Nature’s Path Making Gluten-free Taste Amazing

My go-to breakfast option to kick-start the day has forever been cereal – I am a regular buyer of cereal boxes of different types, granola products and cereal bars. So, when the team at Piracy Corporation contacted me with the opportunity to try some products from Nature’s Path, I was intrigued. The main reason why…

Casual Darts @ The Raven

We were invited along to The Raven for the launch party of their new darts game area, on Thursday 14th of November. We’ve always really liked the food and the atmosphere at The Raven, so I jumped at the chance to accept the invitation! Having read in advance a little bit about what they came…

Pavement, Merchant City

Did you know the term bao bun is actually incorrect? Fun fact: bao means bun, so it’s kind of redundant, right? Somehow, however, this is how they are well-known in the UK. The original name seems to be Gua Bao, and I’ve read they are also known as Taiwanese hamburgers. The ever-enlightening source of Wikipedia…

Nuku Nuku on Hope Street

On a mid-weekend we were craving something a little different, we ventured down to Nuku-Nuku, a little restaurant on Hope Street serving Japanese inspired food. The place is modern and has a warm feeling to it with some cute origami cranes hanging from the ceiling and fairy lights. Apparently Nuku Nuku means something like “warmly”…

Halloumi

We have visited Halloumi several times, we have been to both venues in Glasgow – City Centre and Southside, and we have taken family and friends with us. That’s how much we love it! The Halloumi restaurants inside have a lovely mediterranean decor, which feels quite relaxing with its blue tones and chic interiors. The…

Red Onion

Here’s our review for Red Onion, on 257 W Campbell St, Glasgow G2 4TT. This place combines classic Scottish food with some international twists. The menu isn’t too large, but it does seem to have a good range of different meats – duck, chicken, beef, fish, plus a number of veggie options. Inside, the place is big,…
