    An impossibility I know.

    Fish and Chips? :)

    A light hearted slant on things I suppose. But I suppose in truth it is difficult to find places to eat out that would be compatible with our requirements?

    Nando's do a pretty good range of low carb options :)

    I see we go there a lot. I didn’t realise they did that. But then I wasn’t looking until now.

    My wife’s favourite place in fact.

    Difficult? Not really... Bit of a chore sometimes, but I check menu's online and then add it to the experience: call it anticipation. :)
    We don't have a Nando's here, but yeah, anywhere where there's loads of meat, fish, poultry or veggies... Grill restaurants, Argentine, tapas places, buffets (pick'n'choose what's suitable). Most of the time you can eat anywhere, if you just tell them to hold the spuds or bread, and replace it with extra vegetables or salad. They'd rather alter a dish than throw out perfectly good food. ;)

    You can always ask at any restaurant if they can modify something on their menu - tell them you're allergic to carbohydrates :hilarious:

    That cheesecake looks good. Or is it creme anglais or custard slice....

    I see, yes Tapas. I hadn’t thought of that. We have one just a short drive from here. Thanks.

    Unless everything is covered in a carby sauce you can usually ask to substitute the carby part for extra veg or salad.

    So far I have been able to stay low carb at Wetherspoons, Hungry Horse, Beefeater, Indian, Chinese, Brewers Fayre, Five Guys and a few independents. I just ask for obvious carbs to be replaced with more veggies or a side salad or recently in an Indian restaurant I asked the waitress to ask the chef which curries didn’t have added sugar and what they could provide in the way of veggies in place of rice. I ended up with a lamb bhuna and some stir fried mushrooms :hungry: For a light lunch I have had successful low carb meals at Prét a Manger and Patisserie Valerie (ha ha, bit of a French theme going on there!)

    The 50 day aged 16oz Ribeye at a Miller&Carter is delicious, I tell them to keep the sides although sometimes I'll have the lettuce wedge that comes with it.
