Chicken or the Egg? The latest offering at hip shopping mall and lifestyle complex H Code is The Chicken Bar, a Japanese fried chicken concept that serves up delish chicken sandwiches and other sides in trendy surrounds. You might’ve spotted it ahead of its opening at pop-ups at PMQ, Ginsanity, and Wan Chai burger restaurant Honbo.

Look & Feel: As its name suggests, seating at The Chicken Bar is reminiscent of bar counters, with bright colors and neon lighting blending to create a fun, casual atmosphere.

On the Menu: The Okonomiyaki Bun (a fried boneless thigh on a Hawaiian bun with dashi mayo, cabbage and BBQ sauce, $85) is the highlight of the menu, but we also have our eye on the New Orleans Hot Chicken Sandwich ($85) and the Salted Chicken Egg Salad Sandwich ($70). Sides include yuzu pickled daikon ($30), sweet potato fries ($50), and onion rings ($45). Watch out for new additions to the menu as its grand opening approaches.

Great For: Good, no-nonsense grub.

FYI: The Chicken Bar is open until 3am on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, so look forward to enjoying its chicken and booze til late into the night on the weekends.
