Spit Jacks

March 31st 2015

What: Spit Jacks
Where: Hackney


Where once the chicken bones were on the pavement, the chicken is now described with fancy names such as buttermilk, whole spit or half spit. Welcome to Hackney, where the guns have stopped clapping, expensive flats have now gone up opposite the once notorious Pembury Estate and the scariest thing you'll see these days is a group of bearded men with rolled up trousers.

Spit Jacks does fall foul of having 'buttermilk' chicken on the menu and is slightly overpriced but it’s not a bad place to go if you happen to find yourself anywhere near Victoria Park in E9. It serves tapas and chicken and also has a back terrace for when the weather gets better.
