Square Meal Review of Porky's Camden ?

Inspired by their road trips across America, Joy and Simon Brigg decided to bring the ‘sweet tastes of southern soul food’ to Camden with this funky joint dedicated to smoky porcine pleasures and rocking Tennessee tunes. After a ‘warm-up’ of cheesy corn hush puppies or a mug of chilli, move on to the ‘main act’ – slow-cooked meaty ribs with the house sauce, 18-hour pulled pork, half a BBQ chicken or ‘good licks’ such as spicy fried catfish, all served in classic enamel dishes. The ‘sideshow’ comprises creamed spinach, fried sweet potatoes and suchlike, while ‘encores’ might feature baked vanilla cheesecake or apple cobbler. To drink, expect picklebacks, craft beers, bourbons, a fistful of wines and various Americana cocktails such as jam julep or spicy chihuahua (Sauza Plata Tequila, espresso, agave syrup and chilli). “Giant portions, fantastic value”, exclaimed one convert.

This sounded like a good deal so I agreed. But then I had a look at the menu. And discovered that Porky's is so cheap it is almost impossible to order a main and two sides and have it total £17. I queried them about this and they said...

  1. In the southern states of the USA, BBQ is king. Meat is treated with reverence and when barbequed, is done using special slow cooked techniques that generally last for 16-18 hours. The result is charred meat that is distinctively smoky and tender. Here in London, the restaurant group Porky’s seeks to capture the essence of Memphis style BBQ by adopting they same slow cooking BBQ approach. And as they do in the Deep South, portions are generous, prices are reasonable and flavours are bold. There is plenty of meat and Porky’s happily caters to the heartiest of carnivores.
