Smoak & Scoop’s Street Food Cartel Event – SWG3, Glasgow

 

 

 

 

Smoak Scoop Events Street Food Cartel Sign We have heard so much about Smoak that we had to go to this event.  So much buzz was created that an extra night was added.  Good quality, American style food has taken off in Glasgow with Smoak and Buddy’s opening in the past year.  Smoak seem to be taking the upper hand here with their purchase of a mobile van in order to take Smoak to the masses.

The SWG3 building was turned into a pop-up restaurant for two nights with both Smoak & Scoop’s food vans on-site.  Entry was £5 which included a free drink on arrival.

It was a bit creepy walking into a dark SWG3, but we soon found the sign inside, if you didn’t know SWG3 you’d be a little stumped tho as it was very quiet outside (perhaps more signage for newbies?).

We soon received our free cocktail, which came wrapped in a brown paper bag, which was fun, and delicious – Ginger Beer, Vodka and St Germain  I think.

Menu

The menu recommends 3 dishes per person, we ordered six dishes (but only received 5 but this was removed from our bill),

Smoak Scoop Events Street Food Cartel Butternut spring roll beetroot pesto, feta, toasted hazlenut dukkah
Butternut spring roll,

This was a big hit, creamy squash and feta with a zingy beetroot pesto.  Will have to find out how this pesto was made.

Sliders with  mini brioche with bourbon dripping sauce.  Tender, juicy chicken that dribbled everywhere.  Just what I imagined it would be.  Could’ve gone another one of these!

Crisp bacon, tender moist monkfish.  Loved the dinky size as monkfish can be a little bit too meaty.  Just the right size for sitting munching without the need for the plates and cutlery supplied.

Meaty and tender again, cooked perfectly with the Gremolata adding some spark to the braised meat.

Thick and creamy, not too cheesy and a bigger portion would have been good 😉

Very cheesy cheesecake so Mr M was chuffed.  The cranachan was more like an eton mess than Cranachan but still delish.

The food was delicious, if a little over priced and the wine mark up a little bit on the high side too however it was a great experience and we’d go again.
