Side orders

Sovereign Boot Co Rumbling turns have another choice as the Sovereign Boot Co opens on the

increasmgly busy Byres Road/ Dumbarton i

Road axrs. Taking it’s place among Two Fat Ladies, Fusion, Salsa, Beetlenut and Balbir’s, the Sovereign Boot Co is an American-style chargrill diner.

As well as a selection of quesadillas, chicken wmgs, Caribbean casseroles, steaks and club sarnies, this Joint has really gone to town on the burger selection. Taking the American ideal of freedom of choice to heart, they offer a range of beef, chicken, lamb, pork or tuna burgers. On the vegetarian front, the chOice includes Tex Mex, root vegetable and roast fennel as well as the nutburger ver5i0n. Havrng deCIded on the type of burger the next dilemma is which topping to choose There are seven of them. Think yOu're done? Nope What flavour bun would you like it on? Sesame, rosemary, salsa, onion or sun-dried tomato. The chOice is y0urs. Now for the fries. Take y0ur pick from six different varieties. All that remains 15 for you to deode how you want your beef burger done, from rare to well done. Everything is cooked to order and mathematicians are still argumg as to whether the burger menu offers more possible permutations than the National Lottery. re The Sovereign Boot Co, 229 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow Tel 0747 579 7579.

Varsova The revolution is now according to the launch slogan of Varsova in Paisley. But far from the revolutionary cryl of 'land, bread and freedom' which insurgents have traditionally howled for, it’s vodka, vodka and vodka that are on the agenda here

If the Kamikaze (vodka, triple sec and sour mix) sOunds to woose-like then attempt the Han-Kari Kamikaze. The menu is wonderfully prosaic and details the ingredients as 'even more vodka, even more triple sec, less sow mix and a bottle of Bacardi Lime Breezer'

Alternatively, East meets West in the form of the Pure Dead Eastern Bloc Shock, half a bottle of the American Aftershock, half a bottle of Pure polish vodka and a dash of Red Bull. Good night Vienna. (Jonathan Trew) % Varsova, 38 High Street, Paisley. Tel 0747 5670357.
