It’s safe to say that fried chicken has become the nation’s ‘it’ food – it is reported there are only three UK postcode districts that don’t boast a chicken shop*.
Not all are created equal through, ruling the roost is Slim Chickens and its flagship site on Cambridge Circus is now open following a star-studded launch.
Originating stateside and knocking rival chicken brands out of the park with the best, freshly prepared and cooked to order chicken in town, Slim Chickens was born in a garage in Fayetteville, Arkansas and, after years of mega success in the US, is now serving up its signature chicken tenders in the heart of London’s West End.
Bringing a modern twist to the brand’s unique southern hospitality, the Cambridge Circus site features dedicated service robots that can deliver buttermilk-marinated, hand-breaded crispy, full-of-flavour tenders straight to your table – and they even know how to sing Happy Birthday!
Slim Chickens is much more than just crunchy, juicy, succulent and satisfying fried chicken. There’s also freshly prepared salads, sandwiches, buffalo wings, wraps and waffles as well as clucking good sides of mac & cheese, fried pickles and Texas toast. And don’t forget, Slim Chickens’ epic line-up of house-made 14 sauces for plenty of dipping action – from Blue Cheese to Buffalo, Spicy Barbecue to Sriracha Garlic through to Mango Habanero for a serious spice hit.
The set meals offer exceptional value with three tenders, three wings, Texas toast fries, house sauce and bottomless soda at just £11.00. For breakfast, Slims will also be the only UK brand to serve up their famous chicken & egg Texas toast meal, featuring buttermilk chicken tenders, with smoked cheddar and a fried egg, plus hash browns and coffee or orange juice, for just £7.50.
Drinks include hand-spun shakes in flavours such as Oreo, popcorn and caramel, Budweiser, Coca Cola, and unique cocktails like the Corn Star Martini and Whisky Smash. Finish up with an exclusive frozen cheesecake dessert in either Strawberry Shortcake or Chocolate Cookie Dough varieties.
As well as delicious freshly made food, Slim Chickens is serving up a menu of great music from delta blues to American rock whilst also showing live sport.
Take-out, click and collect, linger in one of the intimate booths, have your chicken flown in via Deliveroo or order direct through the Slim Chickens app. Slim Chickens is for everyone, from students to families and office workers, looking for a delicious meal at any point of the day.
Slim Chickens rules the roost – always fresh and always tasty, this is chicken worth crossing the road for.
