Square Meal Review of Chicken Shop ?

Housed in a cosy candlelit basement, this venue from the Soho House Group (next door to Pizza East) is a one-trick pony celebrating the delights of roast chicken. Inside it's lined with mirrored wooden cabinets, and the vintage look is enhanced by diner-style tables, red chairs and a long wooden counter. Chalked up on the wall, the basic menu offers free-range Norfolk chickens served by the quarter, half or whole. Marinated, steamed, then finished on the rotisserie grill, the meat is deliciously juicy with perfectly crisp skin. Generously portioned sides are delivered in blue-rimmed enamel dishes, and you can get your chilli kicks from the house ‘hot' sauce. Finally, sweet treats such as deep-filled apple pie draw proceedings to a satisfied conclusion. In short, this is highly effective, hip comfort food for the iPad generation. Takeaways, too.

  1. The Chicken Shop menu is simple, unfussy, geared towards an easy dining experience and written on the wall (so don’t look like a twat by asking for one). The place is set in a trio of eateries comprising of Pizza East, Dirty Burger (also owned by Soho House) and itself; all interlinked to make up a small corner on Highgate Road. Hype surrounding this place extends well beyond the UK (according to a friend from Korea) but I can’t exactly understand why (great marketing I guess). Yes, the chicken is better than average, but it is after all just rotisserie chicken presented in a dimly lit and loud atmosphere (trendy, right?)...

    samphire and salsify :: Chicken Shop

    If you like chicken, then you had better take a trip to Chicken Shop – Soho House Group’s latest offering in Kentish Town. It’s in the same building as Dirty Burger and Pizza East (also owned by SHG) but we found the entrance to Chicken Shop quite hard to find. An open door leading to a staircase with no signage meant we walked past it before finally realising what it was...

    Frenchy love food :: CHICKEN SHOP - Chicken time !

    Second visit at 79 Highgate Road in Kentish Town: this time was at Chicken Shop. My first visit was at Dirty Burger.

    I went there for a Sunday Brunch with some friends , we ordered a whole and a half chicken, two corns on the cob (each dish got 3 corns inside), three crinkle cut fries and one coleslaw. It was totally enough for 4 people, we didn't finish all but we were happy to learn that you can ask for a 'Doggy bag' if you want to keep the rest of your chicken...
