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 […]

  Mezze is one of Glasgow’s most talked about and anticipated restaurants. The excitement has been growing, and now with their launch over and the roof-top bar and eatery a fully-fledged member of the amazing Glasgow food scene, I want to reflect back a few weeks on the incredible grand-opening/bloggers night that I was so […]

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 […]

Miller and Carter Steak house is true, unadulterated decadence. Everything about the place screams romance and fun, which is why my boyfriend and I chose it as our Valentine’s spot this year. In the weeks leading up to our reservation – which I was advised to make far in advance because of the restaurants popularity […]

I honestly never thought I’d find myself day-dreaming over the exquisite taste and texture of L’escagot (snails) but here I am – in my post dinner glow – wishing I could have another plate. Atlantic Bar and Brasserie, located a short walk from George Square, is in a tier of its own when it comes […]

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 […]

Hanoi Bike Shop – Glasgow

The West End of Glasgow has become famous for being – to put it nicely – a bit posh. Unsurprisingly this reputation originates from Glasgow University which is situated in this area. Due to the large population of students this area of Glasgow, in particular Byres Road, has developed an edgy and bohemian vibe. Don’t […]

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

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 […]

The theme of Ox and Finch is modern tapas, with plates coming in a size between main and starter. The […]
