tasty and had a nice flavour….this was very moreish.

Main

Chicken Korma with Rice

I have ordered from Ruby Murry’s before but never went for the Korma, which is strange as Korma is one of my fav currys so tonight I did got it.

I started with the rice which was cooked perfectly, and had a really nice flavour…now to the Korma.

The Korma had a lovely sweet coconut flavour, which is exactly how I like my Korma’s and together with the rice were very very nice.

Overall :

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

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Ruby Murry’s for my Friday night dinner.

Tonights food was really good, very tasty and I will continue to order from here like I have done in the past a few times.

If your in the area do check them out and let me know what you order 🙂

Mama’s Kitchen Takeaway (Glasgow, West End) : Review

GIFTED


Mama’s Kitchen messaged me recently and asked if I would like to try one of their Indian Street Food Boxes.

I couldn’t wait for this to arrive, as they teased me with a photo and it looked it amazing and my mouth started to water.

They were kind enough to bring it to my flat, and I got a chance to speak to Mama’s Kitchen.

The girl is lovely, bubbly and very friendly…I am blessed being a blogger and meeting so many nice people and most I have met I have kept in touch with which is really nice.

Now it was time to eat

Street Food Box

Firstly the presentation was amazing, I loved how it was delivered and the layout.

How good does this look, everything has a place and its really pleasing on the eye.

It consists of the following:

Chickpea Salad

I started with this.

To begin with this looked very eye catching, the colours and presentation.

This was very nice, it had lovely flavours and I liked the mix of soft and crunchy.

Spicy Garam Masala Potatoes

I loved the presentation of the potatoes, the little boat….again they have really thought well about presentation.

I am not a big potato fan but these had a very nice flavour, and they were perfectly cooked.

I ate a lot of these 🙂

Chicken Pakora

I am a big chicken pakora fan, but depending where you go these differ from the taste, the crispiness of the batter etc etc

These were perfect! the batter just crispy, the flavour was really good and the chicken was very tender….just perfect!

I could have easily had more of these.

Spiced onions and poppadoms

What can you say about spiced onions and poppadoms? they are the perfect nibble, starter etc and these were really nice.

Lamb Mince and Pea Samosas

These were big and looked good, and smelled really good.

These had a nice little kick to them, and tasted really nice. They reminded me of Cornish pasties, if that helps give you an idea what they are like, but with a nice kick.

Tandoori Chicken Wraps

At first I thought its just a wrap, and then I took a bite!!

I took a bite and this was a game changer, the flavour was amazing!!! every bite was just yummmm so much so I had the majority of the wraps…oops!

This was my fav 🙂

Fruit Chaat

And theres more…

There is always room for a little more, and this was a nice end to tonights meal.

The mix of fruits etc plus the sauce at the bottom this was a nice ending.

Overall :

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

Firstly a big thank you to Mama’s Kitchen, the food presentation and meeting you were amazing.

The presentation is amazing, its something we spoke about for a while after we had finished the meal. The food was also really good, and my fav was that wrap….mmmm I could have easily had many more of those and the Chicken Pakora.

Everything was presented nicely, tasted amazing and I highly recomend you order from them. Just visit their instagram page and send them a message.

I have now added Mama’s Kitchen to my top spots page for takeaways!!
