The Bok Shop Brighton – Fried Chicken

Quality chicken at the Bok Shop Brighton

Fried chicken is one of those American imports to these shores that the people have gone wild for. Until now, Brighton has been at the mercy of the large multinational chain restaurants or those that you would only consider after one or two grown up drinks.

This gourmet chicken shop has been inspired by the many quality chicken shops of London, where owners Jamie, Howard and Matthew grew up and discovered a love for all things fried. Having moved to Brighton, they saw a gap in the market for a quality fried chicken shop and so decided to open their own.


Quality Fried Chicken

The Bok Shop has simple goals; to bring quality fried chicken to the people of Brighton and Hove. They have worked hard to develop a simple menu of chicken based dishes, many of which have vegan and vegetarian alternatives. Taking classic fried chicken and turning it up to a new level has taken months of development, but the guys are confident that they have brought a quality product to market. Match this with the stylish design led restaurant and the Bok Shop certainly looks every part the gourmet fast food option it aims to be.

    Visited twice in May 2018 and was very happy with the food and the service. However, our most recent visit on August Bank Holiday was a complete disaster which left us with little choice but to drive to Worthing to eat at a place that we knew could accommodate us. We are a family of food allergies and intolerances, we must avoid all dairy including eggs, celery and mustard, therefore we plan ahead where we will eat. On our August visit we were told that the chicken used for the burger was marinaded in buttermilk even though this was not stated on the current menu. The menu was exactly the same as our May visit. Shame there isn’t somewhere to report this kind of inconsistency within the food service industry to.

    Came here in the first week of opening eager to try their vegan chicken burger, the owner was out and about keen to tell us about their development of the recipe, this was clearly important to him and they’d put a lot of effort into it. The ‘chicken’ burger was good, it wasn’t a heavy lump of seitan that had been breaded, deep fried and put in a bun, that’s the kind of carb hit you just don’t get up from, it had good texture and flavour. I hasten to add I’ve not eaten a chicken in over 25 years so I have no idea how appealing it is to someone who likes chicken but would like to cut back/ stop eating meat. But I would eat here again, I’m a believer in supporting the vegan aspect of a menu in places that wouldn’t normally cater for us
