The diary entries of a little girl nearing 30! - Page 396  

post #5926 of 15119

KFC is huge in Asia. The variety here is pretty good, and the chicken is of fairly good quality. In twenty two years of living in the US, I stepped foot in a KFC perhaps a grand total of five times. In four years here, I've gone to a KFC at least eight or nine times...

 

But, I must say this as a public service announcement: fast food will make you fat and die early.

That is if you eat it everyday ;).

Fastfood restaurant in Asian countries seems to be better than the fastfood in US at least. Things might have changed, but back then, fastfood was more expensive than the normal food. I don't like the KFC around here, not very crispy and tasty, but back in M'sia the KFC food was delicious.

Really? I've only ever seen the George St. KFC still does it, seemingly because of the sheer concentration of Asians in the city.

 

When I go to KFC I tell them: "Give me the maximum amount of chicken thighs and drum sticks that your policy allows."

lol im not 100 percent sure :P but i think i saw it havent been there for ages........

Part of the reason it's so tasteless now is due to this "health consciousness" movement. I just can't accept that McDonald's is the one to blame primarily over, say, parents and individuals. Ever since they changed oils at McDonalds for instance, the fries have tasted awful. It's always good to have healthy choices like salads and whatnot, but with control and moderation you don't have to try to make everything into stuff it's not. Have some greasy fries once in a blue moon and enjoy them instead of having nasty cardboard fries every day.

It's an actual food chain, like KFC. But IMO better. I really love the beans, rice and gravy combo with chicken ;).

The best fast-food fried chicken I've ever had is from Raising Cane's.

 

http://raisingcanes.com/

 

It's pretty rich though. I have to be exceptionally hungry to be able to go there, and once I go there I'm not hungry again for like a week. Damn it's good though.

There is a place in Sydney that does all you can eat Wagyu beef / sashimi, etc for around $60 per person. It's all high quality stuff too.

 

For me that is a kind of food nirvana.
