Popeye’s (Jordan)

Leave a comment

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

image

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

Hollywood and the Chick were hanging out near Werribee bouts and remember that there was a Melbourne Fried Chicken establishment making the rounds of the best fried chicken blogs

We were more in a sampling mood so we ordered the a few pieces of chicken, the popcorn chicken and some crispy onion rings

While this was a funky joint the chicken was not that impressive. The chicken was fresh however wasn’t spiced enough and it was a bit greasy/oily and salty. Perhaps the burgers are the star of Truck Stop?

It was a long day after a long hike. And it was time for some good old Melbourne Fried Chicken, and Leonard’s was there for rescue

We ordered bucket loads of chicken, the normal and spicy crunch, along with fries and mac n cheese

The chicken at Leonard’s is superb, fresh, steamy and crunchy with all the right spices. You can’t go wrong at Leonard’s. Check out more of these lovelies:
