WINTER WONDERLAND THROUGH A WINDOW - ALL THIS, AND GOOD FOOD TOO...

 
 
On the way into Glasgow on the train this afternoon, I was struck
by the twinkle and sparkle of the hedgerows and trees in the wintry
countryside beyond the carriage window. Arrayed in their finest frosty
apparrel, there was something enchanted and magical about the scene,
and I wouldn't have been in the least bit surprised had I caught sight of
a Unicorn peering out from under the shimmering, diamond-bedecked
canopy of the woods. And no, I'm not on drugs.
 
After visiting my local FORBIDDEN PLANET, I took a slow
stroll along to Glasgow's WEST END, and in particular, the famous
ASHTON LANE. One of my favourite Italian restaurants relocated a
few months back, and I hadn't yet had a chance to sample the gourmet
delights on offer in the new establishment which now occupies
the premises.
 
I'm happy to report that the food was most satisfying and the service
warm and friendly, and I exited a few trivial pounds lighter (and some
different kind of pounds heavier) than I went in. All in all, a thoroughly
 enjoyable experience and I'm certain to return at the earliest opportunity.
Situated just above the VODKA WODKA bar, the name of this delightful
restorante is UNA-STORIA, and I heartily recommend it to all those
discerning diners who haven't yet given it a try.
 
Small and intimate, it's the ideal place to take your wife or girl-
friend for CHRISTMAS. Unfortunately, my girlfriend couldn't make
it (my footpump's broken), so instead I took the one I love most in all
  the world - ME!  Give it a try - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
