Brutti Ma Buoni, Brunswick Hotel, 106 Brunswick Street, Glasgow

Situated in the Brunswick Hotel, Bruitti Ma Buoni (Ugly but good in Italian) is a laid back and cooly decorated bar. It has a varied menu, tapas, daily specials as well as folk just in for a coffee and a natter. The specials sounded inviting so we plumped for Chicken, coconut thai soup, smoked mackeral pate, bruitti burger and Smoked haddock lasagne. Soup was tepid, pate was good, burger wasnt anything too special and the lasagne was burnt at the bottom, filled with tomato puree and dry haddock. I used to like it in here, won’t be rushing back or if I do go back sticking to the coffee 🙁
