Published Nov 23, 2017Drake teamed up with celebrity chef Susur Lee to open Fring's a couple years ago, and he may have another hometown restaurant in the works, but foodies all over the world seem eager to toast the rapper with their own culinary expressions. Now, at long last, a Drake-themed pop-up restaurant is set to open in Scotland later this month.
Called A Wing and a Prayer, the temporary wing bar comes from the mind of creative director Barrington Reeves, and it's set to open as part of the Dockyard Social pop-up food event in Glasgow. It runs from November 30 through December 3.
In addition to sporting the motto "Wings that give you more life" and a logo featuring the 6 God's praying hands clutching a chicken wing, the signature item on the menu was inspired by Drake's VIEWS cut "Controlla." Those particular wings are flavoured with Caribbean pineapple and mango (but no "Passionfruit"), as well as a fiery hit of scotch bonnet pepper.
There are also plenty of other options (even vegan wings), but sadly the opportunity for a dish called "Hotline Wings" seems to have been missed.
Of course, Drake isn't the first rapper to inspire hip-hop-themed street food. Another stall at the upcoming Glaswegian market pays homage to Wu-Tang Clan with a pop-up named C.R.E.A.M., and Ghostface Killah himself made an appearance at a restaurant cleverly called Toastface Grillah in Perth, Australia, a few years back.
