Why we love it

Our relationship with absurd bird started with love at first bite. Well actually, if we’re honest, just seeing pictures of their fried chicken and waffles on their website sent our heart fluttering - but it wasn't until we got our hands on a portion ourselves did we truly fall head over heels. Let us explain...

Inspired by the deep south, Absurd Bird have created a space of refuge for all types of fried chicken aficionados. Usually, finding a fried chicken joint that manages to nail the balance of succulent meat with a crispy skin is tough - but Absurd Bird are ruffling feathers when it comes to the top notch quality of their meat. They’ve managed to muster a miracle by keeping things tender, whilst providing the crunch we all crave. So whether you wing it on the regular or prefer your chicken in a bun, their extensive menu featuring a whole heap of creative styles to serve fried chicken is guaranteed to float your boat.

You might be surprised to hear that Absurd Bird also have a cracking vegan selection too, including their unique buffalo chckn burger, vaffles (vegan waffles) and a staple vegan mac and cheese.

And what’s a fried treat without something good to wash it down with? Luckily for you, the beating heart of this hangout is their large bar which serves a stellar selection of beers, ciders and cocktails. They’ve even got some mammoth sharing cocktails if you’re heading over with a crew and fancy nothing more than a huge long island iced tea for the table.

Stick your beak in next time you’re calling by and embrace a little slice of fried-chicken heaven.
