Review: Ubiquitous Chip
8-12 Ashton Lane, Glasgow West End G12 8SJ
We were sitting on the mezzanine which I totally love - and were tucked away in a corner near the bar so it was like having dinner in a lush oasis with no one else around! For starters I had the Highland crowdie gnocchi with wild garlic pesto which was so light and fresh, just delicious. I asked the waitress for her opinion about the mains as I was torn between two and I really appreciated her advice, so I went for the pigeon breast with smoked potatoes, creamed cabbage and pea veloute. Whatever the sauce was with the pigeon was totally amazing and I loved this dish so much that I'd go back especially to eat it. I mean, even the creamed cabbage was amazing and who likes cabbage?
I was on such a high after these two dishes that I even had dessert - chocolate and olive oil cake. This was so beautiful and I actually felt like I couldn't eat it for a moment. But of course I did. It was total heaven, not too rich and just lovely with the raspberry sorbet.
Service is warm and friendly - not pretentious at all. I really love it here and always feel so cosy and relaxed. I can't wait to go back!
