Glasgow; various eateries; Nostrana & the Finnieston Fez

So I finally tried, after it was only open a few weeks, Nostrana, a new Italian place in Hyndland (just north of Soul Space in the link), Glasgow.

Nostrana, Hyndland, Glasgow

It was nice, very friendly service (my date spelled their coffee, and they were just SO helpful with them, even giving a new one FOC!), with food that at first seemed “small”, but was huge.

Handcrafted pizza

As usual, I felt that a normal dish would not be enough, wrong again! I ordered some bread, whilst the plus 1 chose their salad; both ample enough.

Well worth it, but no doubt during the winter, it’d be desirable to sit inside.

This brings us to the Finnieston Fez, located on the eastern edge of Finnieston, in the West End of Glasgow.

To be honest, this was a surprise, though I had walked past before, and always had a hankering to sit in the window seat. I shall return.

While inside, I was literally the only one there (later there were more, almost packed), and was confronted with several very lovely people. What a joy, they WANTED to be there! Isn’t that a good feeling, I was not intruding.

The menu is a Moroccan type of Mediterranean thing, and I opted for something simple – a Falafel Panini, and just had to have the sweet, traditional, Moroccan tea – glad I did. And for it to be served in a traditional setting, perfect.

As for the Panini, it was flavourable, and not overbearing. The tee-pee type of container contained slight chillied olives.

I will return.
