Paratha Box Order (Aikenhead Road, Glasgow) : Review

While sitting at work the optician said to me have I heard of Paratha Box? I had never heard of them so I brought up the menu and took a look.

Everything sounded so good, and they also did Lassi.

After talking about them and looking at the menu we decided lets get something from them for lunch.

The Order

This was what I got.

Chicken Tikka Paratha Roll £6.00
They say it was invented in Glasgow. The chicken tikka paratha was born here at paratha box, the perfect breakfast, lunch and evening meal! Served in a roll.

This was huge and had a good weight to it, this was going to be a good lunch.

I unwrapped it and took a big big bite…

This was completely packed with flavour!!! this was so so good!!! Everything worked really well and the chicken was really nice and tender.

I am so glad I was introduced to Paratha Box as I cant wait to try more from them.

Extremely filling and really good its getting a SOLID 5/5

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Mango Lassi £2.50
330ML of a heavenly taste, Sweet Lassi – freshly made from mango pulp mixed with a blend of yoghurt. Makes a perfect drink for a hot summers day or with any paratha …

Mango Lassi is always a must they are just so good and super addictive.

If you have never had one think of a sweet mango smoothie.

I have found Mango Lassi’s to be hit or miss depending where you go, they are either perfect and nice flavours and sweet or not sweet and just ok.

This one was perfect and sweet enough for me, as I have a very sweet tooth so I enjoyed every sip.

I could have easily had another.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

I was so full after my lunch, but it was worth it.

I loved everything! flavours of both the Lassi and the Paratha was perfect. I cant wait to try more from their menu.

If you have never heard of them, or tried them please do give them a wee order and let me know what you think…but I am sure you will enjoy it 🙂

V: 26th October 2018.    W: dockyardsocial.com


While I was at work I got an email in my inbox, and it was an invite to come to a place called the Dockyard Social for a blogger event. The Dockyard is a place I had heard the name a few times, but to be honest not really much about it.

The Dockyard was on my list to visit, so I kindly accepted the invite and added it to my calendar.

After work, I made my way over to the Dockyard…

First Impressions :

When my taxi arrived outside I was thinking to myself “is this the right place”, it looked like a big warehouse….so this was interesting.

On entering the building wow it was massive and very cool inside.

Tonight apart from the blogger event, there was a Halloween event happening so that’s why it has all the funky spooky items everywhere.

We were given a welcome cocktail which was very nice, one was Melon (not a fan) and the other looked interesting as it had a syringe….yup that’s the one I went for.

While enjoying my cocktail, I took a walk around seeing what food stalls were here.

These food stalls are always here, and what a variety you get to pick from. You have so many options, you have to have a little something from a few. I am not sure if they are always here, or if the vendors change to give you constant variety.

Plus there was a few more, but it was very busy and I didn’t get a chance to take photos.

It was now time to have something to eat, as I was very hungry so this was going to be a tough choice as there was so many nice items to pick from today.

The Food..

Tonight I opted to get two items, one from one stand and one from another.

NomNam : Korean Fried Chicken Wings £5

Well, these looked and smelled very nice, now it was time to taste.

WOW, these were very good….and VERY messy but worth every bite and mess all over my fingers and mouth. The flavour was really good and very moreish.

Value for money was REALLY good, and if you visit Dockyard do try these.

Lit : Salt & Szechuan Pepper Chicken Wrap £5

IMG_3267.jpg

This was on my list to try all night, as it sounded so good.

Firstly all this for £5 wow really good, and the smell was amazing.

Every bite of this was really good, the flavour of the chicken with everything else was perfect.

Cocktails…

I noticed that they did cocktails, and all of them sounded very good

Overall

This is a very cool place, and if you follow them on their Dockyard Social Facebook Page you will see they do many fun events.

I will definitely be going back as it was a very good evening, and the atmosphere was really fun.

Street food is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to eat out in Glasgow and having Dockyard on the scene just makes it even easier to have your Street Food fix.

Please do take a visit here to one of the event, its a very cool place with really good street food.

See you guys soon and thanks again 🙂
