The Handmade Burger Co | Glasgow

Hi Lovelies
This is a very long overdue post but I've finally got round to posting about my experience going to The Handmade Burger Co. I have heard lots of positive things about this place so its  been on my list of restaurants I have wanted to visit. When me and my partner we look for two things one being a place that offers a decent variety of vegetarian food and a place my partner will like too and he's a not vegetarian so he likes a lot of choices and as we are both muslim it has to have options too. 

The handmade burger co has many restaurants up and down the UK including the one I went too which was in Silverburn Glasgow. UK. They have a decent size menu including vegetarian and vegan options. They also have a kids menu which has 2 halal option and 1 vegan option. 

The Restaurant 
Me and my partner loved the design and the seating was comfortable with a decent amount of leg room too. The table was sturdy which is fab because Ive been to places before and the table keeps moving. The menus were very big and simple to read and I found what I wanted to order easily and so did my partner.

The service 
We didn't wait long for a table, the waiter took us over to our chairs with a friendly smile on his face handing us our menus. When we were ready to order my partner went to the till to pay and order the food and drinks and they came within him sitting down which I think is brilliant

The Food 
Me and my partner ordered the veg-mex burger because we both have a love of spicy food. We also ordered the sweet potato fries and rosemary salt seasoned chips. We waited for the food not longer then 15 minutes and as you can see by the pictures the food is displayed very nicely

As much as I want to say its the best burger I have had I can't, it was a nice burger but for the price it wasn't what I expected and it fell to bits far to easily and it could of done with a spicy burger sauce in it as it was a little bit too dry. The fries and the chips tasted lovely and overall we both enjoyed our meals and most likely would visit here again but would try something different next time.

Things I love

  • Lots of different burgers to choose from 
  • Many vegan, vegetarian options including desserts 
  • Friendly staff
  • Nice atmosphere 
  • Kids menu

Astral Cream Review

original astral cream review
 Astral cream has been around for longer then I can remember and has been a favourite skincare product of my mums and nana for years, so I thought the time came for me to try this cream for myself to see what all the fuss was about. I ended up treating buying this half price in super drug last month so I could test it properly to see if it worked for me.

Astral is an all intense moisturiser to take care of the skin that they haven't needed to change the formula since they first brought the product out which is over 50 years ago. This cream is also mulit-use so can be used on the hands, skin and the face.

I bought the largest tub available which is the 500ml because I like to save the pennies and of course it would last me a lot longer too because me and my husband both use skincare products together, its like a mini pamper session every morning and last thing at night.
Astral Cream Review
First things first this cream is so thick and to quite honest it may look a little daunting but once you get it on your skin  its actually quite soothing and quite nice and relaxing to apply to the skin. I used a walnut sized amount on my skin and neck, a dollop on my hands and body. The cream is very soft and silky and rubs into my skin easily without any mess and didn't leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards. The scent of the cream is a little bit over the top but that hasn't put me off the cream at all because it works well on my skin. I have sensitive skin and this cream didn't make my skin sore it was just soothing.
