Ma’ Plucker of Soho’s Beak Street has combined fried chicken with doughnuts to create new “Dirty Doughnuts”.
The eatery has created three dirty doughnuts including fried chicken with peanut butter, streaky bacon served on a jam filled doughnut, fried Chicken with jalapeño jelly served on a honey glazed mini doughnut and pulled BBQ Chicken with apricot jelly served on a smoked paprika mini doughnut.
The doughnuts are served exclusively as part of Ma’s Dirty Birds & Doughnuts Afternoon Tea alongside a boozy cocktail and three mini desserts for £18.50 per person.
Nick Cuadrado, Culinary Director, Ma’ Plucker, said: “We wanted to create something unique special that you just cannot try anywhere else in London, I knew I wanted a super soft carrying vehicle for the mini fried chicken fillets that are super tender and juicy.
“We tried all sorts of demi brioche, soft American sweet glaze, potato rolls and even American biscuits (scones) but all where a little dense. We came up for an idea after I saw the trend in the USA for doughnut beef burgers, its then I questioned would it work well for spicy fried chicken.
“The first doughnut fried chicken we tasted brought smiles to our faces – its really shouldn’t work from the minds perspective mixing sweet & savoury but it just works, soft, spicy, salt and sweet in one hit.
“We then took it to the next stage can we match coffee inspired drinks to get that classic coffee and doughnuts combination that everyone loves. The cold brew espresso martini is the perfect partner not to mention the cherry beer which works very well!! Dirty doughnuts is a well thought out concept and experience that you can’t find anywhere else”
Having opened in 2015 in the heart of London, Ma’ Plucker has firmly formed itself as one the best destinations for luxury buttermilk dipped chicken in London. Nested on Beak Street in Soho, the restaurant is well placed for a quick bite at lunch or an after work cocktail and dinner as well as weekend leisurely brunches.
