Are you a fan of Korean Fried Chicken? If the answer is yes then you have to try NeNe Chicken! The name “NeNe” translates to “Yes! Yes!” in Korean, and this store first opened in 1999 in South Korea. Since then they have expanded to over 1000 outlets in South Korea, and have recently opened their first Australian store in Melbourne Central. Being a huge fan of Korean Fried Chicken, I was thrilled when NeNe Chicken finally opened.
Original Fried Chicken
You can’t go past the original. And the Korean mustard gave each bite some tasty edge.
Oriental Green Onion
Original chicken designed to be eaten with fresh crunchy green onion and soy/wasabi sauce.
Don’t be fooled by the name, this was definitely fried chicken and it was seriously good. The powdery coating was mildly sweet and almost tasted like corn.
Sweet, spicy, and very addictive.
Adequately named, this one is not for the faint-hearted! You have been warned!
NeNe Chicken offers a variety of crunchy, juicy fried chicken coated in a mouth watering selection of secret recipe sauces. All of their fried chicken is served with coleslaw and radish, and I love the fact that they offer disposable gloves so that you can enjoy your fried chicken with your hands, minus the mess. Unfortunately there is very limited seating at the Melbourne Central store so I am looking forward to the opening of the dine in venues at Box Hill and High Point. So the next time you are in the mood for fast quality Korean Fried Chicken, you know where to go.
Melbourne Central, Level 1, Corner of Swanston Street and La Trobe Street, Melbourne
