The restaurant immediately scored extra points for offering Ting (a Jamaican grapefruit soda), and Ginger Beer as an alternative to the usual beverages. I ordered the Korean Double Fried Wings (as recommended by the waiter) Fries, and two servings of the Deep Fried Mac ‘N’ Cheese. My friend opted for the Chicken Shop Wings and the Slaw (Coleslaw).
So what did I think?
The Korean Double Fried Wings were absolutely delicious! The sweet, but tangy sauce had a slight ‘orange-y’ taste, which was then contrasted with the spring onions and the chilli. Although they tasted amazing on their own, I found that the House BBQ Sauce which was served with the Chicken Shop Wings complimented them perfectly. The Chicken Shop Wings were crunchy and moderately seasoned and although I would have preferred them to be a little bit spicier, the added sauce definitely compensated for the lack of heat. I would personally recommend ordering both and sharing.
The Deep Fried Mac ‘N’ Cheese appears underwhelming at first, however once I bit into them, I was pleasantly surprised! The centre was filled with warm, gooey, soft macaroni and cheese centre, whilst the outside was perfectly crisp and crunchy, it was comparable to a savoury Baked Alaska. These are an absolute must if you visit!
Would I go back?
Yes! This didn’t quite make the TSF Favourites list as it’s not somewhere that I would constantly revisit, however it is somewhere that I strongly recommend!
Who’s it for?
This restaurant is most suited towards fried chicken lovers (obviously) and those who enjoy quirky dining concepts.
