On Monday The Handbook headed over to the Kentish Town branch (there are three, Shoreditch, Portobello and Kentish Town) to try […]

The Handbook team headed over to Blue Boar smokehouse to try out their great menu which is inspired by American pit masters but uses only the best British ingredients, think pulled pork, burgers, and steaks. The restaurant itself is dark, with low lighting and decorated with little nods to its American and British inspirations. We started with grilled Caesar salad and the sautéed mushrooms with crispy duck eggs. Both were delicious although the Caesar salad which rather than being tossed together as they usually are came as baby gem lettuce split in half, drizzled in the dressing and parmesan, one […]
