I heard about this place opening ages ago, but then it went out of my mind completely.

Recently one of my friends brought one of Barfi’s boxes for me to try with them so I couldn’t wait as I love Indian sweets….well I love sweets period I have a sweet tooth 🙂

About

This shop has recently opened and from what I have heard is mega popular, and I can see and taste why but I will get to that.

They do many different types of Indian sweets but today I was trying Barfi.

For those of you who don’t know what this is, it is very similar to toffee but not as chewy and softer.

The Barfi…

This was today’s box…and when I say today I mean I will be getting more to try 🙂

  • Millionaires
  • New York Cheesecake
  • Oreo
  • Vimto
  • Banoffee
  • Celebration Cake

Yup, there was one missing but this was eaten before I took the photo.

So let’s do a wee breakdown on flavours :

Millionaires

Firstly the smell was ok and close to what it was trying to be, the taste hmm not that close which is a shame as it could have been really good.

New York Cheesecake

Firstly the smell was spot on, and the flavour was very close so I was impressed with this one.

Oreo

The smell was just ok, and the taste again so so…this was not that good which is a shame as most things that have Oreos are really good.

Vimto

This had a strong smell, and unless you’re a Vimto fan you won’t like the taste but if you are then this one is for you.

Banoffee

The smell of this was very good, and the taste was the best out of the whole box. This one was my fav!

Celebration Cake

The smell was very close to a Birthday cake, and the taste was ok you could just taste the cake favour as it was very subtle.

Overall

Overall I really liked trying the different flavours, and there are still many more to try.

My favourites were the Banoffee and the New York Cheesecake.

If you have never tried Barfi then take a visit to this place and order a box to sample how it tastes but I do recommend you try the original then these flavours.

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

IMG_2430

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.

The past few times I have been in Bar Soba, it was for cocktails and not for food.

It was time to take a visit, and try some food as its always looked good when ive been in.

On arrival it was a very very busy day, so inside and outside was mega busy. We were seated at the back, to the side.

This was not a great position to sit anyone, it was near stairs and the sections toilet so people and waiters were constantly passing behind me….plus the lighting a little dull.

The Food…

Starter

Cheeseburger Spring Rolls £5.00
Soba burger mayo

The description sounded interesting, and also on arrival it looked interesting.

This was nice, wasnt amazing but it was nice. It had a slight kick to it, and the sauce was very nice.

I would order this again.

Main Course

Bangkok Burger £10.00
Chargrilled beef patty flavoured with Thai spices, with sliced chedder, and Soba mayo.

This also had a little kick to it, and the burger was perfecly cooked.

The flavours were nice, it wasnt the best burger in Glasgow but it was a good one.

Overall

Overall it was ok value for money, but where I was seated really killed the mood tonight for me.

Will I go back? maybe but I would probably try sit in a different location and see if that helps.
