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.

If you’re looking for some inspiration for brunch or breakfast in London, I’ve got you covered.  I’ve rounded up five places dotted around the city with varying menus (yet I always order the eggs…) and budgets.  Enjoy.

Papercup Coffee, High Street, Glasgow

Papercup Coffee – www.papercupcoffee.co.uk
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.

Dinerama, Shoreditch, London

Dinerma, Streat Feast – www.streatfeast.com
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.

Supper Club, Laneways, Glasgow

Laneways – WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/LANEWAYSCOLLECTIVE
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.”

Tantrum Doughnuts, Glasgow

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.

Brunch: Bankeråt, Copenhagen

Bankeråt – http://www.bankeraat.dk/
Ahlefeldsgade 27-29, 1359 København K

While in Copenhagen in December last year, we were on the hunt for somewhere to eat/escape the rain for a couple of hours. Totally in the mood for brunch (when am I not…), we came across Bankeråt in our research (and by research, I mean a quick Google search of “brunch in Copenhagen”).

Trans Europe Cafe

25 Parnie St, G1 5RJ

So a brunch date to the Trans Europe Cafe happened.  I’d been wanting to visit for a while, ’cause I feel like the Cafe holds some kind of reputation for being an ideal casual/delicious brunch spot in the city centre.

CAU Glasgow

WWW.CAURESTAURANTS.COM
222-224 Ingram St, Glasgow, G1 3BX

Last weekend Rick and I made our first visit to CAU, Glasgow.  Their Glasgow restaurant opened up a few months ago I think, and being settled in the beaut of a building I walk past every day was really ramping up the temptation.  I originally wanted to go for brunch (sweet potato and chorizo hash – hello) and Rick wanted to go for Sunday roast, but we happened to miss both… So dinner it was.
