If you love fried chicken, you’ll love the Chicken Institute. This is a cosy restaurant among many other chic bars and cafes clustered in the heart of Surry Hills. The restaurant is run by Chef Heaven Kim, who has creatively infused her cultural Korean heritage into modern cuisine. For lunch, the restaurant offers bento-style express lunches, but the star would be their buckets of Fried chicken prepared in various different spices and sauces. Grab a damn good fried chicken with spicy salt and lime for a classic, or if you’re feeling adventurous, the peanut butter chicken with coconut, coriander and jalepenos is a uniquely delicious combination. Make sure you order a modern Asian fusion side to complement your meal. The price is quite a step-up from KFC, but it is unbeatably finger-lickin' good.
