Opening: Peck's fried chicken flies in Bury
Suffolk street food hero Peck, loved for its top-notch fried chicken, has opened in bricks-and-mortar in Bury St Edmunds
Suffolk reared, buttermilk brined, home coated, cooked fresh: this is fried chicken, but not as you know it. Starting life as a street food venture, pitching in Ipswich, Colchester and Bury St Edmunds, Peck has just opened its first bricks-and-mortar takeaway on Bury’s St John’s Street - and its chicken is going down a storm.
“This has been a long time coming, so it's very exciting to share it with people,” says Nathan Grinham, who runs Peck with partner Jessie Brown. “We weren't expecting [the launch] to be as busy as it was. Honestly it was a bit overwhelming!”
With signature buns including the Mumma Hen (lemon and thyme mayo, lettuce, pickles) and Miss Maple (smoked pancetta, garlic infused maple syrup, black pepper mayo, pickles), all star crispy coated chicken thigh. The chicken is sourced from a Suffolk farm, the coating and sauces are homemade, and the buns come from Bury bakery Wooster’s.
Wings, tenders, shakes and sides - special mention for the Cow Girl Fries, loaded with parmesan, pancetta, buttermilk ranch dressing, pickle bits and chives - are also on the menu.
