This was our second stay in cool Glasgow, so we knew our way around the alleys and knew some delicious food places already. We tried a lot of new cafe’s/restaurants as well. How do I begin…well as they say ladies first!
Glasgow restaurants and cafe’s
Two Fat Ladies - This time it was the branch in West End we had to try out (last the one in the city centre). Both times so delicious, the best seafood ever! Our waiter was the friendly manager; Laura and the talented chef; Jonathan who did his magic alone in the kitchen. The place is tiny, cosy and intimate. This time we where to full of lovely food and good red wine, so we had to miss out on their desserts – they make the best sticky toffee pudding in whole UK! (we have tried a few, second is The Orchard in Edinburgh).
Once Upon a Tart cafe – First we had coffee here and a huge apple pie with ice cream. It tasted so good and was close to a design shop we wanted to talk to, so had lunch there afterwards. Lovely food, huge coffees and with wall art and photo art.
The Sisters – Nice restaurant close to Kelvingrove Art Gallery. We went there last year and it was a sea food treat, but still the Two Fat Ladies win. There is a cool bar underneath Big Slope with antlers on the wall.
Berits & Brown – In Merchant City. Sweet little delicatessen and wine shop. We had a tasty lunch here last time visiting Glasgow, so had to mention it. There even is a indoor market just across the street in a gorgeous building.
Discovered but untried until next time
Trans Europe – The funkiest and well done retro concept I have seen for a while (and the Ruffians concept of course). I talked to the nice waiter and chef, so friendly and promised them to send this blog link, I will. Next time lunch.
Ubiquitous Chip – Got it recommended in a way, the verdict are a bit bland: “posh”, “expensive”, “cool space” and “great food” – so have to try it out for ourselves. The place looks good on-line. Time will tell.
Saramago Cafe Bar at CCA – We tried the Terrace Bar instead which is in the same building. But look this space…its amazing, like an outside garden with the light bulbs. Lucky students and Glasvegans.
Hope I got you tempted to visit Glasgow and its many delicious food places (plus all the establishments I don’t know off…yet). There is something for every taste, next I will dig in the vegetarian and vegan taste pellet and see what Glasgow has to offer.
