Sophie’s Scran: Restaurant Review of Metropolitan, Merchant City
So, for lunch yesterday, I decided to go somewhere new and tried Metropolitan, a cocktail bar and restaurant in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City!
As part of the set lunch 2 courses for £12 menu, I ordered a starter of black pudding and chorizo with salad and a poached egg. Ordering this dish, I wasn’t sure if I’d like much of it at all (I’m a fussy eater, remember?) and I am not a big salad fan but I was pleasantly surprised with this starter! I’ve tried chorizo (salty and spicy Spanish pork sausage) before and I really like it, and Metropolitan’s chorizo is de-lish. But the biggest surprise was that I loved the black pudding! I had never tried black pudding before, mostly because its appearance put me off. But it was excellent and I could’ve eaten a whole plate full of it on its own.
I also really enjoyed the salad which was a surprise. I usually don’t like any of the green stuff unless it comes with a really good dressing and this one certainly did. The dressing was an orange, meaty, spicy one. (If anyone knows what the name of this dressing might be, let me know in the comment section below! I might actually buy some and start eating salads. Who knows?)
For my main course, I ordered the Metropolitan beef burger served with salad and handcut chips. This dish, too, was excellent with delicious, freshly cut chips and a succulent beef burger with a sweet, soft bun. The dish also came with a tangy relish with added that extra bit of spice to the burger.
Overall, I would definitely recommend eating out at Metropolitan especially at lunchtime with this great deal of 2 courses (starter and main course) for only £12 per person!
