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.

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

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 🙂

I have been to the Corinthian a good few times, mostly for the Afternoon Tea which is my favourite in Glasgow. Inside has always had a lovely and relaxing atmosphere, and also the staff have been very friendly and helpful.

Last week I got an email inviting me to tonight’s event, which was to try something from the new menu….well I love my food and I like the Corinthian so I couldn’t turn it down.

I was looking forward to trying this menu, as I have never really been in here for food. Its always been Afternoon Tea, or for a few drinks so it was now time to sample the food.

On entry I was welcomed and shown to my table, if you have never been here there are effectively 3 seating areas in here. The first being the ones on the left as you go in, these are booths with a big chair. These are more for couples, and this is where I was seated tonight. The next is the middle are, which has a few group tables, and then the far right which is booths and tables again for groups.

The Food…

Starter

Potted Chicken Liver Parfait £N/A (Normally £6.95)
Pear Chutney, Pea Shoot Salad & Brioche Toast

img_3408

I always like to try this at any restaurant, as its interesting how they all differ and how they present it.

This was presented very nicely, and looked very good, my first thought was maybe 1 more brioche toast would be good but lets see how I get on.

I have to say this was the best Chicken Liver Parfait I have tasted so far, it was very very smooth and full of flavour and it worked amazing with the Brioche Toast. I was correct though, there was still enough parfait in the little pot enough for one more slice.

I would have this again!!!

Main

Herb Crusted Ayrshire Pork Fillet £N/A (Normally £14.95)
Toulouse Sausage & white bean Cassoulet

img_3434

I spotted 3 dishes I wanted to try, but I opted for this as it sounded nice. My second option would have been Peterhead Haddock and Chips, as it sounded very good.

When it arrived, the presentation and smell was very good so I was looking forward to seeing how this tasted.

This was very nice, and cooked just right as it was not mega chewy which is always my pet hate when it comes to dishes like this.

Dessert

Brandy Soused Strawberry Creme Brulee (V) £N/A (Normally £5.95)
Shortbread

img_3437

Presentation again this was very good, and it looked very good.

I tried the shortbread first, and this was very good I love shortbread.

Moving on to the Creme Brulee, this was again perfect and very very nice. This and the shortbread for me was a perfect combination.

I would have this again!

During the meal, a live quarter was performing they were called Strings Aloud. Due to the design of this building, and due to it being strings the acoustics were amazing and the sound was very relaxing and created a very very nice atmosphere for everyone.

Overall :

I am very pleased I got tonight’s invite, as I learned that here does very nice food where are before in my mind it was more a cocktails and Afternoon Tea location.

I cant fault anything tonight, all 3 courses were very nice, the service was good and also the atmosphere was perfect.

I would like to thank the Corinthian again for my invite, I had a very enjoyable evening and will see you soon.

I had been to Smoke BBQ long ago, and was a little disappointed so it was time to give it a second shot. The reason I was disappointed was, what I wanted to order they didn’t have left so I had to try something else.

Just like the last time we were shown to the table, and given some popcorn to snack on while we waited.

This is a funky idea, and the popcorn was nice shame they only brought one little one to share between two.
