The Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger restaurants are very well known on the culinary scene as the chain has a global footprint. The Chicken Shop Barcelona is the brainchild of Soho House founder, Nick Jones, and as you’d expect from one of the finest private member clubs in London, the food is top drawer.
Even though The Chicken Shop & Dirty Burger Barcelona opened in the Spring, it won’t be long before it welcomes a new edition to its outlets nearby.
Soho House Barcelona, a private members club, opens in October and applications for membership are open now via its website. Until then, you need to make do with wonderful chicken and gourmet burgers, and as you’d expect, the quality is high.
In Barcelona, competition in the restaurant sector is fierce, but the menu is priced reasonably. The recipes here are based on the Chicago and London outlets. The selection, service and décor combine to give The Chicken Shop a unique atmosphere and offering which sets it apart from other establishments.
The Barcelona site is an awesome venue, set in a 50s style. You won’t be disappointed! Just head to the bottom of the La Rambla, turn left and head 100m along Calle de Josep Anselm Clavé. It is located on Plaza del Duc de Medinaceli in the historic Gothic Quarter.
“Eating here is an experience that goes beyond the food. It is a place where you feel comfortable enjoying the taste of our products in a unique restaurant with a magnificent atmosphere,” says Christian de Martino, director of the restaurant.
The chicken is marinaded a full 24 hours before being spit-roasted from a mix of coal and wood before serving. The restaurant also markets its own range of sauces for the chicken, and they are proper hot one and a medium hot smoky sauce, which both give the meat and chips an extra kick. Apart from the meat and burger selections, vegan and vegetarian options are also available.
Stay and listen to light musical entertainment to accompany your meal from its team of tropical music DJs, or you can simply head out of the door and walk off the meal along the coastal road, Passeo de Colón, which is only a few yards away.
