Visit Date : Friday 30th December 2016

Finally I am back at Sugar Dumplin for some food, and I brought some friends to see and try the place. So why have I not been back for food you ask? Well, just there are so many places in Glasgow to try and on my list….But I do come here for cocktails so it balances out I think.

Sugar Dumpling is a home from home for me, myself and my best friend have been regulars nearly every single weeks since it opened. The staff (even though its changed) know us by our first name, and are always very welcoming.

We hired a shack for the evening, which was perfect for all of us.

Starter :

Jerk Ribs £5.95 (GF)
Jerk ribs covered in irie sauce topped with sliced chilli and spring onion

So far for me there are two places that do really good ribs in Glasgow (yes I know I’ve still lots to try but at this point in time). The first is here and the second is Nippon Kitchen.

These ribs were cooked perfect, the meat just slide off the bone and it was tender and really full of flavour.

If you visit this is a must to have as your starter.

Flavour (out of 5) :  5

Main :

Curry Goat £11.95 (GF)
Slow cooked, curry goat off the bone with mixed pepper, potato and Carrots

For me the rice part was a little lacking in flavour, yes I could have added some sauce but it was the first time trying this so I thought I would take it as its made.

The goat well that was a different story it was full of flavour, very tender and just broke up in my mouth.

Flavour (out of 5) :  4

After and well during the meal we had some drinks and cocktails, but the main part after the meal was shots.

The shots we had  :

  • Cafe Patron Tequila
  • Tequila

You may be shocked to read this but the only time I have had tequila is mixed in a cocktail, and never on its own so this was the first time trying it. I didn’t use any salt or lime, which I know you should as I didn’t actually mind the taste and it was smooth to drink.

The Cafe Patron Tequila now this was am talking about, this was  coffee flavoured Tequila and yes its meant as a shot but you can easily have it as a sipping drink. First time trying this, and also won’t be my last as I liked it a lot.

Visit Overall :

Overall just like anytime I have been in I had a really nice meal, and felt very relaxed. Everyone I was with also enjoyed the food, and we had a very nice evening.
