It shouldn’t work, but it really does

In a truly indulgent move, the team here has combined their signature fried chicken tenders (which come fried in a golden cornflake crumb) with two generous scoops of clotted cream ice cream from dessert pros Rogue Ice Cream.

The chicken is treated in honey and buffalo sauce, plonked in a brioche bun, then finished off with the sweet and silky ice cream scoops to create the ultimate cheat day burger. It’s called the Vanilla Thrilla, and comes served with skin-on fries and buffalo sauce on the side.

The burger is created in collaboration with Mancunian ice cream makers Rogue Ice Cream, award-winning artisans who use all-natural ingredients have 8 Great Taste Gold Stars to their name.

Yard & Coop first opened in Leeds in 2019 and have since made quite an impression on us with their huge range of delicious fried chicken dishes.
