HALF A ROTISSERIE CHICKEN AND WEDGES | PARK ROAD KITCHEN | £8

BATTERSEA SW11 | CLAPHAM SW4


Sam Mousawi opened Park Road Kitchen Rotisserie & Deli in 2014 to give Battersea locals a much needed spot for healthy, prepared food to take away. And in late 2016, they opened a second site on Northcote Road. A few years later, he opened a second site in Clapham.

The main event is the rotisserie where Sam and team flame their chickens from Banham farm in Norfolk, after marinading them in-house. For £8.50 you can get 1/2 a chicken with their fantastic potato wedges, roasted with sea salt and lemon thyme - it's a weekly ritual in our flat. Alternatively, you could pick up a 1/4 chicken for £3.75 and go crazy in the salad section where an Ottolenghi-style selection awaits.

Then there are the lunch specials. Every weekday, from 12pm or so, a daily special is put on for £5.50-£6.50 until it runs out. Think Shepherd’s Pie with a deli salad, stuffed brisket baguette, sweet and spicy chicken wings with a side. And their pork belly Fridays have become a bit of an institution.

These neighbourhood spots are great for picking up a hearty and healthy meal - along with fantastic wines - to take home. They both have loyal local followings, but it’s also totally worth jumping out of Clapaham Common tube to pick something tasty up if you’re passing through on the Northern Line.

This is a mostly a take away joint, but there are seats to eat at should you wish to stay a while.

Update 15th September 2018 | The half a chicken with potato wedges used to be £8 but has increased to £8.50. It may be 50p above our magic £8 mark, but it’s still such a good deal that we decided to keep it on. Plus, many of their other combos and lunch specials still come in at under £8.
