Best Places For Pulled Pork in London
We have been falling in love with American trends for decades. Where some exports from across the pond divide opinion (Justin Bieber), there is one American product we can't help but love...their food. Whether it's whopping great burgers, cheesy chips, hot-dogs, or even fast-food; American food trends always dominate our guilty foodie pleasures. And then enters pulled-pork - the baron of burgers! Slow cooked for hours, marinated in spices and herbs, and resting to allow the juices to soak - resulting in a sensation that must be similar to making out with Wonder Woman. Here are some of our recommended best places for pulled-pork restaurants in London.
