The peinirli is baked in front of you on a hot stone and served in the minimalist interior space and on the few tables on the sidewalk or in the hand.

Po’ Boys

RESTAURANTS

The meat-eating habits of the American South are transported to a bright street food spot with details taken from American diners, Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix concert posters, a piano and drums. Here they slowly roast and smoke the meat (pork belly, brisket, turkey, Andouille handmade sausage) and serve it in sandwiches or burgers with potato salad or french fries. In order to enjoy the taste of the authentic Southern BBQ, we recommend that you order the meat plates.
