I was in Mother India's on Saturday night. First time I've been in years, and we got one of the 2 big tables upstairs (I only like the upstairs). Happy to report that the food was excellent, really top drawer. My smoked lamb and broccoli was exceptional.

Anyway, we finished the meal, paid and wandered downstairs. The waiter holds a hand out stopping us leaving and ushers 12 of us into the new room on the ground floor for complimentary ice-cream! It turns out that the Bungalow Cafe mentioned on here before (where Starvin' Marvin's used to be) is a venture by Mother India. They've bought the unit next door and knocked the wall through to it. It's an ice-cream and coffee parlour now.

As you may imagine, this went down very well, and we all toddled off feeling quite happy with the world.

I wonder if anyone that owns Mother India has a connection to the old Bungalow Cafe on Dumbreck Road/Fleurs Avenue? They reference it in the sign, but maybe they just liked the place. When I was a kid we used to go in there on the way to Pollok Park for a Sunday walk. I have great memories of being treated to a 99 on sunny days.

A short feature on beer gardens throughout Glasgow. But what struck me was the photo used for Sloans - two massive bins taking up space and spoiling the look of the place. I thought the space looked great until I spotted them.

This unit here? If so great, that has to be the ugliest empty unit on the street. Via Italia opening goes with the move to make Sauchiehall St more of an eating/drinking/entertainment district.
