Restaurant offers

restaurant tableSorry for keeping quiet for some time – a lot of things has happened since, but I couldn’t miss out on sharing this information with you. I’ve moved from being staying-in is the new going out – back to going-out person again. Swapping takeaway meals to a proper restaurant food. Food is food and takeaways ain’t that bad and it’s cheaper you may say. Yes, 90% of the time I’d agree, but there’s plenty of good restaurant offers out there to be spoiled. What most of us don’t notice is that restaurants these days are hungry for business. Did you see news coverage about what happened during Olympics? London 2012 was almost like a small disaster for restauranteurs – the places were empty – near deserted – people were avoiding London. Some of us, like me for example, found this like a blessing from the sky – no need to book a table – lots of good deals and offers around.  Were you also one of the people who enjoyed it?

The best food takeaways in Glasgow

March 25, 2010 1 comment

GlasgowThe present site of Glasgow has been used since prehistoric times for settlement due to it being the forded point of the River Clyde furthest downstream, which also provided a natural area for salmon fishing. The origins of Glasgow as an established city derive ultimately from its medieval position as Scotland’s second largest bishopric.

The Glasgow electoral region of the Scottish Parliament covers the Glasgow City council area, the Rutherglen area of the South Lanarkshire and a small eastern portion of Renfrewshire.

The city centre is bounded by the High Street to the east, the River Clyde to the south and the M8 motorway to the west and north which was built through the Townhead, Charing Cross, Cowcaddens and Anderston areas in the 1960s.

The West End includes residential areas of Hillhead, Dowanhill, Kelvingrove, Kelvinside, Hyndland, and, to an increasing extent, Partick. However, the name is increasingly being used to refer to any area to the west of Charing Cross. This includes areas such as Scotstoun, Jordanhill, Kelvindale  and Anniesland.
