Where chicken is no laughing matter: Absurd Bird

This review was originally published via TripAdvisor.

Remember our chicken bucket list?  Well, we haven’t forgotten about it.  As I said in that post, I love chicken so any place serving chicken is a must-visit place for me.  Even it it’s just once, however, I will definitely be going back to Absurd Bird on 54 Commercial Street (near Spitalfields Market) in London.
You come into an interesting space with the bar in front. The seating spaces are interesting. There are interesting booths and long tables with homey upholstered benches.


The space is great because one wall is made up of huge glass panels allowing the natural light to come in. The light fixtures are very interesting – gilded bird cages!


The food is definitely no laughing matter.  We ordered the fried chicken sliders with a

It is excellent value for money and what we ordered was delicious! While we ordered on main meal and side each, I think what we ordered would have fed 4 people. The servings are generous and they are certainly worth every penny you pay for.

We didn’t order any alcoholic drinks but they serve lagers and cocktails I think.

The staff are amazing and very attentive without being helicopter servers! You do get a chance to relax and enjoy the food that you ordered.
