What better way to get you through hump day than wings Wednesday! Fried chicken is no doubt a staple in everyone’s unhealthy food’s guilty pleasure book but let’s not pretend we are all going to stick to some new diet plan to the T that we promised to start months ago. Rather, let’s openely celebrate cheat days with some good old fried chicken to ride you through that mid-week hump 🙂
Introducing… Wings Wednesday at Bird, Shoreditch, London.
- 12 buffalo wings with blue cheese dip
- 12 honey garlic glazed wings
The wings Wednesday deal consists of 12 wings and a beer for £10. Decent offer!
My friends weren’t that keen on the wings but it was great value for money and it was decent wings.
Saving the best dish of the night, let’s get a drum roll for the Original (fried chicken) Waffle Burger:
In all its delicious, dirty, mighty glory, the majestic waffle burger consists of two boneless fried free range chicken thighs, bacon, American cheese, house BBQ, mayo, hour sauce, maple syrup served between two hot griddled waffles.
The waffle burger was honestly a lot to eat in one go, the portion was massive, sandwiched amongst multiple combinations of sauces. Overall though, I was thoroughly satisfied; succesfully satisfied my cravings for fried chicken 🙂
Fine dining; fine (little) portions of food at Babylon; The Kensington Roof Gardens.
Lovely place with an even better surprise on the roof garden! Who would have thought to keep flamingos as a roof top garden attraction?! What a brilliant idea. The garden was the best part; aside from flamingos there was a man made stream and wooden bridges.
We had the set lunch menu on a week day. Cocktails were delicious but the food was just alright for what it was worth; not quite on my recommendations list. Unless you wanted decent enough food and didn’t want to travel far between the restaurant and the roof garden then the Babylon would be a good choice. Otherwise, for around £50 per person you’re better off elsewhere (with larger portions of food!).
