Purveyors of all things chicken, Whyte & Brown is the Soho restaurant bringing industrial interiors, enticing dishes and thirst-quenching drinks to the table. Think scotch eggs, chicken burgers and sharing plates, with a long list of wines, beers, cocktails and spirits to choose from.

Sweet Chick

If you like your chicken fried up on a Belgium waffle then Sweet Chick (owned by hip-hop legend Nas) is the place for you. The American restaurant specialises in a host of options, think BBQ, kung pao and buffalo-style, alongside a number of other plates from their native country.

You may know BrewDog for their extensive range of craft beer, but they're also backing everything up with heaps of fried chicken goodness. Head on over to one of their bars for fried chicken burgers and wings alongside meat-free versions and spicy cauliflower bites. 

This Hoxton Square restaurant is home to some of the best fried chicken in East London. Think, a buttermilk coating with paprika, garlic and brown sugar then fried in cayenne-infused oil, making sure your meal at Louie's always has a little extra kick to it.
