I TRIED MY FIRST CORNDOG.
I went to Rub originally to try the new food challenge of the Nugzilla, over 80 nuggets in one giant nugget! However, when I queried it not being on the menu and if available – how to order it, the waiter said that it was pretty much impossible to get on the weekend due to it being trend on facebook, over 100 people a day were ordering the Nugzilla since its release leaving Rub short on supplies.
But not to fear, I will be definitely taking on that challenge at some point in the future!
Luckily for me, and for you, Rub is a heaven of good food so there’s enough to choose from to not be disheartened. Between the four of us, we decide to order a “2 person share” menu in the Hungdrawn and Quartered menu which is a platter of various things to try and I recommend as a first experience of Rub Smokehouse. With the 2 person sharer, you get 4 sides to choose from too! We also ordered honey chicken strips as a starter and pork crackling as an appetizer, which I asked for all at once rather than it separate courses. This may have been a mistake.t
There was not much space left on our table!! Corndogs, sliders, brisket, chicken and so much more to try and it was utterly delicious. Everything was full of flavour and cooked to perfection. The brisket was similar to the street vendors of New York I have tried in the past, just perfection.
The one thing I longed to try in my adventures of New York but never got round to was the staple of american fast food : the CORNDOG. Thanks to Rub I finally got to try one and it was as good as I has expected it to be!
The crackling was perfect too and came with apple sauce, as were the honey chicken strips: a great combination of sweet and savoury.
This platter was made for two but I feel between the four of us there was still a bit of food leftover despite me eating as much as I physically could…
Me being amazed at how good this chicken was!
Although I would recommend saving room to dessert as there desserts are just as good…
The waiter was great and played long as we decided to order the dessert without some of our party knowing what the dessert was. I personally asked for the dessert without Reeces pieces and cups like it originally comes with, but thats personal preference and I throughly recommend the one we chose….
The croizonne sharing boat!
The base is croissants, topped with waffles, nutella, brownie, cookie, icecream and strawberries. It was a delicious sharing treat which had hidden pools of nutella throughout. (My mouth is watering just thinking about it) and after eating my body weight in meat it was a great way to change the record, and also mix it up for your tastebuds and quite literally fill yourself to the brim.If you’re more of dessert lover they also do the “kitchen sink” dessert which as you can imagine is huge but did look great!
Rubs itself have lovely staff, places to take photos and selfies with props, a school food hall crossed with american vibe but with food that is so good you’ll forget what food you associate with school and you will not regret the food experience or the chilled atmosphere at Rubs.
10/10 for taste, experience, staff && I can’t wait to eat there or at another Rub as soon as I get the chance!!!
