Chicken, pretty much any way you like it

It is perhaps ironic that chicken seems to be flying in London. Following in the flightpath of Tramshed & Chicken Shop, Chooks (Aussie slang for hen) is plating a fowl menu in a wood-booth, brick-walled space whose starkness is offset by a big red neon rooster

The edible chooks come in myriad forms, from buttermilk fried hunks to wings and grilled whole/ half/ quarters sauced w/ lemon, BBQ, or either regular or "super spicy" buffalo. Likely putting you on the bench for the rest of your career, they also serve subs filled with Philly-cheesed or buffalo-style meat, and you can even get a "whole chicken tray dinner" with an entire bird neatly divided into roasted/fried halves, and sided with rice, slaw, beans w/ melted cheese, and onion rings

Helping all of that cross the road to your belly are jam jar frozen margs, Curious Brew lager & IPA from the award-winning Kentish vineyard at Chapel Down, and cider from Orchard Pig -- which people assume can't fly, but hey, look at these chickens.
