It’s no secret that Two Chefs and a Table and Big Lou’s Butcher Shop love Southern and Soul Food and they’ve continuously looked for ways to put more BBQ and Southern goodness on their menu. This March, for the first time, there’s going to be full Southern Food takeover of their Railtown Bistro during the pop-up Two Chefs Chicken Shack from March 6-8.
During the Two Chefs Chicken Shack, their famous fried chicken will be served three ways: Original, Hot and Korean. While Original has become one of Vancouver’s most-loved fried chicken recipes, the Hot and Korean are brand new. The Hot recipe is Inspired the legendary Prince’s Fried Chicken Shack in Nashville, home of Tennessee Hot Fried Chicken, while Korean Fried Chicken will be a variation on Big Lou’s popular Bulgogi spice mix, adding some of the Asian BBQ flavours which now inspire modern Southern cuisine.
The menu will match up the chicken with classic Southern sides like coleslaw, mac & cheese, beans and potato wedges, all done Two Chefs’ style. And since eating fried chicken is a thirsty business, Two Chefs Chicken Shack will also be serving up bourbon cocktails and a special craft beer list to quench the thirst–or cool the heat for those who choose to test themselves against the Hot Chicken.
True to Southern tradition, all the chicken will be skillet fried and served up three ways: whole, half or Chicken and Waffles. The birds will be exclusively sourced from Maple Hills Farm who raise some of best medication and antibiotic-free around just down the road in Abbotsford, B.C.
“We’ve been scheming on a Fried Chicken Shack pop-up restaurant for a while,” said Karl Gregg. “When the idea finally came to us to just do it as a pop-up in our original Railtown Bistro, we decided to jump at it. We love Southern Food and are looking forward going all Southern.”
The Two Chefs Chicken Shack will pop up for three days only from Wednesday, March 6 to Friday, March 8. The Fried Chicken menu will be available for lunch and dinner service, eat-in and take out.
