Yaay finally Ciaran and I had a Saturday off together with zero plans soooo its CHRISTMAS MARKET TIMEEE!!! How Exciting!
Every morning en route to work I’ve had to walk through/past the St Enoch Christmas Market on my way to the subway. And every morning my thoughts have been how much longer until I can get in my full Christmas mood, wander about in cosy clothes drinking a Mulled Wine or a Spiced Plum Cider and taste all kinds of market food!
So yes, as its finally here, I am buzzing!
Here are some pictures of what we got up to last Saturday Night…
Last month Ciaran and I decided to treat ourselves to a Sunday date night and as usual head to our current favourite restaurant… Six By Nico.
I’m a bit late in getting round to posting this! By the time my post is live they will no longer be serving this theme, but I thought why not share it anyways!
As per the food and service was fab!
So without further ado let me introduce you to the last Six By Nico theme…
Prosecco | Creme de Mure
The first weekend in November my Other Half and I took a trip up to the North East of Scotland to visit his family. It was a fun filled long weekend consisting of plenty walks, food and of course booze…
While we were there my boyfriend put his cocktail making skills to the test. And he came up with a couple drinks to suit both mine and his aunties tastes.
His auntie is not much of a cocktail drinker as she only likes wine. But, this was just a fun little challenge for my partner as he rattled off a wine cocktail recipe he made up on the spot!
If you want a sneaky wee peek at what this contains and how to make, keep reading…
My second foodie blog post. And this one, once again, is all about Six By Nico…
I know what you’re thinking, a bit of a reoccurring theme here, but honestly I cannot fault the place! It’s fine dining at such an affordable price. The atmosphere is perfect. The service is top class. And the work put behind each change in menu theme is ingenious.
This visit the theme is Illusion. Which as my boyfriends mum described, has a very Heston Blumenthal vibe to it.
For an extra £25 each we also added the wine flight which is perfectly matched to compliment each dish.
I’m not going to lie, I struggled to keep up! Which is why when the accompaniment to course 4/6 was a beer I happily passed this over to my other half!
Saturday 12th August
Today we ventured out towards Finnieston to finally experience the greatness that is SIX BY NICO. This is not your regular restaurant with its seasonal menu, no, Six by Nico has a themed menu which lasts 6 weeks and is then gone and replaced with a completely new theme all over again! Fab, right?!
And we had the pleasure of trying ROUTE 66…
CRISP TART | TRAPANESE PESTO | GOATS CHEESE | OLIVE TAPENADE
