The Woodside Place Cafe (West End, Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


It was nice being back in the West End, and tonight I was taking a visit to the Woodside Place Cafe as I was invited to come and get a wee delivery.

Venue

You go downstairs and in to the cafe, which has a really nice sitting area to eat which you can see from the photos.

On your left as you enter is where you can place your order.

This cafe had a really nice atmosphere to it, and looked very nice inside and I felt very relaxed when I was inside.

Vietnamese Caramel Glazed Pork Bun with sweet Potato Fries

Firstly how good does this look? And yes it smelled as good as it looked. 

This was a big burger, that was packed with flavour and every bite was just amazing. It was a juicy burger too, so you WILL need some napkins but aren’t all great burgers messy? Yup!

It was very filling and as I said had loads of flavour. ⠀

As you can see from the above photo, you get a good portion of fries.

These were really nice, they had a slight crispness to them and nice flavour…..and worked perfectly with the burger.⠀

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 burger and fries.

Firstly a big thanks to the Woodside Place Cafe for the burger.

This was a really nice, full of flavour and very filling burger and the side of sweet potato fries just added to that.

If your in the area or near, give the guys a call and place an order as I am sure you will really enjoy your meal as much as I did.

BURGUR Grill – (Halal) (Pollokshields, Glasgow) : Review

Invited

V: 16th March 2020

** 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! **


The guys over at BurgurGrill Invited me, to their official launch night for BurgurGrill.

Looking Around

Inside has a very cool rustic look, and at the same time a very relaxing feel to it. I really liked the design inside, as I felt it really suited a burger restaurant.

The Food

I was given the menu and took a seat, and had a look.

Since this was a burger restaurant I asked the guys here what they would recommend, firstly was the beef burger and secondly was the butter chicken burger. Both of these options sounded really good, but I had to go with beef.

Main Course(s) :

Beef Burger : £N/A tonight (Normally £4.50 weekdays, £5.00 weekends)

served on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, gherkin, mayo, cheese & fried onion

This was a nice looking burger, and it smelled really good to so it was time to take a bite and see how it tasted.

This was a really nice burger, the beef was very tender and a really nice flavour and worked as a whole bite.

BurgurGrill is 100% Halal, and the beef is from their family run butchers so they can trace its steps all the way back which is really good!

Sweet Potato Fries : £N/A tonight (Normally £2.50)

I have really started to enjoy Sweet Potato Fries more then normal fries, but it depends where you go as some can be just so so or very nice…..so I had to see how they did them here.

WOW!!!! ok I have to say these are the nicest sweet potato fries I have had!!! the flavour was good, they were just crispy enough and mmmm perfect!!!!

BBQ Chicken Wings : £N/A tonight (Normally £5.00 for 6 wings)

Since it was the launch night they were giving free wings with every order, lucky I had a small lunch with all this food.

These were very good, I loved the sauce it had just a slight kick and packed a lot of flavour.

These were very nice, the cheese was tasty and the salsa and as a whole very very good.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at BurgurGrill for tonights invite, and it was lovely meeting you again and your father 🙂

Tonights food was very good, I cant fault it in anyway. I enjoyed the burger, fries, wings and nachos and I am going to be going back again to try more food.

As I said the food here is 100% Halal, so if this is something that you look out for then take a visit here.

Firstly the burger didnt come with fries, so you still need to order them as a side.

On arrival this looked good, and the blue cheese smell mmmmmm

If you dont like messy burgers then this one isnt for you, but if you dont care give this a try.
