Make lunchtimes great again with a visit to this finger-licking pop-up

Juicy, succulent, and crispy fried in a medley of finger-licking herbs and spices, our love for the humble fried chicken knows no bounds. Luckily for us, a chicken extravaganza is descending upon Mercury Plaza in the form of Electric Chicken — a fresh pop-up serving up a remarkable burger that’s set to be devoured by the masses.

Conceived by Matt Fitzgerald  — co-owner of Madame George — this fleeting hotspot will be sticking to a short but sweet ethos, serving up a menu consisting of just two dishes. Championing quality over quantity, the offering comprises portions of fries with gravy and servings of the namesake burger — free-range chicken, fried in a delicious secret recipe, crunchy iceberg lettuce, gherkins and a swipe of Fitzgerald’s signature ‘Electric sauce’, all sandwiched between an Il Forno baked bun.

Open only for a few hours at a time, and with a cult following already amassing, we suggest you head down to good ol’ K Road, order up a storm and devour it on the spot — because once they’re gone, they’re gone. On your marks…

Opening hours: 
Wednesday – Sunday 12pm-2.30pm
