SquareMeal Review of
Chicken Shop Brixton
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.
