New restaurants in Glasgow: Nonya is now open.
It seems to have taken a little longer to launch than we first thought likely but Nonya officially opened its doors in Finnieston yesterday.
Offering South East Asian food and cocktails, the new restaurant and bar is on Claremont Street.
The premises were formerly occupied by The Scullery.
Alongside Asian-inspired cocktails, Nonya offers an intriguing range of dishes which will bring back memories for anyone who has visited Thailand, China or Malaysia.
The current menu is very flexible. There is a bar snack section and a selection of main dishes which can be ordered as small or large portions.
It is the sort of arrangement which means you could drop in for an after work drink and a snack or go with friends and share lots of dishes.
New restaurants in Glasgow: Nonya
Among the bar snack options are familiar choices like chicken wings.
More adventurous dishes might be the deep fried cashew nuts with lime leaves and chilli or the spring onion pancake with coconut chicken gravy.
There is also a range of satay skewers. Choose between pork neck, chicken thigh or chicken hearts.
Among the main courses are fish options such as the whole mackerel with three dipping sauces. More veg-oriented choices include the green papaya salad and the gado gado – tofu, egg and vegetables in a peanut sauce.
Of course, there is a chicken curry. If you want to venture investigate a little further from the most well travelled culinary paths, you could order up the ox heart laab, a sort of chopped salad from northern Thailand.
Before the official opening, Nonya was whetting appetites with pictures of dishes such as Balinese style pork satay and nasi lamek.
The 5pm Dining blog wishes Nonya every success.
