David Loftus
  • CHIK’N will restart offering breakfasts after temporarily suspending the morning service in the wake of their forced closure a fortnight ago. Next week, to relaunch, they’ll be offering 50% off all breakfast items (7 – 13 August.) Carl Clarke, the chef-owner told Eater London, “We’ve been focusing on nailing day-to-day ops and timings. Now it’s time to nail brekkie and give McDonald’s a run for their money.” Breakfast items include sausage muffins with egg, squidgy cheese and a proper hash brown; hotcakes with tenders and bacon maple syrup; and cheesy beans. Open from 7am — midnight everyday at 134 Baker St, London W1U 6SH.
