The newly opened burger joint Beef and Birds in Whitechapel, located in the heart of Brick Lane, is one of the latest additions to the halal restaurant market in London.
I have previously written about them when I visited them during a soft launch. The food was great, juicy and succulent. You can read more about that here. This post will be part two of the Beef and Birds review. In this post, we will also be reviewing the unique dark chocolate BBQ chicken wings!

So the highlight has to be the dark chocolate BBQ wings. I was a little sceptical about these chicken wings but upon delivery, it looked really appetising. But before we talk about the dark chocolate BBQ wings, let me tell you about the two new burgers I had from Beef and Birds.
The Dirty Diana Burger
This burger had a juicy succulent beef patty. Topped with mushroom, which was drenched in a spiced creamy, peppercorn sauce. I really enjoyed this burger. Along with the soft bun, the patty and mushrooms. It may not be a burger for everybody, but the combination went really well.
The musical name of this burger reminded me of Band of Burgers, which is also located in Brick Lane. You can read more about them here.
The Angry Bird Burger
The Angry Bird burger is a chicken burger, between a soft brioche bun and has a nice kick of spice! Complimented with tamarind, this burger was definitely nice and one we enjoyed. The chicken breast used in the burger was brined, making it soft and moist. It almost tasted like the thigh of the chicken.
The highlight: Dark Chocolate BBQ Chicken Wings
These were certainly the highlight for us. A rather unusual but unique idea, one we had to taste! The BBQ Dark Chocolate wings had a subtle taste of dark chocolate combined with a subtle kick of BBQ sauce. It surprisingly went well with the chicken wings. The chicken was crisp and juicy inside. Although I did enjoy the Korean wings more, I would not hesitate to order the dark chocolate BBQ wings again.
I did visit Beef and Birds again just for a quick lunch of Burgers and the BBQ Dark Chocolate wings. However, on my most recent visit, I found that it lacked any dark chocolate flavour and was sourer than before. I did bring it up with the staff, who told me that it may be a bad batch of marinade.
I wanted to try the Beef and Birds short ribs but unfortunately, at the time when I went, it was sold out. I plan to try it on my next visit for sure.
