Square Meal Review of Chicken Shop Tooting ?

Following the success of their original Chicken Shop in Kentish Town, the guys from the Soho House Group have launched another one-trick pony celebrating the delights of roast chicken. Expect a similar vintage ‘general store’ look with red chequered floors, diner-style tables, red stools and a long wooden counter, plus a menu chalked up on the wall. The basic offer revolves around free-range Norfolk chickens – marinated, steamed, then crisped-up on the rotisserie. As before, back-up comes from generously portioned sides served in blue-rimmed enamel dishes (crinkle-cut chips, coleslaw, corn-on-the-cob), with chilli kicks provided by the house ‘hot' sauce. Finally, ‘say when’ and choose the ‘size of your slice’ when it comes to sweets such as deep-filled apple pie or lemon cheesecake. Takeaways and picnics, too.

Feeling a little bored one Sunday afternoon we decided to make the schlep to Tooting to visit their second restaurant (they plan to open a whole load more apparently). It was a really tiny restaurant which looked ever so quaint and pretty from the outside. We could have sat on stool seats at the counter in the entrance area which overlooked the plump chicks rotating above an open charcoal pit (the smell was great). Instead we chose to sit in the small dining room out the back which was a 20 minute or so wait for a table. It was a little bit cramped but charmingly manageable...

  2. Hands up if you like chicken. Who can say that they don’t? It’s inoffensive- provided you are not a vegetarian but if you are, then I question why you are reading a post titled “Chicken Shop”…Yes it can be a bit ho-hum and there is a reason why they say “everything taste like chicken” but to those people, I challenge that you haven’t had chicken done right – and that a visit to Chicken Shop will make you reconsider...
