London is one of the undisputed kings of international cuisine. One such selection is the delicious Southern American comfort food that caters to everything your stomach desires, but your personal trainer hates. Camden provides one such hub for all things Southern with their stand out venue, The Blues Kitchen.

The Blues Kitchen, as the name suggests, plates up a variety of quality comfort food from the likes of hot wings to pulled pork burgers and everything in-between. The venue also hosts a variety of amazing local and international rock n roll and blues musicians as well as album launches. To be up to speed on their latest offerings visit their website listed below.

When you step into The Blues Kitchen it is as if you have been transported to Nashville. The decor is comprised of an impressive cosmopolitan mix of 50's American diner, with contemporary Southern style bar and rustic exterior finish (the outside of course). All in all a cosy venue that is abuzz with fantastic tunes and a lively atmosphere.

I decided to check this restaurant out for myself and headed over with a friend. We were seated in a comfy corner booth and received the menu promptly from a very informative waiter. Before we knew it, we had ordered a side of Sweet Potato Fries, a Pulled Pork Sandwich - which had been pulled and slow smoked for 12 hours and with BBQ sauce in a brioche bun. My palate was after a small spicy dish, so I decided to vote for the BBQ Wings with Hot Sauce. We both shared the Onion Rings.

The food came out promptly and was of a high standard for your quick-turn-around dishes. The pork sandwich was succulent and smokey, whilst the BBQ wings were so flavoursome I could taste them on my breath 5 hours later. Onion rings, as you can imagine, were large and crunchy, only a few of these were eaten considering we were full after our dishes.

The Blues Kitchen is also located in Shoreditch and provides the same gastronomical sensation as its Camden counterpart. Piece of advice is to book a table at the restaurant if you can. The venue fills up quickly and you may find yourself waiting at the bar for a table...not that there is anything wrong with that.

I agree with Fiona about the sweet potato fries - and I don't even like sweet potato.
