A new restaurant serving free-range southern fried chicken has opened today in London's Portobello Road district.
Moral Fox Fried Chicken has 30 covers and is owned by Robie Uniacke. On the site of well-known former nightclub the Globe, it combines inspiration from American cooking techniques and the Globe's Caribbean background. General manager is Laura Gallacher, who worked on the Electric Diner opening for Soho House Group.
The new site's menu has been designed to focus on fried chicken, using a "top secret" batter recipe developed by Uniacke to be crunchy and crisp. The menu offers plain fried, spicy, or in a sandwich, and sides include coleslaw, corn on the cob and sweet potato mash.
Weekly changing menu choices might include chilli-creamed corn, while "secret menu" items could be pancetta and chive mac ‘n' cheese, or chocolate milk. Desserts are along the lines of ice cream with Oreo biscuit crumbs.
The drinks menu includes homemade lemonade and raspberry lemonade, a brandy milk punch with vodka and Amaretto, and Camden lager and ale.
Expected spend is about £20 per head, including a drink.
