SquareMeal Review of
The Famous Flames
The third restaurant from Bea Vo (Stax and Boondocks) brings her US-junk-food formula to Camden, this time with a focus on flame grilling. Fans of big ol’ buckets of deep-fried chicken wings should make a beeline for a selection which includes a Filipino sauce option, as well as the more expected likes of Buffalo and BBQ. The rest of the menu features burgers served in sweet, buttery buns and cones of whipped ice cream with sticky-sweet glazes for dessert. Slap bang opposite Camden Town station and with just 15 seats, The Famous Flames is mainly gunning for the takeaway trade and so bridges the gap between Vo’s restaurants and her Bea’s of Bloomsbury ventures, which include café-style sites in Bloomsbury, Marylebone and St Paul’s One New Change.
