BAO Fitzrovia launches Fried Chicken and Whisky Nights


Fried chicken, whisky and bao – what more could you want out of life?!

On 26th March, BAO Fitzrovia will launch Fried Chicken and Whisky Nights – a series of suppers celebrating the BAO founders’ love of Taiwanese fried chicken and Asian whisky.

The evenings will be brought to life through the graphics of Jean Jullien, the internationally renowned French illustrator known for his distinct style and observational humour. Jean’s portfolio includes celebrated collaborations with the likes of The New Yorker, Tate and Channel 4. Now based in London, Jean’s penchant for BAO meant he was a natural fit for the job.

Priced at only £25pp, the fried chicken set menu will include one large chicken breast steak, butterflied twice, marinated in soy milk and fried in BAO’s special spiced flour; chicken thigh pieces and wings, shredded cabbage and a selection of dressings, plus a first for BAO lovers – an extra large deep fried bao, piped full of BAO’s delicious cheese sauce and grilled to finish.

BAO Fitzrovia’s vast selection of Asian whiskies will be celebrated through a bespoke drinks menu made up of Nikka and Kavalan in the form of High Balls, Sours and Drams.

Since opening in July 2016, BAO Fitzrovia has received critical acclaim for its signature steamed Taiwanese buns and creative design ethos. This upcoming succession of dinners is set to be another successful venture from the founding trio, Shing Tat Chung, Wai Ting Chung and Erchen Chang and one which for fried chicken aficionados may change the face of Monday nights completely.
