Bird, Shoreditch

Ever wondered how Chicken & Waffles came about? I reckon some clever fella (American, obvs! probably the same one who devised Pancakes & Bacon) thought.. ‘might as well eat my Breakfast & Lunch for, you know…Brunch’ and now we have him to thank for this savoury-cum-sweet kicker of a dish.

Bird is a retro diner which specialises in nothing but the bird. Not the greasy, cardboard,  type, we’re talking free range, high quality, as good as chicken can be types (cough Posh Chicken cough). It has been on my radar for places to visit for a while now, so when I found myself hungry in Shoreditch, heading over was a no-brainer.

Their decor is borderline minimal with bare brick walls, industrial style lamps but they play absolutely no games when it comes to their dishes. Indulgent, finger licking and often messy to eat grub.

the focus is real

I went straight for their signature dish, Two pieces of crispy and tender free range chicken on  a cheddar & onion waffle served with Canadian maple syrup… and it was bloody good!

Go for the full works with a side of their chicken wings platter doused in a honey ginger glaze and get stuck in!
