This review is of a place that I remember as the best fried chicken place in Jordan when I was growing up. So it seemed only fitting to pay homage to it during my visit back home to see how it compares against Melbourne Fried Chicken. I present to you Popeye’s
The usual go to order for Hollywood is the spicy chicken burger, spicy chicken strips, mashed potatoes with gravy, biscuits and fries
The burger was good, right level of spicy with cheese and some spicy mayo. It was still good, however the bread was a bit too sugary bready, but still good
The chicken strips were good too, however they couldve been better were they chunkier. This made them a bit more crispy fluffy than meaty.
The stars of the show are the mashed potatoe with gravy and the biscuits. The gravy is truely amazing peppery goodness. The biscuits are crispy on the outside and buttery and fluffy on the inside. Combining the two with the chicken is a match made in heaven!
Visiting Popeye’s was a great trip down memory lane. It is fairly good as a fast food fried chicken option in Jordan and I am likely to visit it again
