Burgerology: Bloc+

Bloc+ was one of the very first restaurants we tried when we moved to Glasgow. Every weeknight, they have a different special, so you’re almost certain to get something awesome without getting depressed about how much money you spent.

Tuesday is £3 burger night. How can you beat that? Their beef burgers are juicy and flavorful and served on a soft brioche bun. I pay a bit extra for cheese on mine. They come with crispy fries, making this an even better deal.

Geoff usually opts for the veggie burger and adds jalapeno. He says it’s pretty standard, but the price is right.

They also make a great white russian at the bar which makes me outrageously happy. 

If you want to splash out, Bloc+ has plenty of outrageous burgers and dogs. They also do a deal on pizzas during the week. Their poutine is pretty outstanding as well.

It’s a small restaurant/bar that becomes a rock venue at night. The atmosphere is laid back, but what makes it extra awesome is that when there’s not a band playing, their tvs are all showing The Food Network. I don’t have to look at sports while I eat my burger for once. I can watch Jamie Oliver or Ina Garten in the background. It makes me happier than it probably should.

If you haven’t eaten at Bloc+ yet, you should definitely check it out. There’s something for everyone, and something cheap every night of the week. Do it!

Eating Out: Osteria Del Tempo Perso

Eating Out: Osteria Del Tempo Perso

Osteria Del Tempo Perso has definitely become my favorite Italian restaurant in Glasgow. All the flavors are deep and rich. Every dish I’ve tried has been great. Plus, it’s located in the heart of the city centre, just off George Square, so it’s easy to access for a week night date or long lunch.

Osteria has the potential to be very expensive, but if you order off the set menu, it’s quite affordable, especially for the quality. Lunch is the best bargain if you can manage to get there on a weekday afternoon.

I’ve had many great dishes here, but my favorite is definitely the spaghetti bolognese. If a restaurant can’t make the basics outstanding, there’s no point in bothering with fancier dishes. The pasta is cooked absolutely perfectly, and the flavor developed in the sauce is deep and delicious. I never want to stop eating it.

Geoff had the lasagna this time. It’s layered with cheese and the same rich bolognese. It’s a classic done absolutely perfectly.

We also had dessert this time. They make a different version of ricotta cheesecake each day. We opted fr white chocolate this time, but they also had mango that day. This is a no-bake, fluffy confection. I dare you not to like it.

They also have a selection of wines by the glass or bottle, a few of which are quite affordable. 

I love simple Italian food, and Osteria Del Tempo Person does it perfectly. Go check it out. I promise, it’ll be awesome.

Sunday Brunch: Avenue Coffee

Sunday Brunch: Avenue Coffee

I used to be so spoiled living a mile outside a major tourist area where people want to spend every day brunching their hearts out. I didn’t realize how good I had it until I moved to the land of the full Scottish breakfast. Guys, I can’t do that much pork in one go. I mean, I love bacon, but it’s just not what I look forward to when I go out for breakfast.

Luckily, we found Avenue Coffee in the West End of Glasgow. In addition to a more traditional breakfast, they also have some lovely baked egg options, as well as pastries and what I’m sure is amazing coffee.

I got a fresh berry lemonade that was delightful. I’ve also had their chai latte, and it was awesome.

This time around, I ordered the French toast with bacon. It was crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside. I only wish there had been more maple syrup, but I think that’s an American thing.

Sunday Brunch: Avenue Coffee

Geoff got their version of a Scottish breakfast and absolutely loved it. It included Stornoway black pudding, a potato scone, both regular and chorizo sausage, and one of their lovely baked eggs. 

This place can be a bit crowded as it’s quite small and very popular. I recommend going early if you can, otherwise, you might end up squished upstairs on the mezzanine as we did on this day.

I think Avenue Coffee would also be a great place for an afternoon treat. I’ll definitely be going back.
