The last time I was here, I tried a few things so today I was meeting a friend and gave him the option of where to eat and he selected Barca.

So today I went back to Barca…

I spotted they had a deals menu where you could get 3 dishes for a specific cost, this is perfect for me as it means I get to try 3 new dishes and the cost won’t be too expensive.

DEAL : Any 3 tapas from £12.95 per person

The Food…

Pequena Hamburguesa £N/A
Two beef sliders, toasted brioche bun, chilli jam.

Yup I know I have had these before, but I thought will they be as good as the first time? lets try and find out.

OK, so they were very nice but the burger today wasn’t as juicy as it was last time so for me it was nice but not as nice as the last time.

I upgraded to the Manchego cheese for an extra £1, it was nice but as I said the burgers were not as juicy today.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4

Choricitos Barca Tapas £NA

Yeah this was on the menu! I even asked the guy and he explained it was a smaller size to the normal dish….so I had to try and see what it was like.

Just like the bigger version of this dish, I loved this and just be careful its very filling so if you want to order this make sure your other dishes are not going to be too heavy for you.

Overall

Another really enjoyable time at Barca, the atmosphere was good and the food from this offer menu was really good.

Next time I would probably try something else instead of the sliders now, but lets wait and see.

See you soon guys.

I have been here a few times, but never done a review.

Today I decided I needed a burger fix and thought lets try here, and do a little review while I am at it.

Inside Princess Square for me is always very nice and relaxing, the atmosphere is great even just for a little walk about.

Time for the burger…

The Food…

Main Course

The Smoakhouse Burger £12.95
American cheese, smokes bacon and BBQ sauce

On arrival this looked very good and my mouth instantly started to water.

This was a very juicy and flavoursome burger, everything about it was very good. The BBQ sauce worked very well with the beef, and I enjoyed every mouthful.

I would happily have this again.

Red Rudolph Cocktail £6.50
Absolut Vodka, Strawberry Liquer, Cranberry and Lime

This is a special Christmas cocktail, so I am not sure if they will have something similar on the menu in the New Year (I hope they do).

This was a really good cocktail, I could have easily had many more but I was being a good boy today.

Overall

I am glad I visited NY American Grill again, as the atmosphere and the food was very good today. I wouldn’t say it was the best burger in Glasgow, but its at least in my top 4 places.

See you soon guys.
