Sometimes you see you work non-muslim friends post or talk about an epic burger they had and you get food envy because you know that burger won’t be halal, but one day you decide and ask if they have any halal options and booyah, you get the news that chicken is halal. Sold.
Located off oxford st, opposite Chi Kitchen, you will find the hipster cool Meat Liquor where all the male staff have the same beard 🙂 First of all, this place is dark and loud. So if you are not into that type of scene then this place won’t be your thing. Next, there’s no reservations for small groups so be prepared to queue up outside and then wait at the bar once inside.
Lucky, I was seated at the back where it was a little less noisy and away from the crowd. I have to apologise for the poor pictures here, the place is really dark!
The food came all at once so here is how it went down.
Braai Wings – £5.00 / Not sure of they are still in the menu now
South African-style BBQ chicken wings, dry-rubbed with spices and chargrilled. Has a fiery kick. Not that good, they were excessively char-grilled which left an overpowered burnt taste with each bite. 5/10
HIPPIE FRIES (V) 5.50
My partner in food crime told me that she heard that the Hippie fries were really good so we got those. These were epic and sooo good. It’s basically fries, grilled onions and hippie sauce. I love the grilled onions and sauce all over the chips, it was so unhealthy but I think a treat every now and then is not bad. 9/10
DIRTY CHICKEN CHEESEBURGER – 8.75
All the chicken burgers are the same price, which i liked. I opted for the Dirty Chicken Cheeseburger – deep fried chicken fillet, mayo, lettuce, cheese, red onions – a classic chicken burger. To be fair, this was a good burger but nothing amazing, just slightly better than a KFC burger, the chicken and ingredients were fresh but it was just too simple and no different to the burgers you can get a good pfc. 6/10
TOWER BLOCK BURGER = 8.75
We also got the tower block burger, fried chicken fillet with cheese, hash brown, jalapeños, slaw, onions & russian dressing. It’s very close to the burger above but the small extras really change the taste and overall food experience. The sauce that comes inside really brings all the ingredients together making a really nice burger 8/10.
I’d definitely come back here again for a quick burger and hippe fries, i also heard they have a good dessert menu, when i go next time i’ll be sure to add it on here.
