Portion Size : 5/5
Flavour : 6/5 (yip that good)
Presentation : 4

Duck Ma Khaam £5.95

I didn’t know what duck dish to try so I asked the waitress, and she recommended this so I went for it.

This was very nice, and with the sauce even nicer.

This is another dish that I could easily have again, but the wings are still my favourite and I am sure will be hard to beat.

Portion Size : 5/5 
Flavour : 4/5
Presentation : 5/5

Another visit and another flawless service, amazing food and nice time.

Well well well my first event of 2018 and it was a good one!

I received a ping in my email asking me if I would like to come to the launch event of Vapiano Glasgow.

When I read this a little ding happened in my head “I know that name”, then I saw where it was located and BINGO! that’s where I knew the name from….I had recently passed and seen the signs it was opening so I said yes and added to my calendar.

It was time to head to the event…

First Impressions :

As I arrived there was a red carpet and balloons outside, which was very cool and I felt like a VIP.

If you know Glasgow this was where HMV used to be situated, and prior to that I believe was a hotel.

As you enter you pass the reception area, this I heard is where you will pay your bill at the end of the night (Vapiano correct me if I am wrong). Continuing upstairs I arrived and was greeted and given a glass of prosecco.

Looking about it was very very very nice, and tonight was very very busy.

The kitchen area is open and everyone can see the pizza, pasta etc all getting made by the chefs which is very cool and adds a really nice touch.

Time to find a seat..

The Food :

I asked a waiter about the plan for tonight, and it was just ask for drinks and they would bring food to us throughout the night….sounded good to me 🙂

On the table for us the antipasti was already waiting, this was very nice and everything was very fresh and tasty.

Next was the pasta, now we had 3 different types….tomato, pesto and mushroom. My favourite was the pesto pasta mmmm was so good. The others were very nice to, but I love pesto so this was my clear winner.

Due to me jumping up and down to take photos, and do a few live Instagram videos I missed the pizza rounds…….but finally I caught the attention of the waitress and grabbed some as this is what I wanted to try the most tonight.

Unfortunately again I was a bad food blogger and just went in for the kill with the pizza before taking a photo, but I can tell you the base was thin and the pizza I had was very cheesy and it was nice.

I would like to come back and try a pasta and a pizza or two 🙂

Overall :

The whole event was very good, we had good food, good drinks and also a DJ playing really good tunes from start to end.

One part near the end of the night, the manager stood up and thanked all the kitchen staff and waiters for tonight excellent service which was very true it was flawless.

Looking around everyone was having a really good time, laughing, eating and just having a really good night.

I cant comment on the cost as I was invited to this event, but when I return I will tell you what I think of the prices.

A big thanks to Vapiano Glasgow for my invite and you WILL see me again 🙂

Please do check Vapiano Glasgow out as I really cant fault anything tonight and am sure you will love the food 🙂

See you soon!
