Over the next few months I'll be trying Trip Advisors top ten of the 490 rated London restaurants. Tonight we went to number 1 as per the sites default settings. you can filter by price cuisine etc.
Shmokey Rob and sons Southern Eatery. Nice name eh? It is located in the half abandoned mall where Sears Outlet is at Wonderland and Oxford. Do not be scarred away by the surroundings of this dilapidated mall. I'm glad I wasn't! There are only a few things on the menu and they were sold out of one of them, the beef brisket. Anne and I shared a pulled pork sandwich which is on the menu and a pound of wings which surprise! were not on the menu. There are 2 kinds of beer here; bottled pabst blue ribbon in bottles and steam whistle lager on tap. I had the steam whistle served in a plastic beer cup and Anne had white wine served in a water glass. At this point we were really wondering what the hell we had gotten ourselves into and then the food came to the table. The wings were awesome, old school all one piece with the tips still on and a hot sauce with enough kick to be hot but not too much to drown out an awesome taste. The coleslaw was awesome both the side of it we ordered and they also put it on the sandwich which has the best smoked pulled pork I've had yet! For $35 we had an awesome dinner with drinks. I can't wait to finish week 10 so I can return here to try the beef brisket that was sold out!
Next week is no 2 the Kantina Cafe and restaurant out by the airport. I'm told reservations are usually required.
