Six by Nico: Vietnamese Street Food

Reading time: 4 mins

It doesn’t seem that long since we last ventured to Six by Nico, largely because it isn’t. Due to the vagaries of multiple calendars, we ended up booking to go on day 2 of the newest menu which was taking us to Vietnam. I’m a huge fan of eastern flavours, and have to admit I…

Six by Nico: New York, New York

It’s been far too long since my last visit to Six by Nico but – boy oh boy Riff – it’s sure been worth the wait! The last menu – a best of complilation – was a nice way to kick start 2018 but as soon as I saw the first listing for the new…

Ground control to Major Tom… Ground control to Major Tom: Lock your Soyuz hatch and put your helmet on! I can still remember the first time I heard Space Oddity. I can recall just how otherworldly it sounded to me and while that was largely down to Mr. Bowie (an entirely other being for sure)…

Six by Nico: Best of 2017

The eighth incarnation of Six by Nico and as we move into a new calendar year, they’ve decided to go back to some of the best dishes from 2017, but there was a twist! The menu was announced on the 5th January, and in the days prior to the announcement it was up to the…

Six by Nico: Disney

What a year it’s been at Six by Nico, and what a way to finish out 2017. So popular was their announcement of their ‘Disney’ menu that their website and booking system crashed, and they’ve had to open up on a Monday to cope with demand. I was glad we book well in advance (roll…

Review: Loop and Scoop

I love ice cream, I mean I REALLY LOVE ICE CREAM – it’s something I inherited from my Dad – but would another quality ice cream vendor really find a place alongside the Nardini’s of the world? Short answer is yes! The longer answer is a bit hot and cold… View this post on Instagram…

Review: Potluck Glasgow

The joys of social media mean that Potluck has been on my radar for a while now so when I made brunch plans with a friend this place was top of the list (yes, there is an actual list), and did not disappoint. View this post on Instagram At last! Plum Hotstack at Pot Luck….

The sixth menu at Six by Nico would surely have to be an affair to remember, right? Well I’ll admit I was a little underwhelmed by the menu this time around but, having been pleasantly delighted in the past, I still had a little tremor of excitement as we sat in Kelvingrove Cafe prior to…

Six by Nico: Illusion

Reading time: 4 mins

The fifth menu has arrived and so once again my intrepid friends and I ventured to Finnieston entirely unsure of what we were about to be offered. Typically the menus that are published don’t really offer that much of a hint of what is in store beyond listing some of the core ingredients, and given…

Six by Nico: Route 66

Reading time: 5 mins

I’ll admit the temptation to start this review with some Americanisms (yeeehaw!) was strong, as this time around, Nico is taking us on a journey along a (fictitious) Route 66, the iconic American highway. But no, I’ll refrain as I think it’s best to let the food do the talking and whilst it may have…

Six by Nico: Picnic

Our third visit to Six by Nico and this time around the theme was Picnic with a menu that featured sandwiches, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, and strawberries and cream. Ahhhh but fool me twice … by now we know not to expect anything as mundane as an actual sandwich to appear! View this post on…

Six weeks have past, and it’s time for a new menu at Six by Nico! They announced this menu the same night we visited last time, and after such a stellar start I was keen to get back but a little nervous in case it wasn’t quite up to the same standard. Mind you, it’s…

TL;DR – my tweet from last night: I'm not sure I have the superlatives to describe that meal from @SixbyNico. Suffice to say we've already booked for the next menu! — G 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🤪☯️ (@Gordon) April 11, 2017 Despite the fact the ‘parent’ restaurant (111 by Nico) was a 2 minute walk from my last flat,…

OK, confession time. I have a go to, super quick meal that I eat about once a month. It’s not the healthiest, but it’s not bad for you*, and it can be ready in a few mins (depending on how long your kettle takes to boil). Gosh, I feel quite nervous about this, this is…
