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, halal-friendly and ethically sourced. We offer only the best, most succulent fried chicken you can have and it’s 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.


We’re still here if you need us

While we are not allowed to open for a dine-in, Pelicana Chicken can still be experienced at home with your family, friends or housemates. Our takeaway is available via Doordash, UberEats, Easi, HungryPanda, Menulog and Deliveroo, delivering to a large radius of Melbourne’s inner and outer suburbs. We’re also available at Liven Eat Club and RoyalPay Merchant.

To do our part in preventing future lockdowns, we have sanitation stations situated around the store to ensure everyone can stay hygienic, and most importantly safe, and we ask that everyone keep to the social distancing guidelines whilst in store. Our staff will continue to wear masks, gloves and disinfect the store throughout the day.
