Kwafood Fried Chuan, Melbourne CBD

MELBOURNE | Originating in China, and now with over 1,000 outlets worldwide, Kwafood Fried Chuan recently opened their first Melbourne store in the CBD. It’s a small take-away spot that specialises in Sichuan style fried skewers.

The concept is simple. When you walk in, there’s an assortment of items, skewered and ready to be cooked. Meat, seafood, vegetables, and a few other things. From lean fillet to offal, and tofu to potato, there’s something for everyone. Each skewers costs between $0.83 and $4.15.

You grab a plastic container, load it up with your selection, and hand it to the staff member behind the front counter. A short wait follows, as your skewers are cooked, put into a paper bag, and coated with salt and a Sichuan spice mix. Simple and delicious.

When I visited I opted for the chicken rib, pork belly, and crumbed basa fillet. I was exactly what I was craving for a late night snack on the way home from the city. If you’re thirsty, there’s also a small selection of drinks like iced tea and soda.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
