It’s June and no one knows how that happened.
It’s also really (too) warm and the sun has been blasting all over Glasgow. I think everyone is feeling spoiled with all the good weather, but I just feel sweaty. It’s also my birthday month which means I also have to feel older and question virtually every life choice made leading up to this birthday. Right? Or I can just counteract all the sweat and emotions with treating myself all month long?
I’ll go with the latter… and one of those treats was lunch from Six by Nico.
Come with me and you’ll be…
Lately it’s getting a little harder to predict what is going to be the next big food fad in Glasgow.
Variety definitely makes for happy tummies but, if you’re like me, too much choice can be overwhelming— and since I feel like authentic Mexican or even decent Tex Mex is never going to happen, despite all my birthday wishes… let’s consider Korean!
Fermented, sour, pickly fun, tender meats, fried chicken and the joy of learning to pronounce new words. Sign me up- especially if it’s spicy (I think its supposed to be).

Well, we’re just over two weeks into 2018 which means I’m not entirely too late for a little 2017 wrap up post- am I?
I thought I would get back to blog posts a bit more this year. No, not like a resolution… more like a slightly more fun to do list? Yeah!
So, my top five food and drink discoveries of 2017 is basically a list of places that I should have blogged about (and still might) over the past year. Here are the rules: I’m staying local and the list is about new places I went to in 2017, not necessarily that opened in 2017.
In no order, of course.
Let’s get snacking!
For the past several months I’ve been eyeing up the the “coming soon” sign of ‘Babs – a place boldly claiming their “kebabs are done right”. The lure of charcoal-fired meat and soft, pillowy bread was too great; I was salivating every time I walked past.
And with it opening just a day ago (June 15th) I could finally pay the place a visit.
It’s brought to you by the team of the well-loved Bread Meats Bread, so I had some relatively high expectations for ‘Babs and here is how I got on.
Hoot the Redeemer might be my best accidental find.
A super kitsch basement bar serving up Technicolor alcohol in various ways.
Let us enter through the dark stairwell, led by Hoot himself into this boozy funfair.
Glasgow Gamers can finally bask in the bright lights and nostalgic sounds of old arcade cabinets… and all while enjoying a beer or two.
The long awaited Super Bario opened it’s ‘barcade’ doors on January 13th and seems to be the talk of the town already. The bar began as a Kickstarter project in late 2015 – hit their target and was projected to open almost a year ago in February 2016. Clearly some complications in the set up… but it’s now all systems go.
It’s now 2017 and I was so caught up/slightly tipsy through the holiday festivities that it was hard to find a moment to sit and type about all the food and fun being had.
I don’t feel like I can properly move into the new year without officially closing off 2016.
And there’s no better way to do that then a recap in list form!
So, here we go… My favourite new food findings of 2016.
It’s better late than never.
