In last week’s blog post, we talked about Korean dishes. This week, we’ll be focusing on western fast food. And to start it off, we’ll be focusing on the top fast food places in Malaysia that serve delicious, mouthwatering fried chicken. Some of these places may be as familiar to you as your home, while others may be as new as a stranger you’ve just met. Pretty weird analogies? Doesn’t matter as long as you get the point we’re trying to get across. Now on we go to fried chicken heaven!
1. Kentucky Fried Chicken
KFC, need we say more. Well, we actually have to or this section will be left blank and for an article that’s a huge no-no. Many businesses have come up with their own fried chicken recipes but somehow none have managed to beat KFC. Whether it’s due to the secret blend of spices, their experience in the field of frying chicken, or the friendly fatherly face of Colonel Sanders, their fried chicken remains to be one of the best if not the best fried chicken. It also doesn’t hurt that they often come up with new and improved versions of their chicken. Our favourite might just have to be their ‘Golden Egg Crunch’. Fingers crossed it’ll make a comeback soon!
2. Texas Chicken
A strong contender to KFC, Texas Chicken is also constantly finding ways to evolve their fried chicken so that it captures the hearts and of course stomachs of Malaysians. In some ways, it has even managed to beat KFC in terms of long-lasting crunch for even if their fried chicken was left aside for several hours, it still manages to retain its crispy exterior instead of becoming soggy. Don’t believe us? Try it out for yourself then.
Unlike the previous two fried chicken restaurants mentioned above, Marrybrown isn’t originally from the US as it is actually a Malaysian-based restaurant. Bet many of you didn’t know that. And dissimilar to KFC and Texas Chicken that focus specifically on fried chicken, Marrybrown is a jack of all trades. From fried chicken, burgers, and specialty wraps to fish and chips, porridges, and even local delights such as curry noodles. These are only some of the menu options available there. Since their menu is too varied their food can’t be all that good? Don’t knock it before you’ve tried as their fried chicken is absolutely scrumptious. Daresay, it might even be better than KFC’s original chicken.
This name needs no further introduction because who in the world doesn’t know McDonald’s. Popularly known not just for their tasty variety of burgers but also for their seasonal promotions and desserts. And even though the current king of fried chicken is KFC, McDonald’s fried chicken comes to a close second. Some even think that McDonald’s fried chicken is better than KFC’s. Especially their spicy fried chicken that has a kick unlike any other.
5. Uncle Jack Fried Chicken
Similar to Marrybrown, Uncle Jack is also a Malaysian-based fast food restaurant. However, since it is owned by the same company as Giant, it can only be found within the hypermarket. So if you’re ever interested in trying finger-licking fried chicken that’s highly affordable and at the same time need to purchase groceries, Uncle Jack is the one for you. Seriously though, don’t let the sparse menu deter you from trying their food for as the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover.
