As I mentioned in my first post about the Scullery, as soon as I went back to eat at the Scullery and paid for my meal I would do a full blow property Geek review. I didn’t have to wait long to fulfil this promise, just 7 days later found me sitting back at the same table enjoy a beautiful lunch with one of my favourite ladies, Briony the lovely Community Manager of Yelp Glasgow…or as I like to think of her Lady Briony of Yelp.
In truth my lunch which Briony could not have come as a better time, I had quite a crappy week and can really feel the pressure of the renovation weighing heavily on my shoulders. I really needed to have my spirits revived and to just totally forget about plumbing, plastering and grade B listed buildings and there is no one better to achieve such a feat than B. So, it was with much excitement I marched down to Scullery to try a spot of lunch.
My opinion hasn’t changed about the decor from my original little write-up – here is a recap.
The decor at The Scullery is über cool laid back chic – exposed brick walls, nice seating and comfy chairs, cool mirrors and lighting, and loads of gorgeous natural light – basically it’s everything you want from a contemporary local hot spot in finnieston. I was also pleasantly surprised at how busy it was, as the day I visited was only their 3rd lunch service.
The service was fantastic, it felt slicker and more polished in the 7 days since my last visit. The girl who served us was lovely and chatty which I love.
From their lunch menu I decided to try the Pastrami, Swiss Cheese, Dill Pickle, Mustard and Mayo Sandwich with a side order of Scullery fries. I can only use 1 word to describe the sandwich – sensational! Now I know you may think that is a bit over the top for a sandwich, but I say don’t under-estimate how amazing a great sandwich can be, and this was a GREAT sandwich. The bread was light and fresh, the fillings were generous and flavoursome and it was seasoned to perfection. This was a sensational sandwich!
In my original post I commented that the hand cut skinny fries ‘looked slightly peely wally and soft’ not today tho they were larger, crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside….I mentioned this to them and they told us they were having a bit of a chip-off at the moment, I made it very clear that however they did them that day was a definite winner.
I couldn’t possibly leave without trying the Vegan Choc Orange Brownie again – just to make sure I was right in my initial assessment you understand 🙂 You’ll be pleased to hear it was just as delicious second time round and I stand by my original write-up describing it as dense, gooey, thick, warm and perfect!!
With my brownie I also tried the Hot Chocolate again, I mentioned in my original post that I hated the Hot Chocolate. The manager assured me she had done a wee investigation and the mistake was spotted and rectified. I had no option but to try it out again and I can confirm that it was amazing. Creamy, rich and luxuriously delicious – everything you want really from a lush hot choccy.
A lovely lunch and after my second visit I am even more sure that the Scullery is going to be one of my firm favourites.
