Australia’s Biggest Chicken Parma

Holy Fluck Parma

There’s something about Australia’s culinary landscape that makes it a gastronomical paradise. Amidst the range of exotic and savoury dishes, the nation is particularly renowned for its love of a classic pub staple – the Chicken Parmigiana, or “Parma” as it is affectionately known. While this dish’s charm lies in its simplicity, one Melbourne café has taken it to astounding, gut-busting heights. Presenting the “Holy Fluck Parma” at the Third Wave Cafe in Albert Park – officially Australia’s Biggest Parma!

The Third Wave Cafe, a much-beloved establishment in Melbourne, is famous for their innovative culinary creations, but nothing compares to the scale and audacity of the Holy Fluck Parma. Not just a mouthful in name, this dish is a spectacular feat of gastronomy that is created from an ENTIRE chicken.

Yes, you read that right. The chefs at Third Wave Cafe skillfully debone an entire chicken, bread and deep fry it to create a Parma like no other. But the magic doesn’t stop there. The gigantic Parma is then slathered generously with a rich, tangy sauce, loaded with an oozy layer of melted cheese that stretches tantalisingly with every bite.

But what’s a Parma without sides? The Holy Fluck Parma boasts sides of brisket, bacon & cheese sauce loaded fries that are a meal in their own right. As the pièce de résistance, the Parma is topped off with a slow-smoked beef rib that adds an irresistible, smoky flavour to the ensemble. This gargantuan dish is enough to satisfy 4 to 5 ravenous appetites – a challenge that calls out to the inner foodie in all of us!

Yet, what makes the Holy Fluck Parma even more special is its limited availability. This dish is not a regular fixture on the menu but is a prized offering available only this month. The fleeting availability further elevates the allure of this oversized Parma, making it a must-try for food enthusiasts and challenge-seekers alike.

Third Wave has become a religious experience on the Melbourne restaurant scene. Since opening in 2010, we have cemented a reputation as a great neighborhood cafe with a loyal breakfast and lunch crowd. People come from far and wide to enjoy our exceptional coffees and vast breakfast & lunch menu. Then by night, we transform into a bustling BBQ joint, inspired by the classic American smoke houses of the deep south. Today we are proud to be recognised as one of the best American BBQ experiences you’ll have outside of the US.


Third Wave Cafe started as a trendy inner Melbourne café with an aim to grow and so we did. After 9 years, we are one of Melbourne’s favourite American BBQ restaurants with a huge emphasis on slow-smoked meats and burgers.
