Here's the Porc-y Menu For Kangaroo Boxing Club, Opening Today

3410 11th Street NW
Phone: 202-505-4522; Facebook page
Status: Opens at 4 p.m. with food service beginning at 5 p.m.

Coming to you from the folks behind Porc Mobile, Kangaroo Boxing Club opens its doors to the public this evening in Columbia Heights after its relatively short buildout and soft opening period. Thrillist notes that Kangaroo Boxing Club is "appropriately cool/bizarre" for what you'd expect of a place with that name. So think church pews, board games and Photoshopped photos of old DC.

When it comes to the menu, they've got some of the Porc Mobile's heavy-hitters on the menu — the pulled pork sandwich, also available topped with ham and bacon, a little thing known as 3 Little Pigs. There's also a Big Bad Wolf burger topped with pulled pork, ham and bacon — make it a Chicken Little and you get an egg on top. They've also got crab cakes, vegetarian options, johnny cakes and tots on the side and more. Here's the full menu.
