The man sitting on the table next to us is attempting to eat a a giant sausage, equivalent to 10 sausages, for Smash's new competition! Unfortunately he doesn't beat the last best time, which I overhear is just under 30 minutes, but he manages to eat it all and that's applaudable! Aside from the giant sausage, there's also a great heap of mash and gravy. Even though my partner is slightly curious to compete, I assure him it's a much better idea to be able to enjoy and taste the sausages rather than stuff your face as quickly as possible and probably not move for the next two days. But it's all just some good competitive fun, are you game?

My partner chose the beef & Guinness, chicken, goats cheese & caramelised onion sausages, creamy potato with bacon & leek and traditional gravy. The beef & Guinness is quite macho with its flavours, bold and strong. He loves it! The chicken, goats cheese & caramelised onion is surprisingly very nice! I don't really like goats cheese, but the amount in the sausage is very subtle and just adds creaminess to it. The caramelised onion makes it sweet, so the three ingredients work perfectly. The creamy potato with bacon & leek is more gutsy than mine, hint of sweetness from the leeks and saltiness from the bacon gives it more flavour. The traditional gravy is good, bringing all the components home!

When we had finished our meal, I told my partner it felt like I just got a giant hug. Everything is just so lovely and comforting. The waitpeople are helpful. The manager/owner always greets his customers with a smile and a quick chat before they leave. I'm very happy when I return to Smash Sausage Kitchen, because I know the food is guaranteed delicious and the vibe is casual and relax. I can't wait for another cold day to come, so we can go back for some more bangers and mash!
