Review: 111 by Nico

Before I even start this post I need to apologise to all of you westenddazies. I have been a neglectful blogger recently and need a smack across the wrists. Life has run away with me recently and before I knew it I had not blogged for weeks (maybe even months). Anyway fear not I have continued to eat and explore in that time so I have many places to tell you about.

The first of which is the fabulous 111 by Nico, located in Clevedon Road in Glasgow’s west end. This is slightly off the normal beaten track for restaurants in the west end but well worth making a detour to it.

Review: Butchershop Bar and Grill

So sorry Westenddazies that I have been behind with my blog posts recently. Life has been a bit hectic.

We have been sticking to our clean eating (semi-)religiously and are feeling great for it. However, every so often we feel the need for a little treat. Dinner at the Butchershop Bar and Grill one rainy Tuesday filled this need and more, whilst not totally ruining the diet, which is a big plus. Situated across from Kelvingrove Museum the Butchershop Bar and Grill matches this prime position with great food, service and atmosphere.

A Buttery Review for Catch Restaurant in Giffnock

Colin and I are doing a clean eating challenge for the first 3 months of 2016, which is great by the way (but I will maybe share more of that later). After 3 weeks of not eating out we were hankering for a wee restaurant bite to eat. It may seem odd to you that we decided to go to Catch, a fish and chip shop and restaurant, in Giffnock.  However, after reading a Daily Record article from January which named Catch in its top 10 healthy eating restaurants for 2016, due to its grilled fish options we were willing to give it a try.

So how did Catch live up to the reputation awarded it by the Daily Record. Continue reading

Blythswood Square: A Christmas Treat

Blythswood Square Hotel, Glasgow, is one of my favourite places to go for a sneaky cocktail, a thermal spa (aaaand relax….) or food. So I was super excited to go the Sunday before Christmas for my birthday with my lovely hubby and family and boy did we enjoy it. As my 3 year old niece said “Today is all about food because it’s a birthday day” (I think she is going to take after her Auntie)…..

A Roasting Hot Review for Roasters Deli

My husband Colin has been counting the days for Roasters Deli in Partick to open. Situated at Partick tube station, this New York inspired deli, offering both sit-in and take-away has been creating a social media buzz about its opening since June. We spent 2 weeks in New York in January and loved the deli sandwiches, hence Colin’s mouth has been drooling every time he saw a tweet or facebook post about Roasters. So we rushed down on its 4th day of opening to sample some delights….
