The Food…

Beer

Admiral £15

This was very nice, it had some caramel after taste and was a nice light beer.

For me so far this is my fav beer, but they do have more on the menu so I will keep trying.

Another funky thing here is you get to keep the cork, as they turn in to a keyring!

Flavour : 4
Value for Money : 4

Main Course

#5  £8.00
Tomato & spicy ‘nduja sause’, mozzarella, spicy ventricina salami, ricotta cheese, black pepper, basil, olive oil.

This looked good, so I didnt take long after taking the photo to dig right in.

mmmmm this was very good!!! as I said in my previous review from last year, the base is thin so if thats something you dont like then you may have an issue with the pizza…but for me this was very very good!!

I wanted to try this at the blogger opening event, but I didnt want to come over as a pig that night….so tonight I was that pig.

WOW this was perfect, the flavours, textures so so so so good!!

I will defo be having this again at my next visit.

Kimchi Cult! (Westend, Glasgow) : Review​

14 Chancellor Street
Glasgow G11 5RQ

V: 17th June 2018      T:  0141 258 8081  W: www.kimchicult.com

Child-Friendly: Yes (well-behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


I have had here on my list to visit for about one year, a food blogger recommended it to me so I added it and finally I got round to taking a visit.

Kimchi Cult is very small, and can only sit maybe 20 people max but from what I saw it does more deliveries. The people who did sit in came in, ate and then left so the turn over was always fast.

The Food…

Starter

Pulled Port BOA £4.00

IMG_1602.jpg

This looked nice when it arrived, and for £4 it was a perfect size.

This was really nice, full of flavour and I could have easily had two….but I was saving myself for my main.

Main Course

Kimchi Cheeseburger £7.50
Beef burger topped with Kimchi, cheese and mustard.

Let me just start by saying when I saw the cost £7.50 I was very sceptical, thinking this is a pub burger cost and pub burgers are not good.

After my first bite, I knew this was no pub burger as it was very very good. It was juicy, nice flavour and perfectly cooked.

My only issue was not enough cheese on this, I think with just a little more that would have helped.

Overall

Overall my first visit was a good one, for the quality of the food and the cost this is a place you have to visit.

I will try a few other things next visit, as I will be going back.

See you soon guys!

Zest (Edinburgh) : Review

15 North Street
Andrew Street
Edinburgh, EH2 1HJ

V: 17th November 2018      T:  0131 556 5028  W: www.zest-restaurant.co.uk

Child-Friendly: Yes (well-behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


I have never been to Edinburgh so much in one year than I have this year and guess what I am back again to review an Indian restaurant.

The guys at Zest were really nice to invite me to come and try a few dishes from their menu, which I kindly accepted and added the date to my calendar.

I took the bus from Glasgow bus station to Edinburgh this time, as the last time I took the train which is mega costly…this time the bus was £10 return which is really good…..so you have no excuse not to come to Edinburgh to try this place or the other places I have reviewed.

First Impression :

On entering I was greeted by the staff and asked where I would like to sit, I told them wherever and they showed me to a window seat so I could enjoy the view while eating.

The atmosphere tonight was very nice, as it wasn’t too busy when I went in, but gradually did get busier….plus they do have music playing in the background but at a nice level it’s not overpowering or disturbing your chats at the table.

Time to look at the menu…

As always the prices in Edinburgh are always that little bit more than Glasgow, but you are looking at about £1 to £3 max so it’s not too much more.

The menu here looked really good, and price wise good too. There were so many dishes I wanted to try, but I selected a starter and a main.

The Food…

The manager? owner? came over to the table and introduced himself and suggested rather than I order a starter and a main he would bring a sample of the starters and a few curries to try……this sounded perfect as I was a hungry boy.

Starter Sample

IMG_5173

Normally I can tell you what the dish name is and its cost, but since this was a sample of a few starters that is a little harder.

On the plate was: Vegetable Pakora, Chicken Pakora, Lamb and Chicken Tikka

I am not just saying this but the Vegetable and Chicken Pakora was really!!!! good! and the Lamb was so so tender it was cooked to perfection.

I am very impressed with this starter, as I was only going to select the Vegetable Pakora so it was great that I got to try more.

Main Course

WOW, so our table was very full of food once all this arrived.

So we were brought four dishes, and they all looked good. The above photo shows all for together, and individually so you can see them better.

Dish 1 : Matar Paneer

If you have had Saag Paneer before then this is very similar, and just as nice and so easy to eat. It was cooked perfectly and had a really nice taste.

Dish 2 : A Lamb dish (can’t remember its exact name)

Just like the starter the lamb in this curry was so so tender, again cooked to perfection and the best Lamb dish I have had!

Dish 3 : P297 Special

This is a chicken dish, and again just like the starter the chicken was perfectly cooked!

Dish 4: Salmon Country Captain

The salmon just broke up, and the flavours mmmm I am getting hungry just typing this.

And there was more…

I was also given some rice and a Pashwari Naan (my fav)

IMG_5178

This is my favourite naan, as I have a sweet tooth and this is a sweet naan.

The bread was nice and thin, yet just crispy enough and the filling very sweet so it was perfect for me.

I could have easily had more of this 🙂

Overall

Firstly I would like to thank Zest for my invite, and all the really good food.

I would also like to say as always just because I got an invite, the review you just read is 100% my own thoughts and 100% honest.

Overall I am glad I got to come to Zest, I had a really good meal and a very relaxing evening.

Zest will be another one from Edinburgh, that I will be adding to my top spots so do check them out.

Thanks guys and see you soon 🙂
