Square Meal Review of Porky's Bankside ?

A sequel to the highly successful Porky’s Camden, this Bankside offshoot provides more of the same 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, ‘good licks’ such as spicy fried catfish, and assorted ‘hound dogs’ (British pork sausage with fried onions in a bun, plus assorted toppings), all served in classic enamel dishes. The ‘sideshow’ comprises garlic toast, fried sweet potatoes and suchlike, while ‘encores’ come in the shape of baked vanilla cheesecake or brownie sundaes. To drink, expect picklebacks, craft beers, bourbons, a fistful of wines and various Americana cocktails such as Smokes and Rye (Peychaud bitters, liquid smoke, rye, egg white, lime juice and sugar syrup).

Although it wasn’t any of these establishments that we went to review, it was Porky’s BBQ – the home to some good old Tennessee style meat...
