Oysters - yay or nay? I was always an open minded seafood fanatic, but when it came to oysters something just made me hesitant. I eventually tried them, and as I was swallowing my very first oyster my sister said “Haha it looks like a...” - I’ll spare you all the end of the sentence - comment with what you think they look like 🤣 that experience of hitting the boke as I was trying to swallow wasn’t great. So I avoided them until I came to @kapaogla and @glasgowfoodgeek insisted that I just try them. I LOVED them, and regret the years I’ve missed out on with oysters! These are topped with green nam jim which is a spicy coriander-y relish/sauce. Very punchy and gorgeous!
I am SO happy it’s Saturday - what an exhausting week! Long lie, delicious breakfast and nothing but chilling out on the menu for this weekend for me. Pictured is a Vegetarian Breakfast which I sabotaged by adding bacon, because bacon 🥓
If you think salads are boring, you’re doing it wrong hun. I love salads, and I always have. This was a very different salad to the ones I make myself mind you; this was a luxurious salad! Stunning grilled beef with a garlic and lemongrass flavoured shallot dressing on the greens, and it was all topped with toasted coconut. It was both rich but also light and moreish. Loved it 👌🏼
This sandwich is not only called The Masterpiece, but it literally is a masterpiece 🤤 @mibbiesaye is an amazing wee sandwicherie in Hamilton and I LOVE their stuff. A baguette with their stunning slow roasted brisket beef, fondant potato, roasted cherry tomatoes, caramelised onions, mature cheddar cheese, spinach and coleslaw. God tier sandwiching 👌🏼
I am all about fish curry - I absolutely love them. As much as I love a good old chicken tikka masala or chasni, a seafood curry is very difficult for me to resist. This is a sea trout curry with a coconut and lemongrass sauce. I personally prefer white fish over oily in a curry, so I wasn’t sure I’d love this, but it was so beautiful and the flavours all worked perfectly. I’d definitely order this one again 🥥👌🏼
Ye cannae beat a wee banana fritter 🍌 But seriously, you can’t beat this one. Oh my GOD it was so delicious! I chose to swirl the coconut & pandan ice cream with mango & calamansi sorbet...a winning combination on their own, believe me! The banana fritters are drizzled one palm sugar caramel and the entire dish had lime zest sprinkled. Like the caramel chicken, it was an 11/10 must order dish! I absolutely loved it 😍
This is like one of those ‘When you meet your heroes’ posts, except my hero isn’t a sports figure or film star...it’s a bowl of chicken balls. Fancy chicken balls, mind you. I met up with @glasgowfoodgeek and told her to order for me - her advice is THAT on point. My only stipulation was that I needed this dish, and she confirmed that was essential! This here is the Spicy Caramel Fried Chicken which I’d been absolutely dying to try and it not only met my expectations but massively exceeded them. The batter is SO delicious and is really thick so you get that perfect t crisp texture but also the night softness inside. The chicken was beyond tender and the sauce just...next level. A MUST order. 11/10 for effort @kapaogla 🙌🏼🔥
