Wishbone Brixton

Wishbone Brixton

American | Brixton | Dirt cheap

Right at the heart of foody hot-spot Brixton market, backed by one of the dudes behind Meat Liquor and tapping into London’s current obsession with all things chicken, it’s kind of hard to imagine this place being anything other than a wild runaway success. And judging by the buzz on a recent freezing cold Wednesday the odds are looking good. Ok, let’s break it down. You got a shop front in Brixton market (with scant heating so wrap up warm) and a simple menu of fried chicken and er, fried chicken. You can get wings, thighs or a sandwich (but stick to the wings and thighs). The(free-range) chickens are fried to perfection; reassuringly unhealthy, delightfully crunchy and in a delicious array of marinades with a variety of satisfyingly messy sauces for dunking. Wash it all down with the surprisingly classy (and really great) sours on offer behind the bar – with or without egg white. A word of warning: do not, under any circumstances take a date to this place. Eating here is one hot (delicious) mess.
