Chik’N, Baker Street

Carle Clarke and David Wolanski, owners of Chick ‘n’ Sours in Dalston and Seven Dials, certainly have a hit on their hands with their latest opening Chik’N. You can best sum it up with the words free-range, fast-food and bloody-delicious. Essentially it’s more of what they do best: fried chicken. It sits on Baker Street, ironically right next to a KFC, and on our Sunday … Continue reading Chik’N, Baker Street

Chick ‘n’ Sours, Seven Dials

I fell in love with Chick ‘n’ Sours after visiting their original shop on the Kingsland Road; their fried chicken was among some of the best I’ve tasted and the owners, Carl and David, are bloody nice blokes. Opening a second restaurant, this time in central London, just by Seven Dials, seemed a logical move for the boys. They’ve perfected their craft and now they’re … Continue reading Chick ‘n’ Sours, Seven Dials

Chick ‘n’ Sours, Dalston

Chick ‘n’ Sours has been sitting pretty on that stretch of the Kingsland Road, near Pamela and Rotorino, for some time now. Co owner, Carl Clarke, used to be a DJ and has run a whole host of successful pop ups, mainly specialising in decent junk food, so knows what he’s doing with a deep fat fryer. Inside it’s a small and simple space; tightly … Continue reading Chick ‘n’ Sours, Dalston

Billy and The Chicks, Soho

I love a bit of fried chicken me, and I really can’t get enough of it. Build it and i’ll come. So when Billy and the Chicks, a new fried chicken shop, opened on St Annes Court in Soho (opposite Zelman Meats) I was rather pleased. It’s a simple space comprising of a bar area by the entrance and a small dining room next door. … Continue reading Billy and The Chicks, Soho

Chick ‘n’ Sours, Dalston

Just like burgers, I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of chicken, which is rather handy as a new fried chicken shop has just opened on the Kingsland Road near Rotorino. It’s by a chap called Carl Clarke who has had a string of successful residencies and pop-ups all over the shop. It’s a sweet little spot and one which looks like it’s had a … Continue reading Chick ‘n’ Sours, Dalston

BIRD, Shoreditch

I had a feeling I was going to like BIRD, a restaurant specialising in ‘free range and fried’ chicken on the Kingsland Road in Shoreditch, as soon I heard they do a fried chicken waffle burger. It’s a vibrant and colourful space and one which feels like it’s totally ready to be rolled out; a more stylish Nando’s you could say just without the faff … Continue reading BIRD, Shoreditch

Hixter Bankside

  I loved my visit to the original Hixter in the City (a variation of Mark Hix’s other restaurant Tramshed which serves only chicken or steak), so I was really excited to hear they were opening a second one in Bankside. And even better, there’s a Mark’s Bar in the basement. The restaurant’s as pretty from the outside, with its bright red neon sign above … Continue reading Hixter Bankside

Chicken Liquor, Brixton

I loved our visit to Wishbone in Brixton; I’ve had the taste of the Tower Block burger and deep fried mac n cheese etched into my tastebuds ever since. When I heard it had been bought by the guys behind Meat Liquor/Market/Mission and was having a name change to Chicken Liquor (great name), I thought I’d pop down to check it out. It’s based in … Continue reading Chicken Liquor, Brixton

Chicken Shop, Tooting

Our visit to the original Chicken Shop in Kentish Town (a venture by the Soho Group which serves only rotisserie chicken) was a hugely successful one – we loved it. Feeling a little bored one Sunday afternoon we decided to make the schlep to Tooting to visit their second restaurant (they plan to open a whole load more apparently). It was a really tiny restaurant … Continue reading Chicken Shop, Tooting

Cookhouse Joe

Cookhouse Joe is a Lebanese inspired rotisserie chicken joint on Berwick Street in Soho. It’s by the same people who own Soho Joe (somewhere I’ve yet to try) and as I LOVE a bit of chicken I was excited to pop in for dinner. We sat on the ground floor which was a very small and dark space; the first floor was a little more … Continue reading Cookhouse Joe

Chicken Shop

If you like chicken, then you had better take a trip to Chicken Shop – Soho House Group’s latest offering in Kentish Town. It’s in the same building as Dirty Burger and Pizza East (also owned by SHG) but we found the entrance to Chicken Shop quite hard to find. An open door leading to a staircase with no signage meant we walked past it … Continue reading Chicken Shop

Hix at The Tramshed

The concept of Hix at The Tramshed in Shoreditch is very simple – it sells steak or chicken. If you’re a vegetarian I think you get a slap round the face and are asked to leave. If you were hoping for a bit more detail – the “mighty marbled” Glenarm sirloin steaks served with chips are sold in quantities of 250g starting at Β£20, going … Continue reading Hix at The Tramshed
