What does an aardvark like on its pizza? Ant-chovies.
We’ve got hundreds of those and they’re all terrible.
Which makes them very different from today’s terrific Big Deal on an Italian meal for two at the lovely Vespbar on Drury Street.
A chic mix of slick city centre bar and retro-style Italian café, Vespbar is a popular three storey hangout in the heart of Glasgow.
Available from noon, seven days a week, this offer is for two people to each have a starter followed by a pizza or pasta main course from the Big Deal menu
From crispy bruschetta to mozzarella bites and comforting soup of the day, Vespbar’s starters are guaranteed to get your motor revving for the main courses.
We fancy the spicy Italian sausage pizza from the classic section but we could understand why you might go for a New Delhi topped with tandoori chicken, chilli and a minty raita dressing.
The pastas include our old friends Salsiccia, Al Fredo and, of course, Arrabiata.
Fantastic night out
Today’s Big Deal would be brilliant for a night out with a friend or even a low key date. You could use it as a break during a shopping expedition; as an alternative to eating al desko in the office or simply as a great excuse not to bother cooking.
The food is fab at Vespbar and the bar also puts on comedy nights, DJs, variety shows and sweet, sweet drink promos.
Just don’t blame us if you come for the pizza and end up staying all night.
Vespbar has many an admirer on 5pm Dining. This is what Margaret Glover had to say on Vespbar’s entry:
‘Great little place and the pizzas are excellent! Turning in to one of my regular places to dine out in Glasgow.’ Rating 5/5
