With Under the Grill I haven’t set out to educate food lovers in the West of Scotland, it’s simply an honest comment on my eating out experiences which cover restaurants in Glasgow and Ayrshire with a few geographical wild cards flung in for good measure. I don’t pad out reviews with meaningless pics and prefer to concentrate on hard facts about the quality of the food in relation to whats being charged and the overall experience
I’ve tried to restrict reviews to places I have visited in the last eighteen months as you will be well aware a lot can change in eighteen minutes in any culinary establishment! Your comments and recommendations would be most welcome.
Word On The Street
Just been here and the review is now up!!……….loved it……….and!!
they have something special happening this weekend……..
Silverburn eateries push the boat out!
If your shopping at Silverburn then this is the month to fill your boots at one of the many eateries ensconced at this South side emporium which I had an opportunity to do a mini food crawl last week around a few of the venues available prior to a mega food fest running from the 15th -31st July spanning 14 of the outlets. During this period generous discounts will be available across the board at a stack of venues but deals at “The Handmade Burger Co” of 20% across the whole bill and 30% off tapas from La Tasca seem like best deals to me and YO Sushi with 20% off is a must if you want to embrace this casual Japanese style dining for the first time.
Have to say I love La Tasca its just so stylish and we got such a warm welcome from all the team there including an old friend Tony the assistant manager
…….I didnt want to leave, the tapas were sublime but leave I had to!!!……………….HOWEVER when it comes to service its a dead heat with the Handmade Burger guys and food to match…loved it. The Burger Co are in a state of flux at the moment with seriously major alterations going on at that end of the mall in preparation for the expansion / cinema that's planned needless to say the service was as good as it gets and the selection of burgers sliders etc were top notch!
If your heading to SB you can download a discount voucher and find out more about the other participants at http://www.shopsilverburn.com/events/summer-dine or visit the service desk when you visit.
Picked up a wee cupcake from the Bumblebee Bakery before I left…..mmmmmmmm…delicious!
I've decided to add a new feature within the UTG web site which will endorse quality products especially if they are produced within Scotland and Taylor's Mustard will be the first of what I hope will be many!..see buy and try above.
Ravin' about The Raven……….review now up!
Review for Alston Bar & Beef……..now up!
We have a new No 1 venue and a bit of a reshuffle in our top five!!….check it out above.
Balbirs A77 is apparently open and is now being run by Balbir and not leased out which can only be good as it was well down the brae in recent times.
