182 West Regent Street, Glasgow, G2 4RU
After 13 years on West Regent Street, Where the Monkey Sleeps, the Glasgow sandwich shop, has opened a second store on Argyle Street. It's a different location - but the food's as great as ever.

With exposed lighting and bare brick walls, the new site has the vibe of a New York warehouse, and trademark comfy leather sofas and red and black barstools complete the look.

It's in the kitchen where the Monkey has made its name - where humble ingredients are transformed into culinary rock stars. Take the Nuclear Beans: this no-nonsense bundle of baked beans with cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce and mature Scottish Cheddar was all served on crispy ciabatta for the best beans on toast I'd ever eaten. The Witchfynder General bagel, with chicken, chorizo, Applewood smoked Cheddar, spring onion, leaves and homemade chilli mayo, was as delicious. The Greek salad delivered top flavour with every bite and was washed down with an Oreo Speedwagon Smoothie. (Yes, the Monkey's mad menu names have made the journey to Argyle Street too.)

While you wait for your made-to-order breakfast or lunch, browse the mini-library, enjoy the rocking playlist, and marvel at the array of 1970s album sleeves (and mullets) adorning the walls. Hanging beside Bowie and Pink Floyd LPs are striking paintings from a patron of Glasgow City Mission. The Monkey donates ten per cent of its profits to the local homeless charity as well as any unsold sandwiches at the end of the day. It shows not just the shop's commitment to serving only the freshest food, but also to community projects in the city.

Get down to either one of the two locations and put your Monkey where your mouth is
