At the weekend I had a lovely afternoon in the city centre soaking up some of the festive atmosphere, thanks to Glasgow Loves Christmas.
I started with lunch at Sugar Dumpling in Princes Square. I have been to this Caribbean BBQ and bar once before with a group of blogger friends and I was keen to visit again. Despite Princes Square being busy, Sugar Dumpling was very quiet. However that was no reflection on the food which I personally thought was great. I had ordered the chicken burger with sweet potato fries and it was the best chicken burger I’ve had. Normally they can be a bit dry, but the chicken was cooked beautifully. I liked all the little dips that came with the meal too although I avoided the super hot one! I also had a coconut ice cream which was presented really well and was yummy! We had a two course lunch with soft drinks for two for £35, which I thought was good value for money given how delicious the food was. The restaurant is really quirky and would be great for a group of friends for burgers and cocktails before hitting the town.
After lunch I did a spot of Christmas shopping as I am still not fully organised! (This is not like me!!) I also treated myself to a new mascara in Space NK. Princes Square was very Christmassy, with a choir singing in the open area at the bottom. It was lovely!
After a pit stop at Starbucks for a hot chocolate and brownie, we went ice skating at George Square. Last year I went skating with the kids (which was hard work!) so it was nice to be able to enjoy the music and the atmosphere at the rink as I went round. Thankfully I didn’t fall, although it was busy and some of the kids had no concept of cutting in front of you so there were a few close calls!
Have you been enjoying the festivities in Glasgow this month?
I received a complimentary lunch and ice skating for two persons. As always, opinions are honest and are my own.
