Today I met up with a friend I hadn’t seen in ages for a quick lunch in Shoreditch, where I got to try out another of Boxpark’s eateries. This time, it was The Chicken Box.
The basic premise of The Chicken Box is fairly simple, as the photo above implies. You choose whether you would like a quarter chicken with one side (£5.50) or a half chicken with two sides (£9.50). Then you choose how you would like it cooked, out of a choice of BBQ, Jerk, Roast, Buttermilk, Honey & Soya or Tandoori.
There are then a wide variety of sides to choose from, including slightly more unusual options, such as potato gratin, basmati rice, and mac n cheese.
They also offer ‘already put-together’ options, such as Mexican Chicken Fajitas and Jerusalem Chicken Livers. I went for one of these options (largely because I hadn’t quite decided when the waiter came over, and I thought it would be easier to choose one of these, rather than having to put something together myself, lazy I know!), so I had the Cajun Chicken Breast Burger (served with guacamole, fries and salad), which was lovely! However next time, I think I’ll be a bit more adventurous 😉
The Chicken Box is located at Units 43 and 44 at Boxpark, Shoreditch: http://www.boxpark.co.uk/brand/chicken-box/
