Hammersmith Broadway’s newest restaurant Popeyes opens this Monday, 29 January, with a gala launch offering music from brass band Brass Funkeys and a chance to win free food and prizes.

Popeyes was founded in New Orleans in 1972 with one small restaurant serving Louisiana style chicken and now has branches across America as well as ten across London.

Its signature dish is the Chicken Sandwich, described as 100% fresh breaded chicken that’s marinated for 12 hours in a blend of Louisiana herbs & spices. The menu also includes wraps, tenders, wings and Popeyes’ Original Biscuits and Cajun Gravy, as well as Whipz, Shakes, special meals for kids and breakfast rolls with hash brown potatoes on the side. There are also red bean sandwiches for veggies.

Popeyes’ doors open from 11am today, joining over 25 cafes and restaurants serving up food and drink within Hammersmith Broadway shopping centre.
