Flock to it: There's a chicken happy hour in Auckland

by Kate Richards / 04 October, 2017
It’s all about chicken at these two food events: Orphans Kitchen's new happy hour features honey and horopito-glazed chicken wings and $5 beers, and Australian cult chicken purveyor Belle’s Hot Chicken takes over Culprit.

Join the flock

Belle’s Hot Chicken takes over Culprit

They’re back at it for a second round: Culprit is teaming up with Morgan McGlone and Darryl Grey of Aussie chicken purveyor Belle’s Hot Chicken, as well as Dan Gillett of Wine Diamonds, for a two-day fried chicken feast. Get your mitts on juicy, pickle-laden fried chicken sandwiches ($14 a pop), KFC-style buckets of chicken (plus sides), and funky, unfined wines. McGlone and Grey, who proudly rep Bostock’s Organic Hawke’s Bay chicken, will also be popping up at Shepherd Restaurant in Wellington on Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 October. Be warned – there will be queues.

7 & 8 October, 12 Wyndham St, walk-ins only, 12pm onwards

Happy hour drinks, plus chicken

Get clucky at Orphans Kitchen

Beer and chicken are the best of friends and you’ll find them together at Orphans Kitchen’s newest happy hour where a share-size, half kilo of organic, honey and horopito-glazed wings is only $10 and beers are a fiver each. But, in true Tom Hishon style, this is also a chance to applaud a New Zealand producer by demonstrating that organic chicken – he’s using Bostock’s – reigns supreme. It’s true that happy hens are the tastiest to eat, but if you don’t believe us, go find out for yourself.

118 Ponsonby Road, Tuesday–Saturday, 5-6pm
