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!

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.

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.
