There are some nights when you just need fried chicken. Clockjack in Soho covers everything chicken, from fried to rotisserie and plenty of chicken wings with sauces to choose from. We had been wanting to try it out for a while and finally our fried chicken cravings got the best of us, so after making a quick booking 20 minutes before hand, we delved right in to Clockjack in Soho.
Inside Clockjack it is much bigger than the outside portrays, plenty of seating and high table seats near the rotisserie chickens cooking.
We started off with chicken wings, in which there are various sauce coverings to choose from including; Chilli, BBQ, Peri-Peri, Korean Angry Wings and Glazed Teriyaki and Pineapple. You can order them in batches of 5 or 10, so we opted for 5 BBQ and 5 Teriyaki and Pineapple. I wasn’t expecting these wings when they came, they were huge. Normally chicken wings are pretty small so was really happy with the portion size of these. I tried the teriyaki first and loved it straight away, but then along came BBQ and I was torn. Both were amazingly tasty!
For mains we both ordered the fried chicken burger, with buttermilk chicken in a brioche bun with the usual trimmings. I was excited about this burger, but then I’m afraid to say, to be totally let down. Maybe it’s just my preference but I don’t like it when the bun is chargrilled and the chicken just wasn’t juicy or tasty enough. Danny not one to fuss over a burger, also wasn’t taken by it. The fries however were great and exactly how they should be.
For dessert we decided to share a strawberry sorbet, this was two scoops and tasted homemade, not sure if it was, but was rather lovely!
I’d definitely go back to Clockjack, I loved the wings and it would be great to try the rotisserie chicken or one of the other mains, I’ll just pass on the burger next time.
