My week in food #5 (19-25 Feb)

I’m writing this a bit late because this week has been quite crazy. However, we had yet another week of good food which I thought was worth sharing with you. It started with some Buck’s Bar’s chicken wing Wednesdays, continued with a fantastic seven-course tasting menu at The Sisters and finished with an all you can eat sushi dinner on Friday at Yen’s.

Wednesday – Dinner @ Buck’s Bar

If you like chicken wings, burgers, liquor, rock’n’roll and a good collection of hot sauces, then… Buck’s Bar is the spot for you! When Buck’s Bar opened a couple of years back, I was quite excited to finally get a bar that serves delicious chicken wings in a variety of sauces. And the wings are good! They are big, juicy and saucy – just like they are supposed to be. There is a good variety of food on offer besides wings, so expect to find Buck’s delicious buttermilk or Nashville hot chicken, burgers, salads, waffle brunches and even vegetarian options! They are also great for entertainment – pub quiz, live music, burger and wing offers. For all the latest, check their website.

We had the Buffalo chicken wings and Big Leo’s Firewings with the chilli and coriander coleslaw, sweet potato fries and sweet and chilli chips. All the food was good, but we were a bit disappointed by the Firewings are they are meant to be really spicy and really weren’t. But I hear that they are changing the sauce to make them spicier, so I’ll look forward to that.

Price: £16 pp for a lot of wings, sides, and drinks | Will I go back? Yes, back anytime I need some spicy chicken wings in my life. | Where: 111 West Regent Street, Glasgow City Centre.

Thursday – 7-course tasting menu @ The Sisters Kelvingrove

The Sisters in Kelvingrove had a fantastic offer running in February for “Taster Thursdays” where they offered a delicious 7-course tasting menu for just £22.50 per person. I had heard very good things about the restaurant so this was a perfect opportunity to try it. The food was indeed delicious and included fantastic local produce, highlighting the very best of Scottish cuisine. The menu included scallops and black pudding, haggis with onion bhaji, a mushroom veloute, variation on fish and chips, highland benison, a chocolate and banana pudding and a delicious cheese board to finish off with.

The ambience at the restaurant was nice, with a classic interior. The staff were excellent and offered a fantastic service. The food was very good, especially considering the low price. I would recommend The Sister’s at Kelvingrove for when you are looking for some fine Scottish food on a very reasonable price, at a classic restaurant.

Price: £27 pp including drinks, which is just fantastic value for the food we had. | Will I go back? Yes, though Glasgow has a lot of really good fine dining restaurants which I’ve been more impressed with. Saying that, however, not many will be able to beat the value for money The Sisters offers for the fantastic quality of the food. | Where: 36 Kelvingrove Street, Glasgow

Friday – all you can eat sushi at Yen Oriental

Every so often, Yen Oriental in the Rotunda host a Sushi Night where you can eat and order all the sushi you can eat in the space of an hour and a half for just £12.95 per person.  The sushi is pretty good and you can wash it down with some of the nice cocktails they have on the menu. Outside of sushi, Yen’s offer a variety of Asia food so you can find some Japanese, Thai and Cantonese favourites on their menu. The only thing is that the service leaves a lot to be desired. It was hard to get anyone’s attention and when we did they weren’t the friendliest.

Price: £12.95 pp for the sushi night | Will I be back? I would probably attend more of their sushi nights in the future! | Where: 28 Tunnel Street, Glasgow

I hope that my weekly posts are giving you plenty of inspiration of where to go and eat and about in Glasgow! Let me know if you go to any of these restaurants!
