The all American Blues Kitchen


As its name suggests the Blues Kitchen is probably best known as a live venue, but the soul food and BBQ influenced menu is well worth checking out.

There is plenty on there – burgers, steaks, gumbo and jambalaya, as well as wings, ribs, chilli and so on – and at around £10 a main it’s not badly priced.

We started with the shrimp which were a triumph, six big and juicy prawns, with just a hint of charred cajun spice and a tangy mustard dip.

With these we had nachos – individually loaded with cheese, salsa and chicken and from now on I may only accept them this way – avoiding as it does the dry, topping-less scraps at the end of the dish.

Pausing only to order a New Orleans beer from the large selection, I tucked into my cheese burger, which was a fine specimen. Tender, well-seasoned and medium rare patty, a creamy blue cheese sauce and good quality home-made ’slaw made for an attractive combination.

To finish, we had a truly epic ice cream sundae, complete with marshmallows, chocolate brownie and fruity bits. Luxurious, but calorific.

The liquor side is pretty impressive too. There is quite a lot of emphasis on Whiskey and Bourbon.

The Blues Kitchen is a good fun, tasty meal, and with so much good live music down there you can stay on and really make a night of it.
