The Lion King is now screening in 3D and I convinced my bf to take me as we had free movie ticket. I love reliving childhood memories and yes, I did cry during the movie. Just once! We decided to eat around the Morley complex since I don’t go there often and I found two great eats.
Golden Chicks, only opened three months ago, is the perfect place for a snack or meal of chicken wing goodness. This brilliant korean concept is simple. You choose either fried or roast chicken and then choose a flavour from original, sweet chilli or soy.
Golden Chicks Fried Sweet Chilli Chicken Wings $18.50 (Regular)
Very golden and finger lickin’ good. The sauce was out of this world. A cross breed between sweet and sour chilli and singapore sauce. Sprinkled with crunchy nuts. The chicken pieces include either wings or drumsticks.
Also include with their meals, if you eat there, is a bucket for the chicken bones and towelettes. How thoughtful.
Golden Chicks Roasted Soy Chicken $9.50 (small)
The roasted chicken had a more smokey taste and the sweet soy went swimmingly with them.
Both fried and roast chicken are marinated for 12hours and they only use 100% canola oil.
Golden Chicks Small Salad $2.50
Other sides include wedges and tornado potato. The salad was refreshing and the dressing was really yummy.
Golden Chicks own Towelettes
Yes, you will end up needing these.
They deliver, accept text message orders and have party packs. From the reviews I have read about this place, anyone who tries it ends up returning and so will I.
The entrance of the Nic’s Shak is bright and colourful. Three guesses what they sell?

Nic’s Woodfired Pizza Menu
If you ask the owner nicely he will do a half n half pizza for you.
Nic’s Shak Drinks Menu
Yes, you saw right. You can add an egg in your milkshake. When I asked the owner how many people have actually tried it, he said one. Apparently back in the day it was quite popular for people who want extra protein.
Nic’s Shak The Shak Burger $13.95
Homemade giant beef patty with bacon, egg, cheese, mushrooms, and fried onions with veggies. The bun was so soft and soaked up all the juiciness of the burger patty. The patty was absolutely delicious. Beefy, herby and did I mention juicy?
