Shocker am back again, but why not every time I have been its always been a really enjoyable night and enjoyable food….so lets see will it continue when I try more new items.

The Food…

Jijimi Seafood 5.95
Pan fried vegetable pancake, spring onion, soy sauce

I was very undecided what to order tonight, I wanted to order a few favs but then again it wouldn’t be much of a review since you could easily see what I thought in a previous one…..so I took one for the team and tried another new dish.

On arrival this looked very good so it was time to tuck in…

For me this was so so, it didn’t have too much flavour so the soy sauce was needed. If you are looking for a nice light dish, this is perfect but for me I need something with a little more flavour.

Thai Prawn Crackers £2.95

I wanted a little side dish, so I ordered these. The last time I had these were at a Chinese restaurant in town, so I thought I wonder how they are here.

These were very nice, just as good as the ones I have had at the Chinese restaurant. If you like the normal style prawn crackers, give these a shot and am sure these will be your new favourites.

Overall

In short a solid 5 out of 5 again!

2nd Visit to Dumpling Monkey (West End, Glasgow) : Review

V: 11th November 2017      T:  0141 583 8300  W: www.dumplingmonkey.com

Child Friendly: Yes      Accepts: Cash & Card


After my first visit here, which for me was not that good to be honest. I had heard from another blogger that the dumplings here are amazing….so I thought lets give here a second chance.

Again just like the last time we were shown to our seat, and told that we had to order at the counter.

Tonight I ordered one style of dumplings and my girlfriend ordered another so we could try two styles.

The Food…

Special Dumplings £6.00
Contains pork, King prawns & Chives

On arrival this looked OK, and I was very interested at how these were going to taste.

For me anyway, these were not that tasty even with the added sauce it still didn’t do much for me.

Vegetarian Dumplings £6.00
Contains celery, dried tofu & shitake mushrooms

This was the one that my girlfriend ordered so I tried a few.

Again very dissapointed this had less flavour than mine…

I don’t say this very often but for me this will be my last visit to Dumpling Monkey, both visits just didn’t do anything for me.

There are other similar places near Dumpling Monkey, similar costs that pack a much much better flavour.

Sorry guys!

3rd Visit to Nam Tuk Tram Stop (West End, Glasgow) : Review

This is becoming a home from home for me…

Back again and back to try some more food, this time I didn’t really know what to order so I decided to just randomly select a few items.

Something I have not mentioned in my previous reviews is that there is music playing in the background, this is being played at a nice level which for me is good as I hate going anywhere and need to shout across the table.

The Food…

Sushi Taco 6.95
Raw fish, cucumber, avocado, radish, rice, mayonnaise

IMG_3734.jpg

Today I decided to pick something random, and this was the first dish that caught my eye.

On arrival I thought wow big dish but hey I can eat a lot so I didn’t mind.

This was very nice and very filling, the flavour was very good. I will say I think there was a wasabi vinegar used on top of this? I could be wrong but for me it was overpowering and the flavour of the fish was slightly lost.

I would get this again, but maybe ask to use a little less wasabi or whatever it was that was giving it a strong flavour for me. If your a wasabi fan then you will love this.

Green Chicken Curry £5.95
Spicy green chicken curry, green beans, fresh chilli, sweet basil

IMG_3735.jpg

I was recommended this at the end of my last visit to Nam Tuk, by the waitress as she said it would suit me more as I prefer sweet dishes.

So today I ordered it to see how it was.

I ordered this with the Egg Fried rice which I loved on my last visit.

This was very very good, very nice flavours and had a nice subtle sweet taste to it which was perfect for me.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Overall

What can I say so far all visits have been perfect, I have no complaints and loved trying these new dishes.

I did see they did some shots, and a few other dishes did catch my eye so I will try these next time

See you soon Nam Tuk
