The iconic Chez Mal Brasserie officially landed at the Malmaison hotel in Glasgow last month! The eatery, now the ninth Chez Mal in the UK, offers guests a mix of contemporary-styled dishes, so foodies can most certainly look forward to menus bursting with bold flavours, fine ingredients and complemented, of course, with a line-up of chilled craft beers, crisp wines, crafty cocktails and bubbly champagnes. With its glittering domed ceilings and relaxed brasserie-style service, Chez Mal is truly a step up from the usual restaurant fare.

The GlasgowLiving team were lucky enough to be invited along for a sneak peek behind the scenes at what Chez Mal had to offer. After falling in love with some haggis bon bons and a few gin cocktails, the food tasting got off to a flying start when our host brought out pepper seared rump beef carpaccio served with cauliflower & roasted garlic cream, tempura florets, black truffle dressing, Parmesan & dressed leaves.

The veggie option, heritage beetroot carpaccio, was just as good! We then had a nibble at the handmade vietnamese tuna rolls – pickled mooli, cucumber, avocado, coriander & Nuoc Cham chilli dipping sauce – so refreshing!

As if we weren’t happy enough, the catering team and customer service was soulful, warm, joyful, and diligently attentive throughout! The lively atmosphere, delicious food & superb service definitely made it a night to remember!
