We were invited to dine at the Tweet4aTable pop-up at Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, an chance to sample some of the Co-op’s new range.
We settle down to refreshing and cooling drinks of cream soda and cloudy lemonade.
As we couldn’t decide what to have we got a couple of Holey Moleys (BBQ pulled pork, BBQ sauce, Gruyère cheese, American coleslaw in a brioche bun) and Head Honchos (BBQ pulled pork, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, sweet fried onions in a brioche bun) to share, of course, accompanied by the obligatory cheese chilli fries and onion rings.
The soft brioche buns had been toasted nicely, but unfortunately the pulled pork was covered in a slightly too sweet BBQ sauce which overpowered the Gruyère cheese, and the summery guacamole and salsa flavours. Fab cheese chilli fries and crispy, sweet onion rings which took us right back to our travels in the USA.
Thank you to Hannah for looking after us during our visit.
It was a beautiful sunny day when we visited and so we sat outside on their picnic benches and enjoyed our lemon and coffee desserts (similar to lemon posset and tiramisu in flavours) – both a perfect end to the meal.
Check out their next stops on the Tweet4aTable 2014 tour. If you can’t make it along all the food we ate is available to buy at the Co-op so you can re-create this meal yourself (and frankly I think the chilli cheese fries are best eaten in the privacy of your home, things got a little messy!)
