The Blues Kitchen, Shoreditch

Choosing the perfect place to eat in London can sometimes be quite daunting, especially when the pressure is on for arranging a surprise 30th birthday meal. 

So first of all, we had to think about the area to dine in that would be suitable for leading on to post- dinner drinks (not an issue in this city), and then we thought which cuisine would be special and different to dine away in – Cajun-BBQ was our conclusion 💛

As Shoreditch is one of the ‘cooler’ places to go in London, we found this following restaurant ideal and pretty soon came across The Blues Kitchen – eclectic, spacious and offers areas for live blues music, dancing and of course, Cajun-BBQ dining; branches are based in Camden, Brixton and Shoreditch…

The Setting:

With long wooden tables in an urban and industrial setting, this ‘blues’ type restaurant maintained the real Cajun feel in North East London. 

The Menu:

Now for the best bit – food choices! For starters, our party ordered a few of the “Wings & Things” platter, which consisted of buffalo wings, barbecue pork ribs, burnt ends, brisket chilli, sweet potato fries, dips and of course tortilla chips 😍 Oh, and the dip was the most delicious Parmesan & spinach flavour.

The Main:

From a tough choice as seen above, I ended up selecting the Catfish & Prawn Jambalaya for my main course, which came with an authentic Cajun spiced sauce and served in a black hot pot, adding to the cultural dish. 
As the cocktail menu is so exciting, I’m going to leave the list as a surprise for you to discover on your next visit 😉 I will reveal though that the Lychee Martini is a must-have for the fruity fans out there who just love that refreshing drink with a kick 🍸

And it has to be revealed that the Evening Standard voted this place as below:

London’s very own home of BBQ, Blues and Rock N’ Roll ♥️

So there you have it – The Blues Kitchen – ideal for that extra special & authentic experience in North East London, and a great shout for the 30th Birthday Boy who had to down a vanilla milk-shake filled with some exciting & unique alcoholic shots.

Perfect place for a perfect meal 🎉🍽🥂
