We've only just heard about the revamped CHIK'N on Baker Street, but here comes news about lots of changes at the original Chick N Sours in Haggerston. They're getting a new look upstairs, but most importantly a new bar downstairs.
And a new look means new things for the menu, created with MasterChef The Professionals winner Ash Mair:
- Kimchi pancakes with fried chicken & Chengdu buffalo sauce
- Chongqing crispy rice sticks
- Viet Cajun fried chicken
- Fried chicken queso - in the style of a fondue.
Plus all the regulars, including that whole fried chicken (pictured above) on Sundays.
They've been planning something downstairs at Chick n Sours for a while but now it's actually happening. Chick n Sours' Carl Clarke has a DJ past, so expect that to be put to good use in the downstairs bar called Sub Culture, where you can expect a regularly changing soundtrack and, of course, a DJ box. And on top of that a curated cocktail and beer list - they've teamed up with Horace Panter from The Specials to create the first of an ‘artists’ series of beers. That'll be Jamrok, described as "a Jamaican lager with the strapline - Fine, all of the time".
