Geddit?!? Oh, come on. Award-winning material that one.
The jokes may make you wince but today’s Big Deal from WEST on the Corner will make you smile.
An offshoot of the WEST Brewery on Glasgow Green, WEST on the Corner brings a stylish taste of Bavaria to Woodlands Road.
By day, it is light and airy with stripped walls, pale wood and white, bright furniture. By night it has an inviting, warm glow.
The locally brewed, German-style lagers and wheat beers on tap are a big attraction.
Available Sunday to Friday, this Big Deal has two options.
Option one is for two people to have two courses from the market menu along with a pint of WEST beer for each diner.
This option also includes a WEST branded pint glass for each diner to take away.
Diners are invited to choose a starter and main course or main course and dessert from the market menu.
The exact dishes may vary depending on the produce available but your menu will look like this:
Soup of the day with tapa bread
Haddock fishcake with West curry sauce and salad
Beetroot salad, goats’ cheese mousse and smoked paprika crumble
Pan-fried salmon, spatzle with mint, peas and crème fraiche
Sweet potato, feta and pine kernel filo pastry parcel with rocket and tomato salad
Currywurst, sauerkraut with West curry sauce
Half, roasted chicken, hand-cut chips served with garlic and lemon mayonnaise (£2 supplement)
Vanilla and chocolate meringue with crème fraiche and passion fruit sorbet
Lemon posset with fresh strawberries and chocolate crumble
British cheese selection, chutney, oatcakes, apple (£2 supplement)
Option two is for two people to enjoy a sharing platter. This option also includes three glasses (1/3 of a pint each) of beer for each guest – a great way to sample WEST’s range of beers.
The exact ingredients may change but the choice of sharing platters will be very similar to these:
German platter – Black Forest ham, salami, Arran smoked cheddar, obatzda, figs, sauerkraut, beetroot and apple slaw and dill gherkins. Served with rye bread
German sausage selection – Bockwurst, Bratwurst, Bavarian smokie. Served with Dijon mustard, WEST curry sauce and sauerkraut
