REVIEW: Blues Kitchen, Camden
Currently running a collaboration with foodie stalwarts Pizza Pilgrims, the people behind Blues Kitchen know exactly what they’re doing – and it’s usually something new and exciting.
A stupidly good selection of Bourbon, whiskey and rye, meltingly-soft, slow-cooked meats and killer live music equal the perfect place to blow off steam midweek (or any day, if we’re really honest). This place takes you having a toe-tappin’ time very seriously, and there’s little they won’t do to make that happen.
The menu is big on flavour – our giant Cajun shrimp arrived with a hearty Creole mustard dip, paired with sweet Padron peppers, hot and crunchy with all the salt. Checking out the rest of the menu, picking a winner is crazy-difficult for meat lovers – though the current collab with Pizza Pilgrims speaks for itself. We’ll let Instagram do the talking.
We were gonna wait til Monday to announce but we’re too excited! In collaboration with @pizzapilgrims may we present our Feb BOTM, THE PILGRIM: Dry-aged Angus & Shorthorn steak patty on a parmesan bun with smoked buffalo mozzarella, nduja melt, fresh basil & San Marzano tomato ketchup. Topped with a truffle mac’n’cheese arancini for good measure 🍔🎉🎉#getinmymouth #bom #botm #arancini #mmm #foodporn
Uh, yeah. This is some next-level shiz. Having seen another table’s order, we were tempted by the beef short rib, slow-smoked for a grand total of 16 hours, served with piping hot skinny fries and slaw. Insanely big, insanely indulgent – just do it.
A couple of Smithson ciders and you’re ready to join the already swaying crowd – that is, unless you’ve seen the dessert menu. It’s wise to leave a little space to indulge, what with the likes of Oreo doughnuts (yes, OREO DOUGHNUTS) within your grasp. If you can still move afterwards, we suggest you stick around and party – because here, the fun literally never stops.
