Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

The mother of all curries? A name that gets heralded around as one of the city’s top restaurants (let alone Indian restaurants) in Glasgow is Mother India. The UK does such a good job of producing such smashing curries, in part to its long history […]

Ichiban Noodle Bar, Glasgow

Ichiban Noodle Bar, Glasgow

Ichiban means number one in Japanese. And Ichiban Noodle Bar might just be number one for Japanese food in Glasgow! It was one of our dinner stops for a wild night in the city (in terms of stuffing our faces). Originally established in 1998 the […]

The Wilson St Pantry, Merchant City, Glasgow

The Wilson St Pantry, Merchant City, Glasgow

I’m a little surprised this industrial-chic brunch venue doesn’t have more reviews and more hurrah. I mean on Zomato, there’s lots of good vibes on Tripadvisor, Facebook and Google. Our group of friends enjoyed our visit to The Wilson Street Pantry a lot. The food was simple, but effective and the service was positively smile-inducing.
