Bigbe Chicken 喜噠噠 (Now called Good Friend 好朋友) - London China Town

Note: The shop has now moved to where Sun Leun Bakery used to be on Lisle Street (no more bakery!!! :( So sad). It's now called Good Friend 好朋友 - and it looks like they're selling more items...).

The hike with Miss Money consisted of talking politics, travelling and food!

Because she works around the China Town area she and colleagues like to explore the area they know when there's a new restaurant opening or where there are lunch deals. ^_^ LOL!! 

Miss Money had told me about this place called Bigbe Chicken 喜噠噠 (Mando: xi dada, meaning "like dada") which opened towards the last week of April. The English meaning is weird, and I don't know why they called themselves Bigbe Chicken... basically no meaning. She told me not to blog about this place because it will just become too busy during her lunch hours!! Hahahahah. Tough luck. 

MummyGeek and I went to China Town one weekend and we had some really disappointing dim sum at New World Restaurant...



So there are basically 5 items on the menu (not including the drinks):
1. BBC's Superstar - Deep Fried Squid (which was not ready when I went) - £6.50
2. Deep Fried Chicken Breast - £5.50
3. Deep Fried Drumstick - £3.99
4. Popcorn Chicken - £2.99
5. Fried Sweet Potato - £2.99

The owners are from Taiwan, so they speak Mandarin and English... I tried to speak in Mandarin but then converted to English... ¬_¬"" Still need to work on the Mandarin folks.


I wanted to order the squid, but there was none ready. :( Maybe next time when I go to China Town... 

So instead, I started off with the popcorn chicken with the Special Powder sprinkled on top. There are various spices you can add to the chicken.

The sweet potato was sprinkled with the plum powder... wooow... it tasted plummy and the potatoes were fried really well. ^_^

The one thing that Miss Money told me to try out was the chicken breast. It's massive! The way it's rolled out to make it 10 cm is amazing! Added the Thai spice on this one and I wanted to eat this on the bus. :D 

Miss Money said to eat them as soon as you get it because it's still fresh and crunchy. By the time you get home it becomes all soggy... :( 

Cost came to £11.48. Well worth a try! I just can't wait to try out the squid!!!! Unfortunately they aren't selling squid anymore... so sad!

My geeky rating: 5/5

Good points:
- Cooked on the spot
- Good prices
- Good service
- Get to choose your own spices to add to your chicken, squid or fries

Bad points:
- Slippery floor, just be careful

Address: 10 Little Newport Street, London WC2H 7JJ



This is the new location... it's a few doors down from the original shop.
