essence express x blok shoreditch
After massive success with their Clapton site, Blok expanded to Shoreditch this year bagging a spot in the swishy Principal Place building. And as well as their kick-ass classes, the gym is also home to a cafe where you can grab some great vegan grub on the go. Essence Express, the takeaway arm of Essence Cuisine, has created a 100% meat, dairy, gluten and refined sugar free menu just for Blok, with chia puddings and turmeric quinoa porridge for brekkie, lunch options like seaweed salad with kimchi, spicy carrot sushi, falafel wraps and raw pad thai bowls, and snacks such as spicy chipotle kale crisps and raw macaroons too. And if you’re after liquid refreshment, they’ve got a whole load of smoothies, shakes and cold-pressed juices on offer.
Best of all, you don’t even have to be a Blok member to hit their cafe as it’s open to the public. So whether you need some post-workout fuel or you just want to pick up a healthy lunch, swing by Blok.[easy-image-collage id=107197]
