I have been to the Corinthian a good few times, mostly for the Afternoon Tea which is my favourite in Glasgow. Inside has always had a lovely and relaxing atmosphere, and also the staff have been very friendly and helpful.

Last week I got an email inviting me to tonight’s event, which was to try something from the new menu….well I love my food and I like the Corinthian so I couldn’t turn it down.

I was looking forward to trying this menu, as I have never really been in here for food. Its always been Afternoon Tea, or for a few drinks so it was now time to sample the food.

On entry I was welcomed and shown to my table, if you have never been here there are effectively 3 seating areas in here. The first being the ones on the left as you go in, these are booths with a big chair. These are more for couples, and this is where I was seated tonight. The next is the middle are, which has a few group tables, and then the far right which is booths and tables again for groups.

The Food…

Starter

Potted Chicken Liver Parfait £N/A (Normally £6.95)
Pear Chutney, Pea Shoot Salad & Brioche Toast

I always like to try this at any restaurant, as its interesting how they all differ and how they present it.

This was presented very nicely, and looked very good, my first thought was maybe 1 more brioche toast would be good but lets see how I get on.

I have to say this was the best Chicken Liver Parfait I have tasted so far, it was very very smooth and full of flavour and it worked amazing with the Brioche Toast. I was correct though, there was still enough parfait in the little pot enough for one more slice.

I would have this again!!!

Main

Herb Crusted Ayrshire Pork Fillet £N/A (Normally £14.95)
Toulouse Sausage & white bean Cassoulet

I spotted 3 dishes I wanted to try, but I opted for this as it sounded nice. My second option would have been Peterhead Haddock and Chips, as it sounded very good.

When it arrived, the presentation and smell was very good so I was looking forward to seeing how this tasted.

This was very nice, and cooked just right as it was not mega chewy which is always my pet hate when it comes to dishes like this.

Dessert

Brandy Soused Strawberry Creme Brulee (V) £N/A (Normally £5.95)
Shortbread

Presentation again this was very good, and it looked very good.

I tried the shortbread first, and this was very good I love shortbread.

Moving on to the Creme Brulee, this was again perfect and very very nice. This and the shortbread for me was a perfect combination.

I would have this again!

During the meal, a live quarter was performing they were called Strings Aloud. Due to the design of this building, and due to it being strings the acoustics were amazing and the sound was very relaxing and created a very very nice atmosphere for everyone.

Overall :

I am very pleased I got tonight’s invite, as I learned that here does very nice food where are before in my mind it was more a cocktails and Afternoon Tea location.

I cant fault anything tonight, all 3 courses were very nice, the service was good and also the atmosphere was perfect.

I would like to thank the Corinthian again for my invite, I had a very enjoyable evening and will see you soon.

Lunch at Eusebi Deli (West End, Glasgow) : Review

Today was a lovely day and it had been a while since my last visit, plus Ive never been for a lunch yet (dinner and dessert only) so we headed there.

It was very busy today outside and the main inside, so we took a seat downstairs (yes they have a downstairs).

I had a look at the new menu, very bright and colourful perfect for summer.

The new menu has the same layout, so if you were used to the old one then you won’t have any issues with this. I think it has the same amount of options? I could be wrong but anyway lets get on with the review.

I only wanted a small dish today, as I was only visiting for lunch so I took a look and opted for the below item.

The Food…

Veal Meatballs Sicillian Style £7

IMG_9855.jpg

This dish is off the new summer menu at Eusebi Deli, which was only launched in July.

This is actually a starter, but I wasn’t that hungry to go for something off the mains. I decided to pick something random, and give it a try.

On arrival it looked nice, and smelled nice so I was looking forward to tasting.

This was a very interesting dish, normally meat balls are very filling and spicy. These were not spicy and very light to eat which was good since it was a starter.

As always I will go back and try more 🙂
