Best ribs in London...is probably underselling it
Location: Sunday Brick Lane, Thursday Kings Cross, Friday Hackney Street Feast
The Rib Man, rib meat in a roll but is it a burger? I looked for the definition of burger;
1. A sandwich consisting of a bun, a cooked beef patty, and often other ingredients such as cheese, onion slices, lettuce, or condiments. Often used in combination: a cheeseburger.
2. A similar sandwich with a nonbeef filling. Often used in combination: a crab burger; a tofu burger.
The Rib Man himself was not around when I ordered, I will assume he was in hiding after Arsenal beating his West Ham 3-1 the day before, but the rib roll was ordered and my decision was then what sauce to go for. I have tasted the Holy F*#k sauce before and it blew my head off so I asked for something with less heat which was their BBQ sauce.
Grub up we took our seats at the Brick Lane Food Village Seating Area.
Its like a little pacman
MEAT - Unbelievably soft with a huge meaty taste that keeps on giving with every bite. The ribs are baby-back ribs from pigs reared on Norfolk and Suffolk farms.I would happily order a mountain of this meat and not stop eating until I burst.
BUN - A beast of a bun, quite dry and slightly crusty which perfectly suits the juicy meat sandwiched between it.
TOPPINGS - BBQ sauce which was a smokey sweet taste that gave the taste buds a nice tingle, but I think next time I will try and brave out the Holy F*#k.
From following the rib man on twitter I know how much love and attention goes into the cooking of these ribs and wow does it show. A perfect ratio of bun to meat is rarely met but that is exactly what you get here.
Having been to Pitt Cue Co. only a couple of weeks ago I feel capable to compare and although very close I think the Rib Man can very proudly say that they are the best ribs in London.
Overall Rating 10/10
