Belles Hot Chicken

For real southern chicken
When you step into Belles Hot Chicken, it feels as if you are stepping into an American dinner. Belles is decked out with bright red booths along the left side and a huge bar with counter seating on the right side. The American Diner theme extends to the food menu, where items like hot chicken, mac and cheese, roasted yam salad and three bean salad are present on the menu. This theme, however, isn't surprising considering that Morgan fell in love with Hot Chicken on a trip to Nashville. So much so, that he returned to Australia and started up Belles Hot Chicken.



So, of course, I had to try out this chicken on my visit, but it's not as simple as just picking chicken; you also decide whether you want tenders, wings or breasts and then what level of heat you would like and a sauce to go with it. However, for me, the hardest decision wasn't what type of chicken but deciding what sides to get with the chicken and in the end, we settled on waffles as well as mac and cheese for sides.

I was glad that we picked the sides that we did as the waffles were so light and fluffy and perfectly complemented the crunchy and juicy chicken. While the mac and cheese tasted deliciously cheesy and was the perfect addition to the hot chicken! Hot chicken that was juicy as well as tender and covered in a light spicy crusting.

Overall, Belles Hot Chicken is a great place for hot southern chicken and I would definitely come back for seconds!
