    I looked at that site. It says 'American-Style Chicken'. :eek:

    The thought of a Chicken Planet makes me a little bit afraid.

    Btw: what would 'british-style chicken' be: baked in a pie?

    Perhaps there should be an OKR Chicken on the Old Kent Road.

    There is a television advert for KFC (I think, or it may be another brand) that shows the chicken and the chips in close up. The meal looks very dry and unappetising. I have eaten a KFC a long time ago and yes it was rather dry. I prefer grilled chicken. I don't understand why chicken shops are springing up everwhere like dandelions in summer.

    Bump! What a thread!

    I was driving down Whitehorse Road in Croydon yesterday and saw a place called The Croydon Morley or something like that. I couldn't stop for a photo unfortunately.

    BTW the lookalikeys could of course be franchises.

    I didn't even know that this was a thing, let alone a South London specific thing.. and these two shops were 2 minutes walk from my front door the whole time (Loughborough Junction , se5) :facepalm:

    Ah but no, they are not legit franchises of the official chicken chain - they're just using the same colours and similar name to subliminally make people feel a familiarity with the chicken on offer, like so that they feel they know what they're getting. I think.

    When I had some older relatives visit me from abroad - their first trip to London too - their biggest impression and confusion was "why are there so many fried chicken shops"? There used to be three within a 2 minute walk of my old place - in fact on one parade there were two chicken shops within 4 doors of each other:facepalm: - see for yourself, a Berties and a MMM fake Morleys

    For the uninitiated, Jollibee is a major burger chain in the Philippines. I think the average pinoy would see that stallholder as aspiring to be a franchisee, not as someone trying to deceive them.

    Isn't it. Needs a regular bumping or someone to do a phd on it at the very least.

    in other S>E London chain news Gogi's off licenses have all shut down :( they were a bit shit tbh but still, a familair sight
    i knew of, and shopped in, 4 branches around lewisham, but there were definitely more than that.... according to the internet there were some as far as Thamsemead and Bexley

    i presume they all closed - the 4 i knew all have

    Was Gogi's some kind of an authentic offie thing that the fake gogis were copying??

    i think it was the empire of Mr Gogi, who died a few years ago - his empire held for a time but crumbled in the end
    the blue gogi's below may be an imitation - thats the thamsemead one - suspect! Or a different Mr Gogi

    Here's a night time shot of New Morlys in L. Junc. The original Morleys is so yesterday. New is where it's at.

    That would be really great if it came with the stench of burnt oil and fried chicken :D

    I have been inducted to this game. I had no idea and now a niche, chicken shop spotting, nerd-distraction has opened up to me. :facepalm: :rolleyes: :D

    bromley ...isn't as good as Lewisham.

    There's a Marleys on Brookmil Road (menu has the O changed to an A) and a Mowelys with a double M burger in Deptford and Catford.

    Morleys are the business. Did they start in Lewisham?
