23 Sandyford Place, Glasgow West End G3 7NG
Yasss - I've got to say, I really, really love the new McPhabbs. See, I was a fan beforehand but now it's had a refurb and it is looking really slick and lovely. The team behind Finnieston favourite Firebird recently took over so the place has seen quite a lot of changes.
Out the front there's new seating which I know will be lovely in the warm weather (when it arrives). Inside is a lot lighter and brighter - I love the colours and there is some really funky embossed wallpaper going on too. They've updated the food menu and seriously, I want to eat it all. But more on that in a minute. The bar menu has changed too so the beers and wine are now a bit cheaper - old McPhabbs had oddly expensive booze but it's nice to see the prices come down. When does that ever happen?
Ok, so the food menu. I love this menu and was really excited by everything, but I have to admit I've had the same dish twice now because I loved it that much.
Soft. Shell. Crab. Burger.
Oh my days. It is as good as it sounds and that's without me telling you that it also has kimchi (spice punch!) and avocado (soothing deliciousness) on it too. It is seriously so good. You need to eat it. At £11 it's at the pricier end of the burger scale but it does come with chips and it's crab! So you can't really complain.
Other things on the menu I plan on eating shortly are: beef short rib tacos, fontina mac cheese, Vietnamese summer rolls. There's also a tasty sounding sandwich selection.
There's another outside area out the back which is a nice little deck area and the function area downstairs has also seen some changes which I won't spoil for you. You need to go see yourself!
So yeh, I've got to say, I am a huge fan of the new McPhabbs and see myself visiting all the time.
