The well-known Super Nash Brothers have brought their original recipe, craft-style Nashville Hot Chicken to Willoughby Road – along with the ‘World’s Hottest Sando’ which requires a signed waiver to eat it!
“Why did the chicken cross Willoughby Road? To cover itself in Super Nash seasoning of course.” So joke the Super Nash Brothers who actually take their chicken very seriously – and know a thing or two about how to serve it. Having already made a name for themselves with two other stores, it will now be Willoughby locals flocking to the fried chicken restaurant’s latest instalment which has just opened on Willoughby Rd.
Super Nash Brothers is a relative spring chook on the fast food restaurant scene. The Willoughby venue is the third bricks and mortar store in just 18 months for the Nashville-style hot chicken venture, and the second for the North Shore. The brand launched in Waitara in 2020, and quickly followed up with a Waterloo branch last year, along with a food truck to boot. The Willoughby store will form the new centre of operations with an in-house commissary and test kitchen.
Core menu item the signature Super Nash Sando is the popular choice for its sweet-spicy balance, which is achieved “by the juicy Super Nash seasoned thigh, pickles, ranch, and shredded lettuce, all sandwiched between a milk bun”.
Catering to a range of sensibilities, the Sando is also offered Southern-fried, or for those brave enough (and willing to sign a waiver), there’s the World’s Hottest Sando. Ensure your heart is in good health for this one! It’s made with Carolina Reapers – the hottest chilli pepper in the world which, for the hot spice initiated, measure over 2m Scoville heat units!
Other well-known favourite menu items will be available, including thighs, tenders and mozza sticks. However, Willoughby customers will be the first to experience an expanded Super Nash Brothers menu. New additions will include a ‘Wrapped Nash’, consisting of Super Nash tenders in a wrap with creamy slaw and pickles, as well as a range of salads and a new dessert.
For those who appreciate a side of arcade games with their sandos (or salads), the Willoughby venue will not disappoint. The Waterloo branch boasts two linked original Bandai Namco Mario Kart Arcade machines where customers can enjoy a complimentary kart session. However, with a different floor plan and an exclusively take-away setup, Willoughby customers will be able to play over 150 arcade games while they wait.
Super Nash Brothers has been swift to establish connections within the local community too, securing a year-long sponsorship of the Chatswood Rangers Sports Club. Founder Ross Kemp, a Willoughby local himself, is looking forward to the partnership which will support over 1100 local soccer and netball players.
“We’re excited to partner with community sports clubs like the Rangers with such a deep legacy in Willoughby City Council,” he says. We’re guessing Super Nash Brothers will become a favourite post-game refuelling venue as well.
