I was lucky enough to get tickets for the Mad Chef’s F**k ME I’M VEGAN event with support from Sgaia Vegan Meats and Vegan Connections, where he unveiled the vegan V Mac burger. Sorta like a big mac from McDonald’s but, you know, vegan. While I’m not vegan, you all know if there’s something exciting happening […]

If you know me, you know I love fruity cocktails. I recently had the totally fun pleasure of tasting some samples from drinks company Island Slice. They specialise in Caribbean rum fusions – which is as good as it sounds. I received 3 bottles and did not waste any time getting them opened and poured […]

Cheap Tips, Sweet Treat

Everyone deserves to treat themselves. I choose to treat myself with sweet and chocolaty treats. I have a very sweet tooth – and the waistline to prove it. My craving for sweet things border lines on addiction but then what teenager’s doesn’t? Walking along the Royal Mile in Edinburgh every second shop will sell sweet […]

If anyone’s in Glasgow I recommend trying out Kama Sutra – its fulfilling, relaxing and will leave you satisfied all night long. It will make you yearn for more but wonder whether you could handle it. I am of course talking about the fantastic Indian restaurant on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow’s city centre. With provocative […]

Recently I was searching online for a cheap restaurant with a menu that took my fancy. I happened to accidentally stumble upon The Raven when I pressed the wrong link on my phone. This was one of the few mistakes in my life that I really do not regret. Situated on Renfield Street, The Raven […]

The Black Sparrow – Glasgow

Cheap Tips, Eat Out

The Black Sparrow is a grand hidden gem tucked into an unsuspecting underpass at Charing Cross. The out-side appearance is that of a traditional old pub- but this place is anything but traditional. With ceilings that stretch to infinity, huge paintings and a classic mirrored bar, the restaurant is quite a visual delight. I had […]

I must confess my deep-rooted hatred of sandwich chain Subway. This stems from a revolting viral video from a few years back showing a staff member stuffing lettuce up his nose then snorting it back into the salad bar. This, along with the synthetic taste of their bread and the same disgusting smell all their […]

Marcel Boulestin, the host of BBC’s first ever cooking show, once said: “Cookery is not chemistry. It is an art. It requires instinct and taste rather than exact measurements.” This principle looks to be the founding pillar of Mongolian restaurant, Khublai Khans, in the heart of Glasgow’s merchant city. The restaurant is based around the […]

A Lidl Help For My Friends

Posted on by Amy Byrne under Cheap Tips

Everyone knows the stigma attached to low price supermarkets like Lidl and Aldi. We’ve all seen (and admittedly laughed) at this video. However, as funny as this video may be, Lidl and Aldi are slowly overtaking the 4 supermarket giants.  With prices high and wages low across all sectors, these shops have established a whole […]
