Chicken Shack logoBistro set for a three-day bonanza of Southern food and drinks

It’s no secret that Two Chefs and a Table and Big Lou’s Butcher Shop love Southern and Soul Food, and we’re always looking for ways to put more BBQ and Southern goodness on our menu. This March, we’re excited to announce a  Southern Food takeover of our Railtown Bistro for the Two Chefs Chicken Shack from March 6th-8th.

During the Two Chefs Chicken Shack, we’re going to take our famous fried chicken and serve it three ways: Original, Hot and Korean. The Hot recipe was inspired by a visit to the legendary Prince’s Fried Chicken Shack in Nashville, home of Tennessee Hot Fried Chicken. The Korean Fried Chicken will be a variation on Big Lou’s popular Bulgogi spice mix to bring a little Asian BBQ flavour to the menu.

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, BC.

The Two Chefs Chicken Shack will pop up for three days only from Wednesday March 6th to Friday March 8th. The Fried Chicken menu will be available for lunch and dinner service, eat-in and take out.

Two Chefs and a Table can is at 305 Alexander Street in Railtown and at www.twochefsandatable.com on the Internet.
