I had heard a few weeks back that a change was coming to Nam Tuk, and it was with regards to the menu. Some dishes added and some dropped, but I didn’t know what ones…

I know I have been here loads recently but the food is very good, so when I heard this I was like ohhh noooo so I had to take a visit and sample some dishes…plus this is where I will be filming my next Blogger Meets Blogger YouTube Episode….so time to do some research.

The Food…

Starter

Mixed Seafood and Chive Dumplings £6.95

This is a new dish on the menu, and I have had dumplings from a few places near Nam Tuk and thought just meh….so I had to try these to compare.

Instantly after the first bite, it was an explosion of flavour and even with the sauce still amazing.

For me this is the place to go for Dumplings if you are in the West End of Glasgow.

Salt & Chilli Chips £2.95

I love Salt and Chilli Chips and have only found one Chinese that does them really good, so I thought lets see what here is like.

These are just as good as that Chinese, and EXTREMELY moreish!!!!

I know it says chilli but its not got a massive kick which is perfect for me, so please dont be put off by the name if you dont tend to go for anything chilli.

These are now as MUST order for me along with the Yam Yam Wings.

Traditional Chicken Curry £9.50

I had not had a chicken curry for a long long time, normally its a Korma or a special curry so a traditional one sounded good.

This hit the spot! YUM sums it right up!!

Overall

Overall I was a little nervous when I heard here was changing the menu, but tonight put my mind at ease!.

I will be back as I visit the West End a lot these days, so I will keep trying different dishes and let you know what I think.

See you soon.

At the time of writing this post, this restaurant is new to the Glasgow food scene. I saw all the promotion on Facebook, and I thought I need to visit this when it opens.

I decided not to go as soon as it opened as it would probably be mega busy, so I left it for about two weeks.

Prior to going I had a look at the menu, and spotted a few dishes that I would like to try so I knew that when I go I would have to have at least 4 dishes.

This is in a great spot, and going by the prices on the menu its perfect for students or if you just want to order small dishes.

First Impression :

On entering you are hit with vivid colours, lots of bamboo and very friendly staff. I really liked the look of this place, and couldn’t wait to see where my table was.

The walls all were painted very colourful, and some had some very cool artwork this gave the place a very funky and modern look.

While we waited for a few other people to arrive, I sat at the bar and had a talk to the bar staff. Behind the bar staff on the wall, there was a vast selection of drinks so I knew that the cocktails should be good…but I had to try some to see if I was correct or not.

Cocktail Time….

The first cocktail I had was :

Sango Island £7.00
Jinro Soju, Lejay Blue Curaçao, Luxardo Maraschino, Pineapple Juice , Coconut

img_3461

This cocktail sounded nice, and sounded like it would be sweet…well to me it did so I thought lets get it. It was a very nice cocktail, and one that was easy to drink. It wasn’t as sweet as I thought, more a nice balance with a very very slight sour taste at the end.

It would be rude to just have the one cocktail….

My second cocktail was :

Melon Bei £7.00
Midori, Koskenkorva Vodka, Lejay Triple Sec, Lime Juice, Sugar Syrup

IMG_3471

Now this was actually recommended to me by the bar staff, as I told them I had a very sweet tooth so they had a lot to live up to with this recommendation….

Was it sweet enough for me?…

This was AMAZING!!!!!!!! perfect taste, just sweet enough and very easy to drink!!! This is what I will be having again when I return!!!! if you like a sweet cocktail, then when you visit here order this you wont be disapointed.

The Food…

Salt & Pepper Squid £5.50
Chinese style crispy fried squid, chopped spring onion and pepper, sweet chilli sauce

IMG_3488

I love this when I get a Chinese, so I thought lets see how they do it here.

It was nice, the squid was in a nice not too crispy batter and the peppers added nice flavour.

My only issue but this could be a personal thing, it wasn’t that salty, normally you get a nice salty and crispy taste but it was more flavoured and less salty….well to me it was.

Tteok-bokki £4.95
(vgn) Korean rice cake, sweet & spicy

IMG_3490

When this arrived it looked and smelled really nice.

OH MY GOD!!!! for me this was MEGA spicy, and that was with just one piece. To be honest it was really nice flavour, but WAY too spicy for me so I gave it to my friend who has a better spice threshold than me.

Gyoza £5.95
Handmade crispy pork dumplings, soy sauce

IMG_3491

These looked so good so I couldn’t wait to try them.

Yup these were really nice, and the dipping sauce added that nice little extra flavour to them. I could have had more of these.

The little dumplings were perfectly cooked, and the pork was nice and full of flavour.

Korean Tacos £5.95
3 soft corn tacos, spicy Korean beef, Asian salsa, coriander, Chinese chives

IMG_3492

I like tacos, so when I saw Korean Tacos I had to try them and see what they were like.

On arrival I could smell the beef which was amazing, and it looked really good.

These were very very good, and very filling but yup you guessed it I could have had another one.

This is another dish I would have again when I come back.

Overall

Well I was very impressed with Nam Tuk Tram Stop, the cocktails, food, and the service was all very very good and I loved its funky modern design.
