Tron Bar & Kitchen
It was lovely to catch up with Hannah, Alison and a band of new friends on a snowy early evening in Glasgow. We convened at the Tron Theatre’s Bar & Kitchen for discussions about important matters of state, which were intertwined with offerings from their food and drink menu.
We were there at pre-theatre o’clock so could take advantage of what looked to be a very reasonably priced two and three course set menu.
I started with the soup, which turned out to be tomato and basil after it emerged that the much more appealing sounding broccoli, spinach and potato had run out. It did, however, prove to be a really good version of this sometimes underwhelming combo. It was a strong opener.
The burger was every bit as good with a succulent beef burger topping a slow-roasted mushroom, in turn topped with Swiss cheese. It was one of the best burgers I’ve had of late and right up there with the best ones I’ve sampled in Glasgow.
The chunky chips were presented as a little log cabin house, which was rather twee, but they tasted very good so that was the main thing.
So overall, I was mightily impressed with the food at the Tron. The burger, in particular, was really good. I’d recommend giving it a visit as their pre-theatre menu is excellent value.
