Huchesons Review – Glasgow – A Deluxe Brekkie

Huchesons is a swanky speakeasy inspired club lounge with a promise to whip out Côte de boeuf, fillet steaks and other parts of animal that once moo’d. There’s also Glenfarclas private dining areas with high ceilings and chandeliers – it’s decadent grandeur. Each room seems to have a bar decorated with the aforementioned distillery’s finest. It’s a belter of a venue that oozes style in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City. I’m in lust with the place already without even eating, it just felt right for brunch during the last day of our Glasgow adventure. Good food was needed to brace our sizeable bellies ahead of our last tour of the outing at the Auchentoshan Distillery. Expect local produce cooked with respect.

The latte £3 is lovely – we’re off to a good start!

“Black truffle scrambled eggs on toasted brioche” £8.95, came with eggs that were exquisitely fluffy and buttery. The toasted brioche and lush truffles were made for them, it’s a marriage that might be like a well-worn sock, but it’s one that I’ve never had before. 

The black pudding side £3 was moist, flavoursome and pleasing to eat.  

The bacon side wasn’t to be sniffed at either, at £1.50 it was a steal. 

The mushroom side £1.50 was also cooked well, pan fried to a deep chestnut brown and was full of earthy-nutty notes.  On the plate..

Jeff opted for the scrambled egg and salmon £9.95. He was definitely scrambled after all the whisky he drank during the trip and confirmed that his brekkie was on par. 

The verdict:

When did I go? Feb 2017
The damage: Expect to pay £15 per head
The good: We were rewarded for spending time searching for an impressive breakfast place – the food and venue were deluxe and I’ll happily eat here again. Next time it could be the steak and seafood that we order, the breakfast will be at the forefront of our minds though.
The bad: Not much to grumble about.
Rating: 4/5
Would I go again? Yes
