Apologies for the lack of recent posts, I've just started back at uni and had my dad visiting so I've been too busy to post, as I was busy veganising him! This is a wee review of the oldest vegan restaurant in Glasgow, The 78 where I took him on his last night because I'd never been but heard good things.
You immediately sense the trendy, West-End retro vibe as you enter the room, with quiet indie music playing from the corner (they also have live performances), painting hanging on the walls and a mainly wooden decor with random collectables from around the globe to have a nosy around.
I am severely allergic to dairy, eggs and nuts so I've always struggled eating out (I basically just didn't after one too many trips to the hospital), so for me this was like finding the Promised Land. I can't believe it took me an entire semester to go! I told the waiter as I entered that I have a nut allergy, so he was fully informative what I would be able to eat and recommended certain dishes to me.
They have a specials board up everyday and a main menu consisting of a variety of dishes such as soups, burgers, curries, breads and sides. I was so excited I practically buzzed off my seat (I think they thought I was a bit weird).
I ended up going for the 'classic 78 burger' with side salad and garlic bread, and my dad went for the curry with rice. I cannot describe the heaven I was in for this meal. As in I honestly can't review it for you in words. I don't know whether I've just always had bland, simple foods because I was worried about trying anything interesting with my allergies but you've simply got to go and try this place for yourself. My dad is not easily impressed, and tends to role his eyes whenever I get hyped and try to push veganism on him but even he had to admit that this was quality, reasonably priced food, and with STUDENT DISCOUNT!
