The First 4Fingers Crispy Chicken in Brisbane
July 30, 2017
When an internationally renowned restaurant decides to bring its delicious creations to Australian shores, we think it’s cause for celebration.
This year, it’s Singaporean restaurant 4Fingers Crispy Chicken serving up addictive Asian-inspired crispy chicken with a handful of punchy sides. After they successfully opened a restaurant in Melbourne a few months ago, Westfield Chermside’s new dining precinct has now been graced with the first 4Fingers Crispy Chicken in Brisbane!
So what’s the story behind this beloved restaurant making waves around the world? The founders of 4Fingers discovered their secret Asian crispy chicken recipe in none other than New York City’s grungy subway scene. It was so good that they knew they had to share it. So in 2009, the first 4Fingers restaurant was opened in Singapore. In a mere two years, six more locations were opened to keep up with the thousands of customers wanting more.
4Fingers now have restaurants across Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia, with plans to expand even further. But here’s the thing – the world has been flooded with crispy chicken retailers in the past few years. Which begs the question, how in the world has 4Fingers seen such enormous success? CEO Steen Puggard puts it down to 4Fingers’ commitment to go above and beyond what other fast-casual restaurants are doing. 4Fingers Crispy Chicken is pairing the usual prerequisites of speed and affordability with higher quality food and better service. This is apparent in the fact that their menu uses locally sourced ingredients free of artificial flavorings and MSG. And the best part is that their price range is still on par with other fast-casual outlets.
In terms of the food you can expect to see on the menu at 4Fingers, besides crispy chicken, they have a lot of other finger-licking foods to offer too. From battered prawns and katsu salad to rice boxes with daily-fermented kimchi coleslaw – 4Fingers is a crispy chicken restaurant with a difference. You’ll also find plenty of hot and spicy sauces to give your meal even more flavour than it had to begin with.
Here at Westfield Chermside, our heads were exploding with excitement about having the first 4Fingers Crispy Chicken in Brisbane right at our doorstep. We can’t wait for the rest of Brisbane to see what all of the fuss is about, so head to the laneway in our brand new outdoor dining precinct before we beat you to it.
