which came first?

Posted in: General

There’s a small eating establishment not far from where I live called ‘the Chicken Palace’ . It’s long been the source of wonder for my housemate and I. Which came first? The chicken or the palace? The building itself has some roof decorations which are akin to turrety-type things – did that inspire the name? Or was there just something about the corner of Rosamund St and Ballarat Rd which made someone think “Here be the place for my palace of chicken”. It’s just across the road from a hall of bingo and certainly within the vicinity of the local mart of K. It never fails to make me wonder.

    I think know the place you are taking about – it’s across the road from a really old second hand furniture store? Well, if I’m right about the location, then that Chicken Palace isn’t very old at all and I’m pretty sure that was the first thing that went in to that block of shops.
    So… maybe the owner of the Chicken Palace had a say in it’s oddly shaped building!
