The daffodils are blooming, the lawnmowers are starting up and there's a buzzing in the air signalling winter is over and spring is (almost definitely) here! It may not be quite time to fire up your own barbecue but that doesn't mean you have to wait for the great taste of barbecued dishes.
1. Korean BBQ
Korean BBQ has taken UK restaurants by storm over the last few years, and Jinseon in Coventry has a range of BBQ dishes to choose from. All of them come with kimchi, pickled onion and cucumber and a salad, but which will you choose? The Spicy Pork Belly may be hard to beat, but then again, can you resist the Spicy Bulgogi Ribeye Steak - soaked in a green onion, soy, sugar and garlic marinade before it's barbecued? Whichever one you choose, you won't be disappointed!
2. Half BBQ Chicken
Of course there are plenty of pork-based options at Porky's BBQ, with a number of different ribs dishes and pulled pork on the menu. But our favourite has to be the Half BBQ Chicken that's marinated in the house Memphis BBQ sauce. Just half a chicken with a choice of side dish - yes, that should be enough for dinner!
3. Herb-marinated Chicken Burger
Fancy a little spring chicken on the barbecue? Millsy's burgers are all delectable, but one of the most popular choices is the Herb-marinated Chicken Burger, topped up with the classic burger dressing and nestled into a toasted brioche bun. There's a choice of fries to go on the side - our recommendation is to order the Cajun Fries and maybe one of Millsy's milkshakes to wash it all down.
4. The Hungry Bucket Party Bucket
Whether you've got your mates around for the footie, or the kids are having a sleepover with their friends, the Hungry Bucket from the Party Bucket menu at Crunch Munch will fit the bill. It's loaded with a dozen pieces of southern fried chicken, chicken strips and wings and four portions of fries. There's also a bottle of Pepsi thrown in. No need for cutlery; just dig in and enjoy!
5. Brisket & Burnt Ends
There's no denying that the best bit of barbecue is sometimes those burnt ends that you really need to crunch on. At Bluegrass BBQ, they've won awards for their "low and slow" barbecuing skills and the sliced Brisket & Burnt Ends showcases these talents superbly. It comes with sides of slaw, frickles, mini-corn and skin-on fries. Horseradish mayo adds a little kick of heat into the deal!
Whatever you're feeling like eating straight from the barbecue, Deliveroo can bring it to you. All you have to do is make your choice, and then sit back and wait for dinner to arrive!
