Shake Shake Shake The Room!

Tic-tic-tic-tic BOOM! Ha you gotta love a bit of Fresh Prince right? Well anyways enough of the singing let’s talk about Shake Shack, no no guys – let’s reallly talk about this. This right here is some serious sh*t. Taking a look through my long list of restaurants to try I staggered across this gem and let me tell you it did not disappoint. I tried the Westfield Stratford location so if you’re ever shopping in that area, go outside by Marks and Spencer and you’ll find a little bit of America right there. It’s a short menu but packed with flavour. You know you’re getting a good burger when they ask you how you’ll like it to be cooked, medium rare for me please – yum. This Burger was so juicy, from the smokey bacon to the tender peppers and then the crispy fries topped with hot cheesy sauce just makes the perfect combination. Oh wait, let’s not forget the star of the show the reason why we’re here the shake!

The SHAKE is Nothing like your regular Mc’Donalds shake this is thick, creamy and full of chocolate (that’s what I ordered). Although it is a bit pricy with everything coming to around £40 – it’s totally worth it. It can however be cheaper I guess if your grabbing it to go and not ordering so much, but this was dinner for me and we wanted to give everything a go as it was just before a movie(Straight Out Of Compton in-fact 10/10 from me) so it was very filling and it was nice to sit down and enjoy the meal and soak up the atmosphere.

There’s no doubt this is a 10/10 and I would recommend it to give it a try, I’m loving these American restaurants coming over to England giving us a taste of what we’re missing out on – more please!

The Big Pig Gig

So the title may of intrigued you right? But in other words it means, all you can eat BBQ. Hold up a second. Are you really taking in what I’m telling you guys, ALL…YOU…CAN…EAT… BBQ!!

I have been eyeing up this restaurant called Big Easy (London) their slogan is ‘Bar.B.Q, Crabshack and live music’.
Serving some of the best American style BBQ seafood, burgers, steaks and chicken.

The restaurant I visited is located on Kings Road, Chelsea. Despite being in London, the decor, atmosphere, live music (giving us deep soulful blues), vintage surrounding and cramped seating made me feel like I was in a typical Deep South American diner which I absolutely love (even though I’ve never been but, I’ve watched a lot of films ha!).
I mean, if you’re serving American food give me the atmosphere too.

So yes I’m now a huge fan of shrimp everyone knows this so it’s only right I ordered a bucket of those for starters and I must say – this is what I enjoyed the most.
Honestly, honest guys I can’t stress this enough but these shrimp….these shrimp!!! Hands down the best I ever tasted and I couldn’t get over how big and juicy every shrimp was. *cries* take me back.

The waiter told us it’s all you can eat BBQ and a beer on Monday nights. So we defiantly picked a good day to come.
The Big Pig Gig is what Monday’s are called, serving from noon to close the meal consists of home smoked baby back ribs, BBQ chicken served with slaw, beans and a cornbread muffin.

And that’s exactly what we got, be prepared to be jealous

The meal doesn’t come with chips so we ordered that as a side and also not sure why we got margaritas instead of beer – but I wasn’t complaining. Never was a fan of beer anyways and these lime margaritas were so sour and tangy but really refreshing on the palette after all that lashings of BBQ sauce.

The chicken and ribs was literally fall off the bone fantastic!
The sauce was dripping in sweet BBQ flavors and the side of cornbread muffin, really worked well together with it. The beans was no ordinary beans oh no, Big Easy doesn’t do ordinary. These beans were jazzed up with kidney beans which added another depth of flavor and something new for me.

The service was perfect our waiter was always checking up on us asking if we was ready for more food when our plates looked empty and when we did, a fresh sizzling batch was bought out to us in a matter of minutes.
Truly was fantastic service with a smashing price to go with it to – almost too good to be true in-fact. All you can eat for under £20 per head? Why are you still reading go book your table NOW!.

Each day varies on what is on offer for all you can eat so, if BBQ meat isn’t your thang be sure to check out their online menu for a day best suited to your taste buds. I have my eye on a few more days which I’d like to attend, so keep your eyes peeled for another review.
