Four of us attempted to share a 24 inch sharing pizza with three different toppings - veggie, bang bang chicken, and haggis. The pizza was superb but way too much for just four people, it could easily have fed six of us.
After our late pizza lunch we headed up to the Princes Square and had some cocktails at the roof grazing October. I think the bar used to be called November... Cocktails here start at about £6 but are delicious. We sat in a booth outside/inside (outside the bar but under the glass roof of the Princes Square) but the bar itself is also very nice to sit at, and very blue/purple.
This week Rockin' Roy and I also went to St. Louis Cafe Bar where our friend Fabulous Freya works. Her other half and our friend Dapper Doug visits so often he has two off-menu items named after him - both absurd meat feast burgers. One is call the 'Doug' and one the 'El Doug'. I can't remember exactly how they go but it's something like burger topped with chorizo, topped with pulled pork, topped with bacon... you get the idea, less of a meal than a dare. I went for the regular menu Pulled Pork Brioche. That is one satisfying sandwich. All the food here is excellent and the bar is well stocked with many of my favourite poisons. My only problem is that it's in the West End (Partick) not the Southside. Rockin' Roy thinks we should move on the basis of this bar (and our friends that live near it) but that's how nice the bar is. We would be heavy regulars if we lived near enough.
We're back to being fairly skint but next up on our eating and drinking adventures are two more of my voucher buys - Sloans pub for some gourmet Mac N Cheese and Cafe Cossachok. I am indescribably excited about going to Cafe Cossachok, it's been on my to go list for years but the opportunity hasn't arisen until now in the form of yet another Itison voucher! I'm more or less doing all of my socialising via vouchers these days. We haven't booked these yet but mon' the Russian dining experience!
