Jamie Oliver’s Barbecoa kitchen branches into grab-and-go

Barbecoa food

London-based Barbecoa, the barbecue steakhouse and butchery founded by Jamie Oliver, has introduced a range of grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches.

The restaurant, which specialises in traditional fire-based cooking, opened five years ago on Watling Street just opposite St Paul’s Cathedral.

Breakfasts will be available from 7am with items such as fruit salad pots, protein balls and almond milk bircher muesli aimed at the health-conscious post-gym brigade. More substantial items such as a molasses-cured BLT bap and a Catherine Wheel sausage and bacon bap will also be available.

Lunches will include Barbecoa’s unique grills, smoke and carefully selected meats from a selection of brisket, pork shoulder or chicken, served with BBQ beans, seven-veg slaw and pickles. Also on the menu will be a buttermilk bun filled to bursting with marinated burnt-ends of pork, slaw, lettuce, mayo and coriander. Vegetarian and fish options will also be available.

A lighter range of freshly made salads will also be on offer including Chicken Caesar, Sabzi and Tuna & bean salads.

In addition to ready-to-eat options, Barbecoa’s signature dry-aged meat can also be pre-ordered to take away and cook at home.

Customers wanting to purchase a beverage can choose from Barbecoa To Go’s local coffee roasters, Alchemy or the Wee Tea Company from Scotland.

  1. Unfortunately it’s not very good. Food is expensive for what you get and doesn’t taste as good as when you buy it and cook it yourself. Even worse they have sacrificed what used to be a fantastic range of meats and cuts for this, so now you can’t even do that! When I went in recently I asked if they had any burgers – was told simply ‘No.’ Then asked if I could purchase short rib instead – another ‘No.’ No attempt to sell me anything else, no explanation or suggestion of when these might be in stock. The lady ‘serving’ was definitely new since the change to the new format and incredibly rude and unhelpful. Have since informed my colleagues who also work in nearby offices not to bother going back, which is a shame as we were all huge fans. Total failure of a business decision, frankly. Would definitely love to hear of an alternative place to get high quality meat nearby.
