Barbecoa opened in early November 2010. Just a stone's throw from St Paul's Cathedral, it has been described in reviews as a place where customers can revert back to their primitive eating instincts by eating meat cooked on an open fire and in a group setting.
Yes, the seating areas are reminiscent of the days when our primitive ancestors would gather around the fire pit to eat the catch of the day. And, yes, the meat is cooked over a wood-fired oven, a Robata grill, a burn pit, not to mention a Texas smoker and Indian tandoors.
Nevertheless, there the resemblance ends.
