Happy birthday for chicken fans.
For that beloved friend who prefers a bargain bucket to a Victoria sponge, consider a visit to east London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, who are now offering a very special chicken wing ‘birthday cake.’
The festively-attired morsel mountain comes accompanied with a round of shots, each with a spicy twist: the ‘Flaming Coconut’ consists of Koko Kanu, Wray & Nephew Rum and a touch of Buffalo sauce, for example.
A worthy alternative to a desperate, last-minute Colin the Caterpillar purchase, this winningly-wingy birthday platter costs £18, but is free for a pre-booked group of 10 or more friends. Free wings!
Find Hoxton Bar and Kitchen at 2-4 Hoxton Square, N1 6NU. Nearest station: Old Street.
Open midday-midnight (at least) Mon-Fri, 4pm-late on the weekends.
