Hummus Chicken Shawarma 🥗 This was absolutely phenomenal. I feel thoroughly nourished! I’ve seen a few posts about it and I wasn’t totally convinced I’d try it, but I’m so glad I did! What a mixture of flavours - from the harissa to the artichokes to the pickes - a huge range and it just worked so beautifully. The chicken had such amazing flavours from the hummus and the meat was crispy on the outside and tender inside. I was starving and didn’t manage to finish it due to ordering sides, so if you’re ordering this then you’re in for a REALLY good feed 😍🍗
I am all about the comfort food these days! This is a beautiful Greek alternative to lasagne - Pastitsio! Lamb and beef mince fed into pasta tubes in a rich tomato sauce, topped with bechamel sauce and Kefalotyri cheese! I ordered this as part of their amazing 2 for £10 decal and can not recommend it enough - Plato is one of my absolute favourite restaurants! 🇬🇷
‘‘Tis the season! I am absolutely hot chocolate daft at this time of year and my hands-down favourite is always Options mint flavour. I was offered a complementary hot chocolate after my brunch at @theivyglasgow, and when she said that mint hot chocolate was an option (haha...unintentional) I was DELIGHTED. I love that it was served with a warmed jug with more hot chocolate in it so you can top yourself up! Amazing ☕️❄️
Meddled with the vegetarian breakfast at @theivyglasgow and added smoked bacon - I regret nothing! This was SO tasty! Perfect poached eggs with hollandaise, avocado, grilled halloumi, tomatoes, beans and a tattie scone - with their delicious smoky bacon added for good measure. What a feast 😍
Me: I want to try something new, experiment, experience more of the vast wonders and beauty of Italian cooking. Also me: chooses something on the menu, has an internal crisis as the waitress arrives to the table, orders seafood linguini because I haven’t tried it in *this* restaurant yet. 🍝💁🏻♀️
#INVITED | Today wasn’t a great day, but tonight was an amazing night! Melted cheese makes me so, so happy! I was invited to @innisandgunnashtonlane tonight to attend a showcase of @brigstonandco who supply them with their gourmet hot dogs. The chefs used the hot dogs in several different ways which I’ll share with you in due course, and this one is my absolute favourite! A bowl of melted @cowsandco Brie with @brigstonandco sausage & bacon pastry skewers. Heavenly 😍 Innis & Gunn absolutely need to get this onto their menu, pronto!
Always a pleasure, Plato! Whilst the a la Carter menu is always excellent value for money, Plato are running a phenomenal deal at the moment for 2 courses for £10 for selected times all week! Their food is to die for, so this price is honestly outrageous! I went today for an early lunch and I’m so stuffed I won’t be needing a dinner either! This restaurant is one of my firm favourites - I totally recommend it to anyone who hasn’t yet tried them out! 🇬🇷❤️
We found ourselves absolutely starving, frozen to the bone, and on Ashton Lane this evening and made the emergency decision to find comfort food immediately! We cruised the outdoor menus and both felt immediately compelled to order the french onion soup with comté crouton the sencond we read the words. It warmed us up perfectly! ❤️🇫🇷
When you’ve had a tiring day of work and are too hungry to decide what to buy from the supermarket... I’ve wanted to properly try Guidi’s in Airdrie for ages so today became that day. They bake their own bread every day and I have say, it was unbelievable! Chewy but soft and it tasted like heaven. So much so that we both had to unbutton our trousers to sit comfortably in the car on the way home 😂
