You know the Maisen Katsu Sando, the glorious and thankfully ubiquitous katsu sandwich that you get all over Japan. Well, Belles Hot Chicken executive chef Morgan McGlone ate so many on his 30 trips to Japan he's using his American-style fried chicken shops to bring it to home shores. The limited edition sambo will be available as a part of Kyoto Protocol, a Japanese-inspired 12-day pop-up menu that hits all Belles Hot Chicken stores from Wednesday, March 20.

Maisen Katsu Sando is traditionally made with breaded pork cutlets, but here it's being made with Belles' famous fried chicken in a golden panko crumb and served with Japanese mayo, Tonkatsu Bull-Dog sauce, crisp shredded cabbage and served in a seedless bun.

To accompany the sandwich, Belles will be serving $12 Yuzu Spritz made with Heiwa Yuzusha and pet nat for that citrus, sake and wine trifecta. Garage Project has also brewed a Japanese-inspired pilsner, the Hatsukoi.

If you're down at Barangaroo there won't be any katsu on the menu, but you will be able to order togarashi spiced nuggets for $8 a pop to please your inner child.

The Kyoto Protocol menu is available at Belles Hot Chicken stores Darling Quarter, Tramsheds and Barangaroo from March 20 to March 31.
