Eating Out In Glasgow - Adlib

Friday, November 02, 2012

If you are in Glasgow, enjoy a good burger and a chilled out "New York" style vibe then Adlib Glasgow is the place for you.

Myself and some work colleagues went for dinner recently after a teambuilding day and I really enjoyed the whole experience.

Adlib has two restaurants in Glasgow, I visited the one on Hope Street which is right next to Glasgow Central train station but there is another on Ingram street in the Merchant City. Its somewhere I've always passed by however I most definately will be visiting again.

The venue has a very upmarket American diner style about it with New York scenes adorning the walls and nice comfy, bench type seating as well as private booths.
It is separated into a bar where you can enjoy a chilled out drink with friends and a slick restaurant to which serves classic American comfort food.

Adlib is famed for its burgers and although I didn't have one my colleagues assured me they were wonderful and their clean plates were certainly the proof.
I had the Birria Mexican Spicy Beef Stew with Chipotle, Ancho and Jalepeno Chilles and served with Red Rice, Corn Chips and Lime.

The portion was very generous and also delicious, and although it wasn't as spicy as I would have liked, the beef was very well cooked and the sauce rich.
I'm a huge fan of spicy food so I also ordered extra Jalepeno's as a topping which solved the problem.

They offer a Brunch, Lunch and Evening menu which are all reasonably priced and have dishes which fit in with the American theme.
Most dishes are priced at around the £10.00 mark so I'd say that is also fairly reasonable.

Adlib on Hope Street also has a Monster Burger challenge where they offer up a huge 3lb Aberdeen Angus beef burger, 3 beef tomatoes, 2 onions, 1lb of cheese which must be eaten in two hours without leaving the table. If you are able to tackle the burger you get it for free and a tshirt, if not it will cost you £35.00. Still quite a good deal for a burger that size I'd say, but I don't think I'd manage anywhere near finishing it.

You can find out more information about Adlib by visiting the website or calling 0141 248 6645 for the Hope Street venue or 0141 552 5736 Ingram Street.
