Manchester restaurant serves pancake ‘kebabs’ on pancake day

Manchester’s go-to fried chicken restaurant, Kongs Chicken Shop, has strayed from tradition with the launch of its brand new menu.

Kong’s, the very place that sent the city into a frenzy with its Sunday fried chicken roast last year, sprang from the famous Northside ramen spot, CBRB, where it operated on a pick-and-order basis. delivery.

However, thanks to its success Kong’s was quick to expand and during its short life held residencies at a number of downtown venues such as Foundation Coffee on Portland Street, Northern Monk Refectory , The Head of Steam in Didsbury Village and, more recently, Clubhouse in Spinningfields.

But in perhaps their biggest move yet, the fried chicken connoisseurs launched their own American-style restaurant in a late-night arcade and Dog Bowl bowling bar earlier this year.

And now that they’ve settled into their new home, Kong’s has unveiled a brand new menu, featuring its signature fried chicken and something a little different too.

Fans of the restaurant will recognize their trademark signature chicken sandwich, which comes with fried chicken leg, crispy chicken skin, thick burger sauce, iceberg lettuce, pickles and sriracha salad, all sandwiched in a toasted seed brioche bun.

For the first time, Kong’s offers its own vision of Caribbean cuisine with the new jerk chicken sandwich – the chicken is marinated in a homemade jerk sauce and served with tangy mango and pineapple salsa, coleslaw and iceberg lettuce. It is also available in vegan form and is just as good.

Another novelty on the menu, the Panang Curry Chicken Sandwich and the Buffalo Chicken Poutineconsisting of a fried chicken leg in buffalo sauce with mozzarella, fries, sauce, blue cheese sauce, crumbled cheese, chives and chili.

Kong’s has also departed from tradition with some of its new dishes, including the Entrecôte Steak and Fries, which is cooked rare and topped with chimichurri and watercress, with the option of adding king prawns for £5 and a fried egg and grilled pineapple ring for £1.

And it’s worth mentioning that the restaurant doesn’t mess with sides; their fried chicken and steak can be accompanied by Kong salad, onion rings, Buffalo Blue Cheese Fries and a range of BBQ chicken wings and tenders.

Kong’s at Dog Bowl is open daily from noon and is the perfect accompaniment to bowling or having fun in the arcade.
