We ended up ordering the corn and chips as sides and a mix of the garlic chicken and the bulgogi fried chicken

The chicken was the usual Korean style that was dipped in sauces. The garlic one had an interesting flavor while the bulgogi was just another version of the spicy. The pieces were average size but the overall flavor was average Korean style fired chicken. It was all hot, fresh and good however nothing really special

Hollywood was with some friends and they all decided to hit up Oriental Spoon for some Korean style Melbourne Fried Chicken

With so many good options to pick from the gang settled on the mixed Korean Fried Chicken (Original and Sweet and Spicy flavoured), Beef Bibimbap, and Kimchi Pancake

The chicken was true to Korean style and was freshly cooked. Although the pieces were boneless they were chunky and meaty. The sweet and spicy flavour was a sauce covering the chicken. It was good and tasted very well. The original style was good and crunchy.

The Bibimbap was average and the kimchi pancake was nice, juicy and big (kinda similar to pizza size)

Easey’s

Hollywood and the boys have been trying to hit up Easey’s for a while now. They finally managed to fit in and to their surprise they had Melbourne Fried Chicken on the menu. Heres some photos of what went down

20160115_130038

Verdict: Alright so Easey’s is a burger joint more than fried chicken. The burgers were good. The chicken portion was small (3 pieces which kinda makes it more of a side) however the chicken was really good and spiced right. The mac-n-cheese on the other hand was really heavily cheesy

Osaka Ya

One thing we forgot to mention is WE LOVE RAMEN. We’ve actually been considering starting a ramen blog and during our last visit to Japan Hollywood had a ramen a day for the entire length of our stay.

We were excited to find out a new ramen joint opened close by and we checked it out for a good slurpiliciousness bowl and ofcourse being true to Japanese cuisine there was Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken). Check out the photos

The Karaage was good, hot juicy and freshly cooked. It was accompanied with a kewpie mayo which add a twist to it. The ramen on the other hand was average, it was actually not hot, bummer!

SAM SAM

Yes, we came back for Sam Sam. As usual, it was true to its Korean fried chicken colors. Good fried chicken below:

Sam Sam is a good Korean fried chicken contender that we still recommend going to.

The boys couldn’t stop raving about Sam Sam and how Hollywood was missing out on the best Korean Melbourne Fried Chicken ever. This blog is a result of massive FOMO

20151127_131908

20151127_133340

We settled in the downstairs area and got straight into business; beers and loads of fried chicken. We got half boneless in the original flavor and half boneless in the soy and garlic flavor in addition to the wings in the hot and spicy sauce

20151127_134404

The wings arrived first and were the typical Korean style where they are fried then doused in the sauce. They had the right level of heat and were good. Cooked well, hot and steamy. The accompanying coleslaw was also a delight.

20151127_134851

The remainder of our order arrived and it was the right size: BIG! The original style was good, had a good crunch to it while the soy and garlic had good tasty flavors. Overall the chicken was all fresh, juicy and tender. The order was also accompanied by the delicious slaw and pickles.

Overall Sam Sam is a really good Korean Fried Chicken that is in the heart of Swanston St. It is also has a cool vibe to it that is definitely worth checking out

Rice Queen

Rice Queen has been on The Chicken Scenes list of Melbourne Fried Chicken for a long time now. As Hollywood and The Chick were in Fitzroy lookng for a good Asian food option, they stumbled on Rice Queen and decided that it was just the right time to check it out.

We ordered the bucket of Korean Fried Chicken, the fried rice, Penang Kway Teow and some Kimchi as a side

20151003_213002

20151003_213030

The chicken was surprisingly really good. It was pieces of ribs that were spiced rightly and had a little bit of heat which gave a great flavor. The accompanying sauce was a bit on the sweeter side which gave a really good contrast when needed.

20151003_213107

The other king of the rice queen was the fried rice. This was a great fried rice dish with lots of flavors from prawns, pork and chillis!

Rice Queen is a great Asian fusion place with a worthy fried chicken dish that we definitely recommend experiencing.

Korean Fried Chicken Truck

It was a great spring day which meant all the clucking Melbourne Fried Chicken trucks were out and about and Hollywood and The Chick (& Co) were starving for some good golden crispy chooks

20150822_112657

20150822_112708

We stumbled up the Korean Fried Chicken Truck in Alma Park in St Kilda East and decided to give it a go. We ordered a serve of the fried chicken pieces which came with a spicy mayo and hot sauce, seaweed that was all resting on a bed of slaw.

The chicken pieces were all wings and drumettes. They were all juicy and fresh and the accompanying sauces added lots of flavor which helped the chicken out in the spice department. For some reason this place reminded us of Japanese style chicken (Karaage), maybe because of the seaweed?
