We ❤️ fried chicken, always have and always will.
Our love of fried chicken started before we can even remember – with our family’s secret, signature fried chicken recipe. We finally decided it was too good not share. Now, we’re bringing it to Canberra.
From our humble beginning in a food truck, we’ve moved to a new home in Canberra’s foodie hot spot – Lonsdale Street in Braddon.

    Once again a great meal. I had the teriyaki burger which was delicious. The food comes out quickly and you won't find a better vegan shake than the choc Oreo shake. I have it for dessert, delicious!

    Hadn't been before but glad we went. A great range of options including for my vegan wife which is terrific. She loved her Fregan Burger and Cauliflower bites - so nice to be able to order something from a menu and not ask for changes. Our daughter and I had chicken and really enjoyed it - the chicken was great and tasted like chicken and the toppings were really nice and didn't kill the chicken. Will go back and probably become a regular. Great stuff.

    A new place for us to sample, the chicken was great. Our table sampled a few items from the menu. BUT the dessert waffle was too die for... amazing! We will be back to sample more items and inhale another waffle.... YUM!
