Hello wonderful people! In my most recent YouTube vlog you will see Marco and I going out for dinner in Glasgow. Now to be fair we probably split our restaurant time 50/50 between vegan and non vegan restaurants. We love vegan restaurants of course but they tend to be dress down, very much chilled out, more bar/gig scene than dress up restaurants. That is why we venture out to non vegan restaurants that happen to cater VERY well for vegans as well as non vegans. In this week’s restaurant venture you will see us hit up a well known restaurant in Glasgow, Red Onion. Neither of us had visited before, mostly because we were unaware of the vegan menu on offer but boy we will be returning!
This is the type of restaurant you go to for a nice vegan meal, the fine dining type of experience. The kind you would get to dress up a bit to go along to, or the spot you would pick for an occasion dinner. It is a lot more “date night scene” than the typical vegan gig joint you find in Glasgow!
We had the pleasure of meeting the owner and head chef himself, a personal chef to none other than Bryan Adams over the years serving up vegan food to the star. Yes I know, it is pretty cool! Naturally we went for the vegan taster menu. A 6 course taster menu filled with the best flavour combinations known to my taste buds. Yes I am going to talk this restaurant up because the food was supreme. You can also order vegan items from the regular menu but I would highly suggest giving the 6 course taster menu a go! It was a totally different experience to anything Marco or I had ever had before.
You can see a copy of the menu above. My favourite 3 items out of the 6 had to be the “haggis” bon bons, the roast pumpkin tart and of course the brownies – duh. Every single course we had was honestly 10/10, absolutely delicious, full of fresh flavours and just simply divine. I honestly cannot recommend trying this menu out enough! Check out the restaurant website here for full info and to book a table for your next dining out venture, I promise you will not be disappointed!
