Summer is coming, and BBQ will soon be front and foremost on all our minds.
If you live in Camden though (or are prepared to travel!) you don’t have to wait that long, as Chalk Farm Road has just got it’s very own smokehouse. Porky’s (excellent name) apparently has proper American smokers and specialises in delicious goodies such as Memphis Style Beef Ribs, 16-hour Smoke Pulled Pork, Juicy Burgers and whole Barbecue Chickens.
The restaurant was launched on the 17th May by husband and wife team Joy and Simon Brigg, who also own Fogg’s, just up the road. Their aim is for Porky’s to
stay true to the rich flavours of Memphis BBQ so that London gets a little of the great drink, great food and great company that’s so plentiful across the Atlantic.
They clearly know what the local customers like and Porky’s sounds like it’s going to be a big success.
I’m craving big, juicy BBQ ribs as I type!
