The Best K.F.C.

Mon Dec 19, 2005 6:28 am

So...

Where do you guys think is the best KFC worldwide?
For me its in Johor Baru in Malaysia, very nice KFC. Singapore KFC has not enough oil and NZ KFC has not enough variety on the menu.

Interesting to hear your thoughts!!!

Fried Chicken in the USA has come a long way in the last 30 years. I don't think KFC is the greatest anymore. I prefer Chicken Express, Church's and especially Popeye's over KFC.

Popeye's is best. Way better than KFC, and those biscuits just mmmmmmm. Oh, and there is one at the CO terminal in IAH, which I could not resist the last time I transitted there, and took a meal on board a CO 753. Succulent.

When I lived there I quickly learned that all directions in Marietta start at the
"BIG CHICKEN". From the Big Chicken head south on 41. Turn right at the big cow to Windy Hill. I always thought that was great.

I once was giving directions to a tow truck driver. I said, "Do you know where the Big Chicken is ?" He said, "Yep, sure do." I said, "Well f**cking forget it, it's no where near there." He wasn't amused.

Canadian KFC is much better than the American stuff. Not sure why, but it is. This means that we only have it about twice a year, which is plenty! Had some yesterday in Vancouver....yummy!

Here in Medellin we only have one KFC, and while it's pretty tasty, it's basically impossible to access the store. The long lines on an average weekend simply make you turn away. It's not worth it.

In Bogota I also tried it a couple of times, and good, but nothing extraordinary.



Best KFC in the world? I believe not in Colombia.

It isn't the one right down the street from me. They never have chicken ready; never have the sides ready; rudest employees I've ever seen.

I have another one about 15 minutes away that is really, really nice-good service, food is alway up and ready.

I don't know if there is such a thing as the "Best K.F.C. in the world", to be honest.  Smile

I don't know about the best KFC in the world. I personally prefer Popeye's, but I'm confident that the worst KFCs are in Iceland. I don't know how you can screw up fried chicken, but chicken from the elementary school cafeteria is better then the KFC offering in Iceland.

KFC is very popular in Poland, too. In Warsaw you can see them everywhere, some are like 300 m from each other!

And while being a student back in 1992, I worked in the fiirst KFC branch in Poland, I mean we were the first to open and the training was done by Canadians!

Ok, so I'll share a nice KFC story with you folks:

My dad and I, both Dutchmen, are in London, on the AIRbus connecting LHR with downtown. My dad's on a business trip, and he took 11yo me with him. This is October of 1995, and I have some sort of school break.

Already at LHR we notice two American guys step in the bus, with that we're-the-first-time-in-Yurp look all over them. They were obviously in town for business purposes, in their baggy-JCPenney-200$-suits and those moccasins with tassels, you get the picture..

The whole way to downtown London they're totally flipping on the fact that they're in a foreign land, and that the driving is on the left side and that everything looks so different. Every single remark is obviously made in that characteristic 70dB bass pitch only Americans are capable of.

Then suddenly both gasp, and fall into a three-second silence. And as the other passengers look around to see what's the matter, the two look at each other, and simultaneously proclaim: Dude!!! KFC! We're saved!!

How about the FASTEST KFC... for which I'd definitely nominate the Bluewater Shopping Centre branch in Kent, UK...

No matter what you order, they've put it on the tray by the time you've closed your mouth! Even if you try to "trick them" by ordering BBQ sauce or something, it's mysteriously already in their hand!

Very quick service!

...

gigneil, thanks for bringing a smile to my face with the picture of the 'big chicken'

i grew up in ATL and lived there until 1991, when i moved to ORF. i was born in north georgia, and we'd stop and eat at the big chicken when visiting and heading home (this was when hwy. 41 was the only route ... I-75 wasn't open yet)

but i agree with another poster that KFC in the U.S. just hasn't been the same since harlan sanders died ... back in the late 1960s it was really something special

there is a KFC in the hilltop area of virginia beach, va. close to where i live that i do enjoy, however, from time-to-time ... otherwise, i go to popeyes when i must heed the call of the chicken.

happy holidays, one and all,

Personally I don't much care for KFC- more due to crappy service than bad food. For some reason the people in UIO are crazy about it - IIRC, there are at least 3 locations within 1 km of the stadium downtown for example. Didn't taste any better to me but having delivery available was certainly convenient.

The best one I have eaten at is in Young Harris, Georgia, up in the mountains. Not a teenager in sight in that kitchen, these folks knew how to fry chicken, bake biscuits, and in general do things the way the Colonel would have wanted them to.
