This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Sleazy’s, as the city’s hipsters so fondly call it, is a Glasgow institution as far as music/arts venues go, and among those rarities with a 3am licence all week. The interior may feel like a well-worn leather jacket, dragged through the bowels of subculture, however Meathammer Ltd, who controls the kitchen, has refreshingly reclaimed the ‘Nice’. Chef Andy serves up an esoteric range of yummyness from gourmet burgers and sandwiches to amazeballs Mexican-style street food. Scottish beef and pork, free-range chicken and eggs mixed with a whole lotta heart, flavour, rocksalt and soul going into the prep. Handmade chargrilled burger buns pack in meat and veggie options such as hot-smoked salmon, grilled marinated halloumi and Moroccan spiced lamb. Under a shower of herbed sea-salt flakes, tripled-cooked chips in their jackets are perfectly crisp. Wash it all down with a cold pint of Budvar – or a Black Russian, if it takes your fancy.

Bar Crawls: Glasgow - The Sauchiehall Street Saunter18 Nov 2011
Making the most of Glasgow city centre drinking
Both ‘pub crawl’ and ‘Sauchiehall Street’ can evoke images of large groups of revellers staggering from one ropey watering hole to the next, the night hurtling towards a climax of kebab sauce and lost cloakroom tickets. Well this route aims to redress…
