Who says that Sunday evenings have to be spent wallowing in self pity as the Monday blues kick in? Last weekend I went along to The Blues Kitchen Shoreditch to check out their Sunday night offering and left feeling full to the brim and happily satisfied.
Situated in a two-storey Victorian warehouse The Blues Kitchen is huge and industrial with exposed brickwork, a copper bar top and blues legends painted all over the walls. It has live music 7 days a week, but the real fun is on a Sunday when the Gospel Choir hits the stage. Performing a mix of gospel numbers and traditional songs with a gospel makeover, you’ll find yourself desperate to join in.
Gospel Sundays also offers an all-you-can-eat hog roast for £14, so your stomach is sure to be satisfied. The pork comes accompanied with two perfectly toasted brioche buns with BBQ pit beans, creamed corn and ‘slaw. It’s a challenge to even finish one portion, let alone go back for more!
The full menu is also available, offering everything from the world’s strongest beer Snake Venom at 67.5% or a hearty slab of fried alligator. Even more excitement surrounds the cocktail menu, which boasts over 100 whiskey varieties, so the real party starts after dinner. Make sure you’ve got room for a hardshake though, because who doesn’t love a rum and fudge concoction?
The Blues Kitchen Gospel Sunday is a great way to spend the final hours of your weekend, if you’re hungover then the hog roast is the perfect cure, if you’re feeling fresh then this is a great excuse to make your way through the vast cocktail menu, and if you just fancy some good food with a gospel twist then Gospel Sundays are for you.
