BELLES HOT CHICKEN
It’s not surprising that chef Morgan McGlone’s take on Nashville-style hot chicken has already gained a cult following across Sydney and Melbourne.
The good news is his latest store, in our own Darling Square, continues to serve up its winning combo of fiery hot chicken and natural wine.
If you’re not familiar with Belles (we’re not sure where you’ve been hiding!) it’s time to spice up your life! Belles Hot Chicken is iconic. It’s got that signature crunch when you bite into the most succulent meat. From tenders, wings or drumsticks, Belles got the lot!
How does Belles turn up the heat? They start slow with Southern, then mix it up with Medium. When you’re ready for it, they hit you with Hot, then Really Hot, then Really F**kin Hot! What’s after that? What could possibly be after that? Stay tuned...
So what's your flavour profile?
A. I’m not a huge fan of spice! (sorry, not sorry)
B. A sprinkling of spice is always nice.
C. I want my mouth to explode with the spicy flavours of Belles!!
If you’re person A, we hear ya! The lightly seasoned ‘Southern’ flavours are sure to satisfy as well as everyone’s favourite sides - like mac ‘n’ cheese, or Old Bay crinkle cut fries. Person B? We recommend Medium or Hot (or even Really Hot if you think you can handle the heat). Think you’re person C? Belles is here to fulfil your burning desires, from Really Hot to the tear-jerking ‘Sex Panther' (we’re not kidding, that’s what it’s called) you’re sure to set your taste buds alight! Be warned though, your mouth may become a ring of fire, so you’ll probably need something to wash it all down with.
You mentioned something about wine? Yes, yes we did. Chef Morgan and partner in crime, Miranda teamed together to bring natural wine to Belles. And this dynamic duo are really into their wine, in particular, they’re drunk in love with natural wine - made the way our ancestors made it. This au-naturel beverage is free from chemicals and mass machinery, so it’s a better option than the more processed wines. You’re welcome.
So wine-not get your drinking buddies together and head on down to Belles for delicious wines and hot chicken times? Even better, you can round up a large group or host a Belles birthday bash with their function spaces and catering packages so you can dip into some tongue tingling tenders in a big way!
