Fried chicken has reached a level of food glory known to very few.
The crunchy, crispy, salty exterior, countered by the juicy interior is a match made in literal heaven.
In complete transparency, the staff at Glam Adelaide include 1 x pescatarian and 1 x coeliac, but we’ve employed the help of our friends, family, and our memories pre-dietaries, to collate a list of our favourite fried chicken joints.
With no further ado and in alphabetical order.
This traditional Korean fried chicken restaurant is an Insta-haven spot that slings the most delicious fried chicken.
