The self-styled 'King of Chicken', comprising two restaurants on either side of the street, is a favourite for a cheap downtown feed. Chicken grilled over charcoal comes with chips, salad and the ubiquitous (and thankfully optional) hot piri-piri sauce. There are other dishes on the menu but the place aims for quick turnover, so service can be on the brusque side. Note that prices for eating on the terrace are 20% higher. Of the two buildings, heading upstairs in the southern one is the 'local' option. There are takeaways available too.
