REVIEW: Blues Kitchen, Camden

REVIEW: Blues Kitchen, Camden

blues-kitchen-food-july-2013-WEB-950x520

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.

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.
