The Blues Kitchen

I don't know who's idea it was to come here but it for sure was a good one. It was two of my friends' birthdays and we decided to go out celebrate. The original plan was an event but that plan fell through. We therefore ended up at 'The Blues Kitchen' in Brixton.

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was the ambience. The place was dimly lit with colourful high ceiling chandeliers. There was a upper and a lower level. The upper level resembled a restaurant area and the lower level resembled a pub/bar area. Anyway our party was too big to fit on any table so they moved us to a private area for dining. Let's call this area 'the knights of the round table' because it reminded me of exactly that. There were 12 of us and we all could easily hold around the table. The restaurant was serenaded by a live guitarist and I enjoyed the low unfamiliar music which we could distinctly hear in the room.

The menu consisted of mac and cheese, Korean chicken burgers, beef burgers corn bread and fried chicken. Very American minus the Korean chicken burger. The food was good. A 4 out of 5 and that was mostly due to the fried oreo donuts with chocolate sauce. Divine! (I have a sweet tooth don't judge)

The staff was great especially Rachel and Mitch who tended to our every need and give us free shots on the house! We drank so much wine that a girly toilet break was needed and you know us girls never go to the loo alone. This was my one pet peeve about the place. Why are the toilets so far? haha. However when you eventually get there...

They say you can judge a place by it's toilet and I would eat in this one. No foul smells just pure cleanliness. But you know it's selfie time! Just evidence that I actually went there.

I enjoyed this place and would definitely return. I would want try the rest of the menu and see what the other selections are like. I had wine this time so maybe next time some cocktails. Who wants to come along?
