Red Onion Review

I've just been in Glasgow, as part of a trip travelling round Scotland. My wife Sarah and I love wandering round cities we've never been to before, and seeing what happens.
Sure, we take a guide book, just to make sure we take in a couple of the big tourisy bits and pieces. But then we try to wander off tracks a little.
What do locals do? What's it like to live here? Those are our mantras, and they worked well in Glasgow, I can tell you.
We'd been for a tour of the School of Art, and then we'd managed to find the Tenement House. Boy, was that cool! Nothing has changed for more than a century. Wow!
Then we were feeling peckish. We strolled back to Sauchiehall Street and turned along a street, at random.
And came face to face with a little restaurant called Red Onion. In we went, and enjoyed the best lunch of our vacation. I think the menu was mostly European, but there were Asian twists in there also.
Like I said, we roll with wherever crosses our path. But Red Onion was so welcoming and tasty that I felt like dropping this line.
I agree with this web site. Red Onion is well worth a visit. And it didn't set us back much, either.
