We have all come to terms with the imminent opening of Soho House in Barcelona. What not everyone knows about his private club, which at first was devoted to film, fashion, art and mass media, is that is has just opened a restaurant a few meters away from the future hotel.
Chicken Shop & Dirty Burger serves the same food as its counterparts in London and Chicago—hamburgers and roasted chicken
Soho House founder Nick Jones, a visionary in the catering sector, drew inspiration from 1950’s diners to decorate it, and although it feels a bit cold on first contact, we’re sure it will create a lot of warm moments. The second part of the menu, the one that gives sense to the first part of its long name, features properly roasted free-range Empordá chickens—quarter, half or full servings. They are a bit spicier that traditional roasted chickens here, they are marinated for 24 hours and lightly steam-cooked. All chickens are roasted with carbon and wood.
Chicken Shop & Dirty Burger has an open kitchen that cooks Dirty Burger, Cheeseburger, Dirty Bacon and the veggie version Dirty Cop-Out. They come alone (prices are between 5€ and 7€) with an inhouse tender glazed bun so you can customize them to taste—with rippled potato chips, oil-bathed corncob or the legendary coleslaw.
It’s clear that Chicken Shop & Dirty Burger is not a place that will shine for its desserts. You can order apple pie or chocolate brownie. A meal at SohoHouse is about 15€, plus the tip for sitting in what is supposed to be the most cosmopolitan restaurant in the area.
