Unique Pop Up Restaurant for all foodies

A Recent Glasgow Live review says “Liam McAlpine, also known as the ‘Flavabomb King’, has created a pop-up restaurant in The Flavour Bomb Kitchen that is the perfect mix of daring and delicious”. You can follow Liam’s food blog and get his latest recipes here.

With 1-2 events per month, customers pay  *see below as it varies * for a set tasting menu of five courses which are kept secret until the night. Free corkage is part of the deal encourages diners to bring amazing wines & beers to enjoy with their meal.

Liam and his team produce fresh and exciting dishes mixing traditional Scottish ingredients such as Stirlingshire pheasant, venison and mussels with South American and South East Asian flavours and ideas to deliver gourmet quality and truly memorable food.
