Not that London needed another cluckin’ chicken joint, but we got one and Cocotte is doing it right. Taking roost in Notting Hill, the healthy rotisserie serves up free-range birds from La Chapelle d’Andaine farm in France. So we decided to ditch Nandos and venture West to give it a go.
With a simple menu, the marinated roast chicken takes centre stage and comes either whole, half or quartered. Succulent and flavoursome, it’s exactly what it says on the tin. But the real dilemma is choosing sides from the HUGE list of healthy salads including our fave, the Fernande salad with barley, pomegranate, feta, baby salad and spring onions to the less healthy truffle mac ‘n’ cheese and THOSE baby roast potatoes with chicken gravy. HUBBA HUBBA. When it came to dessert the selection is small but their mochi; small balls of ice cream coated in a sticky rice cake, are perfect if you’ve over indulged (and let’s face it you will have)
Cocotte might be the new kid on the block, but this neighbourhood joint definitely isn’t wingin’ it.
