It’s been a while since we clucked some amazing Melbourne Fried Chicken and this place has been on our minds for a while after a few quick stops in the past we decided to give F.A.T. a proper review and boy oh boy it did not disappoint at all.

The Chick went for the fried chicken and waffles with a side of Mac-n-Cheese and Hollywood went for the chicken tenders and poutine

It was very freshly cooked and yummy, the feast was amazing. The chicken was great and rightly spiced

Check out that stretch-a-thon on the Mac-n-Cheese, Ooooohh!!

We are sorry we haven’t been back enough F.A.T. we will be visiting you more in the future (especially since you are close by in our hood) and a word of advice, you should check it out too!

The Art of Fried Chicken

1 Comment

We met our friends for a new Melbourne Fried Chicken adventure at The Art of Fried Chicken.

Most of the group went with the burgers, however Hollywood did go for the pieces (mix of Nashville, Buffalo and Atlanta) and they were really a huge portion!!

Basically each piece was a single breast piece with the flavoring sauce on top.

However in all honesty, the burgers were the true winners here and were just the right blend of juiciness and cheesiness for a burger

Our rating: 7.5/10 Clucks

Screen Door – Portland

Its been a while since we have clucked some great Melbourne fried chicken in a review but Screen Door in Portland pulled us right back in

This place is full of amazing southern style feeds and the fried chicken they had was simply amazing. Steamy, fresh and Crunchy as hell all with the right spices and when paired with the sweet waffles or with their heavenly rich sausage gravy it is an absolute banger!

Check out these amazing fried chooks below

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

image

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

Nene – New Menu

Leave a comment

Hollywood was invited by NeNe Chicken to review their latest newest Melbourne Fried Chicken options

The new menu has crunchy tacos and special burgers to name a few. These were what we were here for, and thats what we got: The kimchi fried burger, an order of bulgogi tacos and some freakin hot wings for some good measure

image

The tacos were indeed crunchy and boasted flesh flavours. However we are fans of soft shell tacos. Nevertheless they are a good lighter fried chicken option and worth a try.

 

 

image

The fried chicken burger was in a soft milk bun, had fried thigh chicken patties and was saucy. It was good and balanced. The fried chicken was freshly cooked and juicy

image

image

The freakin hot wings were indeed the star of the show. These wings were just the right level of hot spicy. Which for Hollywood, apparently is quite hot! However they were really good, freshly cooked and juicy. The spiciness came from the sauce covering the wings which was true the Korean style.

Things did quite messy around here. Love the touch of the plastic gloves.

While there are a bunch of new contenders on Nene’s menu that we recommend trying as a change to usual K fried chicken. The Chicken Scene still is saying NeNe to the friend chicken pieces of NeNe Chicken

Hollywood and the Tan man were chillin’ in NYC and were in the mood for some good ol Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken.

After the order was put, the waiting game was on!

Finally the buzzer rang and the order of drumsticks, wings and tenders along with mac-n-cheese and fries loads showed up

Blue Ribbon is the real deal. Pure excellence! Hot pipin’ finger lickin’ fresh fried chicken with all the right spices. The Tan Man was quoted saying that Melbourne Fried Chicken has to really up it’s game to reach Blue Ribbon’s level!

Cambridge Brewing Company – A Captain’s Review

Leave a comment

The captain was at MIT and needed some dinner after a long day of study.

A short walk from campus and we found the Cambridge Brewing Company (1 Kendall Sq Bldg 100 Cambridge MA). They had “pickle brined fried chicken” on the menu with mac n cheese and butter beans.

The meal was delivered relatively quickly (within 15 minutes).

The chicken was hot, lightly spicy and quite tasty. I received 2 reasonable size pieces. The coating was crispy.
Mac n Cheese was very cheesey of a medium size and the butter beans were an ideal accompaniment.

Overall a very nice ‘comfort food’ meal, nothing spectacular but not disappointing.

3 clucks out of 5.
