Review: Bread Meats Bread, 104 St Vincent Street, Glasgow


Bread_Meats_Bread_WindowHandy location for “Bread Meats Bread” at the corner of Hope Street and St Vincent Street, but for a place called so called, and with a selection of (fake?) bread in the window none of us got offered a choice of bread.

  Bread_Meats_Bread_meal   Bread_meats_Bread_Chips

We tried the normal chips (£2) and Sweet Potato Chips (£2), both were fab.  Proper home made chips.  Very tasty.


Coleslaw (£1.50) was a bit disappointing, pretty dry and no oomph.


Pretzel bun, ok hot dog – was the verdict from Mr Beer £5 New York  Hot Dog.


Beef Cheesesteak on white £7. Again Ok, nothing woohoo about it. More steak/cheese i think and something else needed.


Pastrami Burger £7.  Mr Foodie had this one, OK again.  Did the job.  Big chunks of tough chewy pastrami and the burger wasn’t “ooh a posh burger”.

Slippy stairs to toilets, clean but a bit too bijou and the hand dryer takes a long time to dry your hands!

Not a large selection of drinks – no diet irn bru (eek!).

On street corner near to Central Station so it will do well.  Better than chain burgers but not massively impressed so it needs to be a bit better to beat the others. Total cost £24.50 for three.

TL:DR – OK, Burger Meats Bun has a much better burger.

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).

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!)
