El Jannah has earned cult status for its Lebanese-style charcoal chicken and finger-lickin'-good garlic sauce, but for inner-city folk, it's never been all that easy to get your mitts on. Sure, the legendary chicken joint has an impressive six outlets under its belt, but — if you've lived east, north or south — you've had to trek out west to get to any of them. Until now.

The inner west will finally have all of that chook goodness right at its fingertips, after the company announced it's opening an El Jannah store in the heart of Newtown. Which means Sydney's 'chicken curtain' may need some urgent adjustments.

Details are still vague, but El Jannah has confirmed the rumours and revealed a glimpse instead the new store, saying: "The secret is out! We are so excited to announce that our next El Jannah store will be located in Newtown! Stay tuned for more!" Over one thousand excited Sydneysiders have already commented on the Facebook post.

The store, which will called El Jannah Express, is slated to open at 156–158 King Street, across the road from cocktail bar Corridor and The Marlborough Hotel, sometime in the next three–six weeks. We'll update you when we know more.

El Jannah has won plenty of fans for its offering of charcoal chicken matched with that famed garlic sauce, along with hot meat-stuffed rolls, grab-and-go meal packs, burgers, salads and Middle Eastern skewers. Following stores in Blacktown, Campbelltown, Punchbowl, Granville, Kogarah and Penrith, this Newtown outpost will be the group's first 'express' offering. No word yet on exactly what that means, but as long as there's some of that chicken involved, we're on board.

El Jannah Express is slated to open at 156–158 King Street, Newtown sometime in October or early November.
