Best Fried Chicken in Melbourne – Fantastic Fried Fowl!


When it comes to fried chicken that well-known franchise from Kentucky rules the roost as it were! But that being said, there are all kinds of different fried chicken varieties to treat your taste buds to, each with different flavours and each just as finger or fork licking good! If you are a connoisseur of such delectable delights or perhaps a foodie who is craving for some fried fowl when in Australia, here are some places where you can enjoy the best fried chicken in Melbourne.


If you like your chicken portions to be as huge as your appetite, then head on over to The B.East which is within easy reach of serviced apartments Melbourne CBD has to offer. Large portions of fried chicken that have been prepared to a Southern-style recipe come accompanied with ranch dressing (homemade) that add to the wonderful taste sensations. For dishes with a distinctive Asian influence, you can try Gami which serves up Korean-style fried chicken. Located around a 5 to 10 minute walk from Oaks on William, this well known dining venue has a unique preparation of chicken which incorporates a sauce that has a certain spiciness to it along with soy garlic and sweet chilli. An added benefit of dining here is the chance to enjoy your chicken with some famous house beer.


Tender chicken that has been fried till its golden in colour while having that essential crispiness is what you will find at Belle’s Diner. Much like Colonel Sanders, the chef here, Catriona Freeman has her own secret recipe for this spice infused scrumptious treat. If you are in the mood to sample another kind of KFC, try some St Katherine’s Fried Chicken! Maryland chicken is what is used here along with a rather distinctive preparation method that involves tomato soup and believe it or not… cornflakes!
