SquareMeal Review of
This south London chicken shop is the brainchild of Scott Collins and Yianni Papoutsis, the founders of popular burger joint, Meatliquor. An emporium with the aim to feed London's current appetite for all things 'galline' (ie. 'chickeny'), it goes about its business amid the hubbub of Brixton Market, with ‘vertical drinking’ and finger food at ground level and a dining room upstairs. ‘Fried chicken and beer’ is the bottom line, with ‘dirty wings’ and chunks of deep-fried, free-range meat as the solid mainstays, backed by craft brews such as Hobo Beer (a new Czech lager made from Saaz hops), a few ciders and some lively cocktails. Lunch deals include any burger or wings plus fries and a soft drink for a steal at £7.50, while takeaways are just the ticket on a hangover.
