Merivale launched The Chicken Shop in Sydney on 26 January.
Located in the small shopfront next to The Paddington, The Chicken Shop will serve take-away only rotisserie meats, salads and sandwiches by culinary heavyweight Ben Greeno.
In addition to poultry, The Chicken Shop will roast a selection of meats and seafood that change every night – ocean trout, pork belly, lamb rump, glazed ham and beef rump. The roast will be served alongside a selection of fresh salads including ‘cos lettuce with avocado, radish and pumpkin seeds’, ‘chickpeas, tomato, cucumber and feta’ and ‘green beans with hazelnuts and shallots’, and sizzling sides – fries, roasted carrots with sunflower seeds and potato gratin.
“I’ve actually wanted to do a sandwich place for a while,” Greeno said.
“We’re using bread from Brickfields which holds up really well – it doesn’t fall apart in your hands and is easy to eat”. Think ‘glazed leg ham with comte, Dijon mustard and pickle’, ‘hot chicken, jalapeno and pickled carrot’ or ‘fish fingers with crushed edamame, yuzu and togarashi’, a throwback to Greeno’s childhood in the UK.
Merivale’s first solely dedicated takeaway shop is the latest addition to its Paddington precinct. The Paddington opened in November 2015, serving Sydney’s finest rotisserie meats, fish and vegetables, alongside world-class cocktails.
