I was invited down to the opening of The SmokeHouse down near Deansgate on Thursday I dragged along my vlogger mate Jasmin.
To be honest, I am not the biggest meat eater haha. I don’t eat steak or anything too meaty. I have thought about going veggie a few times.
However, this place was actually really good.
The head chef is Jason Latham – a specialist in smoking and grilling. The food is all cooked really slow to make it extra tender and is cooked in small batches. The menu includes – St Louis spare ribs, brisket and burnt ends, king smoked ribs and a selection of meaty burgers (not for the faint hearted). For all the beer lovers – they are the second bar to stock Pilsner tank beer.
The decor is clean and industrial, it is pretty dark inside which could feel quite cosy during the winter.
We started with each prosecco cocktails then they brought out nachos covered in cheese, guacamole and chillies, grilled to perfection. My friend Jasmin, who is currently working towards a fitness goal, didn’t drink but she couldn’t resist a few nachoooos!
After came a huge pulled pork sandwich, I don’t eat much pork as it has to be PERFECT, this was. It was covered in BBQ sauce and cheese (again) Seriously, by now, I was super full.
Next chicken wings, the meat fell of the bone. they came with a random piece of watermelon on the side, which was a little strange I wont lie.
The atmosphere quickly grew, the music got louder and there was alot of girls in shoes which I could only dream of walking in. Never one to pick pain over comfort, I wore my trusty reebok classics. You could say I didn’t fit quite in.
In the toilets, a few girls were making alot of noise about a couple from Love Island there? I don’t watch it but people seemed pretty excited about it.
As music started to get louder and the people got drunker, me and Jasmin made a swift exit, our tummy’s full and satisfied.
