Our friends mentioned to us that they have a Melbourne Fried Chicken burger that is worth reviewing at North Carlton Canteen (NCC) so Hollywood, the Chick and Co decided to head up there for a good Sunday brunch
NCC’s menu has a wide variety of cafe style dishes and boasts quite a range of burgers however Hollywood had his focus set on the Southern Fried Chicken burger in a brioche that is made of NCC’s special blend of herbs and spices rubbed chicken, house slaw, melting cheese, spicy tomato aioli and hand cut chips
The fried chicken burger was huge and boasted many spices. It was definitely a generous portioned burger and it was a bit too hot to handle for The Chick however that didnt stop Hollywood from devouring it.
The chicken patty was crispy and heavly spiced with all kinds of flavors which did make the chicken seem overpowering to the rest of the mix. Although the burger was juicy the cheese and aioli flavors were shadowed by the steaming hot chicken. The chicken did seem freshly cooked and was of a good quality and the slaw added a good contrasting flavor.
North Carlton Canteen is a great cafe to visit with all kinds of menu favorite and specials that keep things fresh. Its definitely worth checking out
