Tasty Rooster Charcoal Chicken, Fitzroy, Melbourne
Performing a few miracles when I’m in desperate and urgent need of something fried at an hour that’s sometimes late, Tasty Rooster Charcoal Chicken is the local for something quick, cheap and meaty. It’s a no frills affair with an extensive menu offering including rotisserie chicken, fried chicken, souvlakis (!), burgers, sandwiches and other fried options. I’ve popped in for the fried chicken and at $7.90 for two pieces and a healthy serving of chips, it’s easy on the wallet too. Chips were cooked to order making for fresh from the fryer crunchiness but the last few visits had the chicken on the formerly warm side of things, which was a dampener on the fun.
