Lee’s Chicken almost made it at #3 on our best fried chicken in Vancouver; it is a (Korean) family owned fried chicken fast-food restaurant. The reason we amended the ranking was the store’s location in Port Coquitlam may be a little too far for Vancouver-proper residents and visitors. Located in Port Coquitlam, the suburbs of Vancouver… this unassuming fried chicken restaurant is esteemed as one of the BEST fried chicken in Metro Vancouver. It is worth a visit if you’re in the tri-cities area.
Juke Fried Chicken – 182 Keefer St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1X4
Good fried chicken in Vancouver but overpriced and over hyped. This is not your traditional fried chicken either but heavily seasoned with spice powder (not the Nashville style spice but a bit like Indian spices). They deliver fried chicken with Foodora.ca which surprisingly remains crispy even when it arrives… but again over priced for fried chicken. (two pieces, thigh and drumstick is $7.25. Portions for sides are VERY small – on delivery at least. Like the container you usually get for gravy.)
This fried chicken shop in Vancouver is often recommended by most “Best fried chicken” recommendations but honestly, it isn’t that great. It’s good fried chicken, not that worth it for the price & taste. Wouldn’t have it on the top 5 fried chicken in Vancouver but a suitable choice if you have a hankering for fried chicken in downtown Vancouver area.
