Korean Fried Chicken Truck

Leave a comment

It was a great spring day which meant all the clucking Melbourne Fried Chicken trucks were out and about and Hollywood and The Chick (& Co) were starving for some good golden crispy chooks

We stumbled up the Korean Fried Chicken Truck in Alma Park in St Kilda East and decided to give it a go. We ordered a serve of the fried chicken pieces which came with a spicy mayo and hot sauce, seaweed that was all resting on a bed of slaw.

The chicken pieces were all wings and drumettes. They were all juicy and fresh and the accompanying sauces added lots of flavor which helped the chicken out in the spice department. For some reason this place reminded us of Japanese style chicken (Karaage), maybe because of the seaweed?

Cookie is a favorite for the chicken scene is a must go to place for their amazing Asian fusion cuisine. However their 5 spice fried chicken wasnt a big hit for our beloved Melbourne Fried Chicken as we found it very dry to our tasting. However we highly recommend going to Cookie and getting their amazing drunken noodles and their fresh crispy spicy salads

Gami with the Boys

Leave a comment

Hollywood and the boys had a big night of drinking and were feeling the need for some crispy Melbourne Fried Chicken. Gami was the choice for the night. It was a long messy night of eating. Too much food and beer was ordered but we were up to the challenge.20141212_203510_000

The order consisted of one order of wings, one full chicken half/half for garlic and spicy sauces, the stir fried chicken with cheese and of course some good Hite beer.

20141212_213639While the chicken and cheese dish wasnt all that impressive, Gami still remains a strong contender for Korean style fried chicken and is always a fun relaxed place to go especially if you are in the city.

Night Noodle Market Fails to Impress

Leave a comment

Melbourne always has some food event on and since this is Good Food Month it is even more true. The sun is out and so are the red lanterns marking the Night Noodle Markets. This is the second year and they learned a lot of lessons from last year in terms of layout and seating. Sadly it was not the best place to find Melbourne Fried Chicken.

Lucky Cat welcomes you!

Hollywood and The Chick tried two places, one of which was severely lacking, the other was acceptable for fair food.

A squeeze of lemon and a side of mayo for this Chicken Karage just didn't make up for the lack of flavor in the chicken morsels themselves.

So bad we had to bin it in hopes of finding something better.

Gogi offered a second chance. This time, Korean Fried Chicken.

KassKass has been on the chicken scene’s list ever since day one right up there with Gami. Hollywood and The Chick were out for drinks in the city and after a few beers here and there they decided it was time for some yummy Korean style Melbourne Fried Chicken.

20141107_203405

We ended up getting the Okonomiyaki (a favorite of The Chick’s) and the half and half boneless chicken of the original and hot and spicy chicken with two tap beers to drink. We were warned that the spicy chicken is very hot, but we thought they just didnt know us that well so we let it pass.

The chicken was authentic Korean style chicken. it was small size pieces cooked fresh. The spicy pieces werent that spicy. We enjoyed the chicken and the okonomiyaki was different than the authentic type we had in Japan but was pleasurable nonetheless.

KassKass is a cool Korean place if you are craving some Korean style fried chicken and you are in that side of town

Kong

Kong is Chin Chin’s cousin brought by the same group and boasting many rich Korean, Japanese and American flavors. Hollywood was happy to find out that Kong had Melbourne Fried Chicken offerings in the form of fried chicken wings.

20141004_135555

Kong has both a takeaway and a more elaborate dine in menu. Hollywood opted for the takeaway option and ordered the Korean fried wings with honey, garlic and sesame alongside the famous kimchi and pulled BBQ pork bun.

Kong’s Korean fried chicken wings are fresh and have a great sweet and savory flavor with a hint of garlic that is truly amazing. The other dishes are also very fresh and tasty.

Hollywood’s Rating (for the fried wings): 8/10 Clucks
