Belles – A quick visit

Leave a comment

So we’ve been getting a lot of negative reviews about Belle’s especially their new Prahran branch. So Hollywood decided to give their other branches a try and visited the Richmond one for a quick hit and run of some Melbourne Fried Chicken.

The order was simple, tenders with a mild setting accompanied with coleslaw and a Mississippi Comeback smokey sauce

We really don’t get the new beef with Belle’s chicken. It was as always fresh, juicy rightly spiced and still damn good. ¬†The combo with the sauce did also add more flavour and a bit more juiciness.

Ok, there are a few new con-tenders bringing in some new flavours but still Belle’s does cluck¬†high and is still one of our top picks

Hollywood’s Rating: 9/10 Clucks

Hollywood and the Chick and Co went to Miss Katie’s Crab Shack new location in Melbourne CBD.We previously tried their chicken in their Victoria St location and it was generally OK but it was time to check out if their Melbourne Fried Chicken offering has upped its game.

We ordered a whole lotta things: Fried chicken, crabs, salads, fries, fried tomatoes. We were a bit worried we ordered too much. There was literally no room for the food coming out on our table!

The chicken came out hot, freshly cooked and steamy. The crispy crunch was definitely there and the spices were present. We really did enjoy the chicken. However they were trumped by the fried green tomatoes.

imageWhile the chicken was good, there was nothing really that stood out about it. The real stars of Miss Katie’s were the fried tomatoes and the crabs (as the name of the place suggests).

Have the chicken if you are around/there but don’t make a dedicated trip for it
