Visit Date : Saturday 4th January 2017

Most of you that have been following this blog know i’ve been to Poco Havana a few times, you can read my previous reviews here and here

I have been hitting the Glasgow restaurants very hard recently, and spent a little more than I wanted. When I recently came across an itison voucher that I purchased a while back, and noticed that it was expiring soon so I thought lets head back and use it for a cheap weekend dinner.

My voucher was for two mains, so I will still show the cost of the dishes so you know what they would have been.

Main Course :

Chipotle Pulled Pork Burrito 12″ £8.95 (normally but I had the voucher)
“FILLED WITH ZINGY CITRUS RICE, REFRIED BEANS, GRATED MONTEREY JACK CHEESE, SALSA, SOUR CREAM AND YOUR CHOICE OF FILLING IN A 10” OR 12” FLOUR TORTILLA”

This was the first time I have had a Burrito at Poco Havana, so I was looking forward to seeing how they did them and also how it tasted.

I know in my recent previous posts I said I would try and be more critical and not always say it was really good, well this was really really good. With every bite I had my mouth was bursting with flavour, and I could have easily had another.

Sorry I didn’t show how it looked inside, I was enjoying it too much it was finished before that thought pop’d in my head.

Cocktail :

Again I have had a few cocktails here in the past, so I decided to try something new.

Frozen Margarita/Daiquiri £13.50
“Sharing jugs of our classic Margaritas and Daiquiris”

My girlfriend and I opted for the Mango one.

As you can see from the photo, you get a large amount since its a sharing jug. You get about 2 glasses full each from this, so its really worth the money.

Overall :

This was a very enjoyable visit, I felt very relaxed and enjoyed the food and cocktails.

Poco Havana have had a few deals on itison, so if you want to check it out but worries about trying somewhere new then this is the option for you.

The staff have always been very friendly and very helpful, and if you like burritos then you should check Poco Havana’s.
