Long gone are the days of deep-fried Mars Bars and exclusively fast food restaurants lining Glasgow's high streets, Glasgow's food scene has undergone a revolution in the past decade. With unprecedented independent bars and eateries popping up like mushrooms, Glaswegians are challenged more than ever to step out of their culinary comfort zones. These restaurants defy the ordinary in more ways than their menus. Many of these restaurants strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible, attracting a growing number of eco-conscious people.

Eco-friendly restaurants are shaking up the restaurant industry. In recent years, sustainability has been somewhat of a trend. People far and wide are now much more conscious of what they are eating, where it has come from and whether it was produced sustainably. In order to attract this growing number of eco-conscious customers, restaurants must do all they can to prove they are doing their bit.

The Ultimate Guide to Discount Dining in Glasgow!

It's fair to say that Glasgow's food scene used to be little more than deep fried Mars bars and bland, beige dishes. There was a lack of adventure and experimentation when it came to the food scene; people clearly feared the unknown, and stuck to the food they knew and loved. That was until around five years ago when Glasgow underwent a food revolution that has been seen across many a major city in the UK. People wanted something new. 

This food revolution began in the student-heavy West, where young people were constantly looking for something new to try. Restaurants have been constantly popping up like mushrooms ever since, and there doesn't seem to be any sign that it's slowing down! With a whole host of recognisable chains and quirky independent restaurants, there's something for everyone in Glasgow's food scene.

How Employee Data is Linked to Business Success

Posted by Laura Springer on Mar 15, 2019 10:07:39 AM

data article

 

It’s no secret that HR departments across the world are sitting on data treasure troves with the potential to inform the direction of the business if opened and used correctly. Data is any HR’s most important asset. It can be used to improve decision-making, make employees happier and optimise processes no matter how ingrained they are. Basically, it can add a colossal amount of value to any company if utilised intelligently. This claim can be made because data is at the heart of every decision a business makes; if analysed correctly, past mistakes can be avoided, and the future of the business can be shaped. Rather than employing the hamster wheel effect of repeating set processes that are tried and tested, why not use data and analytics to pave a new path in your business, especially considering the evolution of businesses in this digital age.

5 Simple Ways to Boost Employee Wellbeing

Posted by Laura Springer on Feb 28, 2019 12:00:23 PM

employee wellbeing

Sir Richard Branson has been one of the most outspoken advocates for nurturing a great company culture and the benefits it has for employers and employees alike. He believes, “Take care of your employees and they’ll take care of your business. It’s as simple as that”, encouraging the importance of fostering employees and how it is the best investment a business could make. Everyone knows that a successful company is built by talented, dedicated employees (even the word ‘company’ is etymologically linked to ‘people’). With the average UK worker spending over 82,000 hours at work over the course of their lifetime, it’s critical that these labour hours are nurtured. In recent years, companies are gradually learning to acknowledge this statistic, rather than deny its existence, and what it means for their business if those 82,000 hours are spent wisely. Studies after studies demonstrate the causal link between a boost in employee wellbeing and productivity; something every business constantly needs to improve.

The Ultimate Guide to Discount Dining in Manchester!

According to the dreamy Fred Sirieix (the French guy from First DatesFred-sirieux), Manchester is the food hub of the North West. With more restaurants, food markets and food festivals than ever before, it's not all that surprising that budding restaurateurs choose Manchester as their home. The food scene is incredibly varied from the independent eateries and coffee shops of the Northern Quarter, fine dining restaurants of Deansgate and the well loved chain restaurants of the Corn Exchange, there's a lot on offer here. I honestly believe it would take years to eat your way through all the restaurants here (I have lived here for five years, believe me, I've tried!)

Alma de Cuba

Posted by The Greedy Cow on Oct 16, 2018 12:07:38 PM

So what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than in a church converted into a restaurant, enjoying a Sunday Lunch whilst listening to live Gospel music… Well that is exactly what you can do at Alma de Cuba’s ever popular Gospel Sunday Brunch, each Sunday between 1-6pm.

