Hold on to your napkins, Melbourne. Things are about to get greasy. The legends at Belleville have just launched a new initiative—Southern Fried Sundays.
Basically, it’s an excuse to eat buttermilk fried chicken, waffles, maple syrup and ranch dressing before midday. Like you needed an excuse for that...
The program kicks off as of this Sunday 24 September, and will be running until Melbourne gets sick of brined, crispy-fried chicken (so, pretty much until a comet hits the earth and all life is extinguished).
The main event is the buttermilk fried chook, served with either bacon and Jack cheddar waffles, or jalapeno cornbread waffles, a healthy dollop of maple syrup, and a basting brush for you to paint on your own sauce.
If you want go all out, Bellville are offering the Southern Style Spread, which includes chicken skin garlic butter bread (don’t even know what that is, but holy hell), roast spuds, leak and ham hock greens, two types of waffles, fried chicken and a bunch of dips.
Whack on Southern Comfort cocktails and Bellville’s signature pepperberry Bloody Mary, and you’ve got a meal to make the Colonel smile. BYO stretchy pants. No-one’s leaving hungry from this thing.
