The Pepper Society (Pop-Up) (Glasgow) : Review


@thepeppersociety on Instagram messaged me and asked if I would like to try some tacos at home, as they are a new pop up.

I had a wee look at their Instagram and the tacos looked really yummy!

WHat I got

This is what I got, look at all those ingredient’s for the tacos 🙂

I decided to heat the tortilla up a little, along with the main ingredients rather than a cold tortilla which is ok but warm is always much nicer.

The Tacos

Mole con Nopales : Mexican cactus sautéed with mushrooms and mole.

Let me start by saying sorry about the photos, the Mole was very runny so I couldn’t take a pic of me holding it up.

I have never heard of Mole till tonight, so this would be interesting to try.

Now this was an interesting flavour, for me its a little hard to describe as its once you have to taste…closest I could say is a very deep mushroom flavour.

My dad even tried one and he really enjoyed it to.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Barbacoa : Slow cooked Ox cheek and short ribs

So this was slow roasted ox cheek and short ribs wrapped in banana leaves till extra tender. Topped with diced fresh onions, coriander and salsa verde.

Now this is how I wanted my first taco to look, but this one I could easily hold.

This was really nice, each bite I could taste everything and with a wee squeeze of the lime it just add that extra mmm

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

Firstly a big thanks to @thepeppersociety for letting me try her tacos and making my Friday evening that much better.

I really enjoyed tonights tacos, the flavours were really good and I even got to try something that I have never tried before “Mole” whats was very interesting.

DryGate Brewery NEW Bar Food and Cocktail Menu (Glasgow) : Review


V: 6th March 2020

The guys over at DryGate Brewery, invited me over to the launch night of their new bar Food and Cocktail menu.

Looking Around

I have been to Drygate many times, with friends or with the craft beer tasting tours so I know it very well.

The event tonight was upstairs, the new menu for upstairs only.

The Food

I didnt know what was in store for me tonight, but I was mega looking forward to it.

I was told that a sampler would be brought round to me, and I could select 2 cocktails to try which was great.


  • Pizza By The Slice
  • Cauliflower Wings (VG)
  • Tacos : Crisp Fried Haddock
  • House Made Nachos (V)

All of these samples were very nice, and full of flavour, my favourite from this selection was the Cauliflower Wings and I could have easily had more.

The fish taco was nice, but the taco broke up for me very easily so I couldn’t grab and eat, I had to use my knife and fork.

And there was more..

This was Drygates Vegan Curry was served in a tiffin tray with bread, rice and dips.

Presentation wise I really liked this, and as you can see its very instagramable… for the taste..

This was a VERY good curry, and extremely moreish.

If you like currys you need to try this, and I promise you you wont regret it.

Cocktails :

Orinoco Russian : Vodka, Coffee Liqueur, Orinoco Syrup, Milk and Cream Chocolate


Pineapple Rum Old Fashioned : Plantation Pineapple Rum, Sugar and Orange Bitters

Both these cocktails were very good, but my fav and one I would definitely have again is the Orinoco Russian mmmmm so good 🙂

Visit Overall :

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

Firstly a big thanks to DryGate for my invite, I really had a great time and good food and cocktails.
