After my last food coma at Pitt Cue, as a group we were advised to try Duke's Brew and Que. If you wanted BBQ style food, with pulled pork and other such friends then this was the place to visit. Oh my oh my, what a visit it was.
I've just now woken up from my food coma. Duke's do not need to waste time with starters or anything to get you ready for the main course. The main course is the attraction and these are platters of meat. The options are a 23oz beef rib, a plate of pork ribs, steak and a stew. The burgers were there too and as much as I love them, they weren't given a glance on this visit.
I ordered The greatest hits meal and this was the stand out option for me. A word of note, this should ideally be shared. This plate or tray of food come with all true classics. A 12oz beef rib, a pork rib and pulled pork. These three huge portions of meat are sided with coleslaw and pickled onions. Not stuffed and finished by one slim Jim like me. I was proud of my accomplishment in finishing it all off and to be honest i had to.
The pulled pork here was probably the best I have ever had and I made sure it was the last thing in my mouth. The ribs, beef and pork were meaty and tasty and were really good. Although a BBQ establishment like Pitt Cue, Duke's provides you with a different experience and level of dining. Here is for those pure meat eaters who are probably looking for the quantity. The quality is definitely here too but maybe that refined quality that Pitt Cue has isn't here.
I love that London has amazing food places everywhere. North, East, South and West, and all providing us with unbeliavable cuisines and establishments. Thank you Duke's Brew and Que and Dalston for hosting us. This was epic.
