Barfia (Pollokshields, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

Unit 3
60 Forth Street
Glasgow, G41 2SS

As you know I have a sweet tooth for all sweets, including Indian sweets and Barfi is one of them more so from Barfia as they do flavoured one that taste soo good.

With lockdown and things happening in my life I was unable to get my Barfi fix, and now I have popped in and treated myself to a mixed selection box.

The Box £20

I loved my last visits to Barfia and loved the Barfi, so I was looking forward to this amazing mix.

I tried making Barfi which you can see in my recipes page, but it wasn’t as fluffy as the real thing closer to a toffee texture, so having the real deal was going to be great.

I opted for the box as I was getting one box as a gift for a friend, and it looked really nice I also opted for the box for myself as I love nice presentation.

I wont describe every flavour but here were the ones that stood out for me….even though I finished the whole box 🙂

  • Coconut
  • Millionaires
  • Mint
  • Rainbow Unicorn (this was amazing!!!!)
  • Candyfloss

The above are my new favourites and I can’t wait to get them again, especially the Rainbow Unicorn which was very very very nice!!

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall

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

All I can say is Yum! Yum! Yum! I think that sums up my thoughts on the Barfi.

If you have never tried Barfi then take a visit to this place and order a box to sample how it tastes.

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

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.

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

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.
