What can you tell us about Cue Point?
Co-founded by Mursal Saiq, working together with co-founder and Head Chef Josh Moroney (who had experience at Smokestak and Shotgun), Cue Point mixes Mursal's Afghan heritage with more worldwide BBQ techniques. Moroney has mixed in influences from Argentina, Texas, Afghanistan, Guyana, and Brazil and this all results in some pretty excellent smoked meats. The food is both gluten and dairy-free and while there's no pork, as Saiq is Mulsim, lamb and beef make some very impressive appearances.
Cue Point has appeared at pop-ups and residencies, but we tried out one of their home delivery packages.
Where do they deliver to?
Nationwide, so you can enjoy these smoked delights all over the UK. Everything's both vac-packed and sent in a chilled box.
So what's on offer?
A pretty wide selection - taking in smoked brisket, lamb, ribs and vegan options too. The smoked meats all arrive in vac packs that just need warming up - about 15-20 minutes, with the sealed packs simmered in water. As well as the below, lamb ribs and brisket bun kits are also available.
Here's what we had:
And there are vegan options?
Yes indeed. The vegan nacos substitute the meat for smoked tomato-based Afghan inspired ratatouille and another attraction is the borani kadoo - a traditional Afghan dish with their own twist. That's made of chunks of pumpkin smoked then slowly braised in a combination of onions, garlic, coriander, ginger, turmeric, chilli peppers and served with garlic spiked vegan yoghurt - and is paired with nacos.
This is an easy recommendation. Cue Point i's something that is a little bit different from a traditional BBQ offering. Order a whole lot to chuck on the weekend BBQ and pretend you did all the work yourself. Although it's so good, no one will believe you...
