The restaurant really does boast the best view of the Olympic stadium. There is something very soothing about the whole building, which also boasts its own spacious roof-top gallery of local artwork.
But… when the venue comes second to what you are eating, then you know you are eating good food and that's when you understand provenance.
We sampled just about the softest smoked salmon we have ever tasted (which you can purchase online here). As suppliers to Chop'd, you'll find H. Forman's delicious salmon on the menu, with a new Spring addition (available from 1st May) - sesame salmon and orange salad - where the salmon is cured with lime, lemon and sesame oil.
The Thai tofu noodle salad was one of my favourites. Being new to tofu I didn't know what to expect, but it was so soft and delicious that I know we'll be using this ingredient again. The tofu is made locally by Neil in Brick Lane.
It's part of our philosophy to eat food we love using good ingredients.
Using good ingredients actually helps us keep the weight off because we find ourselves savouring every mouthful.
NB: I haven't been paid to blog any of this.We just love food - and migrate to the food we love.
***Do you know how many calories you are allowed each day? Once we found out, our weight loss really began to take shape.
Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
