Quick Chop! Hotstar fried chicken

Hotstar Large Fried Chicken - 75-79 Grote Street Adelaide, 5000

For those of you who are unaware, Hotstar Large Fried Chicken is a Taiwanese franchise which serves (as the name suggests) oversized large fried chicken. The picture below shows me (Mirko) with a piece of the large fried chicken bigger than the palm of my hand and almost as large as my face!

My first run in with Hotstar was whilst I was on holidays in Hong Kong where whilst in Mongkok my friends and I saw a long line up of people waiting to purchase this dish. So when I saw this franchise open up in Adelaide I was very happy as it brought back nostalgic memories of my time in Hong Kong.

There is not a lot to this blog and apart from saying that, the chicken is big, its tender on the inside, crispy on the outside and for the serving size decently priced ($7.90). The chicken breast is served on the bone and not pre cooked so you will need to wait, but I would rather do this and have it fresh than the alternative. The chicken is a little oily so be aware of this before purchasing. Some of you may be used to Korean Fried Chicken (think Bon Chon) which is not oily at all so just be aware.

You can get your chicken in original or hot (I went hot) but would have liked it to have more of a kick. The menu is very simple allowing you to purchase the chicken or four other sides; curly fries, sweet potato fries, mushroom bites and chicken bites. Drinks are also available for purchase.

If you are in the mood for some fried chicken and want to try something new, give Hotstar Large Fried Chicken a go!
