Does anyone remember the days where eating out as a vegan or vegetarian meant you could only order a bowl of steamed greens with a glass of hot water and lemon?
Yep, it’s official, those days are way, waaaay behind us—and for that, we’re forever grateful. And get this, we’ve been let it on a lil’ secret from Belleville that will have vegetarian, vegan and lovers of all things non-meaty rejoicing.
While Belleville is most popularly known for their perfectly fried, gleaming golden chicken and their beloved Sunday Roasts, they’ve got a Vegan Chicken option which isn't listed on the menu. It's actually secretly a part of their Hook Me Up menu range. All you need to do is simply and politely make a request, and you'll be granted permission to the amazing dish as part of your order.
So let us explain. It’s basically a soy-flavoured, mock chicken product that’s dipped in a Korean spiced batter. It’s then coated in their secret house spice blend flour mix which contains three different kinds of flours to make it fantastically crispy. And just to spice things up, it’s served with coriander, chilli and ginger dipping sauce.
The more you know/You’re welcome.
When: 11am – 1am
