Fratelli’s (Cambuslang, Glasgow) takeaway via FoodHub : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at FoodHub gifted me with a wee voucher to order a meal and again check out their app.

The app is just like your other takeaway ordering apps, see my other review here

I wanted to try another place I have not used for a while, so I opted for Italian tonight.

The Food

I have ordered a takeaway from here a good few years ago, and enjoyed it at that point and as I said I felt like an Italian tonight so thought would check them out again.

Drink

187ml Pinot Grigio White £3.25

I am not a big wine drinker, it is an area I would like to learn more about so I cant go into loads of details about this.

For me this was very nice, light and worked perfect with my meal tonight.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Main Course :

Spaghetti Carbonara £7.80

Carbonara can be done two ways, the good way and the bad way with cream….this I was very happy to see was done the good way.

This was really good! the flavour and everything about it was really nice.

It was a massive portion, as I ate 2/3’s of the portion as it was very filling.

I would have this again.

Desert :

Biscoff Cheesecake £4.95

My eyes are always bigger than my belly….as the saying goes….and I had to check out this cake as Biscoff anything is ALWAYS really nice.

So after my Carbonara I waited a while till I wasnt feeling as full, and started to eat this.

This was really nice, I liked the flavour and texture.

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 food.

Firstly a big thanks to FoodHub again, the service from the app just like the last few times has been perfect!

Service and food from Fratelli’s was really good, I was very impressed with the quality and the portion size.

I have no issued recommending either FoodHub App (IOS & Android) and Fratelli’s.

Coulotte Steakhouse Take Away (Cambuslang, Glasgow) : Review

Order Date : 6th November 2020


Before this place opened their social media followed me, which alerted me to them opening. Since then I have kept watch to what they offer, and I did aim to take a visit…but this year has not really been the best to visit restaurants, unfortunately.

My Order

I decided to go for a burger tonight….

The Coulotter Burger £12.95

Burger topped with 5oz Coulotte steak, garlic fried onions, smoked cheese sauce, Parmesan and poppy seed crisp, burger sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle

Yup all that and as you can see it was a MASSIVE burger and I did try and eat it with my hands but it won so I had to cut it up and eat it that way.

The flavour of the garlic onions, smoked cheese sauce was amazing!!!! this really made this burger mega tasty.

Each bit was very nice, and that sauce etc really did make this a very tasty burger.

If you do try to eat this burger with your hands, make sure you have many napkins as you will need it as its a messy one.

Chilli Salt ‘N’ Pepper Chips (v) £2.75

Along with the big burger which you will have seen from above, I got a side of chips.⠀

For me thick chips are meh, skinny fries are 100% better but I would give these a go and see what they were like.

These were actually ok, they had a nice crispness to them and the flavour was nice.

These worked really well with the flavour of the burger.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Overall :

Overall I had a really nice take away, the burger was good the fries were good and I cant really fault them.

When I order again I think I would like to try their chicken burgers, and see how they are so keep watching for when I do another order from here.

Also once I have time and things go back to normal, I will take a wee visit inside to see what its like.

Child Friendly: Yes (well behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


I have walked past this place a few times and thought the food looked very nice, so today I took a visit.

On entering we were instantly greeted and asked if it was for take away or sit in, and then shown to a table.

The Food…

Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs £4.80

IMG_3774.jpg

On arrival this looked very nice, I could see they cut up the ribs rather than bring then whole (maybe to speed up the cooking time).

These were very nice, and had a nice flavour.

If you do order these just be careful as there are bones, just because they are smaller pieces doesn’t mean they are boneless bits.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4

Sweet and Sour Chicken Hong Kong Style £6.50

IMG_3777.jpg

This is one of my favourite dishes so I had to try it here and see how it was.

On arrival it looked nice, but this is where it stopped.

The sauce was very runny and had a slight vinegar taste to it, normally when its been like this its the cheaper way to make it so maybe thats whats happened tonight…or vinegar is used to thin down sauce to make it go further….

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2
Presentation : 4

Overall

This place is a take away trying to be a sit in cafe/restaurant at the same time.

You order at the desk, get the cutlery yourself and all the food just comes at once even though its split in to starters and mains. Since it all came at once and I was at a table for two, the table was too busy and made it difficult to actually enjoy and eat.

By the time I finished my starter my Sweet and Sour chicken was a little cold, plus it wasn’t that good (i’ve had much better).

Personally I don’t know if I would go back, the starter was nice the main not so much….I will need to think on this one.
