German Donner Kebab Boss Box (Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


Last week the guys over at German Doner Kebab (Glasgow), sent me over their Boss Box to try before the main launch.

I had seen them do some promo for this and I was very intrigued so I said yes and arranged the delivery.

I ordered this via Deliveroo app on my iPhone, but the app is also available on the android store.

GDK Boss Box

WOOHOO, the long-awaited BOSS BOX is out NOW. ⁣⠀

The Boss Box Options – A choice of original German Doner Kebab, KCal Kebab, Durum or Lahmacun Wrap served with Doner Spring Rolls OR Chilli Cheese Bites, a side of fries, signature sauces and beverage. ⁣⠀

The guys over at German Doner Kebab GBK were kind enough to gift me this meal the day before the Boss Box launch day.

I couldn’t wait to get it as GDK get a great name for their kebabs, and I was planning on visiting their for the first time then lockdown happened.

My fiancee and I were mega hungry, so we paid for an extra box.⠀

My Box

When ordering this box via Deliveroo, you get to customise it to your liking.

As you can see from the above photo, everything has a specific compartment in the box which is really nice.

For me I chose the following options :

  • Original German Doner Kebab (Mix contents, melted cheese sauce)⠀
  • Chicken Doner Roll⁣⠀
  • Curry Fries⁣⠀
  • Folkington Mango Juice⠀

Order placed, and waited for it to arrive.

The Food

I started with the spring rolls, and they had the perfect crunch and taste for me. I then tried them with the dips, and again they worked perfect with them.

The Original German Doner Kebab was soo good! every bite for me was really good!. I would definitely have this again.

The fries I ordered curry fries, which basically were normal fries with a curry powder dusted over them….for me this was a little bit of a disappointment. I don’t know what I expected but these were just ok.

Overall :

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

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at GDK for gifting me the boss box, and compliments to the chefs.

I really enjoyed this from start to finish, and its really good value for money. I was so happy to see that everything was packed so well! The worst thing is when you receive your order and find your food has spilled all over the place… not the case here! nice one guys!!!

I will be ordering this again, and trying a few other dishes from them either at home or when lockdown end.

Guys check it out and let me know what you think.

Patisserie Françoise (West End, Glasgow) : Review

V: 18th January 2020


I have walked past Cafe Francoise many times, and its always very busy. I think the last time I was in here, was a good few years ago? (possibly less) and I wanted to come back and try something different.

Today I was talking a walk about the West End, and popped into Cafe Francoise to have some lunch.

The Food

I looked at the menu and a good amount of dishes caught my eye, but it was lunch so I had to be good and just select one item.

Lunch

Croque Monsieur £5.95

I have not had Croque Monsieur for ages, so I thought lets have it again and see how here does it.

Ham, cheese and béchamel

On arrival this smelled and looked very good, my mouth was starting to water.

Ohh this was very good, the flavours were just perfect and every bite was packed with flavour.

I really enjoyed every mouthful of this and would have it again!

Visit Overall :

I did have to wait about 20mins for a seat, but to be honest it was worth it.

The atmosphere, and the food was very good.

I spotted they had a nice selection of cakes, so I would try one next time.

If you haven’t visited here I would give it a visit.

River House (Stirling, Scotland) : Review

V: 12th January 2020


I decided to try somewhere new today and came across this place.

Looking Around

Driving up it looks so beautiful, I don’t know if this is still some Christmas decorations or these illuminated trees will be there all the time but wow look how amazing this looked.

Heading inside again the wow factor continued, this places was so nice inside and the atmosphere instantly was very relaxing.

Appetiser

Breaded Haggis Cake £6.95

Champit potatoes, turnip purée, crisp leek, whisky mustard sauce

I was going to order my go to starter then decided nah, lets order something different and this dish jumped out at me.

Visually this looked really nice on arrival, and it was a good portion size as a starter.

Taste time…

This was very good, the haggis has the consistency of a burger and everything together wow the flavours were just amazing.

Main Course :

Simon Howie Prime Steak Burger £12.95

Milk bun, traditional burger sauce, fries, onion ring.

Added extras : Cheddar & bacon £1.50 each

Wow this was a big portion, and the smell was amazing…time to dig in.

I am not an onion ring fan, so I left this.

The burger as a whole was very good, it was very thick and the flavours plus my little extras made it very tasty.

For me it could have used a little more sauce, but thats a personal preference.

Visit Overall :

Firstly I am very impressed with how this place look outside and inside, and how relaxed I felt inside. The menu had many options, so you should find something that tickles your tastebuds.

I really enjoyed tonights meal, and will return soon.
