We ❤️ fried chicken, always have and always will.
Our love of fried chicken started before we can even remember – with our family’s secret, signature fried chicken recipe. We finally decided it was too good not share. Now, we’re bringing it to Canberra.
From our humble beginning in a food truck, we’ve moved to a new home in Canberra’s foodie hot spot – Lonsdale Street in Braddon.

    We had heard about Fricken through a Coeliac FB group and glad we came. This is the first eat out fried chicken my daughter has had safely since she was diagnosed nine years ago. Lots of choice for gluten-free and tasted spectacular. The team was helpful, positive and energetic. My husband is a little deaf so we asked if they could turn the music down so that we could hear properly and they accommodated this quickly. Even better was we came on a Thursday night so had a halfprice bottle of wine to go with our delicious chicken. Would highly recommend particularly for someone with coeliac disease.

    I loved the gluten free options and extra coeliac care. Would recommend getting extra of whatever sauce is on the box you have as it wasn’t a lot.

    Over priced. Food not great. The chicken in the burgers was over cooked and buns sloppy. Wouldn’t eat there again unfortunately.
