Foxes Den, Melbourne, Australia
Following the success of its first eatery in the bayside beach area of Elwood, the Foxes Den crew have launched a second healthy-eating chicken shop, this time located a short drive away in the rejuvenated industrial suburb of Port Melbourne. An exercise in playful yet understated design, the interiors are by local outfit Hecker Guthrie and take their inspiration from barnyard chicken coops, featuring raw timber structures, warming canvas blinds and industrial lighting complimented by a zesty orange colour scheme. The menu expresses a sincere, coherent philosophy of healthy eating using local, free-range ingredients that features dishes such as hot chicken rolls with a filling of your choice or chicken curries served with brown rice. Desserts are preservative, gluten and refined sugar-free, while an impressive selection of homemade fizzy beverages are available. We recommend the refreshing cucumber, rosemary and lemon drink.
