    McManos Chicken Bar

    It’s the secret salt recipe that Dave believes helped him take the award for best hot chips in Melbourne, after radio station Nova100 took a poll in 2019. Of course, the Seddon locals have been well aware that Dave’s chips have been the best since he took over the business 18 years ago. “Customers love the crispy crinkle cut chips,” said Dave. “I tried changing them to straight cut a few years ago and everyone said No, no, no! So I’ve never tried them again.”

    Pompello would like to send the most sincere, big thank you to the local community for the incredible support of our small business during these strange times! When we switched to contactless shopping at the start of the covid-19 crisis, we were fairly nervous that we may struggle to stay busy however 12 weeks on we have been blown away by how much people have supported us in keeping everyone (ourselves included) safe. Thank you so very much!
