    New low carb restaurant Paleo Canteen to open in Glasgow

    Post by graham64 on Sun Sep 03 2017, 21:59

    Don't reckon the Angry Chef would be welcome here well maybe with a Glasgow Kiss  Twisted Evil

    TRYING to keep your diet in check?

    Well look no further than Paleo Canteen; a new low carb restaurant opening in Glasgow from tomorrow.

    The main principle of a paleo diet is to go back to the way of our ancestors and depend on all-natural foods to survive.

    And now Glasgow's gluten free venue is set to launch within King Tuts based at St Vincent Street on Monday.

    Paleo Canteen promises to make your diet a bit more exciting with a varied menu of light bites, salads, bowls and even dessert.

    I do hope this venture goes well, the menu sounds good with chicken broth, aubergine curry, chicken skewers and grilled meat being on it Smile

    Maybe a chain of these restaurants might develop?

    All the best Jan

    Hello Puff - welcome to the Forum.

    The new low carb / paleo eatery in Glasgow does sound good.

    I have to admit I'm not a big coffee drinker and hadn't heard of Tim Hortons Embarassed

    But thanks to Mr Google, I see this chain is big in the US and Canada ...

    According to a report in the Scottish Sun:
    "The company was founded in Ontario in 1964 by Canadian hockey player Tim Horton, who named the business after himself and now has 4,500 stores worldwide but there are none in Europe.

    Gruprit Dhaliwal, chief operating officer of Tim Hortons UK, said: “We’ve witnessed Tim Hortons’ phenomenal success in Canada, and wanted to replicate this in Great Britain.

    “It’s hard to explain just how important Tim Hortons is to Canadians, it’s not just a restaurant, it’s a way of life and a place of ‘home’, and we’re positive Great Britain will fall in love with the brand.”
    One of the best known hot drinks you can order at Tim Hortons is a double double.

    Go into any Tim Hortons restaurant and order a double double you will be presented with what looks like a regular coffee.

    But what makes its special it that it contains two creams and two sugars – double the regular amount.
    another one of its most famous products will also be on sale – doughnuts.

    But not only do they sell regular shaped doughnuts, they also sell little bite sized ones called ‘Timbits’
    These are meant to represent the middle part of a doughnut that is cut out to make the ring shape.
    And not only are they easy to eat, they also come in a variety of flavours such as apple fritter, honey dip, chocolate glazed and sour cream glazed."

    https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/918053/tim-hortons-coffee-glasgow-scotland-opening/

    Not too sure about the carb content in Tim Hortons Timbits, although I'm sure they would taste delicious.

    For those who may prefer a low carb version of 'donut holes' (timbits) Marye has a good recipe, and you can see it here

    All the best Jan

    Hello all,

    Never ever seen a deep fried Mars bar, Chris. Never been to a chippy that sells them either, I'm afraid. Just the thought of it, raises my blood sugars! Smile

    Hi Graham64, although I come from Glasgow originally, I now live on the east side of the country, just outside Edinburgh. But my good lady and I venture into Glasgow now and then, for a browse, so I've got a visit to it on my list of things to do.

    Hi Jan1, I used to live in Canada and frequented the shop on a daily basis, but just for the coffee, not the double-double or the doughnuts! I used to send bags of the Coffee home, via the RAF, for friends who had moved back to the UK and were having withdrawal symptoms! bounce bounce bounce
    There was a Canadian 'National Scandal' a couple of years ago, when the chain was being sold to 'Nestle'. They, apparently, had to promise not to mess with the blend.

    Hi again Puff, I've never visited Glasgow and doubt I will but hope the LC cafe is successful then maybe others across the UK will follow suit 

    I used to visit friends in the borders on a regular basis but these days it's not really an option due to one of them sadly passing I did however enjoy my times there when we toured the west coast and a visit from Oban by ferry to Iona was a highlight for me
