It may have been the first week of January, but Blasmin was not quite ready to shake off the sense of indulgence synonymous with Christmas just yet.
Temperatures significantly dropping, and the drizzle consistently miserable, Blasmin was looking for an indulgence of the comforting type. Luckily, Blues Kitchen Brixton was at the top of the to-eat-at list for Blasmin and Mattias, and boy did they eat.
Stepping in to the industrial style bar and restaurant, a stone’s through from Brixton station, a mix of Americana memorabilia and soft lighting, exposed brick and tile and red leather booths and retro w/cs set the tone for the evening. Tight black jeans and crop top types mingled with beards and the manbuns sipping the most delicious frozen margaritas and authentic Jim Beam whiskey for a real taste of the south.
Blasmin, unafraid to get her fingers dirty, tucked into spicy buffalo wings with blue cheese dip to start and there was a tag of war of politeness between her and Mattias for the last one. They very diplomatically decided to share. The mains were show stoppers- half a lobster, drenched in garlic butter with crispy fries and in-between chugging a peanut butter and chocolate milkshake, Mattias got his face sticky with two types of ribs. Their complete decorum disappeared somewhere after the third marghirta…
Then there was dessert. cream, icecream, meringue, chocolate, pecans and some blueberries to make you feel a little less guilty. This time, there was no question of sharing. Dear lord!
If your gluttony doesn’t get the better of you, head upstairs and dance it off with their live DJ and bands on weekends.
I guess diets can always start next Monday right?
Go to impress a date, ribs with the boys or if impartial to alcoholic slush puppies.
Don’t go if you are having lettuce for lunch.
£10 ribs on Tuesday
