Chicken Shack pop-up returns to Vancouver for four days only


The popular soul food pop-up Chicken Shack is coming back for four days in March after a two year absence from Vancouver.

In 2013, the teams at Two Chefs and a Table and Big Lou’s Butcher Shop got together to put on their Chicken Shack pop-up, which featured their buttermilk fried chicken and Southern comfort food sides.

Chicken Shack will be back March 5 through 8 in East Vancouver at 337 East Hastings, and for this cash-only temporary restaurant will have their buttermilk chicken in addition to a Korean BBQ chicken.

The Korean BBQ fried chicken is a variation on Big Lou’s Butcher Shop’s popular Bulgogi marinade. All the Chicken Shack chicken is unmedicated and locally-sourced, and is brined at least 12 hours then skillet fried. There will also be the tasty sides, and even a Southern Spiked Sweet Tea on the menu.
