It may surprise you to learn that some dialects pronounce 'roast chicken' as 'Korr Jee', or so chef-owner Will's hometown does. All you need to know, though, is that this eatery is serving the best roast chicken in St Kilda. It's that simple.
'You should be proud of what you eat', their slogan goes, and they're right. Perhaps the humblest of meats is transformed, thanks to an abundance of fresh herbs and slow-roasting methods, into something succulent with endless flavour. And instead of the usual chicken shop aesthetic, they've turned things right around with a lush exterior that is fresh and leafy. Organic textures like rattan and linen are paired with tall palms and plentiful ferns, all of which make sure that the central neon Korr Jee Chicken sign gets all the attention it deserves.
So, without further ado, let's talk chicken. Taking roast chicken to a whole other level, all chicken is free-range and sourced from South Gippsland before it is brined and dry-aged for an incredible depth of flavour. Have yourself a quarter, half or whole chicken depending on how many of you there are (or how hungry you are) and pair it with some chips, arancini balls or a simple side salad.
They're also dressing up chicken in all kinds of different ways. A versatile ingredient if ever there was one, enjoy crispy chicken between two brioche buns, hot chicken wings and chicken tikka curry that's served with coconut rice and raita. Thankfully, dessert departs with the central theme and serves up homemade treats like banana bread and cheesecake; the perfect ending that you definitely won't chicken out of...
