Meaty Barbecue Masterpieces
Hot Box co-founders Basit Nasim and Lewis Spencer came together over a mutual love and knowledge of Texan BBQ, having both honed their technique at Austin’s legendary Franklin Barbecue.
Described by Time Out as a “Meaty barbeque masterpiece”, Hot Box started life as a food truck before launching as a standalone restaurant in Spitalfields in 2014. Using a combination of kiln-dried Hickory and Oak in their rotisserie smoker, the team create intense, sweet and smoky flavours. The meat is dry-rubbed and slow-cooked at a low heat to create tender, succulent cuts that melt in your mouth.
It’s all about the meat at Hot Box.
Open Mon-Sun, 12pm-10pm
