Yelp Glasgow has now launched its Pakora Passport! We kicked it off with a super-sized party at Mother India. There was more demand for spots than we could fit into the cellar, so the 70 lucky Yelpers who made the guest list arrived at 7pm to be greeted with a glass of prosecco.
Shortly after the Yelpers arrived, Briony C announced the arrival of the first pakora of the Pakora Passport! With that, Mother India delivered freshly cooked, cripsy pakora to the guests – chicken & mushroom, fish, vegetable as well as a vegetarian haggis & potato pakora.
As Leanne R said, there was 'not a spot of grease in sight and light, crispy batter!' Just the way pakora should be!
Joseph "the P is for Pakora" P reviewed the event before the pakora had even arrived, such was his love of the night (and thanks to reviews on mobile!). He later edited his review to add – 'excellent beers, tasty wine, great hosting and hospitality and some dazzling sitar skills!'
Fyne Ales came along to the party with two of their finest beers – Jarl and Sanda Blonde. Chris from Fyne Ales was on hand to answer any questions – and it was confirmed by Yelpers that the beers were a great match for the pakora!
Also available were wines provided by Matthew Clark Ltd which guests agreed were 'lovely' (Sarah C) and 'tasty' (Joseph P)!
After sampling 4 kinds of pakora, 3 types of wine and 2 different beers, the night came to a close. The Pakora Passport festivities are just starting though – on Monday we're off on our first passport outing. Fancy coming along? Just RSVP here!

A huge Yelpy thanks goes to Mother India for providing an amazing venue and delicious pakora on the night, Fyne Ales for their beers and Matthew Clark for the wine. An extra special thanks to Steve the sitar player who provided a great musical accompaniment to the night. All photos are by the excellent Alasdair Watson Photography!
See you on Yelp!
