For one week only we’re celebrating the spiciest food in town. Yep, that’s right it’s only Wriggle Chilli Week! 

If you’re partial to a Habanero or three, you’re in for a real treat this week. We’ve got the best chefs in town cooking up a ‘hot hot hot’ selection of exclusive spicy specials; dishes to make your taste buds tingle and your heart rate jingle.


As well as getting yourself a tasty Chilli Week exclusive dish, you’ll also get a free packet of chilli seeds to grow at home. You'll receive your chilli seeds when collecting your Wriggle deal at the venue.

From dark chilli chocolate chai lattes to vegan Indian chilli burgers, we’ve got something to suit every palate on the app this week. If you, or your mates are more on the mild side of spice, not to worry - we’ve got a whole selection of very lightly spiced dishes also on offer, so there’s no excuse not to join the chilli week festivities.

Fun Chilli Fact: Did you know that spiciness isn’t actually a taste? The reason we sweat, have runny noses and feel like our mouths are burning when eating chilli is because of a chemical reaction that tricks our brains into thinking that are mouths are .. well… quite literally on fire! How crazy is that! So even though the spice isn’t actually burning you, the brain gets the same signals as if it were and tries to cool you down 😱

Moshimo are muscling in on the Chilli Week action with a curated pick of their well-loved gyoza dumplings and Poké bowls, guaranteed to heat things up nicely. Packed full of fresh red chillies, fiery ginger, and lashings of hot curry sauce, their Poké bowls offer a satisfying spice that'll leave you wanting more. Grab this Wriggle to get your mitts on any of their sticky gyoza dumplings (including pan-fried duck, and crispy fried leek) as well as one of their delicious Poké bowls.
