The Chicken Shop has finally opened at Tooting Broadway. To say I am beyond excited is an understatement, as a resident for 7 years and a supporter of Tooting pretty much all my life it was a long time coming but the community spirit and buzz around the new openings is thrilling.
Obviously the top ones are press photos and the last few grainy pics are mine...but I have to say it was delicious. A quarter chicken is only £4 and more than enough for a single person, it comes within 4 minutes from the rotisserie and seasoned to perfection. It is quite dark and candlelit but this adds to the ambience, it has a real buzz inside - half is atmosphere and the other half is disbelief that anything this cool has opened up in our neighbourhood. But thank goodness it has. I had a lovely dinner with my sister (you have to try the apple pie - it was out of this world) and then enjoyed some live music inside Tooting Market. Freedom for Tooting!
