Mary’s is a great joint in Newtown, Sydney that we recently reviewed and loved. This review is of their CBD burger joint. Hollywood was on a business trip and found he was staying really close it and they had a chicken burger on the list! This burger is a beast and very messy, tasty and yummy. Go get it now

Boney is a remake of the joint Pony that has a new dish to be part of the Melbourne Fried Chicken scene. We loved the japaleno donuts. They were really cool. The chicken was good too, it was boneless a crispy fried concoction but couldve been a bit more spicy. The condiments of wasabi mayo and ginger around it were interesting too.

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

The Napier Hotel

Leave a comment

The Napier is one of our favorite pubs that we frequent for their great Kangaroo steaks. On a hot Melbourne day we ended up going there to show our friends around and noticed that the Napier Hotel has its own Melbourne Fried Chicken offering in the form of a southern fried chicken burger so we decided to make a review of it.

Hollywood really enjoyed the burger while The Chick thought it was flawed. What drew Hollywood was the amazing crunch and plethora of flavors associated with it. It was crunchy, hot, spicy, sweet and fresh. Each bite had a dominating sweet honey flavor or a hot and spicy chipotle mayo flavor that gave an amazing contrast.

On the other hand, The Chick didnt enjoy it as much as she thought the burger was a bit too bready and the extra thick coating of the chicken made the whole meal even breadier.

The Napier is a good joint that we love, we recommend you visit this Melbourne staple and let us know what you think of their chicken burger!

Le Bon Ton

Leave a comment

Hollywood and The Chick were hanging around with some good peeps on a sunny Melbourne day and after sinking a few beers down the crave for some crispy Melbourne Fried Chicken came about. We were in Collingwood and decided to knock off another contender that we heard much about recently, Le Bon Ton!

20141221_174521

Le Bon Ton is a great bar with a large outdoor area and boasts lots of good Southern pride meals including lots of smoked meats. We decided to go for a whopping order of Chicken Ribs (Crispy fried & tossed in Louisiana hot
sauce with chipotle ranch), Chili Cheese Fried (Traditional Texas style beef & bean chili with sharp cheddar sauce on crispy fries), Fried Chicken (Southern style buttermilk soaked tenders with cracked pepper white gravy), The Smoker’s Lot of pit smoked meats (A mix of brisket, pork, sausage and chicken), Onion Rings (Beer battered & jerk seasoned) & the Le Bon Ton pickles (a house mix of radish, gherkin, carrot, baby onion & jalapeno) along with many many beers.

All the food arrived at once and the overall verdict was that the chicken was very good however the dishes were on the smaller side. While the chicken was freshly cooked and properly spiced, the pieces were smaller and it seemed for our group of 5 the two orders of chicken we had left us craving for more.

The meats were very good too however the main start of the show for us were the onion rings which were completely wiped out.

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.
