I thought I would share with you my birthday weekend; I hope you enjoy. I met a few friends and cousins in Halloumi South, which is a Greek-Cypriot restaurant in Glasgow. Halloumi South serve fresh and authentic Greek food, with a variety of cocktails to choose from. They serve smaller dishes, so this allows you to choose two or three – so you can have a taste of several dishes on the menu. My grandpa is Greek-Cypriot, and my grandparents and mum’s sister live in Cyprus – so I really enjoy Greek food. I ordered the king prawns with chili and garlic, feta tempura with a chili and mango dip and the courgettes fried in light batter. I also choose two cocktails: the Poseidon which has fresh watermelon juice, tequila, blueberries, mint and lime juice and the Adonis which is a Greek style expresso martini. We ended the meal on some ouzo shots – the less I mention about the shots the better. The drinks and food were delicious, and I would absolutely recommend if you are looking to try some Greek food in Glasgow. I booked the private room downstairs, which was great as this gave us our own space.
It was so nice to have my friends and family together, and I really appreciated them celebrating my birthday with me. After Halloumi South we went to The Rum Shack in the southside of Glasgow, which is a Caribbean bar. We then headed into the city center, and went to Firewater till the early hours. After several more tequila shots and vodkas, a few of us ended the night at my cousins flat. A lot of us were suffering a little the next day. During the week I also enjoyed lunch with some family, and have some chilled plans for the weekend. I am looking forward to the next year, and what is ahead.
