Pit Cue Co. occupied a quiet corner just off the busy Carnaby street. The facade is just as you would expect from this cool, hip area. It has a deceptively simple but well thought out decor, with it's narrow counter, accompanying by a few leather covered high stools. More seating are available downstairs but apparent this small venue only sit 30 diners, hence the no reservation policy. This is obviously designed to go with the relaxed and 'grab-and-go' attitude.
I didn't have to wait too long before I was let in and shown to a spot in the corner. This being my first visit, I asked for recommendations from the waiter/bartender.
'Oh! You definitely got the try the pulled pork and the chipotle slaw too, it's my favourite. It's really good.'
I kindly obliged, and decided to order a burnt end mash on top of that and a pint of 'whatever' draught beer. In case you are wondering, that is the name of the beer on the menu.
The chipotle slaw did not disappoint, a hidden spicy kick that gradually built up with each bite of the crunchy vegetables. A delight indeed. Even the burnt end mash, top with beef brisket bits and rich barbecue sauce, was creamy and definitely one of the best mash I have ever tasted.
My bill came to £17.45 with one main, an additional side and a pint of beer.
