We review Glasgow Juicy health food cafe
Like most of Glasgow this month, I have recently been hit with a terrible dose of cold.
In true drama queen fashion, it reduced me to a whiny mess that drove friends and co-workers crazy with constant coughing and complaining.
Now back in full health (and keen to avoid coming back in such a pitiful state anytime soon) for my turn at the Glasgow Times takeaway review, I chose the West End-popular Juicy cafe.
Celebrity sightings happen every week at the Byres Roadside Shop and I couldn’t wait to see what it was all about and try to supercharge my immune system.
Healthy options don’t mean sacrificing choice at Juicy, which serves everything from winter soups to refreshing acai bowls.
I opted for a build-your-own salad bowl, assuming it would be filled with the most flu-fighting nutrients.
In parallel, I ordered a Fat Burner juice.
As a warning here, I don’t believe a bottle of green juice will help someone lose a dress size, but I chose this one because the mix of pineapple, apple, cucumber , spinach, lime and moringa seemed the most appealing.

The last item on my order was a “raw” Twix bar to combat the usual mid-afternoon slump that hits this time of year.
It should be noted that I ordered via Deliveroo who offered me a 30% discount offer. It made the whole order feel like great value, especially when I was handed a heavy bag of healthy treats.
The salad bowl was by no means delicate.
Instead, it was filled with fresh, flavorful ingredients like salt and chili sweet potato, pickled cabbage, and falafel.
Building your own options is fantastic and means you get exactly what you want based on your personal tastes and dietary requirements.
It took me longer to eat that massive portion than it did to get delivered, which will hopefully give you an idea of just how generous the portions are at Juicy.
The raw Twix bar was a perfect mix of dark chocolate and what I assume was a date based caramel. I have mixed feelings about so-called “guilt-free” desserts, but in this case, it was really good, indulgence or otherwise.
My fat burner juice was perhaps the only weak link in the order, just tasting a bit on the watery side. Without the discount it would have been priced at £5.95, which was at odds with the value for money of the Twix salad and bar.
That being said, I would much prefer a juice that I know retains the sweet fillers in favor of the actual nutritional value.

Overall, I was very impressed with my lunchtime delivery from Juicy and wouldn’t hesitate to order again.
This is an insta-famous restaurant that lives up to the hype.
