London's Best Ribs

A cage protecting animal’s vital organs, the rib is one of the most tender cuts of meat. Pork ribs are undoubtedly the tastiest rib and when cooked well the sweet meat falls off the bone.

Winner:

The Rib Man

Served from a stall on Brick Lane, The Rib Man’s ribs come in a variety of ways: full racks, half racks, rib meat rolls and rib meat wraps. Order a full rack and prepare to get messy. The impossibly tender meat, which has been cooked three different ways, falls away from the bone. The accompanying homemade Holy F*** sauces are pretty special too, the main ingredient is chilli, so pour a modest dollop on top for an extra kick.

Pitt Cue Co.

Pitt Cue Co. knows pork and they know it well. The St. Louis rib is big and comes coated in their signature homemade sticky BBQ sauce. The meat is excellently succulent and delicately falls apart with the mere poke of a fork.

Porky's

All-American smokehouse Porky’s brings Tennessee to the heart of Camden with its fingerlickin’-good Memphis meaty ribs and tips. Smoked low and oh-so slow over hickory, the juicy pork ribs are glazed in plenty of Porky’s sweet and sticky barbecue sauce and come served over tangy house pickles.
