Get set for Fried Chicken Fight Club

Eight of London’s greatest chicken fryers are squaring up in another epic Time Out and Deliveroo food battle

By Time Out in association with Deliveroo

America’s Deep South might be the spiritual home of fried chicken, but there’s no doubt about it: the chicken shop is a city icon. And London – being London – couldn’t wait to posh it up. We might still love a cheeky box of fried chicken from up the road, but these days it can be high-end as well as high street. London does fried chicken every which way, from healthy to no-holds-barred. Even vegan. This humble dish has been raised to gastronomic heights by the city’s master fryers. And now it’s time for the great British beak-off.

Time Out and Deliveroo have rounded up eight fried-chicken experts (all exclusively available through Deliveroo) to do battle. Fried Chicken Fight Club will establish, once and for all, the pecking order of the chicken dons of London. It’s the perfect way to spend a winter’s day. Over two hours, you get to try chicken from all the contenders, then vote for your favourite. There will be beers from the ace Fourpure to keep everyone refreshed, tunes to keep it all jumping and some of the best chicken in town. It’s going to be wing-a-ding-ding.

MC has gone from dishing up from an old US Army ambulance to proper swanky premises, but one thing has stayed the same: tea-brined, buttermilk-soaked, twice-battered chicken deliciousness. Yee-ha!

Like their aristocratic namesake, Byron are bold, swaggering and unconcerned by convention. So much so that they’re bringing their delicious nuggets to the Fried Chicken Fight Club. Strong move, Byron!

Blasting straight outta Venezuela, Petare has some serious chops, including winning Kerb’s ‘Best Fried Chicken’ two years running. We’re positively Caracas about them! 

Korean Tendors from BEAK - Islington - for Deliveroo Fried Chicken Fight Club advertorial


BEAK’s secret recipe is designed to make chicken great on delivery. So when it’s just been handed to you from the source, it should be sensational. Tender thigh meat is seasoned with the mysterious BEAKsalt for a big smack of flavour.

Other Side Fried

‘Dirty done proper’ is OSF’s watchword (do it in a Ray Winstone accent – it works better). Its four branches across the city dish up ‘sexy fried chicken’ in towering buns packed with extras. Proper. Dirty. 

Cabana - for Deliveroo Fried Chicken advertorial


Rio street-food crew Cabana are bringing their frankly quite awesome churrasco fried chicken along, for a bit of carnival flavour. It’s hard to fight someone in a feathery headdress, but they’ll give it a good go.

It’s wings greatest hits courtesy of Lazybones. Their sticky beauties come with an Asian-influenced sauce of ginger, honey, coriander, hot chilli and lime, to put a bit of heat in the meat.

Thunderbird Fried Chicken

‘We fry chickens’ boast TFC, in case you wondered what they were doing here. They fry them well, to be fair. A star of Dinerama and Giant Robot, the Double Thunderbird is a sight worth seeing.
