Why did the fried chicken fan cross Hawken Drive? To eat all the greasy chook they could handle, of course. What might sound like a groan-worthy joke is actually happening in St Lucia thanks to KaiKai Chicken, who is bringing another fried chicken buffet to Brisbane.
The shop is helping locals solve the eternal question faced by hungry chook fiends everywhere — aka whether to have one finger lickin' good piece, several, or more than anyone should actually admit to. Opening its doors on July 24, it'll serve up an endless array of poultry in 12 different flavours, plus all-you-can-eat pizza, fries, salads, other sides and desserts to round out the meal. A la carte orders are also available, but who wants that when there's fried chicken and pizza at arms reach?
The affordable — albeit hardly healthy — package will set diners back $24.95, with bottomless homemade lemon iced tea available for an extra $1.50. A rib buffet is also in the works for an additional $18, but won't be ready when the store launches.
If it sounds too good to be true, we're here to tell you that it's about to become a clucking reality; however, each visit does have a time limit. Flocking customers are asked to get their chicken fix within 90 minutes due to the anticipated demand— and, let's be honest, after an hour and a half of seeing how much chook you can gorge upon, you'll probably be ready to fly the coop anyway.
Find KaiKai Chicken at 1/225 Hawken Drive, St Lucia from July 24. Head to their Facebook page for further information.
