The beef short ribs are succulent, the meaty fibres holding firmly together, but also yielding easily, the fatty bits, soft with out any chewy texture. A faint sweetness, especially in the dark charred and slightly stiff, that made for lovely bites to contrast the tender meat. Good depth in the beefy flavours, a hint of smoke. Onion rings with a light coat of batter, hit my soft spot by emphasisng the sweetness of onions. BBQ (salty, tangy, spicy) sauce on the side; only small dabs are really needed, the meat speaks for itself.

The cajun crayfish and prawn popcorn was ordinary -- crispy, but one the dense side, rather than spring and light. Enjoyable sauce - creamy but appropriately thin, with a pleasant kick to it.

Probably the most recent opening in Brixton Market/Village, and the best of new openings there among the ones I've tried (still haven't been to Cannon & Cannon in BM, as I've already had their fairly nice charcuterie at Borough Market, and the new Jamaican place in BV).
