Hungry for the latest Glasgow food news round-up?
We have a lot to get through so tuck in:
First up Mezzidakia opened its doors on St Vincent Street on Friday.
As per our previous blog, the menu is a mix of Turkish, Lebanese, Moroccan and Greek dishes.
Look out for Lebanese dolmas; pide or Turkish pizza; falafel and Greek gyros.
We’re impressed by the fact that they serve eight different types of kebab from a Turkish Adana variety to Lebanese kafte kebabs.
Glasgow food news: Nonya
Towards the end of November, we mentioned that a new Malaysian place was coming together on Claremont Street in Finnieston.
We knew it was called Nonya but not much more than that.
The good people at Dram magazine have more info. Apparently, it is being built in the former Scullery premises.
The upstairs restaurant will have a 50 cover dining room centred around an open kitchen. A menu of pan-Asian food is planned. Downstairs will house a small cocktail bar.
The plan is to open before Christmas.
Glasgow food news: Honu
A hop, skip and a jump from Finnieston, we find Honu on Dumbarton Road.
Formerly The Pacific Canteen and The Pacific Tiki bar before that, Honu is now under new ownership and is repositioning itself a little.
Look out for pan-Pacific region dishes. This means a menu that ranges from Korean chicken bites to bowls of poke – Hawaii’s answer to sushi.
Adventurous diners can say ‘Aloha’ to the sweet chix waffle. This is a mix of fried chicken, hazelnut ice cream, blueberry-infused maple syrup and blueberries with skinny fries.
It sounds very confusing. However, we have heard that it actually delicious. We imagine that the first person to eat an oyster must have had similar mixed feelings.
You can book in to Honu via 5pm Dining.
Fault and Blame Big Deal
Finally, this blogger found himself in Fault and Blame in the city centre on Saturday night.
It is a low key basement bar and diner on West Regent Street.
As we have repeated many times, the 5pm Dining blog doesn’t do reviews. However, we will point out that they have an enticing menu which works well for vegans, veggies and meat-eaters.
The staff are lovely and the playlist will please anyone who has a soft spot for bands like Weezer, Pavement and Rocket from the Crypt.
And, as it turns out, we have a Big Deal with Fault and Blame which is valid until the end of December.
£15 will buy a two course meal for two people. This blogger recommends it.
