Restaurant Review: Perry & Blackwelder, Dubai
Ideal for… a Southern American casual grub craving.
Restaurant name and location: P&B at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai (old space of Barzar)
Cuisine: Smokehouse – Southern American
Atmosphere: Casual and cool
What they say: Perry & Blackwelder’s (P&B) is a brand new casual dining concept located in Souk Madinat Jumeirah, taking inspiration from every bit of Deep South BBQ heritage to bring Dubai its first ever, original smokehouse.
The restaurant’s philosophy is deeply entrenched in American history, when the first pitmasters in the Deep South developed the art of roasting meat ‘low and slow’ over a smouldering heat to achieve fall-off-the-bone tenderness and a beautiful smoky flavour. It is what inspires our Executive Chef and Pitmaster Lawrence Wells, using recipes passed down through generations, to create the menu at P&B’s Original Smokehouse.
With family and friends try our wide variety of true BBQ dishes such as slow-smoked Mesquite brisket; Applewood-smoked turkey breast with cornbread and candied yams or our signature P&B’s pulled brisket and Texas sausage sandwich.
Henry Perry and John Blackwelder, the fathers of authentic BBQ, knew what good ol’ fashioned hospitality was all about, and we do too. As with any of our restaurants, service is of paramount importance, and we promise the P&B’s experience will keep you coming back for more.
What to order:
-Chicken wings tossed 5 ways – you can get it in 10s, 20s or 30s. (We ordered ours with Honey Mustard, delicious! BBQ is a popular one too)
-Slow smoked mesquite brisket with potato salad and green beans (Don’t forget to use the sauces on the table as it is quite dry, but delicious with the sauces)
-Smoked Turkey with candied yams, collards greens and mac & cheese (This was my ultimate favourite dish, they just all worked perfectly from the Turkey to the candied yams, felt like a dish from Thanksgiving)
Service: Great service, we got a lot of help with our orders!
What I loved:
-There are a ton of different restaurants that serve Chicken Wings, they make some really good ones.
-The interiors, very cool and hip yet feels like something in the states.
-If you’re looking for an original smokehouse, this is it.
What I didn’t love as much:
-They have the classic American desserts like Mississippi mud pie and pecan pie, but felt like they were nothing more than average, something I hope they work on.
Bill for two: AED350
