Thunderbird Fried Chicken

OPENED 89 DAYS AGO

Thunderbird Fried Chicken arrives on Brixton’s Market Row.

After making a name for himself as “Wing King” at London’s Dinerama and Giant Robot, Matt Harris finally finds a permanent home for his legendary fried chicken. 

The Spot:

Tapping into Matt’s former racing days, the new spot boasts electric blue interiors, gold thunderbolts and a cool yet casual vibe. And if you are not one of the lucky 42 diners to be seated, Thunderbird Fried Chicken still offers a take-away service too.

The Food:

Following on from popular demand, Thunderbird Fried Chicken continues to deliver the firm favourites, but many with a new and improved take. The classic Thunderbun firmly maintains its rightful place on the menu, but with the added lure of Matt Harris’s revamped secret recipe sauce, dubbed appropriately as Awesome. The award-winning Chipuffalo Wings are also here to stay (slathered in a sweet yet savoury sauce made with buffalo, chipotle, coriander and pickled celery), complementing newcomers such as salted caramel wings and veggie buns made with halloumi instead of chicken.

The Drinks:

Besides your usual soft drink suspects and Brixton beers, you’ve got the added bonus of American shakes.

The Damage:

Depending on quantity, wings and pieces range from £5 to £18; buns are priced at around £7-£8.50.

In a Nutshell:

Finally there is a permanent residency for this legendary fried chicken hotspot. South London, you are the lucky recipient of fried golden chicken, seven days a week. Embrace it.
