Stereo Review – Quick Lunch in the City
While visiting Glasgow last week for quick lunch with a friend I had the opportunity to visit another one of the cities popular vegan food places, Stereo and as such leave this review. Situated in a really handy place, right around the corner from central station Stereo had a smaller menu than my new favourite restaurant Mono, but an interesting menu nonetheless. The hardest thing I find when visiting a vegan eatery is deciding what to have, when you are used to chips/baked potato, to have an entire menu to choose from.
Stereo was pretty small inside from what I saw, although I believe it has more than one level. The decor was nice though. The staff were attentive, brought over a menu and came back to take our order within 5 minutes.
After much consideration I went for something I had never heard of, a Shamuchan Turkish Pizza Wrap which was filled with spiced haggis, cabbage, pickled onion and garlic mayo and served with a side salad.
It was really delicious, at home I don’t use vegan mayo, something about white foods always makes me feel a little off (weird I know?), but I’m happy to try it when I’m out and it made the filling really creamy which is different from what I usually eat. My omnivore friend had a margherita calzone which looked nice too, he enjoyed it.
Overall it was a nice lunch, good company, reasonable price (<£10 for lunch and a drink) and decent food. If I had one minor complaint it would be that our table was wobbly. Literally tiny complaint there, other than that I will definitely be back. It’s location right next to Central Station makes it a must visit for me, after reading about Stereo on trip advisor (and leaving a stereo review here) I would like to go back on a Monday to try the tapas special. I will get there eventually!
