On Thursday I popped along to Glasgow’s Oldest Bar & Restaurant Sloans for the launch of their new Street Food menu. I arrived a little late due to getting stuck on the M8 due to a bad traffic accident so missed the start of the food. How awful!
The menu features good ol’ comfort food dishes under two titles; Street Fries and Street Platters priced at £9.95 each. The dishes are meant for sharing but I’m pretty sure that if you were hungry, you could eat them yourself!
As I arrived, people were tucking into The Gringo (Beef Chilli, Cheese and Jalepenos) and The Stavros (Hummus, Falafel, Roast Veg, Olives and Flat Bread with Feta Cheese or Merguez Sausage) so I didn’t really get a chance to try them. I was told that they were really really good.
Next up The Mac Daddy (Cheesy Macaroni with Bacon or Onion Rings and Salsa) and The Cowboy (BBQ Chicken Wings and Ribs, Blue Cheese Dressing and Hot Sauce) were served. I loved The Cowboy for two reasons; hot sauce & finger licking BBQ Wings. It was everything I could want to comfort me on a rainy evening and I would gladly eat it again. The meat just fell off the bone and the Hot Sauce gave it a wonderful kick. Don’t be afraid of getting your hands dirty! I do wish it was hotter though, but that’s the spice addict in me.
I love the Mac & Cheese at Sloans, I’m a regular at the Scottish Macaroni Appreciation Club that they hold every month, I can’t get enough of it. The Mac Daddy did not disappoint. It is one of the best around in Glasgow. If you’ve never tried Sloans Mac & Cheese, you really should! I wasn’t a huge fan of the Salsa on top of the Mac & Cheese so would recommend getting the Onion Ring version.
The dishes are great value for money for the amount of food you receive and are very filling. So filling that I honestly felt like I went into a food coma after stuffing my face. It was probably due to the fact my eyes are always bigger than my belly. One of my flaws. It was just too good to say no to!
