A BOURNEMOUTH chicken restaurant has been rated as one of the top 30 trending dishes in the UK by Deliveroo.

Chicken & Blues, located on Wimborne Road, has been rated as 27th on the top 30 UK dishes by Deliveroo’s annual roundup.

The Deliveroo 100 report highlights trending dishes form around the world.

Despite being spread across BCP, Chicken & Blues first opened as Chicken Shack in Boscombe in 2013.

The restaurant has since won national awards, as ‘best takeaway’ at The British Takeaway Awards and named the ‘best family restaurant’ at the Deliveroo UK Restaurant Awards.

After success at their sites, Chicken & Blues launched a food truck for public and private events in February this year.

Deliveroo vice president of regional growth, Jeff Wemyss, said: “From bananas to burritos, Poké to pizza, it’s always fun revealing our annual list of Deliveroo’s 100 trending dishes across the globe.

“Recent research shows us that people in the UK are becoming more adventurous with their food choices, with seven in ten (71%) saying they have tried new dishes and cuisines this year, which is evident from the variety of trending dishes in both the global and UK lists.

“We’re delighted to see customers sampling - and enjoying - the wealth of food on their doorsteps.”
