A trendy new chicken restaurant arrives on the shores of the Canal Saint-Martin.

Craving chicken? Grandma’s roast is out, Gallina’s “poulet-purée” is in. From the brains behind Sunken Chip and Cream, comes a new restaurant on the trendy Canal Saint-Martin

With chicken from the Bearn and Dordogne poultry farms, the menu promises high quality meat – and it delivers. Their succulent, flavoursome chicken is best enjoyed as part of the lunchtime ‘formule’ - either a quarter-chicken or a beautiful chicken sandwich with homemade bread, mayonnaise and piccalilli. The sides are just as good: crispy, golden roast potatoes and macaroni cheese with Mornay sauce, sprinkled with breadcrumbs. Their corn on the cob is another favourite, cooked in butter and smothered in barbecue sauce. It burns…but in a good way. Those not so into chicken can opt for suckling pig (although it has to be ordered a week in advance) or a salad. 

And an added bonus - in the evenings, it becomes a cocktail bar where you can happily sip on an after-dinner negroni – perfect.

A trendy new bar and restaurant facing the Canal Saint-Martin, full of skinny jean-clad hipsters! I came here early on a weeknight with a friend and grabbed the only non-reserved table. We ordered the 1/4 roast chicken (not bad) with one side dish (the most delicious heirloom tomato and goat cheese salad) and their chicken burger (A+)! Didn't try their cocktails but they look pretty good too. The place is pretty small and fills up quickly, so they asked us to move around the room a few times to try and squeeze in a larger table. Thankfully, they offered us a glass of wine for the trouble, so we forgave them! Pretty decor (with Instagram worthy tile floors) and a Dj sets on weekends add to the popularity of Gallina! I'll definitely drop by for lunch sometime. A must for all chicken lovers!
