Belles hot chicken takes over Longroom 1

The temperature is set to rise this week as Belles Hot ChickenLongroom and Estrella Damm team up for another iconic kitchen takeover. Bringing together delicious Southern fried chicken, icy cold lager and great music, Longroom will be the place to be from Wednesday 6th February to Sunday 10th February.

Coming in hot off the back of his August takeover, Belles Hot Chicken creator Morgan McGlone is crediting the success of the last event for his speedy return. “Our last pop-up was incredible. Kiwi’s love fried chicken and they can really handle the heat too – which is good considering we’re bringing a hot-wings challenge this time round.”

Belles Hot Chicken, Longroom and Estrella Damm have upped the ante for February’s Takeover with a ‘Really F**king Hot, Wings Challenge’. The competition will run across the five day pop up, with daily heats of 10 contestants. The winner will be the person to devour six ‘Really F**king Hot’ wings in the fastest time. Contestants will receive a limited-edition Belles Hot Chicken x Longroom Competition T-Shirt, and the chance to win epic prizes.

A full Belles Hot Chicken lunch and dinner menu will run at Longroom from 12.00pm, with a special late night menu, serving up classic Belles dishes, like the famous wings at five different temperatures, Southern, Medium, Hot, Really Hot, and Really F**king Hot, The Belles Chicken Sandwich and delicious southern American sides, like the creamy Mac and Cheese and a fresh crunchy coleslaw.

Longroom co-owners Andrew Roberts & Richard Bagnall can’t wait for Belles to return “we want people to associate Longroom with great food and awesome events, and the Belles Hot Chicken Takeover is the perfect example of this.”

McGlone perfected his fried chicken working as head chef at Husk in Nashville. His chicken has an intense signature crunch which coats the most succulent meat, and customers can pick from tenders, wings or drumsticks and then choose how their chicken is seasoned.

Longroom is a Ponsonby institution. You’ll find the space packed across the weekends, with the courtyard playing host to Longshot café guests during the day and then transforming to a pumping bar and bistro in the evening.
