When a restaurant changes its suppliers due to demand then surely that’s a positive thing for the halal food industry. Serving up free range rotisserie chicken is Chicken and Foxes located opposite Baker Street station and one door down from Barista Bros.

I remember going in here a 6 months ago asking if they did halal, the answer was no at the time, but since then they said that every day they get people asking so they decided to cater for the halal consumer.

As you can see the menu is as simple as you ever going to get.

I opted for the ½ chicken spicy with roast potatoes and chips. I went on a friday night with a mate and the place was totally empty so the atmosphere was pretty dead. Not to worry as I was meeting a friend for a long overdue catch up so the peace and quiet in a busy city was welcomed.

The food arrived quickly. The chicken leg was cooked well, it was soft and had a decent level of juiciness to it, but i was not too impressed with the spice or flavour, i found lacking any real kick or taste. The chicken breast suffered from being really dry and bland. I found it hard to eat and ended up wasted a lot of it was it was not enjoyable to eat. The roast potatoes were awful, they were not cooked right at all, felt like they were reheated in a microwave from already being undercooked.

The service was okay at the start, but once we got our food we were never checked back on to see if everyone was okay. At the end of the meal i informed them about the lame roast potatoes and they took it off the bill.

My friend had the chicken salad, they have it a 5.5/10

I’d sick to nandos, but since there’s nothing similar in the area then hey it’s not a totally bad choice if you want something healthy-ish, but with burgerista next door, i know where i’d end up if i was in the area.