The Gospel Sunday Brunch has been part of Alma de Cuba’s weekly ‘What’s On’ for many years now and still hasn’t lost its charm. We arrived on a cold autumn day to be warmed not only by the food & drink but by the atmosphere too. The bar was quiet when we arrived and we made our way upstairs to the restaurant. Welcomed by oversized chandeliers and burning candles, Alma does Hygge without even trying to, which is perfect as the days shorten and nights get longer.

Although it was a school night, we opted for the Pinot Grigio from Chile. A wine from Chile is always my fall back and best tip for anyone who isn’t a connoisseur of wine lists. As the wine was poured the Gospel singers began. Expect soulful classics like ‘I’ll be There’ and R-Kelly’s ‘I believe I can fly’ mixed in with Gospel Choir and songs straight out of Sister Act. The band position themselves right on the old Church alter which is perfect for those Instagram pics.

We passed on starters and went straight for the Beef Sunday Roast. Now Alma de Cuba don’t just do Sunday Roasts, they do one of the best Sunday Roasts in the city. Oversized Yorkshire pud, thick slices of beef with all the trimmings and a delicious red wine gravy. Although the food was delicious, we both struggled to finish our plates. Not a bad thing at all!

After a good break between courses to let our lunch settle, we opted for the Chocolate Brownie with a kick of chilli. I’m not a big fan of spice, especially in my dessert, but it worked! The brownie was flaky and soft, topped with ice cream and presented perfectly with drizzles of caramel. Be warned though it does have a kick to it!

The whole afternoon was wrapped up perfectly whilst the Gospel band finished on ‘Oh Happy Day’. What an absolute classic to sum up how we were feeling after a great afternoon at Alma de Cuba. With winter around the corner, Sunday Brunch at Alma is definitely your perfect winter warmer!

La Finca Eivissa

Posted by The Greedy Cow on Jul 25, 2018 3:03:18 PM

With just around 6 weeks until my long-awaited return to the White Isle, it was a no brainer to make La Finca Eivissa my next venture as part of the Table Now Professional Eater experience. This place oozes all things Ibiza with an almost hippy, happy-go-lucky vibe and is nestled in between some of Liverpool’s busiest nightlife spots. A bit of a sea of tranquility amongst all the madness outside, especially on a Saturday night, as it was when I visited.

Thanks to the barmy summer we are having, the temperatures were high and windows and doors of the restaurant were all wide open with people enjoying drinks semi-al fresco with chilled Ibiza beats playing in the background.

The team at La Finca were great as always… greeted at the door and taken to our table on the upper floor, we had a window seat to watch the world go by. First up, it wouldn’t be right to go for tapas without enjoying a jug of Sangria. Here you can mix and match ingredients to make your own. I went with a red wine base, apples & oranges mixed with cranberry & orange juice, topped with lemonade for that extra fizz. The result was amazing!

On to the tapas, we went for honey glazed chorizo, bruschetta, ham and cheese croquettes and a couple of specials. The specials board is updated regularly here so never stick to just the menu! We went for the sweet chilli chicken wings which melted off the bone and were absolutely delicious. The next special is not a special per se as it isn’t on the specials board, however it deserves a special mention as such. The Mama Mia fries, topped in cheese and albondigas are definitely worth a go! Leave the Ibizan diet aside and give these a whirl!

To top the night off the Ibizan diet was completely forgotten about as we opted for the chocolate brownie and ice cream. Wow! What a brownie!

One final jug of Sangria and a move to one of the infamous ‘beds’ to enjoy the music was a perfect ending to our Saturday night. It is no wonder this place has been consistently in the Top 5 restaurants in Liverpool on TripAdvisor recently. Whether you want to get in the mood for your upcoming Ibiza holiday or whether you have got those post-Ibiza blues, this place is the perfect pick-me-up!
