glo kitchen fitness jingjobs jingnews A bright airy space located at the front of Guanghua Soho, GLO occupies a split level space with seating areas and a fridge stocked full of delicious, healthy goodies. asics whizzer Think green drinks, raw energy balls made from cacao and dates, and house made fresh nut milk. GLO’s official name is GLO Kitchen + Fitness – the kitchen is situated above their gym which provides CrossFit/TRX/GLO Flex classes, making it the perfect place to grab a healthy bite to eat after a gruelling workout. glo kitchen fitness jingjobs jingnews For drinks, we chose a Blueberry Chai smoothie (35 RMB for any regular smoothie, and 45 RMB of any large smoothie) and a Golden Colada Smoothie. Both were good, but the Golden Colada stole the show with its immune-boosting mix of turmeric, ginger, pineapple, banana and coconut milk. The menu is split into 3 main parts: salads, sandwiches and grain bowls. glo kitchen fitness jingjobs jingnews They also have a small All Day Breakfast selection, and from that we chose the Yeast Risen Buckwheat Waffles (38 RMB). We chose the waffle with fig jam and cottage cheese. nike chaussure It was beautifully presented, with a ruby dollop of sticky jam on a perfectly scored waffle. The waffle itself is unsweetened, and has a crisp crust and a chewy interior, making it the perfect base for any topping. The plainness of the waffle allows the tastes of the fig jam and cottage cheese to stand out. asics gel quantum 360 Our only gripe is that we would have liked more of the fruity, moreish jam. glo kitchen fitness jingjobs jingnews We ordered the Roast Tofu and Avocado Wrap (46 RMB) but they were out of the wraps.

The whole wheat baguette we had instead of the wrap was light and fluffy. The Super Greens Texmex Salad (38 RMB for a regular size, 45 RMB for a large), a giant medley of greens, chewy kernels of red rice, sweet pops of sunny corn, salty black olives, radish, cottage cheese and carrots, is topped with a spicy, creamy ranch dressings.

Garlicky, smooth baba ganoush, tomatoes, mushrooms and almonds are mixed with barley, quinoa and red rice, than drizzled with GLO’s incredible black garlic caesar dressing.
