SquareMeal Review of
“One of the best cheap eats in London” (according to one regular), this outlet from the guys behind pizza joint Soho Joe is all about rotisserie chickens served with some international flourishes and a noticeable Middle Eastern bias. Free-range chooks from the West Country are given the treatment on a mobile rotisserie trolley and served with a choice of punchy sauces. The laminated menu also promises “phenomenal” Lebanese flatbread wraps, burgers, salads and mezze-style standards ranging from grilled halloumi and falafel to moutabal and tabbouleh, while desserts offer sticky baklava as well as transatlantic staples such as chocolate fudge cake or homemade apple pie – in short, “good honest food”. The Cookhouse lives up to its name, with cramped interiors, budget furnishings, tins of cutlery and big trays of food on display.
