Glasgow Living Part 12 – #BloggingTheRubicon at Crossing The Rubicon, West End, Glasgow

Readers, I’ve had a great month catching up with fellow bloggers and attended a great event at Crossing The Rubicon on Great Western Road, Glasgow, earlier this month.  We even had our own hashtag… #BloggingTheRubicon

It’s the first time I’ve been at the venue and I loved it.  It’s got a really lovely neighbourhood venue feel, with some nice wall art and warm colours inspired by India and jewel tones, I assumed.

This was a chance for us all to try out food and craft beer for one night only and it can’t be denied, there was a LOT of food. Being the bloggers we are, we made a big effort with the food, polishing off as much as we could!

This venue is perfect for veggies and vegans alike – with some great curry options on the menu.  The staff are all really knowledgeable on the menu choices, so if you aren’t sure what is and isn’t suitable for special diets, just ask.

We had a range of pakora to start – my favourite being the chicken.  We also had some amazing dips with mini poppadums and kept the dips back (and ordered more) to have with our starters.
Next up, the curries arrived with a range of sides including raita, Indian salad, a delicious dhal, chapati and basmati rice… phew.

It was great to try so many things on the menu – the curries all had different strengths of heat.  So if one was too hot, you could move on – not always possible when you order a curry in a restaurant (hence me always sticking to what I know… safer that way!).  Special shout out must go to the butter chicken and the korma I tried.  The korma was light on spice but super aromatic and paired perfectly with some chapati and basmati rice.
Above - amazing korma.  Below - butter chicken.
 

We were super full (I think the guys at Crossing The Rubicon recognised this) and brought out a small vegan friendly chocolate pot for Emma, Michelle and I to share at the table.  It was delicious and there’s no way I would have guessed it was vegan.  Guys, if you are reading this, PLEASE share the recipe with me.  How do you get it so floofy?!
