The Chicken Bar has been a hit since it opened its doors in the H Code complex, off Pottinger Street, and remains popular with Hong Kong's fried chicken fans for the birdie options it serves up. As well as a range of fried chicken sandwiches that come with dashi mayo for a subtle Japanese twist, there's also a selection of delicious fried chicken on the menu, from bite-sized chicken poppers to fried chicken and gravy.
This town excels at posh versions of fast-food favourites. If like us you've already tasted the best pizzas, chowed down the best burgers and sampled the best sandwiches, so now it may well be time to see what's on offer in terms of fried chicken.
The magical contrast of textures synonymous with good fried chicken is due to the thick batter encasing the meat and protecting it from the scorching oil. Inside this delectable cocoon, the chicken actually steams in its own juices to tender perfection. Meanwhile, the hot oil draws moisture out of the batter, leaving a crispy, crunchy, golden crust.
So whether you like your chicken boneless and smothered in hot sauce or straight-up to be gnawed off the bone, make sure you have a pack of tissues handy, because things are about to get messy. Many of these places also deliver, so if you want to keep the mess at home, it's easy to do so. By Sam Sinha and Sam Evans
