Last night on Tuesday March 11th I finally made it to the Pop-up Smokehouse at Obar on Braustone Gate Leicester. I have wanted to go since it last popped-up just before Christmas and this was my first chance.
I tried totake some photos, but I’m afraid the quality was pretty poor because the lighting is low and atmospheric so instead I’ve linked to some other local bloggers which have lots photos. Links are at the bottom of this post.
There were three of us, and we ate:
– 14hour smoked Pulled pork and pull pork chilli
(Unfortunately the 12 hour smoked brisket was sold out else that would be of been ordered!)
– Mash & Gravy
– Purple spouting Broccoli
– BBQ beans
The waitress was fab, super friendly and had sampled all of the food so gave us some great advice on what to order.
I had the pulled pork which was lush and had some lovely super crispy bits in which I loved. The broccoli was supposed to come with a dressing but unfortunately you couldn’t taste it, because it was wet from being boiled. Though it was cooked nicely. The mash on the other hand was amazing – very buttery. The ribs where the star of the table. I LOVE ribs and these were honestly the BEST RIBS I have ever tasted. You only get two which I initially thought was a little stingy but we all left full, so full in fact that we didn’t have room for pudding! And so, I think the portions are just the right size as they are designed to eat with a side dish.

It’s a beautiful life rating:
Atmosphere 10/10 (it was a bit quiet)

You’d like a more thorough review of the Smoke House I found these two local blogs which both do a good job of describing the food & have more pictures:
We paid for our meal and this review is completely independent.
