Just when you think you've seen it all in London, a place like this choo choo chooses to come along.
This quirky, handmade American railway wagon was built in 2013 and has since been housed in Shoreditch, serving smokey Southern BBQ... oh, and it's BYOB.
The unique concept comes from Caboose, and is reminiscent of old timey, outlaw country wagons from the Wild West. Befitting the cowboy-esque setting, the restaurant specialises in slow-cooked burgers such as The Fat Controller, made with 10 hour pulled pork that’s smoked over fruit wood, and topped with Jalapeno slaw, homemade BBQ sauce and smoked cheddar. There’s also the very tempting 3:10 to Yuma with 12 hour sliced beef brisket smoked over Hickory wood chips, served with gem lettuce, house pickle, BBQ sauce, mustard and blue cheese, along with a number of sides and veggie options.
To really make the space your own? Caboose offer a BYOB policy and even gives guests full control of the speaker system. With prices at £35 per person for three courses including BYOB, we’ll be hitting up the offy faster than you can say yee-haw.
To experience Caboose for yourselves, head to The Big Red Train Carriage, Ely's Yard, Dray Walk, E1 6QR. It seats a maximum of 13 people, costs £35 per person and has a corkage surcharge of £5 per person.
