Coqbull Soho chicken licken and moolicious food

Coqbull Soho is a restaurant located right in the middle of the vibrant Soho in London who serves free range Norfolk chicken and burgers as well as vegan dishes. They have four floors including a roof top terrace with a fully catered bar making it a perfect place to visit no matter what the weather.

Using free range to me is very important as it means that the animal was free to roam outdoors rather than being confined in cages or enclosures. They also enjoy finer feeds which means that they are healthier.

I love chicken and burgers so to have a restaurant which is dedicated to serving both is great. Also the best thing is that all their meat is sourced from The Butchers Block within London who sources the best free range meat within the UK. They are a third generation family of butchers who are committed to serving the best of British produce as all their meat is free range.

Did you know that eating free range or organic chicken meat is better for you as it generally has a higher proportion of omega-3 fatty acids compared with intensively reared chicken meat, with a similar ratio of omega-6 to omega-3. Eating free range beef is also a plus as instead of the cows being fed grains they feed on grass which is high in key nutrients like omega-3s and vitamin B. So free range beef is much leaner, healthier and tastes a lot better than grain fed beef.

Courtesy of Coqbull I was invited to sample their great tasting free range chicken and burgers.

The Lucky Club enjoy a Bao Bun home kit at home

Still stuck at home due to the pandemic and with government restrictions not allowing restaurants to open their doors, cooking at home is becoming a little boring cooking the same dishes, over and over, week in week out. Thanks to The Lucky Club they are now open for home delivery delivering their Bao Bun Home Kits across the UK.

Breakfast and lunchtime for me is the worst time of the day when it comes to cooking as I can’t eat the usual popular things such as cereals, eggs, and sandwiches so I tend to skip breakfast. However The Lucky Club at home now has made this dilemma of mine easier with their Boozy Bao Brunch. It comes with so many different fillings, meat, fish, tofu, vegetables, herbs and sauces.

I was gifted their Boozy Bao Brunch on a courtesy basis to try at home.

The Lucky club at home

The Lucky Club venue opened up back in 2018 within Mayfair bringing to London their signature cocktails and their Bao Buns along with entertainment and music.

At present they are closed due to the pandemic however thanks to their at home service everyone can still enjoy their Boozy Bao Brunch at home.

Steak and more steak – Bar + Block

This new Bar + Block in Kings Cross which has recently opened joins the other existing Birmingham and Whiteley restaurants.  There is also another new Bar + Block to open soon in Bath.

Bar + Block in Kings Cross

Bar + Block in Kings Cross shares it’s space within Premier Inn.  Upon entering the restaurant entrance you firstly come across a bar area before getting to the reception desk.  The staff are all very friendly and welcoming.  The restaurant area is quite a large open space with a number of lovely wooden tables dotted around and everything is beige/wooden colours making the place very relaxing on the eyes.  I went along with one of my blogger friends Gemma and we sat in one of the comfy booths on the side which had a window looking out into the reception area of Premier Inn. We also could see the chefs open Kitchen area easily from where we was sat.  I love open kitchen areas as I so love watch the chefs cook. We were firstly presented with a bread basket that consisted of several different types of bread which was lovely and very fresh however we did not get a piece of each different style of bread so we had to break in half each piece which was strange I thought.  Plus there was melted butter in the bottom of the cup holding the bread.
