Belles Hot Chicken: Review

After a morning of work meetings we had the afternoon to ourselves so decided to hop on the tram and check out Fitzroy. We were hungry and I remembered reading about Belle’s Hot Chicken so after checking our location in relation to it’s (just a couple of blocks) we made our way there.

Belle’s is so superbly outfitted, I felt like it was exactly what it was trying to be: a Southern US Chicken joint. Not quite fast food but not too fancy either. We ordered the chicken tenders (hot – my husband would come to regret that) with pickle and Belle’s Bleu Cheese sauce, Old Bay fries , a cardamom lemonade and a sweet tea to share.

The drinks appeared first and wowsers, that cardamom lemonade is really something! The sweet tea was also good however it was really very sweet and we didn’t end up finishing it. Then the food – delicious. The chicken was perfect, albeit a bit hot for my hungry husband!! Belles offer five levels of spice from Southern to Really F**kin Hot and when ordering I pointed out to my husband that they’re not really frightened of heat in the South so maybe we should just go for the Medium. He was set on the Hot (the middle of the scale) and I loved it but he felt we could certainly have dropped to the Medium. The Old Bay fries were absolutely delicious (Maryland has got this seasoning thing sorted.)

Our service at Belles was spot on and I would definitely recommend it. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see a lot more of Fitzroy as after we left with our bellies full the sky split and rained all over our afternoon plans. Instead of spending the afternoon wandering Fitzroy we opted to catch the train back to the city and hide out over a beer or two in one of Melbourne’s famous laneway bars, Hell’s Kitchen in Centre Lane.
