REVIEW: Coqfighter, Boxpark Shoreditch

REVIEW: Coqfighter, Boxpark Shoreditch


WHAT? Vodka-battered chicken wings, panko fried chicken burgers and piles of crunchy pickles so good they’re sure to ruffle the Colonel’s feathers.

WHERE? Boxpark Shoreditch’s myriad food options lacked a posh chicken shop, until Coqfighter flew over from the Croydon branch.

BEST DISH: Burgers are a must (start with the towering Green Chilli Cheese, a panko-fried chicken thigh with pickled green chilli, American cheese, smokey chipotle & sriracha mayo) but pig out and grab some fluffy Bao buns, too – stacked with noodles, Szechuan mayo, coriander, pickled daikon and crispy panko thigh, they’re pillow-soft perfection. Don’t overlook sides, either – fries are covered in dashi and smoked paprika salt, slaw doused in crunchy onion.

While you’re at it, get some wings to share – they come with an adorable little paintbrush to help you spread two tasty glazes exactly where you want them.

Interiors are plain and simple, a few trendy succulents brightening up wood surroundings – we suggest heading outside to the benches with a big group, to eke out every al fresco opportunity before the temperature drops.

ADDRESS: 2-10 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6GY
