Ash Recommends: BIRD
With the Summer now officially over (although, September can be ok sometimes), I feel the need to turn our focus from Summer sun, to Autumn eats. So on the bank holiday just gone, I went out with Helen and our friend Sarah and headed to Camden Town, to enjoy the last of the sunshine. I took my camera because I've gotten out of the habit of not carrying it around with me (See my confidence post here). If i'm truly honest I wasn't that inspired by the surroundings that day, but, what I did photograph, was our trip to Bird, a fried chicken shop on Chalk Farm Road.
Don't worry, up until about a week before, I hadn't heard of it either, but my oh my, is this place amazing! Forget your run of the mill chicken shops after a night on the town, this place is different. Serving free range fried chicken, with batter that melts in your mouth and has an amazing crunch to it.
I decided to go for the Waffle Burger and it was officially, the best burger I've ever had. Now, I'm kind of bias because I'm a big fan of chicken and waffles. It's genuinely the first thing that I'd go for as a 'cheat meal' - thats code for a meal where calories don't matter or containing 'YOLO MACROS', which I've seemed to be following a lot recently, hence the drastic weight gain over the last however many months. But this place...was fully worth it. Great service. Friendly and accommodating staff, who obviously have a love for the place. Delicious food. What more can you ask for...how about donuts and cocktails?! They have those too. I've not tried them, but it's the perfect excuse to go back!
Location: Camden, Chalk Farm Road
Price Range: Waffle burger £14, fries with gravy £5
