This September sees the return of Dante Fried Chicken run by the man himself. Dante.

Dante is well known for both his Ride or Fry food truck which travels around the states and  his web show which kick started the likes of artists such as Santigold, Mos Def and Coco Rosie.

Dante also provided over 2000 hungry carnival goers chicken for Red Bull at Notting Hill Carnival a couple of years ago.

Now the pop up Dante Chicken taco shack comes to us at 18 Hewett Street. The shack is open from the 2nd-4th September and will be serving some of Dantes most well known dishes like Sock-It-To-Me Friend Chicken Tacos and Blueberry Guiness Smoked Brisket.

On Sunday tamales will be added to the menu before Dante shuts up shop and heads to Silverlake to open the LA-shack.

As far as pop-ups go (and lets face it, there's a lot happening at the moment) this one actually sounds pretty damn delicious.
