Chilli Flames (Halal) (Livingston) : Review

INVITE


I got invited to their preview weekend to come and try some of their dishes, and I couldn’t wait as I had a wee peek at the menu and what I saw all sounded and looked really good.⠀

About

With over 12 locations throughout the UK in cities like Leicester, Derby, Cardiff, Bolton and Stirling, Chilli Flames are delighted to announce their newest location in the town of Livingston. Chili Flames prides itself on serving freshly prepared flame-grilled peri peri chicken, mouthwatering burgers and indulgent wraps.

Chilli Flames are all about flavour! We have worked hard to create a secret range of marinades and sauces that cover all of our chicken. Our chicken is always fresh and never frozen. That is why we believe that we serve the tastiest and freshest grilled chicken to our customers.

First Impressions

On entering the place has a great look and colour scheme, for me, it felt very warm funky and modern and I was very relaxed the whole time I was there.

I was told they would get a few things ready so I could sample a few dishes, which was great as that meant I get to show you the dishes and tell you my thoughts plus you get to see what they do 🙂

The Food

LOADED NACHOS

CRISPY NACHOS WITH CHICKEN, SALSA, SOUR CREAM, JALAPEÑO, AND TOPPED WITH CHEESE.

On arrival these instantly caught my eye, and my mouth started to water.

Now it was time to dig in.

WOW the flavours were amazing, the chicken was mega tender, and every mouthful was packed with flavour and I can say this was finished.

Hummous & Funky Naan Sticks

At first I wondered what these sticks were, but they are like a squashed naan which was 100% perfect to eat the hummous.

The hummous was really nice, and also had a wee sauce on top which added to the flavour.

Very addictive!!!

Showcase Cinemas UK (Paisley) – Home Alone

GIFTED


The guys over at Showcase Cinema asked me to come along back to the cinema and see Home Alone, which is the first Christmas movie to be shown this year.

We all need a good Christmas movie to cheer us up, as its been a terrible year for everyone in some way or another so I said yes and added to my calendar.

Now most of us here have seen Home Alone, either from childhood or you may have shown your own kids.

I had not seen this film in ages, so I was very excited to see it again and in the cinema.⠀

Time for the film

On arrival, I popped on my face-mask, got my ticket and sat down to watch the film. Everyone was spaced out, and the seats just like last time were mega comfy.

There were so many parts to this film I forgot happened, and I got lost in the whole experience and enjoyed it from start to finish.

The whole experience of going back to the cinema was great, I have really missed it and its is and always will be the best way to see movies.⠀

A BIG thanks to ShowCase for my invite, and I highly recommend you book something and take a visit to your cinema or see what I saw and book Home Alone and get into the Christmas mood 🙂

BURGUR Grill – (Halal) (Pollokshields, Glasgow) : Review

Invited

V: 16th March 2020

** This review was typed up before lock down! Please check with the restaurant if it is open or doing home delivery, and if they are check them out! **


The guys over at BurgurGrill Invited me, to their official launch night for BurgurGrill.

Looking Around

Inside has a very cool rustic look, and at the same time a very relaxing feel to it. I really liked the design inside, as I felt it really suited a burger restaurant.

The Food

I was given the menu and took a seat, and had a look.

Since this was a burger restaurant I asked the guys here what they would recommend, firstly was the beef burger and secondly was the butter chicken burger. Both of these options sounded really good, but I had to go with beef.

Main Course(s) :

Beef Burger : £N/A tonight (Normally £4.50 weekdays, £5.00 weekends)

served on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, gherkin, mayo, cheese & fried onion

This was a nice looking burger, and it smelled really good to so it was time to take a bite and see how it tasted.

This was a really nice burger, the beef was very tender and a really nice flavour and worked as a whole bite.

BurgurGrill is 100% Halal, and the beef is from their family run butchers so they can trace its steps all the way back which is really good!

Sweet Potato Fries : £N/A tonight (Normally £2.50)

I have really started to enjoy Sweet Potato Fries more then normal fries, but it depends where you go as some can be just so so or very nice…..so I had to see how they did them here.

WOW!!!! ok I have to say these are the nicest sweet potato fries I have had!!! the flavour was good, they were just crispy enough and mmmm perfect!!!!

BBQ Chicken Wings : £N/A tonight (Normally £5.00 for 6 wings)

Since it was the launch night they were giving free wings with every order, lucky I had a small lunch with all this food.

These were very good, I loved the sauce it had just a slight kick and packed a lot of flavour.

These were very nice, the cheese was tasty and the salsa and as a whole very very good.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at BurgurGrill for tonights invite, and it was lovely meeting you again and your father 🙂

Tonights food was very good, I cant fault it in anyway. I enjoyed the burger, fries, wings and nachos and I am going to be going back again to try more food.

As I said the food here is 100% Halal, so if this is something that you look out for then take a visit here.
