When Hayley was through in Glasgow last weekend I was mega pumped when she told me she was curious about Bar Soba. I'm a fan of trying new places but Bar Soba is one of my favorite places to eat in G-town and I was more than happy to take her up on her offer.
I first visited Bar Soba when I came flat hunting over a year ago after securing employment so I suppose it holds some kind of special place for me. The food is of an Asian persuasion and the menu has dishes that span across Japan, Tailand, Malaysia, Korea and India. As normal for this cuisine the veggie options are a plenty with many of the dishes having a 'meat-free' option. It also feels ultra stylish inside with quirky decor and trendy, well-dressed staff.
I took a while to choose my main but settled on the Thai Green Veg Curry. Quite a safe choice from the menu but it was so beautiful that I gobbled it down whilst mildly forgetting about my table manners. As you can tell it was beautifully presented and came with jasmine rice, a lime (covered in some kind of seed?) and a small bowl of chilies.
As a side I decided to pick roti bread and yellow curry sauce even though I had absolutely no idea what it was. But after one bite I decided that if I was ever to - for whatever reason - rank the tastiest foods that have ever been in my mouth this would rank within the top five. Hayley ordered a side of chili fries which I decided to dip into the leftover curry sauce but unfortunately the heaven only occurred with the curry sauce/roti bread combo. Whoever came up with that combination deserves all the internet glory I can give them.
Also, their fries? They remind me of McDonald's fries which is honestly one of the foods I've missed since deciding that they need to get their story straight on the whole frying with beef fat (or not) before I eat them again.
Seriously go eat here. The cocktail menu also looked to die for, so drink something too.
