After much deliberation, Martyn M "finally settled on a layered aubergine dish to start with, and a mushroom pappardelle for my main." "Iven baked layers of grilled aubergene with mozzarella, basil, tomato & parmesan" is £4.90 as a starter.

Braised aubergine with minced pork and oyster sauce features on their new menu at £9.90 for a main. The unusual combination of pork and aubergine are a match made in heaven!

Rocco G praises this as "a Turkish delight of home cooking goodness!" With "tasty traditional mezes, Turkish stews packed full of veggies, succulent kebabs and plenty of my beloved aubergine, which feature heavily in many dishes, as you would expect from Turkish cuisine."

"The three small plates at £7.95 looked just the ticket and I opted for chickpea fritters, butterbean hummus and roast baby aubergine with tomato, garlic and pine nuts." Jules M says it has a "vibe that's more classy Mediterranean bistro than run-of-the-mill café!"

Ka Ka Lok, 175 St Georges Road, Glasgow Charing Cross G3 6JD

"A feast of clay pot dishes arrived, including aubergine and salt fish, XO Seafood, an outstanding and tender beef stew - it has to be said the quality of the food and ingredients was second to none and the portions were hugely generous" says Rocco G.

"The food all looks very fresh and colourful and good for you! I couldn't possibly spell the Persian name of what I had but it was lamb with aubergines, yellow peas and tomatoes and it was pretty tasty" raves Lisa G.

Persia, 665 Great Western Road, Glasgow West End G12 8RE

Jules M admits: "I'm not really a fan of aubergine but when turned into a dip by the folk at Persia its pretty delicious. I could say the same for the hummous!"
