Any foodies who love eating should be well aware of the name Pitt Cue. The original site at Soho was so popular that you will even need to wait for more than an hour to get a table on a weekday for lunch. It has now moved to The City with a much bigger dining room along with a full bar and outdoor space. Not to mention it now takes in bookings, which is music to my ears. The menu is largely built around all kind of BBQ meats, with some unusual and interesting cut such as the lamb hearts and ox tongue. It also has a daily black board with some larger cuts that are great for sharing.

The ox tongue had a wonderful soft texture, the seasoning was also well executed and proven to be a great starter dish. The cured and smoked pork jowl was one of the highlights of the meal, the meat had such a sensational melting texture with a lovely crispiness to it, it was indeed special. The short ribs weighed over 1kg and looked seriously impressive once it arrived on to the table, the powerful smoky aroma was such a delight and the meat was as moist as you can get, the rich and robust savoury taste was really incredible and totally went beyond of my expectation.

The meaty feast at Pitt Cue was such a joyful experience, the setting was modern and comfortable which was something the old site could not offer. On top of that the service was very decent and the food was a notch better than the original Pitt Cue. Simply put, this new Pitt Cue in The City is an upgrade and growth up version, one that is a must try for anyone who is serious about top quality gourmet BBQ. It is one of the very best BBQ restaurant that London has to offer right now.
