WIN Christmas Giveaway Day 1 – Antipasti Platter for Two at Billington’s of Lenzie

Find out about Billingtons of Lenzie and WIN

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).

Billingtons of Lenzie bbc good food show

They have just launched a new website where you can buy all sorts of goodies from beer to wine to macarons.  A handy section for Christmas is their Hampers & Gifts page.  Billington’s staff will make bespoke hampers or you can order them online.  As the wee meerkat says, simples!

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!)
