Chick ‘n’ Sours opened a fourth site in November 2019, near Liverpool Street. The 50-cover spot features vegan offerings and take-away. Lovers of the legendary (and Sunday only) ‘Whole Fry’ will be delighted to know it is available every day here.
Harden's survey result
“Massive flavours, great vibe” and the “best chicken wings tasted in a long time” (#nextlevel) add up to “heaven in a chintzy, porcelain bowl”, say fans of this “great value” concept based in Haggerston, now with branches in Covent Garden and Islington. “It’s not just about the chicken – yes, it’s mega-crispy and yes, it’s super-juicy, but what sets Chick ‘n’ Sours apart are the garnishes, sides and sauces” – many of them Asian-inspired, such as “the yummy, smashed, spicy, peanuty, cucumber side”.
“Sublimely juicy chicken with absurdly crunchy coating” – “like KFC pimped to the max” with “must-have dips such as Kewpie mayo and Sriracha sour cream” – have won high ratings for this free-range chicken and sour cocktails duo in Haggerston and Covent Garden (and from September 2018 in Islington too). “It’s so good I can’t stop going back!”.
“Everything you could wish for in a crunchy-fried, tender, perfectly cooked chicken” gets a big thumbs up for this “really fun” Dalston joint (now with a Covent Garden branch); “accoutrements to die for” too (“surprisingly, the outstanding dish didn’t involve chicken – the amazing Sichuan aubergine stole the show”).
