Food review: Turnip & Enjoy, Gt Western Road, Glasgow

@Turn up to turnip Turnip might not be your go-to comfort food, or the ingredient that's going to win you any awards but we did spot it twice on the menu here, and so, the place formally known as simply "Enjoy" has been prefixed with Scotland's national root vegetable - maybe this will be the
