Pelicana - Authentic Korean Fried Chicken Since 1982



Authentic Korean Fried Chicken Since 1982

Since opening our doors in 1982 in Daejeon South Korea, Pelicana has single-handedly redefined what we know as ‘KFC’. We’re currently South Korea’s largest franchise with 3000 stores worldwide and, in May of 2019, we came to Melbourne.

All of our ingredients are hand-picked and ethically sourced. We offer only the best, most succulent fried chicken you can have: it’s halal-certified and made to order! Each piece of chicken is well seasoned and marinated for 48 hours so that we can pack as much flavour in as possible. Along with the Pelicana brand we’ve brought all 11 of the special sauces to Melbourne; including our secret spicy, sweet and savoury signature glaze.


Taste The Difference

Along with the chicken, we’ve created classic and innovative Korean dishes that are only on offer in the Melbourne store. Our mission is to continue to serve quality, fast, cooked-to-order food to Australians, as we have done for the last 36 years in Korea.
