With a date night to mark a celebration, only one thing will do – steak. So as I slowly make my way around Glasgow’s never-ending food scene, I decided we should visit one of the classic spots for a steak.  Butchershop Bar & Grill on Sauchiehall Street.  Neither of us had ever been so excitement levels were high.

Cafe Strange Brew eggs

Cafe Strange Brew, Glasgow

1109 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, G41 3YG

My trip to Cafe Strange Brew was long overdue.  But I am a city centre girl, so hopefully the distance makes it a little more forgivable. I can’t quite remember where I heard about the Cafe, but it was fresh in my mind after their collaboration with El Perro Negro in July. They’re always cropping up on Glasgow blogs so I assume I read about it somewhere else too…

Topolabamba, Glasgow

89 St Vincent Street, Glasgow, G2 5TF

My third visit to Topolabamba and still as impressive as ever. I guess you could describe it as Mexican-style tapas, with some larger dishes for the hungrier customer.  We visited the restaurant around 8.30pm on a Saturday and only waited around 20-25 minutes for a table (despite being told it would be 45).  Having the table wait cut in half was definitely a good start.

Smoke BBQ, Glasgow

2 West Regent Street, Glasgow, G2 1RW

So I don’t normally check out new chain restaurants in Glasgow, purely because I like supporting local restaurants and kitchens. But between the social media praise and the real-life recommendations, I really wanted to pay this place a visit.  So June’s date night took us to a Saturday evening booking around 7pm to Smoke BBQ on West Regent Street.

Papercup Coffee, High Street, Glasgow

274 High Street, Glasgow, G4 0QT

Anyone who knows Papercup Coffee will probably be familiar with their Great Western Road location – one which I have never actually visited. So when I saw they were opening a city centre location in May, the prospect of another new regular coffee haunt in my ‘hood was exciting.  I finally popped in last week to sample their coffee and, of course, their cakes.

19 Great Eastern Street, London, EC2A 3EJ

I can’t explain how much I love visiting street-style food markets for dinner (or any meal to be fair but I’ve only ever gone to this kinda thing at night!).  Between the choice of food and the almost-guaranteed great atmosphere there’s just no going wrong.  So today I’m posting some snaps from Dinerama in Shoreditch.  Dinerama is one of the four food markets under the Streat Feast London umbrella.  Dinerama is in Shoreditch, Hawker House in Southwark, Model Market in Lewisham and Dalston Yard in Dalston.

If you’re in need of some good coffee and fancy going somewhere new, head south down to The Briggait where you’ll find the Dear Green Pop Up.  I made my first visit here last year around October, and they’re opening their doors again Friday-Sunday for the rest of summer.

Hutchesons – WWW.HUTCHESONSGLASGOW.COM
158 Ingram St, Glasgow G1 1EJ

Each month I try and visit at least one new restaurant in Glasgow, in an attempt to make the most of the fact I live in the city centre.  When you find somewhere amazing it’s so easy to fall into a delicious foody rut, so as of January 2015 we committed, and have visited somewhere new every month. We finally, FINALLY went to Hutchesons on Ingram Street.

5-7 Gordon St , Gordon Lane, G1

In case you haven’t wandered down Gordon Street in a while, you should definitely go take a peek at Gordon Lane and see what’s popped up.  Next to Bier Halle you’ll spot the yellow sign for Laneways – a 9 month pop-up bar/kitchen which started in April this year. Before I get into the Supper Club event, here’s a quick description of Laneways from their Facebook:

“Laneways is a 9 month project bringing together the best street eats, back street cocktails & street art collectives the Glasgow pop scene has to offer.”

35 Old Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G3 8RD

So a few weeks ago when it was like a real life summer in Glasgow, Rick and I went for a walk (as we always do) to catch some rays.  And now said rays have (inevitably) disappeared I thought I’d reminisce about the time we stopped into Tantrum Doughnuts at random and treated ourselves to our first Tantrum experience.

Best Burger Ever: El Perro Negro, Glasgow

El Perro Negro
https://twitter.com/perronegroglas

Yes, I said it.  The elusive pop up kitchen that is El Perro Negro makes me the best burger I have ever eaten a few times a year at his pop-ups in Glasgow. I don’t know a whole lot about the backstory of El Perro Negro other than what I’ve read online, but you can find a bit more info about the chef himself on James Vs. Burger (he has a more recent review of the last kitchen takeover too if you want to take a look).  I think he had one pop-up at Bloc on Bath Street, and for the past two years he’s been taking up residency in Brewdog’s kitchen on Argyle Street, satisfying the burger needs of the Glasgow population.  Good beer + best burger = happy days.
