REVIEW: Mother Clucker, Exmouth Market

motherclucker fried chicken

WHAT? Perennially popular fried chicken truck Mother Clucker *finally* gets its own bricks and mortar site, just along from Exmouth Market.

Building a dedicated fan base out of a converted US Army ambulance parked in the Truman Brewery, Mother Clucker churns out tea-brined, twice battered fried chicken hot and fresh, with a selection of supersize sides just as exciting as the main event.

We’d make the journey to their truck for the mac ‘n’ cheese alone (a perfectly crispy, ooey-gooey mess) but the chicken is certainly worth crowing about – all Halal, it’s soaked in buttermilk for a super thick, golden coating.

Lucky enough to sample pretty much everything on the menu, we can say with some authority that it’s all good. Top tip: waste no stomach space on bread buns (though the chicken burger is an absolute dream, smothered in lime mayo), going straight in with chicken strips and wings.

One portion is enough to share, if you’re trying a few dishes, and be sure to test the array of dipping sauces available. Cajun dusted fries are super moreish, and the stew is almost healthy-tasting – a welcome burst of freshness to cut through the grease. There’s a good selection of beer, ginger ale and fizzy drinks to wash it all down with, too.

WHERE: You’ll find them at Flat Iron Square and Hawker House food markets, and keep an eye out at KERB, too.

ANYTHING ELSE? No bookings, so make sure you arrive early to stay top of the pecking order.
