Drasko's Hot Chicken Signature Sando

The Verdict

Nestled among other top eateries at The Mezz in Mount Hawthorn, Drasko’s Hot Chicken is the creation of Perth-raised journalist turned chef Drasko Jankovic who has long dreamt of bringing the traditional Nashville chicken experience to Perth—and boy were we glad to see that dream finally come to fruition.

“There is something magic about turning a humble piece of chicken into an experience that brings tears of pleasure and pain in one mouthful,” Jankovic says.

Don’t worry, you’ll get to choose just how much pain vs pleasure you want to take on. Much like the grading system at Nandos, there’s five different levels to choose from, ranging from Southern (no heat) to Blame Drasko (extra hot). Real chilli addicts can even brave the off-menu triple hot ‘Bastard Chilli’ which is made with a special Carnarvon chilli that requires a signed waiver to try. 

No matter which heat level you choose, rest assured you’ll be biting into the highest quality ingredients, including free range chooks from the Swan Valley, organic sourdough from Maylands, and fresh produce from local organic and biodynamic farmers. And thanks to Drasko’s experience in the kitchen of Noma (one of the world’s best restaurants), you’ll get fine dining level quality with a relaxed fast food vibe.
