The Joint, Marylebone.

*Please note, The Joint is now closed, and has been replaced by the brilliant, Picture Restaurant*

The great thing about working in Marylebone is the food. There's a plethora of incredible restaurants, and I'm slowly working my way round them all. A few weeks ago the work gang and I all went for a Friday lunch. Usually we go to the same place; either Roti Chai, Meatliquor, or Tommi's Burger Joint. This time we felt like a change, so opted for The Joint, which is pretty much every meat-eaters idea of heaven.

The restaurant is surprisingly large, with cool decor and a buzzing atmosphere. On Friday it was packed with workers all treating themselves to ribs, brisket, and pork buns. Clare and I had a lemonade to drink, while the others all had wine and beer. The lemonade was freshly squeezed, and absolutely amazing! 

Food-wise we way over-ordered. Really you could probably share fries between 4 of you, they're huge!! The cheese fries were completely addictive though, so if you don't like sharing maybe don't ;) sadly I didn't get a photo of the fries, and apologies for the quality of these pics, I just used my phone as I wasn't expecting to go for lunch!  

I had the Candied Apple Bacon, Slaw & Salad 16-hour slow cooked pork on their potato bun, with added cheese. I wasn't sure what to expect from the potato bun, but I was actually really impressed, it tasted pretty good! The pork was insanely good, I'm not quite sure how I finished it as it was absolutely huge, but it was too good to waste. 

If you're after a funky new alternative to the standard burger places in the area, definitely try The Joint! They also do a vegetarian and a chicken option.

  1. Luxy you're so lucky to have so many lunch options close to your work, more so that you have a full lunch hour to yourself! Even though I'm the boss I find it hard to nip out for food, so it's always packed lunch for me. If only every new restaurant in London delivers to Shoreditch! x

  2. I really love food from The Joint! The onion rings, the hot wings and the chilli riblets are yummers, too! You're right about portion sizes, though. They're totes insane!

  4. A potato bun sounds intriguing?! Absolutely love pulled pork though and a 16-hour cook sounds like it would be pretty epic! Lots of love, Andrea xxx

  5. Love the idea of the really slow cooked pork - it sounds delicious! Though was the potato bun really heavy?

  6. I hadn't heard of the Joint but it does look like a great place to get a casual meal in Marylebone so will definitely bear it in mind when in the area
