Lots happening right now on the Glasgow food news front.

The main news is that Church on the Hill and Tempura Kiro opened at the weekend.

Having closed for a refurb at the end of January, Church on the Hill re-opened quietly at the weekend ahead of its official launch party later this week.

The Southside venue is now under the ownership of Signature Pubs who also run The Raven, The Smokin' Fox and The Spiritualist in Glasgow.

A reported £650,000 has been spent on the refurb. The idea was to give the landmark building a more spacious, contemporary feel.

The food offer is completely new. Some dishes - such as the beer-glazed cauliflower - are very now. Others, like the beef and ale pie or the beer-battered fish and chips, will keep traditionalists smiling.

We'll be back with more info after the launch.

Glasgow food news: Tempura Kiro

Meanwhile, on Victoria Road in Govanhill, Tempura Kiro has opened for business.

If you have a hunger for hake tempura or feel the need for some crispy sweet potato, this new venue can provide.

It is a BYO place and currently opens on Friday evenings and all day from noon on Saturdays and Sundays.

Heading north of the Clyde, Mahony's Steakhouse in Bishopbriggs has joined 5pm Dining.

Located on Kirkintilloch Road, Mahony's may have steak in the title but it offers a much broader menu.

From pastas and risotto to a selection of burgers, pizza and fish dishes, there is plenty to chose from.

Of course, steak is the star of the show. You could order a 10oz rib-eye or go wild and pick a sharing steak like the 32oz tomahawk.

Mahony's Steakhouse can be booked via 5pm Dining. Make a reservation with 5pm Dining from Sunday to Thursday and you can enjoy a 20% discount on the a la carte menu.

As always, keep an eye on the 5pm food blog for the latest Glasgow food news.
