BIRD Islington

BIRD chicken restaurant chain London

Squaremeal Review of BIRD Islington ?

New-wave fried chicken ventures have flocked to London – but we reckon there’s still room on the perch for Bird. Table service, cocktails and free-range fowls are features of this proto-chain. The latest opening is in Camden (following Islington and Shoreditch), where you’ll find industrial-style interiors and booth or bench seating. Start with Dirtybird cocktails (Prosecco, vodka, honey, ginger and fruit juice) before scoffing some sticky soy garlic-fried chicken wings. Then tuck into mains: chicken on waffles, chicken in a bun, or chicken in a bun made of waffles. Burgers are the best bet: juicy, moist, not massive, and well spiced. We opted for the ‘classic’, but there are numerous other iterations (such as the Gee Gee, with kimchi slaw). As for sides, the house ‘kewpie’ mayo is slightly cloying; and stick to plain fries over the cheesy Korean variety. Service is warm, quick and un-judging – ideal when indulging yourself here.

    One must visit a Bird restaurant to indulge in an amazing doughnut ice cream sandwich at least once in their lifetime - but only after experiencing the main attraction - a Bird waffle burger. At just under fifteen pounds it doesn&t come very cheap, but it&s so filling you could probably share one.
    Try a root beer too - it&s my fave fizzy drink. Don&t worry root beer newbies - it tastes nothing like actual beer.
    Don&t bother with the so-called cheesy chips. Unless you&re a fan of fake bottle cheese, that tastes more like mayo than cheese.
