Burger #6: Ninth Ward (Farringdon, London) 74/100

By | General | No Comments

I went to meet someone else who runs a cleaning company this week: they are larger than Gleem, operating in London and BOOMING! His name is Avin, and he shares the same views as I about engagement with cleaners. We met at 11, and before we looked around it was 3pm and definitely time for some lunch! We stepped out from his office, and 2 doors away was the Ninth Ward: a rustic wood and whisky establishment with large plans growing in the windows: We started with their speciality: ‘Filthy fried chicken’…and it certainly was! Chilli, garlic, great breaded mix…

Burger #6: My Mates Barbecue at The Three Tuns 75/100

By | General | 2 Comments

Yesterday it was my friend Phil’s birthday, and so I arranged a Craft Crawl: we started at Moor brewery in St Phillips, and went on a tour of the brewery, being told about the in’s and out’s of the brewing process. We had a few lovely pints before beginning the crawl: along the way we went to The Barley Mow, The Steam Crane and The Hen and Chicken before we rocked up to the Three Tuns to watch England’s first match of the 6 Nations. Wriggle had a deal on: any main, fries and a pint for £8: I git…

Burger #5: Three Brothers 79/100

By | General | No Comments

One of my old favourites was on the cards tonight: with one of my old favourites, someone I work with, Gareth. Another Wriggle! Did I tell you yet: they’ve updated the app: with their best update ever! You can now book up for tomorrow OR the day after! So I’d booked up for a deal: Classic burger and fries for £5: of course I couldn’t resist the upgrade: we added cheese and bacon. I love the atmosphere: always good music, and a classic assortment of stellar beers: guess what, it’s not Dry January anymore! A nice pint of Sharp’s Cornish…

Burger #4: Macdonalds 61/100

By | General | No Comments

That’s right! Any burger blog wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory trip to the Golden Arches. I wasn’t anticipating much from this burger, and have dined with Ronald many many times. Appropriately (and biasely) I didn’t give my dining experience much thought: I left Slovakia at 8am and reached bristol at 8pm in a state of first world famish. I jumped in and ordered my food: it was my first time using their touch screen! The ambience was that of college, with spotty teenaged standing round, wasting time at Macdonalds. Ambience = 3/10 Nevertheless I bought my meal: a double…

Skiing Slovakia

By | General | No Comments

I am writing this from the airplane on the way home from my first ‘lads holiday’. I have just spent the last 4 days as 1 member of a 10 person strong trip to Jasna in Slovakia. We decided that we wanted to go skiing as a group, and Slovakia was #1 on the list of most affordable destinations in Europe: Our flights we were the Wizz air: I’ve never heard of them before, but the seem great. The flights cost £60 return. Our accommodation whilst we were there was from Propaganda: a British owned company. We paid £150 for…

Rippetoes

By | Rippetoes | No Comments

I first discovered compound weights when I was at University back in 2012. My and one of my best friends started to train…hard: we were looking to seriously bulk, and when we read about the concepts of Rippetoes, we were sold. I had been cutting for about 6 months, and had manage to drop my body fat %age very low: I was down to a very low weight for my height: I belive it was 76 or 78kg’s. At 6 feet 3 inches, I shouldn’t be that light: I was ripped but not carrying enough muscle: I wanted that to…

Paleo part 2

By | Paleo | No Comments

So I’ve been in Paleo since January 1st. I do not often weigh myself, and I’m not trying to lose weight, but though it would be a good idea to track this, and I was right: On the first in January, after a gluing us December I weighed myself: 95kg’s (not too bad, and around about my normal weight). Over the next 2 week I kept to the diet (except for my weekly burgers!). Getting carbs was hard, but I substituted with lots of extra virgin olive oil, and felt no hunger or cravings. The added benefit of this is…

Burger #3: Chicken Shack 71/100

By | Burger Me | No Comments

Chicken shack is ANOTHER pop-up restaraunt operating out of The Old Bookshop. The Old Bookshop is still on North street, and still had it’s charmingly eclectic mix of taxidermin and brass instruments posing as chandeliers. The music is well picked. Ambience = 10/10 I had found ANOTHER Wriggle gem to demolish: 2 burgers and chips for £12, and, of course harnessed my ability to upgrade to the ‘big deal burger’. I should probably be comparing the normal prices to determine value for money, but this is my blog and I love promoting Wriggle (no affiliation) so it’s another whopping 10/10…

Burger #2: MEATliquor 71/100

By | Burger Me | No Comments

Monday celebrated the 5 year anniversary of MEAT liquor. The London based chain has just opened up a Bristol restaraunt opposite the canteen. To celebrate their birthday they offered 50% off: you may soon spot a trend: if I spy a discount, I’ll be there! So I ventured down with a friend after work and discovers this:      I    How funky! The black, red and white graffiti decor, and satanical art was complimented by low light, and red neon: this place felt ‘worn’, but not in a dirty way. The music was modern and too cool for me: but obviously…

Burger #1: Smoking Buns 60.5/100

By | Burger Me | No Comments

Paleo is going well, and what better way to spoil myself than to pop into Smoking Buns: a Camden Town based burger restaraunt operating in Bristol as a pop up shop. I had been speaking to Sam Finny of Wriggle fame earlier in the week and he told me that this place was not to be missed: so when I logged into the Wriggle app this morning and found that they were in the app: it was on! With the help of the app, we paid just £12 for 2 burgers and 2 sides: a great start, and a seamless…
