Happy chicken, happy sandwich, happy you
Have you ever dreamed of a world where chooks are running free? Well these guys have. Pecking Order is the ultimate place to have a healthy, happy meal.
Once again I'm heading to Swan Street to get my lunch, this time I decided to take Church Street instead of Swan and surprise, surprise. A big queue in a chicken shop tells me "There is something good around here". I take a shot at it, the menu announces Flame grilled chicken. As I get closer to the counter I can see a Popcorn machine (WTH?), I put my order and the girl at the counter asks me "Do you want free popcorn?", can this get any better? Well yes it can, the chicken is also free.
Made with 100% free range chicken Pecking Order offers a variety of sandwiches, wraps, salad and burgers that not only are healthy and taste good but also makes you feel better. My favourites are Posh Nuggets with aioli and Freedom wrap made of chicken breast, lettuce, tomato, aioli and Tomato Chutney. They also offer a Vegetarian option and a small menu for kiddies. You may like it if you are after healthy-nutritious-tasty food but don't expect too much seasoning.
