Pitt Cue Co - Southbank SE1
Have I mentioned before how much I love Southbank? I did? Well I'll say it again - I LOVE Southbank and last Sunday was one of those prefect Southbank days. I had been wanting to try out the Pitt Cue Co. BBQ truck under Hungerford Bridge for ages and in fact I had gone down there last week but was too early so this was my second mission (the first time the ever generous Pitt Cue crew gave me a couple of pieces of tasty brisket and some confit onions from their "crew lunch" to keep me happy - how cool is that?). I couldn't believe it when the other half and I got there at 1pm a couple of Sunday's ago and the guys at Pitt Cue told me they had been caught in a traffic jam on the way to set up so were running late - I felt like the fates were trying to stop me sampling that BBQ loveliness. Luckily the guys from Milk & Honey had set up a cocktail stall next door (the cocktails were actually raising money for Pitt Cue to buy a new smoker) so we sampled some mighty fine gin based beverages while we waited for Pitt Cue to get going. We got a little squiffy on the delicious cocktails and just in time Pitt Cue began serving their amazing BBQ goodness - the pulled pork is their signature dish and it comes with black beans, homemade crunchy coleslaw and the aforementioned confit onions. This is seriously good food - in fact it's groan out loud good (although that could have been the cocktails talking). Trust me on this - if you are in the vicinity of Waterloo, just GO!
