Fried chicken is bae and since moving from South London to East I've been hoping to find a good place that will deliver some fried chicken goodness. I'm afraid to say that Bird is not it. Ordered some take out and was really excited to try the chicken tenders. The chips were alright, as good as chips can be, but the chicken was dry and painfully un-crisp. My housemate had the waffle burger and it was also disappointing. The waffle tasted like it had been dunked in soy sauce and was oddly chewy. Kudos on the free-range chicken but the search continues.
Well I honestly can't recommend this place. I went last week and ordered a bacon and cheese (chicken) burger, some cheesy Korean fries and a beer my friend also had a burger fries and beer and the total bill come to just over £40 so it's not the cheapest diner I've ever been to. The decor is quite cool and it seemed fairly busy, which is why we went in, but don't be fooled by this - the food certainly doesn't justify it. The burger was not horrible, but its fairly bland taste was covered by by too much salt. There are much better chicken burgers to be had in London than this. The chips on the other hand, were really awful - they were cold for one and covered in so much sauce they were practically swimming it in. And as for the beer, watch out when you order it on tap - it doesn't come in full pint glasses, but rather two thirds of a pint. All in all, a bland burger, soggy, cold chips and a stingy serving of beer for over 40 quid doesn't exactly make a satisfying experience - I won't be going back!
I doff my hat to anyone who can eat The Original Waffle Burger in one sitting. I nearly passed out eating half of it: it's just so deliciously rich, chewy and hot. I was hangover and had to sleep instantly afterwards. I'm yet to try any of the other bad boys on the menu but I'm confident it will cut the mustard.
