They couldn't stay away could they? Melbourne's cult southern-style fried chicken joint, specialising in "really fucking hot" chicken, Belle's Hot Chicken, popped up in Sydney at Harpoon Harry, Bondi Icebergs, then back to Harpoon Harry with Bondi Icebergs. Now, they're opening a nine-month-long pop-up at Barangaroo, opening Wednesday, November 25.

If you yet haven't experienced Belle's Nashville-style hot chicken, or you've wolfed it down at a previous pop-up, this time you won't have to squeeze your chickening into a couple of hours. The nine-month residency will see BHC pop up at the south end of Barangaroo's lifestyle hub, Wulugul Pop Up, alongside a bunch of casual eateries. They'll be showcasing a smaller version of their Fitzroy menu to Sydneysiders, featuring of course, dat hot chicken, alongside housemade lemonade, iced teas, kombucha and natural wine.

"After witnessing an overwhelming positive response since opening Belle's in Melbourne, and giving Sydneysiders a taste with the small pop ups over the last year, we knew it was only fair to bring some of the fried chicken goodness up to Sydney permanently, and the Barangaroo precinct felt like the perfect location," says BHC founder Morgan McGlone.

The brainchild of renowned Australian chef and former Nashville resident McGlone, Belle's has been combining spicy, spicy fried chicken with cool, cool natural wine and a bunch of hip hop since opening on Gertrude Street. They've since opened their own award-winning wine bar next door, Bar Clarine, because they know what they like, and a second Melbourne store. All hail BHC.

Belle's Hot Chicken pop-up will be open seven days a week, eat in and takeaway. Mondays to Thursdays, 11am to 10pm; Fridays and Saturdays, 11am to 11pm; and Sundays, 11am to 6pm.
