Bird claims to serve what will probably some of the best fried chicken you have ever had. And you know what they are probably right. I have looked high and low since living in London for a place that sells great fried chicken and we might have just found it tucked away in Shoreditch.
We wanted to go for something a little different the other night and opted for the chicken & waffle burger - boneless thighs and thick cut bacon, cheddar & onion stuffed waffles, hot sauce and syrup (pictured above). Although it was pretty amazing, it was a bit too much for my liking and in my view took away from the amazing fried chicken. Next time - because obviously there will be a next time - I will probably opt for a couple of pieces of friend chicken, buttermilk ranch sauce and some good sides.
The chicken was absolutely amazing; fresh, cooked to perfection and perfectly fried. The perfect meal you want to tuck into after a long night out the day before. Oh and best of all, they do take away.
I hear their doughnuts are amazing as well - sold fresh every morning from the Doughnut Hatch until they run out.
