Gong Cha & Hot Star Chicken Barkly

Shop 26, in Barkly Square at 90 Sydney Road, Brunswick
Gong Cha 貢茶 is a popular bubble tea chain that was established in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 2006, and since 2009, has swept many countries; Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Macau, Philippines, Korea and Malaysia – by storm. Should Australia miss out on a chance to experience high-quality, freshly brewed beverages? They certainly don’t think so!

And, introducing Hot Star Chicken, the ridiculously oversized fried chicken that everyone in Melbourne is talking about. Made from 100% fresh chicken breasts and coated with a secret recipe all the way from Shilin Market in Taiwan, this is authentic street food at its best. The crunchy coating has just the right level of crispiness and seasoning – and the chicken inside is tender and succulent. So the first bite is a treat for your taste buds; the second is simply an inevitability. Just be warned, once you’ve eaten the gigantic chicken, you’ll be back for more!
