EDIT: This is now The White Elephant
Scallops, black pudding and cherry tomato salad with mango and lime vinaigrette
Smoked haddock risotto with a warm poached egg and shaved parmesan
Gnocchi, braised onions, tomato, garlic, spinach, extra virgin olive oil
Five spiced rubbed pork belly, egg noodles, chillies and cashews
Where to start,
Smoked chicken that tasted like the sandwich style chicken out of a supermarket not smoked at all, overpowering balsamic vinegar.
Scallops were quite fishy tasting which overpowered the rest of the dish, bland black pudding did not blend well with the scallops. Couldn’t taste vinaigrette at all.
Pork belly was almost all fat, what meat there was was half dry and not moistened by the fat at all. Rather a large fatty piece. Noodles were drenched in sauce, which tasted like soy sauce and not a five spice sauce, one cashew as well!
Gnocchi were mushy and more like stodgy dumplings, onions were delish but overall the dish was poor.
Risotto was lovely!
No asking our opinon on any part of the meal, hot plates placed down without warning, when we complained about the meals the owner looked at us blankly. Offered us desserts which considering the quality of the other dishes we declined, we didn’t even want to try the coffee. Three courses inc a glass of wine.
Very bad meal, worst I have had in Glasgow, poor customer service and now I know why the car park was so empty!
