Joe’s southern kitchen, Covent Garden

Me and the girls met up for a good ol’ fashioned Friday night catch up at Joe’s Southern Kitchen, Covent Garden. Infamous for their cheeky tweets, tantalising chicken and tremendous cocktails, it seemed a natural choice.Bare bricks, beards and lumberjack shirted folk serve you, yep we’ve entered hipsterville a little further west, but high ho, high ho…. Oh stop it.

Getting back to the important bit, the food! We plumped for a Beer can Chicken to share between four.

Whilst we were waiting we got our hands on the cocktail menu, and got a round in. I’ve had a real thing for lychee recently, so The lychee was the one for me! But I can tell you the French martini was pretty snazzy too! When the chicken came to the table it was proudly sitting atop a beer can, then whisked away to be carved for you. Look at that bbq sticky glaze, yep I’m hungry again!

Joe’s recommends a whole chicken feeds 2-3, but with a side each we were utterly stuffed by the end.

Now the sides are pretty dishy too. With the likes of chunky chips – which are like a smokey bbq version of a roasty; chicken salt sprinkled fries – finger lickin’ goooood; and pulled pork with butter beans, yep they just melt in your mouth.

ย If you try their macaroni cheese, let me know, as that looked amazing with a crunchy top and oozing cheese, I wasn’t staring at it longingly at all…

& if all that ain’t enough to lure you in, cocktails are ยฃ4 till 6.30pm at Covent garden.

Now, clean off those mitts, possibly some drool too and get yourself down there!!!

Joe’s is a great spot for some cheeky chicken, when you want somewhere other than Nando’s. Good price, good food, good service – even if they look like they’ve come fresh from cutting down a tree, at least their happy about it!

P.s. their bar, cocktail baby in the cellar below the diner, looks pretty nifty for a night out or carry the night on with one or two after dinner!
