I love fried chicken. And by love I mean LOVE. When I heard about the new place opening in urban space called Delaney’s I needed to go and when better to go then for breakfast on my first day back in NYC.

I stepped up and ordered their Fried chicken sandwich, I watched as they put two heavily fried chicken pieces on a bun with mayo, hot sauce and pickles. I was a big fan of the flavor and the layers of the sandwich and their chicken was the juiciest I’ve had in a long time.

However, the sandwich was soggy and very heavy, I felt like I was eating a sandwich dipped in oil. I wasn’t a fan of their coating either, not as crispy as it should’ve been, nor did it stay on the chicken.

A few of the groomsparty had a post wedding breakfast in the morning, now I wasn’t sure if I was drunk, hungover, tired or just plain hungry, but I got to the Mahia st kitchen and literally ordered almost everything.

I wasn’t feeling too well when I first arrived, so I started with a bloody Mary. Having never had one before I was deligtfully surprised at the amount I enjoyed it.

Not feeling any better I then went with a long black, along with $75 worth of breakfast. I ordered the sourdough toast with avocado and tomato salsa, the baked eggs, the texas pork ribs, a side of black pudding, a side of bacon and a side of potato croquettes.

This was by far one of the most ridiculous breakfasts I’ve ever had but it was revelatory.

The black pudding, house made, was delicious.

The bacon was cooked really well with that slight hint of the smoked flavor that I decided would go well sandwiched with the Sourdough, avocado and tomato salsa, then went for the baked eggs served with Turkish bread to mop up the delicious tomato and spice sauce.

Finally the ribs, I saved the best for last, and let me tell you they were divine better than most ribs I’ve had recently. The only let down after all of that was the croquettes. They were plain and okay.

Mahia st kitchen is leading the way in Napier in terms of quality ingredients and well executed dishes. If I’m ever there again I know exactly where I’d be going for breakfast.
