Blackstrap BBQ

*Flash review alert*

Blackstrap BBQ is a great little place that is relatively new, located in the heart of Wellington Street in Verdun. As y'all know, I've been walking up there (you know, weekly walk and all...oh boy am I pathetic!) and discovering new restaurants for lunch time. 

I'd been there once before and had enjoyed it and my friend Cam who I went for a walk with today had never been so I was like hells to the yes, we are going! We got there at around 12h30... so prime lunch time, therefore the tiny place of around 30 seats was full! Iz ok! We waited maybe 5 or 6 minutes before ordering (you order at the counter and then you wait for your name) and then waited another 5 or 6 minutes before getting our food. And, cool thing, they serve the food in metal containers so no breaking of dishes!

The kitchen was right in front of us so we got to see the action up front. I LOVE it when you can see the kitchen. I mean, I don't like working in that type of kitchen but you know...

Last time I went to Blackstrap BBQ, we ate like big ass pigs (huh, maybe that's where I got my big ass...) so this time, I wanted to kind of limit it to ONE thing, you know, in an effort to have a smaller ass.


-Pulled beef
-Great taste
-Marinated onions a great addition
-Great brioche-like sweet bread
-A bit too much liquid in there

Brisket sandwich

-Meat a tad dry
-Great bread (made at a local shop called Léché)
-Adding either the sweet or hot Blackstrap BBQ sauce (greatness by the way) makes it great
-Coleslaw not acidic enough¸

Pretty much everything is made in house which is wonderful! They have a smoker at the back and when they are outta meat, WE are outta meat :(

And now, the score!

Food: 7

Great place and I will FOSHO be going back on my weekly treck to Wellington!
