Go Crazy with Crunchy Spiced Taiwanese Fried Snacks
Taiwanese-style fried chicken has hit Sydney and it's never tasted this good. It is the latest snack craze in Sydney. This is a popular iconic street food originate from Taiwan's night markets and Sydneysiders are embracing these golden deep-fried chicken morsels.
The Taiwanese-style chicken bites were seasoned with 5-spiced herbs. The first thing I noticed was the aromatic smell, especially with fried basil leaves. It looked like a little pile of golden nuggets, deep fried to crispy crunchy and dusted with the special Taiwanese seasoning.
They were moreishly crunchy and the 5-spices flavour has the addictive quality where you can't stop at one. The chicken bites were just a bit on the dry side and was not as juicy and moist as I liked. Having said that, the flavours were intense and utterly delicious.
We also ordered some curly fries and deep-fried cuttlefish balls.
The curly fries were fantastic. Dusted in special-spiced salt and pepper, they were so addictive. They were crispy crunchy and wiggly curly on the outside and fluffy soft on the inside. It was a fun potato snack.
We ordered the fried squid balls because it was highly recommended. Essentially they were just deep fried squid balls coated in a sheer batter. However they tasted amazing. The bite-sized squid balls were juicy, crispy, and packed with flavour.
It was hard to decide which one I liked the best, but they were all finger licking good. They were the perfect tasty snack during the day or late at night and especially after a few drinks.
These fragrant Taiwanese street snacks were served in a canteen-style paper bag. In my opinion, the canteen paper bag did not passed the grease test but the staff did recommended that 3Q chicken should be consumed within 5 minutes.
Stop by before or after the movie session and indulge yourself in a bag of bite-size chicken snack. The taste may haunt you and you would make a special trip into the city to satisfy your fried chicken cravings.
It is open till late and best suited for that hangover cure for the Friday night drinkers.
