This thing is pure heaven, its a big piece of chicken with amazing sauces boasting spicy-mayo with lettuce and melting cheese. the chicken piece is a big thigh piece, not usually what Hollywood craves, but it is just right. Crispy, crunchy, steamy on the inside amazing fried chicken.

Marys (Newtown)

Leave a comment

Hollywood and the work gang were in Sydney for a work visit and decided to drop by the original Mary’s in Newtown for some good old fried chicken

This place is grungy as can be. It boasts some awesome burgers and some fried chicken along with other sides

image

We ordered a big bunch of burgers with fries and a whole bird to share along some cool Sam Adams

image

The fried chicken was truely crispy however was a bit more on the greasy side. It was freshly cooked and steamy however lacked a bit in the flavour…

image

image

…However that is where the hot sauce came in to save the day

Overall, the chicken was good however needed the hot sauce to deliver that extra kick. The real heroes at Mary’s are the burgers. Go for those and you will definitely be a winner

Hollywood went for an order of the spicy sam burger and the southern fried chicken tenders

image

image

The chicken here is a side dish that has 3 pieces of tenders with coleslaw and chipotle mayo

The spicy sam on the hand, was a great mess of a burger with the right level spiciness!

The chicken was really good. Crispy and crunchy, freshly cooked, breast pieces. It wasn’t over spiced but thats what the chipotle mayo was there for, a good sidekick!

Overall, Hello Sam has stepped up its game with the new menu and the fried chicken tenders are really good and their buddy the chipotle mac-n-cheese is a good partner in crime to have as well (not captured in this review, but tried and tasty)

Sonny’s

Hollywood and his mate The Guns finally visited Sonny’s for some Melbourne Fried Chicken.

Ok, so be warned, the pieces of chicken at Sonny’s are freakin huuuge! and yes we definitely over ordered

So as you can see, the chicken pieces at Sonny’s are massive. All the pieces come with bones, usually one big bone which makes it a bit easier to handle. It was all fresh and tasty. It resembled a bit of a KFC taste, nothing wrong with that. However one thing that didn’t sit well was the coating separated easily from the chicken and underneath that was the fatty skin just sitting there. Not the best of things to see but we still ate it all anyway.

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?

Parlour Diner

Leave a comment

It was at the end of a day of a long hike and all of us had Melbourne Fried Chicken on our minds. So we went to good ol faithful Parlour Diner

image

The chicken scene is no stranger to Parlour Diner. We ordered loads of fried chicken and dug straight into it

image

image

image

Our only beef with Parlour’s fried chicken this time was although it was freshly cooked and well spiced it felt a bit dry and a little bit too oily

image

image

 

image

That didnt stop us ofcourse from smashing the whole load. However it seems Parlour wasn’t on their A game, what a shame!
