Easey’s

Hollywood and the boys have been trying to hit up Easey’s for a while now. They finally managed to fit in and to their surprise they had Melbourne Fried Chicken on the menu. Heres some photos of what went down

Verdict: Alright so Easey’s is a burger joint more than fried chicken. The burgers were good. The chicken portion was small (3 pieces which kinda makes it more of a side) however the chicken was really good and spiced right. The mac-n-cheese on the other hand was really heavily cheesy

Osaka Ya

One thing we forgot to mention is WE LOVE RAMEN. We’ve actually been considering starting a ramen blog and during our last visit to Japan Hollywood had a ramen a day for the entire length of our stay.

We were excited to find out a new ramen joint opened close by and we checked it out for a good slurpiliciousness bowl and ofcourse being true to Japanese cuisine there was Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken). Check out the photos

The Karaage was good, hot juicy and freshly cooked. It was accompanied with a kewpie mayo which add a twist to it. The ramen on the other hand was average, it was actually not hot, bummer!

SAM SAM

Yes, we came back for Sam Sam. As usual, it was true to its Korean fried chicken colors. Good fried chicken below:

Sam Sam is a good Korean fried chicken contender that we still recommend going to.

The boys couldn’t stop raving about Sam Sam and how Hollywood was missing out on the best Korean Melbourne Fried Chicken ever. This blog is a result of massive FOMO

20151127_131908

20151127_133340

We settled in the downstairs area and got straight into business; beers and loads of fried chicken. We got half boneless in the original flavor and half boneless in the soy and garlic flavor in addition to the wings in the hot and spicy sauce

20151127_134404

The wings arrived first and were the typical Korean style where they are fried then doused in the sauce. They had the right level of heat and were good. Cooked well, hot and steamy. The accompanying coleslaw was also a delight.

20151127_134851

The remainder of our order arrived and it was the right size: BIG! The original style was good, had a good crunch to it while the soy and garlic had good tasty flavors. Overall the chicken was all fresh, juicy and tender. The order was also accompanied by the delicious slaw and pickles.

Overall Sam Sam is a really good Korean Fried Chicken that is in the heart of Swanston St. It is also has a cool vibe to it that is definitely worth checking out

It was a long day of travel for Hollywood and on the way home yet another article was out listing more of the best Melbourne Fried Chicken and to Hollywood’s surprise there was a new entry really close to home, Leonard’s House of Love

20151124_184427

This was a quick hit and run after a long day at work. This place had a really cool chilled out set up and seemed like a great spot to hang with some friends and kick a few drink backs with some good ol crispy cluckers. Hollywood’s order was The Hot and Glazed Chicken Tenders with Pickles & Chipotle Mayo.

The order consisted of 3 big pieces of tenders and let us tell you that this chicken was truly amazing, hot steamy freshly cooked and spiced right. The mix with the pickles and chipotle mayo only made it even better.

Dude Food Man – Repeat

Leave a comment

We were at the Melbourne Zoo and ready for a hearty meal and so a suggestion was brought up that made Hollywood feel really good, The Dude Food Man. It’s one of those places that advertises amazing burgers but is a bit out of the way for the Melbourne Fried Chicken scene to venture out to, but on this specific day we did!

20151122_140643

20151122_140705

There were 3 of us so we decided on the dude burger, the southern fried chicken burger and the mushroom burger along with a side of mac and cheese and the fries

20151122_143017

20151122_143032

The Chick has an issue with fried mac n cheese in that she feels it usually dries out the sauce. These ones were OK, better than the usual ones but the creaminess factor was not up to the chick’s standards.

20151122_143150

20151122_143302

The dude burger was good too, however it wasn’t amazing but nonetheless really good to have

20151122_143035

The fried chicken burger on the other hand was really good, we enjoyed that one the best out of all the 3 burgers were ordered

The Dude Food Man has some good burgers to offer however our take on it is it’s more of an “if you’re in the area” kinda joint

Ghost Kitchen – At Asian Noodle Night Markets

Leave a comment

 

Hollywood was meeting a few friends at the Asian Noodle Night Markets at passed by a familiar smell, thats right Melbourne Fried Chicken smell being served up by Ghost Kitchen.

20151118_175523

The Taiwanese burger and an order of the salt n pepper fried chicken were ordered for a quick smash bash. The chicken comes with an option of adding hot chili sauce, ofcourse we went for that.

20151118_180211

20151118_180045

20151118_175644

The burger was really good, fresh and juicy

20151118_180116

20151118_180649

The chicken was your average fried up food truck Taiwanese style chicken, was very spicy with the sauce which was a good addition. The salt n pepper flavors were also very prominent. The chicken itself was freshly cooked however it was average over all.

20151118_175537

20151118_175553

There many options at the night market, Ghost Kitchen is a good option but we feel there more treasures to be found there

Rice Queen

Rice Queen has been on The Chicken Scenes list of Melbourne Fried Chicken for a long time now. As Hollywood and The Chick were in Fitzroy lookng for a good Asian food option, they stumbled on Rice Queen and decided that it was just the right time to check it out.

We ordered the bucket of Korean Fried Chicken, the fried rice, Penang Kway Teow and some Kimchi as a side

20151003_213002

20151003_213030

The chicken was surprisingly really good. It was pieces of ribs that were spiced rightly and had a little bit of heat which gave a great flavor. The accompanying sauce was a bit on the sweeter side which gave a really good contrast when needed.

20151003_213633

20151003_213107

The other king of the rice queen was the fried rice. This was a great fried rice dish with lots of flavors from prawns, pork and chillis!

Rice Queen is a great Asian fusion place with a worthy fried chicken dish that we definitely recommend experiencing.

F.A.T. (Fried and Tasty)

Leave a comment

Hollywood and The Chick were having a great spring day in the northern suburbs and decided since they were in the neighborhood that they might as well tick off Fried and Tasty which has recently been raved about as a huge Melbourne Fried Chicken must do. 20150919_165927

20150919_170343

20150919_170519

The menu was full of all kinds of fried chooks; pieces, tenders, wings and many burgers. We settled on the tenders and spicy chicken pieces along with poutine and chop salad

This place had tons of character and such a great vibe. Any Biggie art layered with fried chicken is a winner in Hollywood’s books

20150919_170544

20150919_171656

The chicken pieces were all freshly fried and rightly spiced and tasted really good. Our only minor beef with the chicken was it was a little bit dry. The poutine was really good too, cheesy enough to make you feel guilty, just in a good way!
