Worthwhile cheat meals

We all like to cheat every once in a while, right? And now I’m talking strictly about food, you perverts..! I try to eat as healthy as I can during the week, but I often pig out during the weekend. But the thing is that if you want to eat something unhealthy you should make it worthwhile, right..? Here are a few suggestions where making an exception is really worth it!

Chök: This place and their donuts and cronuts are the real deal. There is lots of choice and something for everyone. Read the review here.

Big Al’s: So you might be craving a big fat burger now and then between your fat-free salads. This is where you should get it! The burger patty is so tasty, I don’t know what they do to them to make them so flavorful. And the burgers are huge, too. If you manage to finish the Widowmaker you get your picture on the wall! The curly fries are great and I challenge you to gulp down a milkshake too..! More on Big Al’s here.

Black Lab: Go here for their pork belly buns, their beer-battered ribs and the enormous burger. Add a craft beer brewed on location too and you’re good to go. Review of Black Lab here.

Oma Bistró: You can get healthy food here too, but if you feel you’re worth a big piece of cake and an Oreo smoothie then this is the place for you. They have a table full of delicious-looking cakes and I can tell you it’s pretty difficult to choose. The Oreo cheesecake is fantastic though. More on Oma Bistró here.

Parking Pizza: If you crave pizza you want it to be a good one, right? I think it doesn’t get better than Parking Pizza. I’m not big on crusts, but this one is delicious. And the toppings… My absolute favorite is the one with fontina cheese, egg (yolkporn galore!), Parmesan and truffle. One of the best pizzas I’ve EVER had. Unfortunately for all of us trying to be healthy they also deliver… Check out if you’re in their delivery zone through Take Eat Easy. Read my review on Parking Pizza here.

Oriol Balaguer: These guys won a prize for the best croissant a couple of years back, and I see why. Ask for the hazelnut cream filled croissant and it takes you to heaven and back in a few flaky bites.

Chivuo’s: I’ve talked about burgers before in this list, but let’s not forget about Chivuo’s. Their burger is fantastic, so is their pulled pork sandwich, their tuna melt, their cheesy potato wedges and now their seasonal Smoked Pancetta Cheeseburger that takes the burger game to a whole new level. You’re worth it. Review of Chivuo’s here.

Lukumas: These greek-style donuts are so decadent, and so worth the cheat. Their light and fluffy, and they come in many different flavors and fillings. My favorite is the little doughnut hole filled with white chocolate. And considering it’s small it’s not such a huge cheat, right? Read my post on Lukumas here.

Baluard Bakery: Their almond croissant is legendary. I dare you not to try it..!

Trópico: When I'm doing the healthy thing one thing I crave is a proper brunch. In Trópico you have the real deal, with pancakes and all. A proper cheat brunch! Read more on Trópico here.

Picnic Restaurant: French Toast anyone? Now that's what I call a cheat meal! Picnic Restaurant makes a mean French Toast, and it's huge too. Wash it down with a vodka-infused lemonade. Read more on Picnic here!

La Marquise Decadente: Looks like a Russian tea room, AND it's filled with amazing cakes inspired from kitchens from all over the world. The cakes are unforgettable.
