Hey hey fam, I hope everyone is doing well! Christmas countdown right? 2018 coming by so quickly!
Anyway, if you are looking for venues for your Christmas do, make sure you are checking out my restaurants reviews and gurl and guys, do I have another review for you! lets goo
So another thing I have been into this year (among the many other things) is restaurants with live music. I have been to two so far: Chino Latino & Jazz Café so Ihave been on the hunt for more. Last Saturday night, I found myself at Red Rooster in Shoreditch for some good food and live music!
We got there about 10 mins earlier than our reservation but we were taken downstairs to the main dining area and seated promptly. It was a busy night but the waitress, Demi( shout out to you girl!) took our order quickly. We ordered the Bird Royale Feast which comes with a whole chicken, waffles, biscuits, mac & cheese and pickled cabbage. This is enough for 2 or more people and Yas and I were up for the challenge.It wasn’t long till we saw our chicken coming with a sparkler on top. They present it this way for you to grab your snaps and pics before it dies down and is taken away ( good move Red Rooster!). after that your real deal arrives!
Let me tell you about that feast gurl! That chicken, that gravy sauce or whatever it was and them biscuits gurllllllllllllll. It was so good. You don’t get fries with this feast but honestly, you don’t even need that. I have never had chicken and waffles before – only because I think it’s a weird combo but girl I had it here and it’s like a party in your mouth. I have been missing out!
Let me tell you why Demi was the real MVP that night. So the live music set started around about 9 pm and our table was tucked away from the stage area so we wanted to move to the bar, for a better view of the stage. At this point, we had finished eating and packed our take aways LOL so we call her over and ask her. She says will find some seats for us and comes back 5 mins later telling us two spots just opened by the bar so we should move quickly before it gets taken. By the time we get our jackets and get there, literally in 5 mins, it was gone LOL. It was a really busy night. But anyway she apologies and tells us to stay by as she will (try) to find us another. So we are just chilling by the bar area, enjoying the music, about 15 mins later another waiter comes with a chair for us and we were like oo ok thank you! we were standing by the bar but there were no seats so he went to find seats for us aww and he was cute LOL. we are not sure if Demi told him or he just saw us vibing to the music so much he brought us chairs but we were grateful
On Saturday nights, we have R & B, old school music and the band- andjustvibes were killing it! They did all the old school songs you could just sing a lot too! We stayed there about an hour and a half after our meal just listening to music. We actually didn’t wanna leave but you see the way the trains are set up! Demi recommended their Gospel brunch on Sundays and I definitely want to go back! And this is me, boujie me that doesn’t like going back to the same restaurant twice- I have only done that ONCE with Miller & Carter. Hm
We really enjoyed our time and food at Red Rooster and that live music set with Andjustvibes just topped it all off for us! It’s a busy restaurant with a mediumish dining room so definitely BOOK in advance!
So folks, Red Rooster is a yes from me! I will catch you later with some more restaurant reviews but there are a few on the blog so make sure you check them out!
