Babu Bombay Kitchen, 186 West Regent Street, Glasgow




Babu is one of those places where you have heard a lot about it, but never quite get around to going to.  You should make that trip.   The owner is funky, fun and knows her grub.




The inside is deconstructed decor (lights made out of graters) and street posters around.  Liked this look a lot, nice and clean too.



The Menu can be found HERE

Babu_Bombay_ThumbsSome Indian “ginger”, thums up, which was like Cola but not quite.



This was a Garlic Chilli Chicken, Huge and I mean HUGE  chunks of tender, moist chicken.  A nice kick to the sauce, not too hot but hot enough for a tingle.

Curry Pot £ 5.50

Homemade ‘curry of the week’ served with rice/bread & a side dish.
Choose from:

Chicken or Veggie (VG) curry

Choose your from:
Fragrant basmati rice
or Morton rolls butter toasted

Add one side dish:
Tamarind carrot  / Bombay Slaw / Onion Pickle / Cucumber Raita


Bacon Chapatti Wrap £3.50

Smoked bacon, red onion & lettuce topped with our green chilli & coriander mayo wrapped in a chapatti.  I didn’t get a chance to try this, Mr Williams wolfed it down and I didn’t hear any words apart from mmmm.   He was very happy with this.


Tiffin boxes from Babu are available in Tinderbox too if you don’t make it up to the shop.  It’s well worth the visit for the food and some chat from the owner.

We love Billington’s.  Its a foodie tardis, with a cosy seating area at the front of the shop serving everything from brunch to cocktails (menu here) and they have cold meats, baking, chocolates, ice cream and a tempting selection of craft beers (even Mr Foodie finds beers here he hasn’t tried!)  speciality spirits and fine wines. In fact, it has everything you need.  Hence our love (and the staff are all lovely as well).

Today\’s prize is a meal for two at Bella Napoli

Located in the heart of Shawlands, Bella Napoli has been around forever, but it\’s not one of those jaded Italian restaurants. Owner Domenico obviously loves his bling and style. Have you seen their 24K Gold covered pizza oven?

The restaurant is in two parts with the front area containing cosy booths, bar area as well as take-away area. (try stopping yourself buying some of the cakes to take home!)
