Clean eating is great and all, and might get us those flat abs we’ve been fantasizing about, but sometimes (ok, all the time) we’ve got a craving that can’t be satisfied by boiled chicken with a side of kale. A craving for something crunchy, crumbling and dripping in oil – a craving for deep fried eats. So if, like us, the mere sound of that sizzle as the basket hits the oil usually has you throwing all #cleaneating aspirations by the wayside, then this list of Brisbane’s best deep fried eats.
Kentucky fried duck | CBD
Public’s KFD is all it’s quacked up to be, and after one bite of the juicy duck with its crisp and spicy coating, you’ll never go back to the Colonel’s original again.
Deep fried silken tofu | CBD
Ok, normally we wouldn’t touch tofu with a 10-foot pole but somehow, Fat Noodle turns it into a crisp, flavoursome, melt-in-your-mouth morsel, just made for dunking in soy sauce.
Crumbed mozzarella sticks | Woolloongabba
More creamy deep fried cheesiness, this Italian delight is stringy mozzarella crumbed and fried to warm, gooey heaven.
Beef cheek spring rolls | CBD
We don’t know about you, but we’re loving the creative things people are doing with spring rolls at the moment – particularly the beef cheek spring rolls at Cicada!
Fried zucchini flowers | Woolloongabba
Floral and fried don’t usually go hand in hand but these crunchy golden flowers are definitely an exception to the rule.
