17/2/17 - Updated with soft launch details
Hot on the heels of all the new places opening in Camden Market comes news that Bea Vo will be opening her next restaurant in that neck of the woods. Famous Flames will be her third spot, after Stax and Boondocks. As the name suggests, it's all about the flame grill and will be serving up flame grilled burgers and fried wings.
The new restaurant on Kentish Town Road, will have fifteen seats if you want to sit in, but they're largely expecting you to take out. On the burger front, Vo's burgers at Famous Flames will be thinner than at Stax and Boondocks and served in Martin’s famous Potato buns from America. Those are the same buns used by Shake Shack and are so great, we filled half our suitcase with them on a recent trip to NYC.
For wing fans there'll be four styles of deep fried wing buckets – Southern, Korean, Buffalo, Memphis BBQ and Filipino or you can get your chicken fix in the form of a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich, served with a cayenne butter sauce. Desserts sound simple but delicious - soft-serve cones dipped in chocolate or butterscotch glaze.
Famous Flames opens 25 February 2017 at 11 Kentish Town Road, NW1 8NH, opposite the entrance to Camden Town underground station. There will be a soft launch with 50% off food (eat-in and takeaway) on 25 & 26 February (no reservations). Keep up with their news on Twitter @thefamousflames
