After following several ‘reality’ TV people on Instagram who rave about the place, this week I eventually got to check out Kettlebell Kitchen in Manchester.
I was doing a fitness shoot, and as lunch time (or dinner time as we say in Sunderland) was approaching, the photographer said the magic words… ‘what shall we get for lunch?’
There was mention of a sandwich shop, but I decided to try my luck…
‘It’s probably a long shot ‘cos Manchester is huge, but are we anywhere near Kettlebell Kitchen?’
To my shock and delight, Google Maps revealed we were literally 1.7 miles away! I couldn’t get in my Mini fast enough.
When Katie met Kettlebell Kitchen…
When I got there it was buzzing, jam packed with people sitting in, taking out and several Deliveroo guys collecting orders. I was greeted by the friendliest guy ever…his name was Richard and he turned out to be from South Shields (the town right next door to Sunderland)…what are the chances?
My order was long (I was ordering for 5 people) but the service was quick.
I went for salmon with cauliflower rice, spring onion and mixed veg with a sweet chilli sauce. Of course it would have been rude not to try a dessert, so I had a chocolate orange protein brownie. It was totally lush and was everything I hoped it would be (they soooo need to open one in Sunderland)!
Everyone always thinks that eating healthy food costs a bomb, but all of that came to less than a tenner, and I’d happily pay them 5 days a week as the quality was so good.
If you’re in Manchester, you have to pay them a visit…like seriously, you HAVE to!
