We stopped by Something…, a new addition to the Clarkston cafe scene, one recent Sunday for a bite of brunch and we were delighted to see our hopes for a new decent local were more than met.
It’s so refreshing to see something a bit different in Glasgow (not a burger in sight…) never mind out in the wilds of the southside. I can hold my hands up to say I did a genuine squal of delight when I saw the menu – sumac! Black beans! N’duja! Roasted cauliflower!
We ordered the Tolteca (chipotle salsa, black beans, avocado puree, and coriander on a fried tortilla with fried eggs) and the Stornoway (black pudding, caramelised onions, sourdough and the ubiquitous eggs). Both dishes were really well cooked, flavoursome and very decent potion sizes. Doggy bags would have been useful; as it was, we stuffed ourselves silly and pretty much rolled out of the door.
Staff were welcoming, friendly and service swift. If I was being really picky, a more comprehensive selection of some really good quality tea would be the cherry on the parfait, so to speak, but that is a minor quibble.
This will definitely become a frequent local haunt for us.
