Cookhouse Joe, Soho, London
Week two of new job and we headed off to Cookhouse Joe for a work lunch to see the weekend through. It’s a popular haunt amongst the crew here, and it’s easy to see why with £7 getting you half a chicken, fries, and a side from a selection of coleslaw, salad and corn. You also get a sauce, mine was garlic and yeah, sorry about that afternoon breath. Not quite an aioli, there’s a rustic chunkiness to this sauce.
The chicken’s cooked really well, and you get plenty on the tray for a end of week appetite. Chips are good, but rumour has it that you get way more when you get takeaway. I was a bit meh on the corn, and the chicken could have benefited from a few herbs, but altogether, a fairly good lunch break.
