Let’s get one thing straight: few things make a girl happier than succulent fried chicken. From the golden crispy shell which holds together the gift of juicy tender meat, you could say fried chicken is something to get clucky about.

Funny Funny | CBD

Funny Funny is no laughing matter because this chicken is serious business. They’ve moved into a more grown up location, and whilst the interior might be a little more swish, it’s still all about that delicious, dirty, finger lickin’ good fried chicken.

Yardbird| Fortitude Valley & Stones Corner

These southern fried wings bring all the boys to the Yardbird, and they’re like, it’s better than yours. Damn right, it’s better than yours. They could teach you, but they’d have to charge. And they do, but it’s pretty ‘cheep’ considering how addictive it is.
