You Can Order A Los Pollos Hermanos Takeaway In The UK

Breaking Bad fans can now satisfy their fast-food cravings by visiting a takeaway named after the show's iconic fried chicken shop, Los Pollos Hermanos.

The originally-fictional restaurant became a key part of Breaking Bad's plot, providing a convincing front for Gus Fring's meth manufacturing and distribution operation.

Fring, a fan-favourite throughout the series, would use the business' trucks to smuggle drugs across the Mexico-United States border, while the restaurant's chicken farm was used as a shipment centre for the incoming drugs.

Now, a takeaway located on East India Dock Road in London, has appeared on Uber Eats under the familiar Los Pollos branding.

Obviously, you'll need to visit the shop yourself to try it out, unless you happen to live within its delivery radius.

But still, anyone ordering can choose from the usual takeaway classics - pizzas, burgers, kebabs - along with a selection of meal deals, which feature 'Los Pollos Hermanos original recipe chicken', something which is 'loved worldwide' according to the menu.

Price-wise, a chicken fillet burger meal will set you back £6.59 and is described as: "Succulent 100% all time favourite premium chicken fillet burger, served with lettuce and a modicum of mayonnaise in a soft sesame seeded bun. 2pc spicy wings, fries & can drink."

The more adventurous can opt for the £5.49 Naga wings meal: "Can you handle the heat? Our signature Naga wings served with curry sauce. Naga is a hot Southeast Asian chilli, which can be made into a pickle. This is coated on the chicken wings adding flavour and extreme heat."

This is by no means the first time the chicken joint has popped up in the real world, however.

In 2017, a series of official Los Pollos Hermanos pop-up locations appeared across the United States. Netflix also ran temporary spots in Australia and Italy to celebrate the show.

Giancarlo Esposito, the actor who played Fring in the show, has previously pitched a spin-off series which would take place in the Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul universe and explore his character's back story.

Speaking to Esquire last December, he said: "I have this whole storyline in the back of my head that he came from political royalty.

"I feel like Gus came from the world of order. And that his order came. He was a military man. Out of the military, he gained the ability to observe.

"You can't lead unless you can follow. [...] In my brain, he was high up in a military government. He could have stayed there and ran the country. It was handed to him.

"But he chose a different path to be his own man and to find his own power, regardless of what he was handed. This is what he chose."
