Street food giants and spicy sauce wizards Orange Buffalo have moved into their first indoor space at the Hoxton Bar and Kitchen. This is first and foremost a music venue, but once you’re past the sticky floors, there’s lots to get excited about here, because they’re serving all the Orange Buffalo classics along with some new options. Their Buffalo Burger is a real winner and their onion rings are perfectly crunchy and salty. But the wings are still the tastiest thing on the menu, and the addition of curly fries to proceedings made us slightly emotional. Beware the hidden ‘Viper’ amongst the ‘Snake in a Basket’ - a lucky dip of each of their wings - which will literally burn your entire face into a tree’s worth of kitchen roll. Mini milks are available on request, a truly inspirational piece of customer service.
