Chicks over beef
|Smoked Confit Chicken Wings with BBQ sauce & Spring Onions|
Refusing to fall behind the "burger race" against rivals like Honest Burger and Meat Liquor, Patty & Bun have just launched its 4th site in Soho. Unlike the very first Patty & Bun near Bond Street, it is a lot bigger, spreading across two floors with a cocktail bar... and thank goodness, the mad queue is no longer visible. The "evil" roast chicken skin was naughty but packed with wonderful fatty flavours, super crispy with a great combination of sweet Maple and chilli hot sauce, this is junk food at its best.The thunder thighs with chilli butter was also done well, the meat was tender and finely seasoned, Nando doesn't even come close to it. The infamous confit chicken wings once again was fabulous, so good that I ordered two portion. the meat was moist with a wonderful sweet and smoky dressing, easily one of the best street food dishes in London.

I was not a fan of its burger from my last visit and this time was no difference, the Smoky Robinson burger was a street behind what other premium burger joints can offer right now, the patty was really under seasoned and both the bun and garnishes were served cold, it was a major disappointment. All I can say is, my latest experience at Patty & Bun was an improvement from last time, but it felt like more of a chicken affair. The burger supposes to be the main show of the restaurant, but somehow it has been overshadowed by its side dishes. To sum it up, a pretty solid addition to the Soho dining scene for anyone who is into good quality fast food, but be ready to spend close to £30 per person if you factor in alcohol.
