Superfood bowls, Dream Theatre and sightseeing - here's what I got up too in London this weekend

February 25, 2020

If you've read my blog for a while, then you'll know I'm a fan of a city break. So I decided to book myself a mini getaway to London as part of my boyfriends birthday celebrations.

For his 28th birthday, I surprised with a meal reservation and Gordon Ramsay's Bread Street Kitchen restaurant and two tickets to see Dream Theatre at Hammersmith Apollo. So, we decided to make a trip out of it and stay there overnight.

The meal itself was incredible. I mean the number of times we both lusted to try a beef wellington finally came true, and we were the only Hells kitchen fans in the restaurant as we saw a woman wearing a hoody from the show. The dish was worth every penny and the hype that came along with it. The pastry was fresh, the meat was seasoned beautifully, and the mash and sides were delicious. For dessert, we didn't order anything as I had already preplanned a little sweet treat to come to the table which the staff carefully had timed to surprised my other half when he was least expecting it. We had a fresh-baked brownie with some homemade salted caramel ice cream as a treat for the end of the night! On top of having a freshly made starter, main and dessert we had a brilliant service experience! So if you fancy a lovely dinner date experience with your girlfriend, boyfriend or friends I highly recommend the Bread Street Kitchen!

The following day we woke up and went to the gym and used the spa. I jumped onto the opportunity to fit one of my workouts in that Laura has scheduled in for me this month along with my physiotherapy exercises to help bring back mobility to my knee. I also had a little swim and relaxed in the sauna for a good five minutes before heading back to our room to get change and go out and explore.

After a quick shower and restyle of my hair, I got myself layered up in a sensible outfit which was perfect for the colder weather in London. I wore a full vintage look which was comfortable and practical to wear while exploring London Bridge, Borough Market and of course snacking on some delicious street food. But before that, we made sure that we had a nutritiously filled breakfast which was perfect to have after a morning workout.

I tucked into my first breakfast bowl at Amber, which was filled with antitoxin fruits like blueberries, high protein Greek yoghurt and homemade granola. This fruity mix gave me same breakfast inspiration which I look forward to sharing with you all for some food prep inspiration.

In the afternoon we stepped out and walked along the Thames and explored Borough Market and the Tower of London. Strolling around the city just by the water in the sunshine was incredibly peaceful and definitely the type of wind-down I needed after quite a busy week. 

I treated myself to another Doughnut Time treat called "ice ice baby" which was vegan and cookie dough flavoured. It was the perfect sweet treat I needed just before the Dream Theatre gig, which was absolutely amazing!
