I recently attended a press dinner at the new Joe’s Kitchen in Kentish Town and it didn’t seize to disappoint. Joe’s Kitchen have certain dishes that are only available at the Kentish Town restaurant and was really excited to try the new dishes.
We started off with one of the new dishes for the new chain, Deep Fried Short Rib Meat Loaf with red onion jam, poached egg and dijonnaise. I’d never tried meat loaf let alone fried meat loaf. It was sooo good and I would definitely recommend it.
Also new to the menu was the Gooey Corn Spoon Bread with clotted cream and red Leicester cheese. This was something different and delicious and wasn’t to heavy for a starter leaving me with some room for the following courses.We also had Devilled Eggs which were filled with chicken skin mayonnaise and bacon crumbs. I’d never had devilled eggs like this so this was a nice change. We then had the mains and I was definitely looking forward to one of my favourite dishes from Joe’s Kitchen the Mac and Cheese. We also enjoyed the new Joe’s Chicken dish. The chicken is 24 hour Sweet Tea brined chicken with lemon dust. We also had a combination of ingredients that I’ve never heard of let alone tried. Buckwheat Waffles with Watermelon and bourbon maple syrup. This combo was to go with the chicken which all together tasted pretty good.
We then had Shrimp ‘N’ Grits which contained stoneground cheese grits with shrimps, red onion, melted tomato, shredded house cured bacon and Camden ale jus. I’d never tried it before but really enjoyed it and will definitely get it again.
We then moved onto dessert and had a choice of 3 desserts. The first was a Southern Pecan Pie with Jim Beam Honey cream. This was my favourite dessert out of the 3 as it wasn’t too sweet and was too heavy for a dessert.
The second was an Iced Honeycomb and Chocolate Parfait Sandwich. This was a really nice dessert and I’m a big fan of honeycomb.
And last there was a Peanut Butter Fudge Pie with Chantilly cream. I’m not the biggest fan of peanut butter but this dessert was really nice and the fudge filling was delicious.
I had a great time trying all the new dishes and old-time favourites and will definitely be going again very soon. This restaurant is nearer to me and so gives me another excuse to go to Joe’s Kitchen more often. Thanks for a great night Joe’s Kitchen and Kapranos PR.
