31 Mar Chicken N Beer, Richmond
As one might expect, Chicken N Beer specialises in chicken. Fried chicken to be exact. On the non-chicken front you’ll find snacks like grilled corn cobs with spices and parmesan, and croquettes filled with a smooth mixture of potato, cheese, roast capsicum and sautéed leek. Mains include steak and duck, and there are salads to balance all the fried goodness.
But let’s face it, we’re really here for the chicken. There are finger-licking good grilled wings, marinated in Chicken n Beer’s signature sauce, and crunchy popcorn chicken bites served with sweet chilli.
Chicken waffles come with a choice of either maple or blue cheese sauce. We choose maple to go with our golden nugget of deliciousness and its soft and fluffy waffles. At the back of my mind, there’s always a fear of overcooked protein when I order fried boneless pieces. No need to worry here. The boneless fillet is surprisingly juicy, even though the breast piece is used, and is accompanied by very chunky and tasty chips.
Chicken N Beer might be on an even quieter section of Bridge road, but it’s a fried chicken heaven that’s worth a trip.
