LONDON | Chick ‘n’ Sours Dalston is often touted as serving up the best fried chicken in London and indeed, owner Carl Clarke has changed how London thinks of fried kitchen. The restaurant is small but the flavours back a mighty punch of Asian flavor. Chinese flavours sit side by side with Japanese, Korean and Thai flavours amongst others to create some tantalising flavour combinations.

The service is excellent. We’ve been a few times and on the one occasion where the service was a bit slow (we didn’t even notice to be honest, helped along by the eclectic soundtrack no doubt) our waiter apologized for the service taking so long and offered up a complimentary order of delicious disco sticky wings (£5.50 small/£7.50 large). We have had our fair share of wings in London (especially during our The City Lane London Chicken Wing Challenge) at Chick ‘n’ Sours are up there – mouthwatering deliciousness.

We started with the Szechuan Aubergine (£5.50) which was totally moreish and packed the numbing sensation one expects when they hear the word Szechuan. We also had the guest fry (£11.00) which rotates seasonally and is inspired by the staff’s travels and other’s versions of fried chicken. On this occasion it was a black bean and ginger Chinese inspired creation.

Next up we went for the boneless chicken tenders which were crispy, not oily at all and full of flavour (£8.00). The tenders come with a choice of 1 dip ranging from a blue cheese St. Agur & Buttermilk to a bone marrow BBQ. We couldn’t pass up the bone marrow BBQ and were suitably impressed. We also shared a few sides including Dripping Fries (£3.50), House Pickles (£3.00), and an incredible Korean spiked salad consisting of Charred Hispi, Kimchi Salad Cream & Bacon (£4.50).

As it suggests on the tin, the venue also specializes in sour cocktails. We washed down this amazing food with a few custom blended cocktails were priced between £6.00-7.00. The Chick ’n’ Club included Gin, sugar, lemon, raspberry and chili vinegar, vermouth, and sour. We really enjoyed the Bitter Kentucky consisting of bourbon, cynar, passionfruit, lemon, and sour.

Despite being absolutely stuffed, we could not pass up the Chick’n’Sours dessert which was a fried brioche crumble served atop a chocolate miso mousse. Outstanding.

Eschewing the no-bookings trend, Chick ‘n’ Sours takes bookings using Open Table during the week and also offers takeaway.

We left completely satisfied and our only disappointment was in how long we took to make it there. Unsurprisingly we’ve been back a few times since. Also good news for those of you who might find it hard to get to Dalston – a Covent Garden location will be opening in September this year, offering up the same good stuff you can find at the original but also open for lunch instead of dinner.
