Du poulet frit et du hip-hop : le duo gagnant.

For who? Afficionados of fried chicken and American rap
What's on the menu? Chicken, naturally.

A stone's throw from the Sacré-Cœur lies Cot Cot. This new restaurant serves up a magical combination rather unknown to Paris: fried chicken, and hip hop. 

The restaurant was packed to the rafters, and as the house special sandwich wasn't available that day, we tried the long bun special (fluffy bun, chicken, aubergine purée, yoghurt with mint and cucumber). After four morsels of marianted chicken, crunchy and tasty without being greasy, were served - conversation was cut in half. Part of the €12 meal formula, our meal come with fried sweet potato chips and a can of Dr. Pepper (to really keep it old school).

With its simple wooden tables lining the walls, and an assortment of Supreme sticker, the deco is a definite nod to Brooklyn cool. It's like a hipster KFC, but at least three times better.
