So, this will no doubt be one of many many posts on Yianni Papoutsis' new venture, the #MEATEASY in New Cross, so I will keep it brief. A month ago, Yianni's business was turned upside down when some vagabond stole the meatwagon. Thousands wept.
Now a mere 10 days from idea to end product, the Capital Pub Company has lent him the upstairs of his latest project to cook his line of comestibles indoors, away from nature, until he raises enough cash to get a new meatwagon back on the road. Thanks go to Scott who helped make it all happen.
I was lucky enough to get there on his pre launch test run. Here is just a teaser of what to expect:
Kitchen and Cocktails
The Signature Cheese and Bacon Burger
Chilli Cheese Dog, Mac and Cheese, Buffalo wings
The Chicken Sandwich - Probably my favourite of the night. Amazingly crisp, but succulent and tender on the inside. Bloody amazing.
Doors open on the 12th and will run in the evening to start (opening at about 6ish), although this will change once the kitchen gets up to full speed. I understand why many of you would want to rush to get your burger fix, but the #MEATEASY will be around for at least a couple of months so no real rush. There will be specials, inventions and all sorts. This was a preview so all the grub and drinks were on the house, but I couldn't leave before donating to the "Rebirth of the Meatwagon" fund. Expect to pay about £6 a burger, and less for the peripherals. So go, and once you've been, go again.
More pics here if you fancy it.
