Belle's Hot Chicken

American in Fitzroy, Collingwood & Abbotsford

Chef Morgan McGlone knew he was onto a good thing while honing his kitchen skills in the States. But since bringing Nashville fried chicken to Australia and pairing it with natural wine, it's been a finger-lickin' revolution. Launch into tenders, drumsticks or wings with your preference of heat (note: 'Really F**kin Hot' is accurately named).

If you're serious about chicken, commit to a Baller Bucket: 16 wings, four sides and four sauces ($65). There are another two stores in the city, on Elizabeth St and in Collins Sq.
