It’s big, it’s satisfying and the flesh is a crispy, made better when topped with melted cheese and bun. You can dip the chook in the cheese or even stuff pieces of meat into the bun.

Also, the boneless ‘freaking hot’ fried chicken is mind-blowingly spicy. The pieces are basted with super-hot sauce but, underneath, the meat is moist and succulent.
