I’m currently sick so it’s quite depressing scrolling through my photo album that consists mainly of food 😢 Especially when I have a sore throat and I’ve only been eating porridge, berocca and orange juice for the past few days.
A couple of weeks ago, I had dinner with some friends and we all agreed that Papparich would be a great place for drinks and dessert 🍨 I also got myself a second dinner - the famous fried chicken sandwich ✨ Truly what dreams are made of, because when Papparich and Belles Hot Chicken do a collaboration, you know it’s gonna be good 👌 I honestly feel like the photos do not do the sandwich justice at all, because it was probably the best fried chicken sandwich - probably also the best fried chicken - I’ve had in a long, long while. And I take my fried chicken extremely seriously 🧐🐥 This was the first time I’ve had Belles’ fried chicken and I was highly impressed. The seasoning was like nothing I’ve ever had before, and the chicken pieces were massive, but still retained a beautiful balance of juicy, tender, flavourful meat amidst fresh, crunchy batter. The Malaysian-style sandwich also featured a Malaysian slaw, made of coconut vinegar and secret sauce 🤫, with the slaw and chicken placed between toasted Hainan bread - slightly buttery, with a hint of sugar. I always find the portion sizes at Papparich incredibly generous, and I found myself struggling to pick up the sandwich due to its sheer size (not struggling to eat it though 🥪❤️). So, so delicious.
I also ordered a brown sugar milk tea on the side and my friend got the barley drink with grass jelly - both were excellent but I enjoyed the latter just that but more! I don’t really see many Asian-style barley drinks in Australia and this one surprised me - a unique, sweet, refreshing dose of childhood nostalgia ☺️ Also not sure if the sandwich is a limited edition item so get in quick! Better safe than sorry 😉🍽 #Brisbane #brisbaneeats #dinner #tea #milktea #dessert #drinks #barley #sandwich #chicken #friedchicken #friedchickensandwich #papparich #belleshotchicken #malaysianfood #hawkerstylefood #slaw #foodieintraining #foodiesofinstagram #hungry #brisbanecbd
