A few like minded male friends of mine have joined together in the hunt for great food in London. We officially call our ‘club’ the RedRawClub (which is something to do with how we like steak cooked). Officially we meet at the start of every month, and experience a new food venue.
This could be anything from a posh restaurant, to a pop-up cafe, or even a street stall. Fundamentally, its about trying new things and getting those taste buds tingling.
So to kick us off, I chose Pitt Cue on the corner of Newburgh Street, Soho. Famous for being tiny, but rammed full of characters and amazing meat it was a place we just had to try. We of course ordered one of everything, and then some seconds so are boots were well and truly filled. To start we ordered rib, chicken wings and loaded skins. Whilst the rib and wings were outstanding, we all saluted the greatness of the skins. Packed full of tasty meat, juices, and cheese these little parcels of joy were reordered (twice!).
Pulled pork and sausages were the order of the day for the main courses, and all came with great sides. We all agreed the meaty beans were the best, and wanted a little more from the spicy slaw.
To polish off the meal we tried the infamous Pickleback shots. This is made of a shot of Bourbon, quickly followed by a shot of sweet pickle juice. Strange, YES, but does it work? Well you will just have to go and find out. My advise is to have it before you stuff your face with lots of food though!
Roll on the next #RedRawClub meeting.
