CHIK’N

OPENED 16 DAYS AGO

CHIK’N is a new fried chicken restaurant from Carl Clarke and David Wolanski, the team behind Chick ‘n’ Sours.

The aim of the restaurant is to remove the guilt associated with regular fried chicken by using high welfare, great quality birds and generally top ingredients. The restaurant is also as green as possible, recycling (almost) all waste and the whole venture is just one big brilliant attempt to make the best fried chicken restaurant in London.

The Spot:

CHIK’N is open all day, including at breakfast time, so you can get your chicken fix in the early morn, should you feel the need. The interior has been built using sustainable materials, so it’s a feel-good vibe all round, and there will be one of Carl’s signature banging soundtracks in the background, because what is a fried chicken dinner without some decent grooves?

CHIK'N

The Food:

Chef Carl works on the menu for both Chick ‘n’ Sours and CHIK’N with Professional Masterchef winner Ash Mair, and they’ve come up with a killer range of sandwiches and other fried delights. If you’re partial to a certain arrangement of sausage, egg and muffin of a morning, then you’ll be delighted by the news that they’ve come up with a free range egg version on a sourdough muffin. They’re also doing hot cakes (like pancake shaped waffles), HASH BROWNS and cheesy beans. The stuff of hangover dreams.

CHIK'N Muffin

On the all-day menu, the main event is the fried chicken sandwich, with buttermilk brined fried chicken, craggy and crispy of batter, nestled up against some fantastic sauces and toppings, like spicy Sriracha sour cream with kimchi flavoured slaw and BBQ sauce, BBQ mayo, cheese and pink pickled onions. If you know and love Chick ‘n’ Sours, which you should, you’ll know that these guys like big, punchy flavours. On the side, you can have the famous Disco Wings, a cooling wedge salad or a plate of nacho fries.

CHIK'N

The Drinks:

At breakfast time there’s a range of breakfast shakes and of course, all your favourite soft drinks.

The Damage:

The aim here is to keep prices accessible, so a breakfast muffin is just £3.95 and it’s £4.95 for the straight up CHIK’N Sandwich. There really is no reason to visit Chicken Cottage ever again.

CHIK'N Wings

In a Nutshell:

This is the fried chicken restaurant we’ve all been waiting for – great quality chicken served in familiar styles but with an extra whack of Chick ‘n’ Sours style flavour and flair. Carl is an all-round decent bloke, too, putting loads of effort into making the restaurant a great place to work, paying staff a proper wage, recycling all the oil used in frying and generally taking every bit of guilt away from the fried chicken experience. We’re shouting about this one from the rooftops.
