CHUCK

Living out west in what some may call 'the sticks' we have our fair share of yummy places to eat, however we never seem to get restaurants that are 'cool' or 'the place to be' like you do in town.  I'm talking about the Burger & Lobster's and Meat Liquors of our generation.  There is one little area, full of delicious restaurants and as i happened to be driving through I saw bright glaring stage-like spotlights announcing the arrival of a new eatery... Chuck.  Without even glancing at a menu I could tell this was an American style burger joint, which if you know me is right up my alley.  Chuck even follow the trendy 'no reservation' policy, I almost squealed with excitement.  The boyf and I turned up on a Saturday night and had to wait no more than 5 minutes at the bar for a table in the restaurant which was heaving.  Chuck is loud, casual and has the cutest waitress dressed identically in Texan inspired uniform.  The menu is simple which suits me, the less choice the easier the decisions are that you have to make!  The boyf and I decided against starters, we're trying to be healthy (at a burger joint? I know!) however we immediately regretted this decision when we saw a tray of mouth wateringly good looking chicken wings get delivered to the table next to us!  We both ordered the same main which we NEVER do but The Piggy Burger sounded too good to share, we wanted one each! The food was far more delicious than I expected and at seriously reasonable prices will probably have me going back weekly.

The chipotle sauce was full of smoky barbecue flavour.  If you're a Man v Food fan like me you'll notice the Habanero sauce on the right, one of the worlds hottest chilli sauces!  We manned up and tried the tiniest amount... FIRE.

The last few mouthfuls of sweet brioche bun were too much for me to handle








BROOK'S DINER

Sunday saw most of us Brit's snowed in with the overnight snowfall throwing us into panic.  Not me.  I don't let a little snow stand in the way of father / daughter Sunday's especially when there's football on and food involved.  We watched the Chelsea v Arsenal match (which we won by the way, BIG deal) and then slipped and slided our way to our little Sunday hang out, Brook's Diner.  Brook's is a proper American style diner with the decor and music sending you right back to the 50's.  The menu has all the good usual's:  burgers, ribs, wings, milkshakes etc  Brooke's is family run with super friendly staff who always make you feel at home. Visit Brook's here to take a look around their website.



I had the 3 B burger. Beef, Bacon & Blue Cheese oh my! (We had BBQ wings to start but devoured them before I could take a snap!)

Daddy had a rack of BBQ ribs.  Look at him sitting patiently, arms folded waiting to tuck in.

The side of Onion Rings were insanely good.

Fake snowball fight on the way to the car... until he threw the snowball at me and hit my Marc Jacobs... Not impressed!

Hair caught over the ear muff. Annoying.

WAHACA

Just before Christmas the girls and I had an outing to go and see Viva Forever, the Spice Girls musical.  I can't talk about the play for fear of it bringing up memories I would rather forget, so I thought I'd blog about the food we had before the show instead.  We visited the Wahaca in Soho for a taste of the best Mexican market style food.  The location makes for a busy restaurant with a buzz in the atmosphere thanks to a mix of after work and pre-show diners.  The girls had mojito's all around (if you're into cocktails Wahaca make some super delicious ones) and a mixture of food including steak burrito's, sweet potato taquito's, pork taco's and chicken quesedilla's.  You can order food for one like I did, a steak burrito which at 6.95 is super cheap and very filling or smaller plates to share amongst you.  I highly recommend Wahaca as a relatively cheap, easy and delicious place to eat some of the best Mexican.  What are you waiting for? Andale!
