Drasko’s Hot Chicken, Mount Hawthorn

PERTH | Drasko’s Hot Chicken is the brainchild of journalist turned My Kitchen Rules contestant turned fine dining chef turned restaurateur Drasko Jankovic and Ken Craigie of fried chicken gurus Royals Hot Chicken. It’s all about top notch fried chicken, heavily inspired by the fiery Hot Chicken that Drasko encountered while eating his way through Nashville, along with fine dining tweaks, many learnt during his time at Noma. The brine, for example, has a dashi rather than a buttermilk base.

The result is chicken that’s crisp, juicy, and delicious. You can get it in the aforementioned burger form, or as a Nashville Quarter / Maryland (drumstick and thigh), wings, and tenders. Spice levels range from the milder than mild “Southern”, to the off-menu sign a waiver “Bastard Chicken”. I went for level four out of five “Hot” and… yeah it’s extremely hot! Probably should have gone for the “Medium” in hindsight, but you bet I still ate it all.

For sides, the fries are some of the best in town, seasoned with a house made roast chicken garum chicken salt. And while I didn’t try them (rookie mistake), the “Mama’s Beans”, which riff on Drasko’s Serbian heritage and his mum’s pasulji, ate supposed to be ridiculously good.

I hoped to get back for a dine in feed, but alas time got the best of me. You bet that next time I’m in town I’ll be heading to Drasko’s for some chicken, chips, and those beans.
