Barbecue London Style

I bought a bottle of BBQ sauce in Memphis. I think the stewardess broke it when she tried to jam it into the overhead compartment
Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Doll”)

The other day I went out with my University mates to catch up over a couple beers and some bites. We ended in Red’s True Barbecue in Shoreditch. The place brings true barbecue to London, low and slows smoked prime cuts, and flavours from Carolina to Texas.

Place is noisy with dimmed lights and smells of smoked meats. We went with the BBQ Feast and washed it down with lone star beers. Flavours were ok but can’t say they are close to the original American barbecue. Meat was a bit dry, there were a couple highs like the cheese and jalapeno sausage and the burnt ends but also some lows like most of the ribs.

Feast Time

Nice place to have some drink with friends and you don’t want to think too much, but not if you want the real deal, in that case I would recommend looking somewhere else.

Coffee Enquiry XLIII: Argentinean Coffee Shop

She published my recipes. I had to close the store, move to Argentina. She ruined my business!

I have been looking for a nice local independent coffee around Chiswick. So I was excited when got into Tamp. An Argentinean coffee place, a brick and wood paradise with coffee, alfajores, and empanadas.

Coffee Time
Great coffee, lovely bites especially the empanadas, and nice staff. Just be patient as they are usually packed.

Machine: San Remo
Score: 5/5

Arrivederci Zucca

Yeah! Like Bizarro Superman. Superman's exact opposite, who lives in the backwards bizarro world. Up is down, down is up, he says hello when he leaves, goodbye when he arrives
Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Bizarro Jerry”)

Recently it was announced that Zucca will be closing down for good on 23 December. So immediately I made a booking to try once more chef Sam Harris cuisine.

Truffle Time
Food was nice and well execute it. The pork belly with anchovies and puntarelle was amazing, same as the classic vitello tonnato, follow it by the special white truffle pasta and an outstanding slow braised ox cheek with yellow polenta and borettane to close the evening.

Ox Cheek
Food was great and service good, hurry up and book your table before they close in December
