There is a reason that Fried Chicken is so popular all around the world. Chickens are just about everywhere and super tasty, especially when fried and transformed into tasty, tasty goodness. So here are 5 fantastic Canberra versions that won’t leave you peckish!
5. Soul Cartel, 6 Farr Place, Isaacs ACT 2607.
I ordered the Popcorn Chicken for the kids, without really thinking I would be writing about it. But then I saw it, and as you can see, they look great! They were golden and crunchy, covered in ranch sauce, cheese and chives- which combined into a mouth-watering snack for any occasion! With so many good options at the Farrside Cafe, we will be back to try more.
4. Fricken, Pop-up Food Truck, Canberra ACT 2600.
Straight out of the gate, I am going to say that the name is great and so is the chicken. Kind of obvious really, it wouldn’t be on this list if it wasn’t! Who would have thought that waffle cones and fried chicken were such an amazing combination? Not me, but what do I know! Great name, great chicken- great combo!
3. The Café at Rodneys, 24 Beltana Road, Piallago ACT 2609.
I love coming to The Café, the relaxed atmosphere and playground make it a regular haunt for us. I also have to admit that I order the same thing every time. If you want to try a Korean Fried Chicken that is golden and crunchy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, this is the place to come. The tangy secret chilli sauce is delicious, but be warned- it has a little kick.
2. Lazy-Su, 1/9 Lonsdale St, Braddon ACT 2612.
I came in for a midday lunch and found great value and satisfaction. It doesn’t get more fused than a Buttermilk Fried Chicken Bao-gur, with peanut sauce and American Cheese. Once ordered, there were no regrets. This is going on my Braddon food memory list. There is also a substantial cocktail list that needs exploring at some stage, too!
1. Ricardos Cafe, 1/1 Bowman St, Macquarie ACT 2614.
Boy oh boy, what a cracker! I absolutely loved this fusion burger! I am so totally sold on this fusion that I feel a top 5 fusion dishes coming on. I am a firm believer that everything is better with bacon, and this Korean Fried Chicken Burger is definitely no exception. It is, in fact, so good that I want to move to Belconnen to be closer to it.
Go check them out- these 5 Fried Chicken dishes are sure to ruffle some Canberran feathers!
Happy Eating, Happy Canberra!
