Coffee, video games, my dog. That’s life.
This is Hal. Do yourself a favour and check out his Instagram. He’s just moved to Glasgow from down South.
One of my good friends invited me to Oyster Happy Hour at Hutchesons. I got to witness Ayden trying oysters for the first time, so I couldn’t decline such an invitation. I like oysters, and Hutchesons delivered both in terms of presentation and taste. (And price as it’s £1 per oyster during happy hour.)
We washed ’em down with cocktails. An amaretto sour and parma violet, to be specific. 10/10, will be back.
I love Sheffield! My mum’s boyfriend lives there, so I feel quite at home when I visit. Years ago I was told Sheffield didn’t have any good coffee places. I’m not sure when Tamper popped up, but it’s really, really great.
Ryan’s band have have used my photo as the cover of their new album. As payment I asked him to treat me to lunch. That’s right, food > money.
We checked out Prep Fitness Kitchen, which is one of the few healthy eateries popping up in Glasgow. I had bulletproof coffee and a chicken wrap. That was probably the tastiest bulletproof coffee I’ve had.
Last weekend, Rab and I did a small coffee shop tour in Glasgow. We visited McCune Smith, Spitfire Espresso and Meadow Road (and Tantrum Doughnuts).
McCune Smith: I had a tasty coffee from the AeroPress, but the service was really slow.
Spitfire Espresso: Great sandwiches to compliment your coffee.
Meadow Road: Nice decor and interesting floor, which makes for a good photo backdrop.
Tantrum Doughnuts: Krispy Who? This is where to get your doughnut fix.
Spent some time with Rab today, a fellow photographer. It feels good to shoot a straight up portrait. It’s been a while since I’ve picked up my camera for just ‘me’. The aim of our day, however, was a tour of some of Glasgow’s indie coffee shops. Stay tuned for those photos…
