Hello!

Hold onto your nuggets, this news is finger-licking good! Dust off your eating pants because KFC is bringing a fancy, 11-course degustation restaurant to Sydney next month.

In a world first, KFC’s most-loved menu items will be available with a fine dining experience twist. Think iconic KFC items like potato and gravy, popcorn chicken and fried chicken – only boujee. Wait until you see the menu sneak peek (we have it below!).

The KFC Degustation restaurant is being created in partnership with Chef Patron and owner of Sydney restaurant, nel., Nelly Robinson. Here’s how the event is described: “The lavish 11-course menu will take KFC fans on a truly unique culinary journey. From starters that will tantalise your tastebuds, to melt-in-your mouth desserts, fans should expect the unexpected as they experience the Colonel’s finest feeds elevated to new heights in delicious, theatrical, and playful ways.”

But just because KFC is going fine dining, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your dinner in the usual way. Eating chicken with your hands is encouraged!

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the menu:

Supercharged Wings – Cooked over a bed of charcoal, these are not only supercharged but beautifully charred wings

Potato and Gravy – Blink and you’ll miss it! This dish is a marvel to behold as the gravy candle (yes, that’s right!) melts, dip your potato bun into the “wax” and enjoy *chef kiss fingers

Tongue Twister – Don’t be shy, there are no rules here! Pick up your plate and lick off the Colonel’s face to relish the flavours of Kentucky Fried Chicken, tomato, lettuce and Pepper Mayo

Twister Sister – A fresh take on our Twister, this one comes with pearl barley risotto, sundried tomato, pumpkin and last but not least our Chicken Tenders

Popcorn Chicken – It’s the Popcorn Chicken our fans know and love paired with celeriac soup, mushroom gnocchi and basil topped off with an edible floral garnish

La Di Da Drumstick (aka Fried Gold) – Our iconic Original Recipe drumstick dusted with quinoa and gold ‘coz we don’t call it Fried Gold for nothing…

Our Chocolate Mousse – Dipped in nitrogen, these mouthfuls of scrummy chocolate mousse are ‘oh-so-good’ and will literally melt in your mouth.

The full menu is still under wraps, so guest can expect a few surprises.

The KFC Degustation restaurant will be open from April 1 until April 3 (and no, it’s not an April Fool’s joke!). There are sittings being held each night at 5pm and 8.30m at a secret venue in Sydney’s Alexandria. For $75 a head, you’ll get an 11-course KFC degustation with fine wines to match, KFC will be donating all profits to its charity partners: The Black Dog Institute, ReachOut Australia and Whitelion.

So how can you get a seat? You can request a reservation via KFC Degustation and cross your fingers and toes! You’ll be contacted from March 23 if you manage to nab a seat.

  • It’s interesting and the best part of it is that the profits will go to 3 charities. It would be an experience for those who go.

  • Not how I think of KFC. It really doesn’t give med the thought of fine dining. Just fast food.

  • We don’t have a KFC near us so we rarely have it these days. These dishes do sound delicious and I’d be interested to try it. I imagine there would be a bit more expensive than the traditional KFC that we know, so I’m not sure how much I’d be prepared to pay for it.
