Kastriot’s

Coming out of the dark!

I’m still apprehensive about going out and will only do so if I need to and sometimes this ‘need’ is to share food and company. It’s been sad to see, the Glasgow I love, so quiet and still but it’s starting to come alive.

Gia’s

The East End of Glasgow might not be known for its culture, sophistication and class but the locals do know about good food and value for money. Last night I put my bet on a new and very chic eatery, which is sure to be a massive hit with East Enders and anyone else who cares to take a trip down Shettleston Road!

You will love it!
