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 🙂

DryGate Brewery NEW Bar Food and Cocktail Menu (Glasgow) : Review

Invited

V: 6th March 2020


The guys over at DryGate Brewery, invited me over to the launch night of their new bar Food and Cocktail menu.

Looking Around

I have been to Drygate many times, with friends or with the craft beer tasting tours so I know it very well.

The event tonight was upstairs, the new menu for upstairs only.

The Food

I didnt know what was in store for me tonight, but I was mega looking forward to it.

I was told that a sampler would be brought round to me, and I could select 2 cocktails to try which was great.

Sampler

  • Pizza By The Slice
  • Cauliflower Wings (VG)
  • Tacos : Crisp Fried Haddock
  • House Made Nachos (V)

All of these samples were very nice, and full of flavour, my favourite from this selection was the Cauliflower Wings and I could have easily had more.

The fish taco was nice, but the taco broke up for me very easily so I couldn’t grab and eat, I had to use my knife and fork.

And there was more..

This was Drygates Vegan Curry was served in a tiffin tray with bread, rice and dips.

Presentation wise I really liked this, and as you can see its very instagramable…..now for the taste..

This was a VERY good curry, and extremely moreish.

If you like currys you need to try this, and I promise you you wont regret it.

Cocktails :

Orinoco Russian : Vodka, Coffee Liqueur, Orinoco Syrup, Milk and Cream Chocolate

and

Pineapple Rum Old Fashioned : Plantation Pineapple Rum, Sugar and Orange Bitters

Both these cocktails were very good, but my fav and one I would definitely have again is the Orinoco Russian mmmmm so good 🙂

Visit Overall :

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

Firstly a big thanks to DryGate for my invite, I really had a great time and good food and cocktails.

I really loved the Cauliflower Wings and the Drygate Vegan curry, these were my top two dishes from tonight.

Overall I can recommend you visit and try the new menu and the cocktails, as I really enjoyed what I had. Thanks again guys 🙂

See you soon

Harvester (Glasgow): Review

Harvester
Springfield Quay
Glasgow G5 8NP

V: 3rd June 2019. T: 0141 418 0810. W: www.harvester.co.uk


Here is a place I don’t tend to visit very often, the main reason being I am either never near a Harvester or I tend to find the service poor.

Tonight I was seeing Alladin and decided to take a visit.

The Food…

I wanted to try a few dishes so I opted for the 2 Course Meal Deal which cost £12.99, here is what I ordered.

Main Course

Nachos

IMG_0632.jpg

For a starter, this looked good and a nice portion size…

After a few bites it was just OK, for me it needed more cheese. If they layered this better it could be really good but they didn’t so was just ok.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3
Value for Money : 3

Starter

The Beyond Bean Burger

IMG_0633.jpg

Yes a bean burger shocker, and guess what I didnt really like the flavour.

Adding some sauce to the burger helped, as it gave it better flavour but hmmm not for me.

Presentation : 4
Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3
Value for Money : 4

Overall

Overall it was just a ok experience, the only good part was the staff as they were very friendly and helpful tonight.

For me I dont know if I would go back in a hurry but hey I tried it and tried something new which is always good.
