A Posh BBQ Joint

I'm not force-feeding myself a steak at four thirty to save a couple bucks, I'll tell you that! 
Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Cadillac”) 

I got my friends Jason and Richard and Peter came back from Singapore for a weekend and we decided to go out for some drinks and food. As Jason is from Texas I decided BBQ was in order. The place Blue Boar Smokehouse, an upscale, quite nice, dark colours restaurant offering British seasonal ingredients to give a twits to the traditional American BBQ. 

Blue Boar
We started with the Blue Boar ribs, they were amazing. Meaty, juicy, and tender. They are like butter, so you will end licking the bones. Great seasoning, intense spices. The meat is smoked over fruity wood chips, marinated, and then charcoaled. The result a perfect finger licking ribs. 

Ribs
Our main was the Tomahawk steak. The house specialty, a monster steak with 32 ounces, perfectly cooked medium rare, perfect flavour, the best way to describe it is just succulent. 

Tomahawk
As a side we got creamy greens with shredded ribs, really nice, perfect indulgence, guilty but tasty pleasure. We washed down the food with a lovely Chianti Nipozzano Riserva 2009, a revelation, it was absolutely fantastic.

Greens
Wine
All in all a perfect meal, great food, nice drinks, service was ok, a bit hectic they should relax a bit but overall great experience.

Tomagram!
