While I was at work I got an email in my inbox, and it was an invite to come to a place called the Dockyard Social for a blogger event. The Dockyard is a place I had heard the name a few times, but to be honest not really much about it.

The Dockyard was on my list to visit, so I kindly accepted the invite and added it to my calendar.

Dockyard Social is a new street food and bar hub near Finnieston, close to the SECC, Hydro and the West End.

After work, I made my way over to the Dockyard…

First Impressions :

When my taxi arrived outside I was thinking to myself “is this the right place”, it looked like a big warehouse….so this was interesting.

On entering the building wow it was massive and very cool inside.

Tonight apart from the blogger event, there was a Halloween event happening so that’s why it has all the funky spooky items everywhere.

We were given a welcome cocktail which was very nice, one was Melon (not a fan) and the other looked interesting as it had a syringe….yup that’s the one I went for.

While enjoying my cocktail, I took a walk around seeing what food stalls were here.

These food stalls are always here, and what a variety you get to pick from. You have so many options, you have to have a little something from a few. I am not sure if they are always here, or if the vendors change to give you constant variety.

Plus there was a few more, but it was very busy and I didn’t get a chance to take photos.

It was now time to have something to eat, as I was very hungry so this was going to be a tough choice as there was so many nice items to pick from today.

The Food..

Tonight I opted to get two items, one from one stand and one from another.

NomNam : Korean Fried Chicken Wings £5

Well, these looked and smelled very nice, now it was time to taste.

WOW, these were very good….and VERY messy but worth every bite and mess all over my fingers and mouth. The flavour was really good and very moreish.

Value for money was REALLY good, and if you visit Dockyard do try these.

Lit : Salt & Szechuan Pepper Chicken Wrap £5

IMG_3267.jpg

This was on my list to try all night, as it sounded so good.

Firstly all this for £5 wow really good, and the smell was amazing.

Every bite of this was really good, the flavour of the chicken with everything else was perfect.

Cocktails…

I noticed that they did cocktails, and all of them sounded very good

Overall

This is a very cool place, and if you follow them on their Dockyard Social Facebook Page you will see they do many fun events.

I will definitely be going back as it was a very good evening, and the atmosphere was really fun.

Street food is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to eat out in Glasgow and having Dockyard on the scene just makes it even easier to have your Street Food fix.

Please do take a visit here to one of the event, its a very cool place with really good street food.

See you guys soon and thanks again 🙂

The past few times I have been in Bar Soba, it was for cocktails and not for food.

It was time to take a visit, and try some food as its always looked good when ive been in.

On arrival it was a very very busy day, so inside and outside was mega busy. We were seated at the back, to the side.

This was not a great position to sit anyone, it was near stairs and the sections toilet so people and waiters were constantly passing behind me….plus the lighting a little dull.

The Food…

Starter

Cheeseburger Spring Rolls £5.00
Soba burger mayo

The description sounded interesting, and also on arrival it looked interesting.

This was nice, wasnt amazing but it was nice. It had a slight kick to it, and the sauce was very nice.

I would order this again.

Main Course

Bangkok Burger £10.00
Chargrilled beef patty flavoured with Thai spices, with sliced chedder, and Soba mayo.

This also had a little kick to it, and the burger was perfecly cooked.

The flavours were nice, it wasnt the best burger in Glasgow but it was a good one.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Overall

Overall it was ok value for money, but where I was seated really killed the mood tonight for me.

Will I go back? maybe but I would probably try sit in a different location and see if that helps.

The guys at Revolution were kind enough to send me an invite, to come along and have dinner.  Revolution was on my list to try ever since it opened, so I accepted their lovely invite.

On entering I took a good look around.

This was really nice inside, very bright, open and a nice design everyone I looked at were all happy and having a nice time.

I was then shown to my seat…

The Food…

I didnt want to go overboard since I was invited and waste food, so I skipped a starter and looked right at the burgers.

Instantly one caught my attention and I thought, this is the one for me!!!!

Burger

The Smoke King £n/a tonight…..(Normally £12.75)
Three beef patties layered with nacho cheese, loaded with smoky creamed corn, streaky bacon, caramel BBQ sauce, chorizo ketchup and crispy fried onions. Served under a cloud of applewood smoke in a sesame brioche bun, with a large scoop of skin-on fries. #SMOKEKING

This arrived like the photo above, and I was told to watch carefully as the waitress lifted the glass cover. This was a very interesting idea, plus added a little fun to the food.

WOW was my instant thought when the burger was presented, and also “I dont think dessert will be happening tonight” 🙂

I tried lifting this with my hands, but my mouth wasnt big enough….so I fell back to using the old knife and fork.

MMMM MMMM MMMM MMM MMM!!!! this was really really good! every mouthful from start to finish was mmmm

I highly recomend you try this!!!! and more so with a knife and fork 🙂

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5
Value for Money : n/a tonight

Dessert

Bombshell Brownie £n/a tonight…..(Normally £4.95)
A heavenly explosion of chocolate brownie bites, salted caramel chocolate sauce, golden honeycomb chunks and rich chocolate ice cream, sprinkled with popping candy. #LOVEFOOD

This arrived on the table, then the waitress set the sparkler alight.

At first I thought the ice cream was covered in nuts, which I cant take but then I noticed it wasnt nuts but what was it?…..it was poping candy woohoo

This was really nice, and yes I did finish it after that big burger.

My only issue and its a personal one…..I could have done with more chocolate sauce 🙂

Overall

Firstly a big thanks to Revolution for my invite, and for a very nice evening.

Overall I am very impressed with tonight, the staff were lovely and helpful with all my questions…the food well WOW amazing and I cant wait to have that burger again 🙂

I looked at their cocktail list and really liked the sound of most, so my next visit I will try more food and a few cocktails.

For me Bread and Butter now have burger competition!!!!!!! this was an amazing burger!!!!

If your a burger fan you NEED to check here out!
