An impromptu lunch out on Saturday had me and a friend wandering round the city centre hoping to try somewhere new and then the lightbulb went in my head; the latest eatery from the guys behind Salt Dog Slims, El Bandito and Santa Chupitos, was the brand spanking new Slims Pork Chop Express. Fan’s of Big Trouble In Little China will get this reference.

Located next to Salt Dog Slims, the ‘Chop Express’ is dubbed a Smokehouse BBQ. It has the Brooklyn bar feel downstairs with copper pennies making up the floor, there’s some tables located down here but the main eatery is upstairs where we were led by a friendly member of the Slim’s team.

The service from the moment we sat down to when we left was brilliant, with a waitress offering to talk us through the menu and give recommendations if you just can’t decide.

Left; # & Eggs Right; Mac & Cheese

We ordered some root beers whilst we made our eating choices, it was truly one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in a while as the majority of the items on the menu had caught my attention.

The menu consists of a brunch menu served from 12-4pm, sandwiches, small plates and an evening menu served between 5pm-12am. The brunch menu which includes some real delights including the American Style Bacon Stuffed Pancakes served with blueberry butter and cinnamon powdered sugar as well as French Toast and Chicken & Waffles which we spotted on the table next to us and it looked incredible.

I opted for the ‘# & Eggs’; potato, onion hash and 2 eggs. I’d describe the hash as similar to a Spanish omelette and filled with plenty of peppers too, it was delicious. My friend went for the Mac & Cheese small plate which he really enjoyed as the cheese was extra stringy, giving the mac and cheese dish a unique twist. We left satisfied and already anticipating the next trip to try some more of this exciting menu.
