Geelong’s Hot Chicken Project takes eggs out of one basket with Ballarat expansion

Ballarat’s foodie precinct is expanding its repertoire with yet another scrumptious haunt – and this one is set to rule the roost.

After the city’s beloved fried chicken restaurant Winner Winner (which was owned by the team behind Ballarat’s Moon + Mountain, Ragazzone and Renard Cocktail Bar) flew the coop, the street was left with a major problem to brood over.

Luckily for residents and visitors alike, a new offering is now ready to strut its stuff.

Okay, enough of the puns.* For now.

Currently located in both Geelong and Anglesea, The Hot Chicken Project is one of the most popular fried chicken diners in regional Victoria.

Renowned for its spicy fried chicken, as well as all the oil-doused goodness we have come to expect from American-inspired diners, the restaurant is sure to appease fried chicken lovers everywhere (as well as the gluten-free).

Buckets of chicken, slaw, pickles, waffles, juicy wings and your choice of heat – the menu cannot be rivalled.

Hatching in the next couple of months, the Hot Chicken Project is almost ready to play chicken.  So get your taste buds prepped.
