Forget pizza, burgers, and hot dogs — if Vancouver’s recent explosion of spots to grab a box of crispy fried drumsticks tells us anything, it’s that in 2020, we’re living for fried chicken.
With so many options all over the city, though, it can be hard to decide where your fave spot is to grab a classic fried chicken sandwich. We can help with that.
The chicken at local fried chicken joint Hi Five Chicken is made without any frozen ingredients, MSG, or trans-fat oil. This means its chicken tastes super fresh, and it is way less oily than other places we’ve tried in the past. Another bonus? It’s 100% Canadian-owned and operated.
And as if you needed another excuse to eat fried chicken, on Saturday, July 18, Hi Five is celebrating the grand opening event of its new Hastings location with a killer deal running from 11 am to 4 pm — two drumsticks for only $2.
Hi Five Chicken’s 24-hour restaurants have been making moves recently across the Lower Mainland, opening up multiple spots serving its fresh, juicy, and crispy fried chicken, as well as thick-cut fries and gluten-free and vegetarian options. And did we mention the spicy sauce? It’s worth the visit all on its own.
The chicken hotspot has already gained a glowing reputation among locals at its locations on Marine Drive in Vancouver and 10th Avenue in Burnaby. Now, it’s opening two brand new locations in Burnaby, on Hastings Street and Kingsway. The co-owners aim to open another 10 stores across the region in the next five years.
A more health-conscious option for fried chicken lovers, Hi Five Chicken’s claim to fame is being the only business in the market that offers baked chicken without oil or breading. Another secret behind its success is that its chicken is freshly roasted and never frozen.
Apart from your classic boxes of fried chicken drumsticks and baked chicken, you’ll find some highly-photogenic (and equally as delicious) chicken burgers, with spicy and non-spicy options. And to go with your main course, you’ll find mouth-watering mashed potatoes, signature thick-cut fries, onion rings, buttered corn, and coleslaw, as well as a selection of healthy salads.
Hi Five Chicken doesn’t only have some killer chicken; it also really cares about the community, too. The 100% Canadian company sponsors local community events, runs a senior discount program, gives local police officers 50% off, and has a gift card donation program with the Canadian Blood Donor Services.
Drooling yet? If you can’t wait to get yourself a plate of fresh, juicy fried chicken, Hi Five’s new Hastings location is open now.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 18 when you can celebrate the grand opening event of Hi Five’s new Hastings location — with its two drumsticks for $2 deal!
