This Friday (29th July) we’ll be celebrating National Chicken Wing Day. Well technically America will be, but we don’t want to be left out. Here are 5 of the best places in London to get your chicken fix…
1. Mother Clucker
Mother Clucker have a cheeky name and chicken that’s cheekier than Nando’s. It’s tea brined, buttermilk soaked, twice battered, and served out of an old ambulance in East London. It’s clucking brilliant.
The Old Truman’s Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, E1 6QL
Choose from 5 house-made glazes (honey ginger, Buffalo with blue cheese, Korean gochujang, sticky soy garlic, Nashville hot) and gorge on fried, free-range and fresh chicken – the way it’s meant to be. At least that’s what they say…
Restaurants in Camden, Shoreditch and Islington
With a quirky and hilarious menu, Clutch offers a truly brilliant dining experience. Chicken, cocktails and R’n’B tunes. What more could you possibly want? Oh and you can get 30% off on Mondays. Winner winner, chicken dinner!
4 Ravenscroft St, Hoxton, E2 7QG
4. The Orange Buffalo
Served out of a truck in an old car park, The Orange Buffalo’s New York style wings will blow your socks off. They are double winners of the UK’s first chicken wing competition, so they sure know how to make darn good chicken.
Ely’s Yard, near Brick Lane, E1 6QL
5. Absurd Bird
Born out of a weird dream that somebody had about chicken, Absurd Bird is a cool and quirky place to go for some wings. The chicken is lovingly reared, brined, cooked and marinated before reaching your plate. And did we mention they also have incredible cocktails and desserts?
