“Unbelievably good ribs and pulled pork” continue to win top marks for street-food legend Mark Gevaux – even though he “concentrates more on his outrageously hot Holy F**k chilli sauce these days”. “The meat is melt-in-the-mouth, superbly cooked and exceptional value” – it’s “a pain that you have to wake up early-ish on a Sunday” to scoff a portion on Brick Lane, but the only other option is outside the Boleyn Tavern before West Ham home games.

“Unbelievably tasty ribs, worth crossing London for” and perfect pulled pork, again score high ratings for street-food star Mark Gevaux, who is to be found on Sundays on Brick Lane (and outside West Ham for home games). Delight your friends with a gift of his trademark ‘Holy F**k’ hot sauce.

“The best rib rolls in London”, made by the legendary Mark Gevaux, are “just extraordinarily good street food” – and, for aficionados, “the only reason to go to Brick Lane on a Sunday”. You’ll have to get there early, because his “perfect” pulled pork always sells out. The rest of the week, fans make do with one of his trademark condiments, led by Holy F**k hot sauce. “You cannot fault this guy: he loves what he produces and it shows”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
