SquareMeal Review of Hotbox

From successful street-food venture to fully-fledged restaurant, Hotbox is a welcome addition to London’s burgeoning barbecue-loving dude-food scene. Delectably seasoned smoked meats are the forte. Try the Hotbox piggy burger with American cheese, pulled pork, BBQ sauce, and pickled red onion for a prime cut of the meat on the menu. Rib fiends might prefer a full serving of the sticky, satisfying pork ribs, or the succulent, fall-off-the-bone beef short rib. Sides range from healthier greens and sweet-potato fries through to a heart-stopping (in both senses) smoked mac & cheese. Finish with the molten chilli chocolate dessert: a gooey plate of untold happiness. There’s a fun and friendly buzz to this enterprise, despite the uncomfortable long wooden benches and tables in the dimly lit room – and it can be difficult to hear your dining partner when the music is cranked up. After a meal, head for the basement cocktail and craft-beer den, 46 & Mercy.

Very good food, especially the ribs, in a casual atmosphere. Short menu but all good, and the local beers are excellent.

Very good food and service was good. The mutton was really good and short rib excellent. Short menu but this means the food is well prepared. Will go again to try some of the other items.
