Going beyond the usual range of what chicken can offer is what Whyte & Brown aims to deliver to its customers at Kingly Court, just off London’s fashion centre at Carnaby Street. The main menu is a combination of different dishes made from the very best quality chicken and eggs, all served with spices from some of the best cuisines around the world. This is a restaurant that supports local farmers and is happy to say that every chicken and egg served there is organic and free range.
Whyte & Brown’s scenery is inspired by vintage decorations, not only seen all around the restaurant, but also found in the bathroom. Old-fashioned taps are scattered all over the wash-rooms and really makes cleaning your hands a special affair. Meanwhile, the staff run around with smiles, asking people if they need something more and offering new courses with such passion that it makes you feel more hungry than you actually are! As a bonus, they also like to be pretty prompt when delivering the food to your table.
The restaurant is celebrating the delicious diversity of chicken and the menu proves that this somewhat under-appreciated meat is anything but dreary. Whyte & Brown’s chicken can be prepared in so many ways that the tastes you experience are different almost every time. Brick Chicken – a speciality of the venue – is prepared with Whyte & Brown’s signature seasoning, a lemon, thyme and garlic combination that is cooked three different ways. Marinated breasts are roast-grilled under a brick oven, thighs are slow-cooked for 24 hours, while wings get a 12-hour treatment. They all come with a jug of natural home-made gravy and the resulting taste is exceptionally soft and delightful.
For a starter course, you can choose from different variations of eggs. One of the most attractive is the Bangkok Scotch Egg on Pickled Cucumber Salad which is minced chicken thigh meat mixed with lime leaf, coriander, mint, lemon grass, chilli and ginger. In the middle of this creation is a perfectly wild soft-boiled egg with a pinch of salt. All these herbs and spices make the Scotch Egg delicious and incomparable.
When it comes to dessert it is really hard to refuse. Seasonal Fruit Crumble comes with oats and a jug of real vanilla custard and is a great choice to end of your culinary experience. If you prefer something else, there are passion fruit tarts, brownies, ice cream or ‘Tipsy Trifle’ – a chocolate sponge mixed with Catalan custard and orange. Those who prefer something less sweet can choose from selection of cheeses, while the teas and coffees come with dairy-free organic rice milk.
All the dishes at Whyte & Brown are perfectly seasoned and create a sense of heaven in one’s mouth. It’s a perfect place to visit with friends when you want to have either a tasty lunch or dinner.
