I may have mentioned before but I enjoy watching cooking TV shows and one I watched a couple of years ago was Lorraine Pascal. On one of her TV shows, she was showing the new popular trend (especially in London) of street food. One of the street food vendors was called Rib Man. He cooked ribs for a ridiculously long time (10 hours or so) in his special rub. He then stripped the ribs of the meat and put the meat it in a bun.
The rib sandwich looked delicious and a few weeks ago I got to try it. My girlfriend and I went to Brick lane Market on a Sunday recently, to look around and more importantly try one of these rib sandwiches.
We looked around and saw lots of things – sunglasses, bike tools, Mexican wrestling mask, smoothies, food, food, food, shoe laces and clothes just to name a few. The three most interesting items I saw was a playstation one, a woman’s wet suit and 2 ski boots (all on different stalls). There was also a person busking by playing guitar, singing and playing a childrens drum kit all at the same time!
After exploring, we bought a rib sandwich from the Rib Man, sat down and ate it.
We both had the sandwich with his homemade chilli sauce. The sauce was hot. The sandwich was tasty! I thought the meat was generous. The price was expensive. £7. I’m not quite used to paying that for a sandwich but one must treat themselves occasionally. I enjoyed it as a one-off.
From one sandwich to another. I made myself a steak sandwich for lunch and it was so tasty!
