The Picture House (Rutherglen, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

The guys at the Picture House asked if I would like to come and take a visit, and support my local.

I have only visited here maybe max twice in the past, so I was looking forward to heading back and checking it out.

The Food

I knew I would like to try a starter and a main, and if I had room a little dessert.

I placed my order and a few mins later I was told they didn’t have a few things, as they were very busy which is great to hear….but it made my decision harder.

After a few mins later I choose my alternatives.

Starter

Fish Tacos
Two charred tortillas stuffed with a freshly hand-battered fish goujon, pico de gallo, Frank’s RedHot® sauce, soured cream and shredded lettuce

Visually when this arrived on the table it looked really good, and I wasn’t expecting two….yes I know it said that in the description but I just glanced and choose it by its title.

I grabbed one and took a big bite…

The first thing that came to mind was the tomatoes needed to be under the lettuce to hold them in place, or to use half the amount as they just kept falling.

Apart from that this tasted really good!!! The flavours as a whole were good, the fish was cooked perfectly and the batter had a lovely crunch to it.

My Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Main Course

Korean Fried Chicken Burger
Freshly hand-battered mango & lime chicken thighs tossed in Korean BBQ sauce served with mango & chilli sauce

I wanted a burger tonight, but I felt like going for a chicken burger and this is what grabbed my attention.

WOW this was a big burger…

I started with the chips and these tasted great just as they are, they didnt need any salt or anything extra. I then dripped one in the dip and WOW this was such a great tasting dip.

I then took a BIG bite of the burger and again WOW the flavour was so so good!

The chicken was nice and tender, and packed with flavour and as a whole bite it was a REALLY nice burger. I then added some of the dip and it just took it to the next level, so so good!

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at the Picture House for my invite.

I was very happy with tonight, I felt very relaxed from the moment I arrived to when I left.

To be honest I was very pleasantly surprised at how good the food was tonight, as last time it was just OK but tonight REALLY very tasty.

If your in the area then do check it out, and if you stay local why not support your local and visit….I promise you that you will have a very tasty meal.

Tonight I was walking around this area of the West End, and I decided to pop in here and have a beer and a burger.

Looking Around

On entering it instantly hits you that this is more a pub/bar, but they do have a section through the back where you have booths to eat.

Since I am getting into the craft beer scene, I spotted a few names I recognised so I was going to try a beer I’ve not had before.

As I was shown to my table I had a look at some of the food everyone else was having, and ohhhh they also do really nice looking Hot Dogs.

Main

Southern Fire Burd £10.95

IMG_7562
Crispy chicken, bacon, cheese & buffalo sauce

On arrival, this looked very good, and a good sized portion.

First I tried the chips…

These were nice and fresh and had a good taste but a little salt was needed but that’s more a personal preference.

Now the burger…

mmm, the chicken was nice and crispy but had a tender centre, the sauce and cheese and bacon just added to the flavour.

This was a nice chicken burger!!

Tonight I was here to attend an event, but I arrived a little early and was very hungry so I thought let’s have a little snack.

This was my first time in this Cafe, and looking around it had a nice look and tonight it had a nice atmosphere.

The Food…

Haggis Bonbons £6.50
With Johnnie Walker Gold label Whiskey Sour Dressing

This was just a little snack as I didn’t want to fill myself up too much, plus I had a very big lunch.

On arrival, this looked nice and also smelled nice and a perfect size for a starter or snack.

This was very nice, the coating was just crispy and no more and the flavours were really good. I could have easily had more, but it was just a snack.

Overall

Overall from my short experience before the event, it was nice and relaxing and the food I had tonight was nice.

Here is a place I would visit again, but this part of the West End I don’t tend to visit too much but if I do I will stop in again and check out the food and drinks.
