Last week, Bridgerton and Derry Girls actress Nicola Coughlan was a guest on the “Off Menu” podcast.

For those unfamiliar with it, the podcast welcomes celebrities to their “dream restaurant” where they choose their favorite starter, main course, side dish, dessert, and drink.

Nicola, who stars in Clare on the sitcom Derry Girls, praised a place in south London that she believes would be the main course of her dreams.

The Irish actress, who lived in Peckham, described local fried chicken restaurant Other Side Fried as: “God-tier, unbelievably amazing.”

She goes on to talk about one particular chicken burger that she says is so good it is “absolute dirt.”

“It’s so crisp, there’s grated Parmesan on it.”

She mentioned that it is also appetizing on a brioche bun, with garlic mayonnaise and pickles that she “loves”.

Nicola refers to the restaurant’s Garlic Butter Mayo Burger which costs a respectable £ 7.45, which she says “is worth every penny”.

Showing a picture of the burger to podcast hosts, comedians Ed Gamble and James Acaster, it’s clear his obsession is justified.

Ed said it sounded “absolutely huge” and James seemed so impressed that he was unable to say any other words, repeating “woah” over and over.

She also shouted out their Dirty Fries which cost just £ 5.25 and include bacon, Parmesan, ranch sauce and hot sauce. They also offer vegan options that look just as delicious. It’s also worth knowing that their chicken is halal.

Although the Bridgerton star continued to change her pick, rather comically to “Robbie Williams Wrap” (you’ll have to listen to the podcast to figure this one out), she said she hadn’t lived near another. fried side “for ages, it’s really sad”.

Looking at the restaurant’s only Instagram account, Nicola says “you just wanna lick it”.

You can find Other Side Fried in Brixton, Camden Market, Peckham Levels, Lewisham and Hammersmith.

They also serve their culinary pornography-worthy meals on Deliveroo.
