Gami Chicken & Beer Hawthorn
The Hawthorn outpost of this popular Korean fried chicken joint is waiting for you.
December 19, 2019
UPDATE: JULY 24, 2020 — Gami's Melbourne restaurants are currently closed to dine-in, but it's offering delivery via Deliveroo, UberEats and DoorDash. On the menu: a 'comfort pack' for two (or one) with eight wings, chips and half a boneless chicken for a very reasonable $35.
In Korean, gami loosely translates to "beautiful taste" and this popular chicken and beer joint certainly embodies that sentiment. The casual eatery in Hawthorn is known for making some pretty epic fried chicken. All you need to do is agree on bones or no bones, and whether you want it served up in its OG crunchy format, or coated in one of three sauces – sweet chilli, soy garlic or spicy. You can also get amongst some traditional Korean side dishes like kimchi or the dangerously moreish tteok-bokki (stir-fried rice cakes covered in chilli sauce). Beer is obviously the other big player and it's available in glasses just bigger than a pot, a jug or a large oak barrel.
