The Lee Burn (East Kilbride) : Review

V: 14th August 2020


Tonight we visited the Lee Burn as my grandparents wanted to take us out for a meal.

I have been here before but it was ages ago.

The Food

As I said it was ages ago when I was last here, so I couldn’t remember what I had or how good or bad it was.

I recently lost my appetite so I wasn’t too hungry tonight, so I skipped my starter and just went for my main meal.

I didn’t know what to order, so I took a chance on a burger and just randomly selected one.

The Burger

Smothered Chicken Burger £11.99

Golden-fried breaded butter chicken topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, and Brewdog punk IPA BBQ sauce.

Presentation was nice, and I didnt expect as many chips.

The chips were very nice, as I always love skinny fries and they didnt need any salt.

The burger had a really nice flavour, but the cheese seemed to have dried up which was a-shame. It needed some cheese to take away the full crisp bite, or some sauce but overall it was very tasty and filling.

Tonight was a nice night with my parents and grandparents.

The atmosphere was good, and we all enjoyed out meals.

It was nice to try somewhere different and also just randomly pick something from the menu.

I had to go back to Dennistoun Bar-B-Que as I LOVED the burger I had on my first visit, so this time I went back with my best friend Chris for some burgers woohoo

The Food…

Side

Seasoned Fries : £2.85 (V)

I had these on my first visit and loved them so I had to get them again this time round.

These were seasoned and had a big kick to them tonight, a lot more than my first visit. Don’t get me wrong they were nice, but for me I preferred the slight kick from my first visit.

Manjaros (Glasgow, Springfield Quay) : Review

V: 15th February 2019


** 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! **

I have followed Manjaros for a while now on Instagram, and tonight it was time to finally check them out.

Looking Around

Inside is very nice, it has a nice relaxing feel and look. The one thing inside that stood out for me was the lights, they are super funky.

The Food

I have never been here but have seen their photos on their instagram page, so I couldn’t wait to check them out.

Appetiser

Toasted Nachos £3.50

Nachos topped with jalapenos with melted mozzarella cheese and salsa.

I had to have a starter and the Nachos stood out for me.

On arrival this looked very nice, so it was time to dig in.

This was very nice, and a good sized starter lucky I shared this with my fiancee as the main portion was big.

As I said it was a nice starter, but if it was layered better this would have been perfect.

Main Course :

There was so many dishes I wanted to try, so I opted for something completely different to what I would normally order.

Chrispy Chicken Wrap £7.95

Boneless southern fried crispy chicken served with iceberg lettuce and cool mayo.

This looked very tasty on arrival and after the quick picture I dug in.

The wrap was very good, and the flavour was very nice.

The chips were a different story…

So this is a big personal preference, there was nothing wrong with the chips but I 1000% prefer skinny chips….yip am that person but yeah they were nice but skinny chips with this would have been perfect.

There was a sauce on the table that I fell in love with, and it worked AMAZING with this dish.

Looking around I saw that all the dishes here were a great portion size, and I have to completely agree with that.

The food here was very good, the only issues were just a personal preference.

I also tried some Chicken Parmesan from my fiancee as it was too big a portion for her and WOW this was really good!!!

And i LOVED!!!! that sauce!!!

I will definitely be going back as I really enjoyed their food.
