** UPDATE : At the time of posting this, the Glasgow branch has just closed which is a BIG SHAME to as the food, milkshakes and staff were all really good. I loved the milkshakes, I really hope they re-open as there are a few burger places near and they are no way as good as here was!!!!

I have visited Byron Burgers a good few times now since it opened, and every time I have never been disappointed in any way.

More and more recently I have seen some Facebook Ads for a new Christmas Cheesy burger, and thought I like cheese, I like burgers so I need to visit and see what its like.

The Food :

Today I decided to try two dishes, these were small ones.

Cheesemas Feast £16.95 (Burger + Side + Drink)
6oz hamburger, Barber’s cheddar, Barber’s Red Leicester, Byron cheese, crispy Grana Padano, red onion, smoked tomato ketchup, Grana Padano aioli and a jug of Byron cheese sauce

Lets start with the burger..

On arrival this looked good, and I liked how there was even more cheese in the little pot next to it.

I just went for it and poured the extra cheese on top, the smell and look was really good so I couldn’t wait to dig right in.

Firstly as soon as I picked this up I knew this was going to be one messy burger, but I didn’t care as it was very very good!!! and very messy.

The crisp Grana Padano was really nice and I could have had more of that.

Overall this was amazing and I hope they keep it on the menu, or if not have something similar to this as its really good and the cost is very good value for money.

So I opted to have even more cheese and went for the Cheese Fries.

What can you say about fries with cheese and bacon apart from these were good 🙂 mmmm

Chocolate Milkshake (plus baileys shot)

I LOVE the chocolate milkshakes here so couldn’t wait to order the chocolate one again, but I decided to try the one with baileys shot to see what its like.

It was ok with the shot, the chocolate milkshake on its own is much better and I have to say is the best I have ever had!!!!

Overall :

My return visit to Byron was a good one and a very very very cheese packed and filling visit.

Go try this before they stop it and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I am never really in this area of Glasgow, mostly drive through it but today I was going for brunch.

I had heard many good reviews about Lebowskis from either the atmosphere, the drinks, events etc so I was looking forward to trying here.

Today was a nice day so I opted to sit outside and enjoy the sun.

The Food :

This was part of an Itison deal so it was 2 Bunches with prosecco for £19, this is really good its basically 50% off

Full Breakfast £n/a (normally £15)
The full breakfast



What can I say? this was very filling, you had loads here to eat and everything was cooked perfectly.

For me and its a personal thing, I like my bacon a little more crispy but I didn’t ask for it this was as wanted to see how they do it.

I really enjoyed this and would have this again, but I did spot they did pancakes bacon and maple syrup as another option so hmmmm it could be that if I get this voucher again.

Overall :

Today was a nice day, I enjoyed sipping on my Prosecco and having my big breakfast under the sun.

I have zero complaints about today’s visit, the food and service was very good and for value for money with the voucher it was very very good.

Would I go back? Yes with and without the voucher as its still good value but more so with the voucher.

The Pub (Bucharest, Romania) : Review

Bulevardul Regina Elisabeta 9
București, Romani

One of the things I wanted to do on this visit, was to visit The Pub as you could sit at your table and pour your own beer. I have never done this before, so I thought this is very cool and I NEED to do this.

I didn’t realise this visit would also be to eat, as in my head it was only for a drink but when we arrived here we were both very hungry.

On entering its a very cool looking place, very student style but also had a nice relaxing look and feel to it.

Not all tables have the self service beer, just the ones in the middle or the restaurant. Sitting down I took a look at the device on the table, then the waitress came over and explained how it worked. She was very helpful and very friendly, and best of all for me she spoke English.

I didn’t really know what to order, but I thought I wouldn’t go for a burger as that’s always my safe option I would try something different and see how that is.

I opted for the Ribs that came with mashed potato and a sauce, unfortunately as I was to obsessed with the pulling my own beer I forgot to take note of how much this was.

The ribs were nice, not the best I have tasted but nice and the side sauce what ever it was worked amazing with it.

If your interested in the beer pulling part, check out my VLOG Part 1 of Bucharest features this VIEW HERE

Overall I would go back as I loved pulling my own beer, and it was very reasonably priced and good beer.

Overall

I enjoyed my visit here very much, I loved the feel and atmosphere plus I really loved that I could pour my own beer.

If I return to Bucharest again, I will need to go back to have more beer 🙂
