The Trading House Review

So last week Friday I attended The Trading House located near Bank station. Walking into the Trading House I didn’t expect it to be so stunning, the pictures online don't do this place justice, I was greeted by the lovely staff and the general manager of the Trading house, she then showed us to our table and handed us over to our lovely waitress Magda. 

The Trading house is somewhere you could go to celebrate a birthday or be treated on  a lovely dinner date or even for some drinks after work. The crowd in there was very mixed and it was a nice blend of people who had just come out after work and other people who had just come to dine and relax.  

The menu was explained to us by Magda she was super helpful and knew her stuff on everything on the menu. She asked us what we liked and helped us pick some delicious starters. We ended up going for the Baked Camembert which was to tasty and just so unique and also the basket of wings with different dips to share between us. 

Magda also surprised us with a cocktail she thought we would like every time she returned to the table. My favorite was the Raspberry Disaronno Sour it was just my kind of cocktail, sweet with a super kick YUM! 

For the mains we trusted Magda and went for the special Pork Belly which came with bacon and pork and cheesy chips with a side of warm apple. The pork was so tender and so juicy it was so succulent it was definitely one of the best meals I've had in London. I just couldn’t get over how amazing the service was. 

I was so content after the main that I wasn’t sure I could do desert until I saw the Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, I literally almost fell off my chair. My one weakness and that’s anything cookie dough. Madga literally was like "This is one of our most popular deserts ever!"  

Finally the baked chocolate chip cookie dough arrived, it was served on a hot mini pan and it just oozed of heaven. As I took the first bite I almost had a breakdown!! It was gorgeous I have never tasted a desert so light but so full of flavor. The cold scoop of ice cream that came with it was a killer combo. 

My experience at The Trading House was exquisite the service was perfect, the food was delicious and I will always recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants perfect food with 10/10 service in London. 

A big thank you to The Trading House for having me –x-

Chicago Rib Shack Soft Launch Review

So last week Thursday I attend the soft launch of the Chicago Rib shack at their new location in Aldgate East in London. Prior to this I heard such good things about their food but had never really visited any of their other restaurants around London.  

So when arriving to the launch with my friends it was a full house and the restaurant had such a buzzing vibe. You could see so much people having so much fun with a range of various dishes being allocated around the room. From Ribs to spicy chicken burgers and macaroni and cheese bites which were all so delicious. 

I really couldn’t get over how good everything tasted, the food was so fresh and everything was perfectly presented. The burgers were so addictive I just kept have one after the other LOL. My favorite were the grilled prawns because they were so soft but extremely juicy with the right amount of flavor. The Rib shack even had a Keith Lemon impersonator going around the room entertaining people. He really fooled me! I actually thought it was him until I inspected him from a closer point of view.  

I really enjoyed myself at the Chicago Rib shack the venue has a really cool color scheme and its very spacious plus they do the most divine cocktails. I only had 1 though as I was driving, so I will definitely have to take another trip down to experience more of the cocktails.  

The Rib Shack bought out the deserts before the launch ended, I'm not a really huge desert person but their deserts are out of this world. The brownie!!!!!! This brownie was the softest most lightest brownie that has ever touched my lips. It was like eating air but with a sweet warm coat of goodness. They also bought out a lemon tart cookie which was also lovely too, the deserts definitely made me leave with a big smile on my face. 

Thank you Chicago Rib Shack for inviting me down, I had a divine night and the food was just fabulous.

My fitness journey with MyProtein

So for the past few months I have been up and down on a fitness journey, being in London its so hard to just stay active and be healthy. Temptation is all around you and working 9-5 its hard to even cook the night before and to just be all prepared with food for the week.  

It was only August this year where I started to take my training seriously, I got a new personal trainer called Nick Templar who is literally amazing but the training is very intense. If you your looking for an amazing trainer based in Greenwich who will work you to you sweat blood LOL he is definitely the perfect trainer for you. 

I was always taking a mix of supplements from different brands not really noticing any difference in my body, but then one of my friends recommended me to get some protein powder of MyProtein. MyProtein is a super efficient website for fitness supplements such as Protein snacks, Gym shakers and, BCAA pills. MyProtein has everything you can think of to fitness clothes to amazing brownie protein snacks for when your on the go. 

I have been using for the past months: 

Impact Whey Protein – This protein powder has the best flavour ever but it's not too sweet so you know it's not bad for you. I love using this in between work shifts and just right after my workout. This is just a quicker way of sourcing protein to my body right after an intense workout. Its also for you if you haven't  had a bite to eat for 1-3 hours just to get something into your system. 

Almond Butter – I love this butter because I LOVE ALMONDS. This butter is so tasty and so good for you. There's nothing like a nice warm whole wheat bagel with a slap of Almond butter on, it's so smooth and great for bulking up. 

MYPRE – This stuff is amazing it's had a blend of vitamins and creatine with some caffeine to really help you wake up and be alert for any workout. It does say try 1 scoop for your 1st dose, but I normally use 2 scoops. My Pre is super strong and you can feel it immediately wake the body up and I always feel 100% focused after taking this. Remember to take it 30 minutes before your workout to get the maximum effect. 

Micellar Casein – This works like a dream honestly! How did I not know about this years ago? When we go to sleep we starve our bodies for a few hours so naturally the muscle tissue can start to break down. This protein slowly releases protein throughout your body while you sleep so it will stop you losing muscle mass plus it also helps with muscle recovery throughout the night. 

You guys should definitely check out MyProtein for all your fitness supplements and workout gear.
