Its no secret that I'm a huge fan of Colonel Sanders. His fried chickens are my perfect comfort food to pig out in front of the TV! On all my overseas trips, I try to squeeze in one meal for the local KFC, as I was really tempted to QC the standards and check out the local flavours (though I failed to do so in Korea, kicking myself as I had indigestion/fever on the day we went town). And KFC Thailand it is!
I remembered how Dr Leslie lamented that our local KFC couldn't hold a candle to the Thai ones, so I was particularly excited about this visit, after not so inspiring tryouts in China and Batam. I was at the outlet around brunch time so it was largely empty, giving me the pleasure to slowly check out their menu. But there really wasn't a need to ponder as I almost immediately saw the one that I wished would be on the menu!
Green Curry Rice Set, with small side and drink (฿85)
Deep fried signature chicken fillet with milky green curry, that's a dream come true! Now to be fair, the curry was perhaps nothing special to the locals, and even a little too watery for my liking. But seriously, who cares? Its KFC! With a local twist! Almost licked the plate clean!
By the way, they serve all meals on proper white plates instead of our cheapo cardboard holders. Feels more classy huh?
I thought the accompanying side was a refreshing change as well, good ol tuna chunks with mixed vegetables and creamy mayonnaise dressing. I'll take this over soggy coleslaw anytime!
Chicken Thigh (฿35), Egg Tart (฿25)
Now did Thai chicks really taste better? I tried really hard and even got my parents to verify, but finally concluded that there really wasn't much of a difference. Not that it was a bad thing, as the crispy skin with familiar spices and hot, juicy white meat satisfied my craving.
So glad that they introduced the egg tarts too, as the well-kept quality rounded up my meal nicely. Again, I kick myself for not trying the KFC savoury tarts in Korea. Argh.
