Taiwanese Fried Chicken has come to Sydney! I’m not sure I even knew it existed, except that suddenly there appeared an intriguing shopfront on Liverpool Street, heading into the City that often had a line-up. I decided I had to try it. At $8.50, I thought it might be a small, manageable piece of chicken. My better half ordered the original, and I opted for the spicy version. What it is, apparently, is a large flattened chicken breast. It still has some bones in it (so you can tell it’s real chicken, maybe) and is crumbed and then deep-fried so it’s super-crispy. I have decided for 2016 that my food rule is to never eat something larger than my face (which means that the schnitzels at Una’s are out, sorry Una). This was huge, but smaller than my face, so I think I’m OK.
My chicken was soooo crispy and delicious, it felt rather sinful to eat it. I thought the spicy powder on it was a bit artificial tasting, and would advise against it, but overall, I thought this was an amazing tasty treat.
