We all have that one friend who refers to Soho as ‘a playground of suffering’. And you know what, after spending half of your savings on Oxford Street before having a spectacularly tall tourist sneeze on your forehead, you might be inclined to agree with them. But that’s exactly why you need cool, affordable, casual places like Coqfighter in your restaurant repertoire. They specialise in fried chicken and prime comfort food like butter chicken burgers, a szechuan mayo bao, and your classic wing situation that comes with a banging Korean hot sauce. Honestly, if a couple of their negronis and decorating some drumsticks in soy garlic glaze with a paintbrush won’t calm down your Soho stress, then we don’t know what will.
