Six words: All-you-can-eat fried chicken. That's what's on offer at Sunnybank's Seoul Bistro, the Korean-Japanese fusion eatery with a cult following. They've got a pretty damn finger-lickin' good a la carte menu, but for just $21.90 per person, you can gorge on unlimited fried chicken wings, fries, garlic bread and lemon iced tea. We know what we're picking...
Sydney: Chir Chir

Korea's famous Chir Chir fried chicken chain has finally made its way down under (to Burwood, specifically) and we couldn't be happier. On top of their iconic Venus Cheesy Chicken (see above) and a gazillion flavours of fried chicken, they've also got delish hotpots, crispy onion rings, loaded fries and tons more. Insta-worthy dishes that still pack a flavour punch? Don't mind if we do...

Melbourne: Gami Chicken & Beer

The brainchild of four Korean exchange students who met at Monash Uni, this beloved Melbourne chicken joint is a celebration of chimaek - the mouthwatering Korean tradition of pairing fried chicken with beer. Apologies, vegans, but chook is pretty much all that's on the menu at Gami, and they sure know how to do it well.

Adelaide: Ban Ban

It's only been around a year, but Ban Ban in the CBD has already proven itself a Korean fried chicken force to be reckoned with. They've even got plant-based fried chicken for your vego mates that looks and tastes like the real thing. Oh, and they do spam fries, too. No, we don't mean spam-loaded potato fries, we mean fried spam strips instead of potato. Sounds weird, we know, but they're weirdly delicious.
Perth: 7 Grams

This unassuming North Perth eatery may not be the most glamorous place in the world, but with KFC this good, who cares. Whether you like your chook spicy, garlicky or smothered in liquid cheese, you're catered for here. They also do a mean burger and melt-in-the-mouth beef bulgogi, if you feel like branching out from legs 'n' wings.
