Fighter Chicken opened their East Broadway location in April 2021, following their South Granville location. I was recently invited to try their food as part of an Instagram campaign.

For those of you who want to stay home, they are available to order on UberEats, SkipTheDishes and DoorDash. For the rest of us who either love the trek or do not want to pay extra fees, there is free parking within the plaza and the joint is a six-minute walk from Renfrew Skytrain Station. 

If you are looking for a local fried chicken joint, Fighter Chicken might just be the place for you! Their crispy chicken burgers are huge; I struggled to hold it with just one hand.

Do not fret about unnaturally large chicken sizes though, because the chicken burger actually contains two pieces of fried chicken. In the two- and four-piece orders of fried chicken, I liked how it either came as a drumstick or as boneless thighs since these cuts are less messy to eat.

Also on the menu are fish burgers, fries and combos.

Overall, I recommend this fried chicken joint to support local eateries.
