After two solid weeks of tracking my food and hitting my calories, it was time for a cheat. Cheats are so important to keep yourself sane during diets and because we’re all human and need a burger every once in a while! I don’t feel like I need a ‘cheat meal’ to this sort of proportion every week, (this is serious eating!) but every two weeks I’m definitely going to have something super tasty and head out for a meal.
Freshly landed in Notts is Griddle & Shake, a seriously cool independent burger company which serves killer dirty burgers, heavenly shakes, chicken wings and beers all with a smile! I’ll give you the low down…
If you’re a burger fan but don’t fancy waiting forever for a table or coming out of a restaurant stinking like a meat-smoker then I’ve got the perfect answer! Griddle & Shake is surprisingly awesome. I say surprisingly because you don’t expect something this good to come out of a Subway-style ordering process. You choose your burger (beef, chicken, tempeh or pulled pork), bun (pretzel or brioche), cheese (American, stilton, cheddar or halloumi), side (we’ll get onto fries later) & drink and pay at the till.
About a year ago, a little business called Deliveroo popped up onto our radar. They pick up your favourite restaurant food and bring it to your door. Yep, you can have Wagamamas at home. You can have Prezzo on your sofa or Carluccio’s from the comfort of your bathtub. The possibilities are endless and it’s pretty great. No longer are we confined to ‘take away’ being either the fish and chip shop or your local Chinese. You get to eat from a brand you know and love from the comfort of your own cosy abode.
