SquareMeal Review of Spit & Roast at the Princess Alice

Another street truck turned part-time pub resident, Spit & Roast is planning to hang around until Easter 2013, serving its wares in takeaway containers to the punters who frequent this Aldgate boozer. Seating is at communal benches, and the menu dishes up everything from pulled oxtail on crisp toast with endive to best-selling crunchy buttermilk-fried chicken pieces and Blythburgh pork belly baps with stuffing and Memphis BBQ sauce. Also look for ‘big wings’ with Stichelton cheese dip, chicharones (twice-cooked pork rinds) with apple sauce and watercress, cornbread muffins and Black Forest gâteau for the sweet-toothed brigade. On Sundays, the owners crank up the rotisserie spit for a selection of traditional roasts served with veg and proper gravy. No bookings.
