For any true fried chicken lover, @basiliskpdx is a pilgrimage we all must take. Located inside #thezipperpdx, Basilisk nails the perfect amount of crunch to breading, without ever being dry. If you're fan of heat their hot chicken plate is exactly 1% spicier than you can handle. Meals don't get much better than their fried chicken salad with a side of hot sauce – noodles, just enough dressing on the lettuce, a soft-boiled egg and, of course, that otherwordly fried chicken on top.
