Not a great KFC fan, always seems very greasy with too much skin and occasionally some dodgy meat inside.

Texas chicken ( Church’s ) is a refreshing change, good value and a good menu ( IMHO ) . 
Wraps, honey glazed “ biscuits “ , Coleslaw and mash make a nice change. Never had the fries there so cannot comment .

Over 30 years since I had KFC in the UK but liked it then, especially the gravy.

 

KFC in Japan has better chicken.  In Thailand I find it to be way oilier and the chicken quality not so good.  The GF sometimes convinces me to buy it.

 

I have read bad things about the oil used for the street chicken and don't like the taste of it.

For some reason original is not available for another two months they tell me.  I don't know if it is covid related or what is going on with the franchises?  I remember years back the now named Pizza company used to be Pizza hut then????

But well overpriced.

22THB is a competitive price in BKK. There are less expensive one, but I haven't found any that I give the thumbs up to regarding the custard and flaky crust. It's the only thing that I buy from this place.

One of my great regrets in life is that I didn't have my photo taken with The Colonel. I was in Dubai quite a number of years ago, before camera phones were in everyone's pocket, and an amazing lookalike was there at my hotel, in town to promote the brand or open a new store or something. I chatted with him and he told me he had actually been a friend of the real 'Colonel'.

 

Can you imagine the face I'd have gained with Thailand's 'entertainment providers' if I'd have produced a photo of me with The Colonel. I'd have been swamped with admirers. I wouldn't even have needed to be 'handsome'. An opportunity lost.

Hi Barry,Back in the day when I was 15/16 yo I worked at a KFC outlet in a city south of Toronto.The colonel was living in TO and every year on his birthday he would visit many of the franchises in the area.He actually stopped at our branch on his 75th birthday to meet and greet and I saw him large as life. He looked just like the cardboard cut-outs you see now. A big deal for a kid in those days. Seemed very nice to the staff. He also hosted a seminar at the Royal York hotel that I got to go to.

KFC is rubbish here but it seems to be an acceptable restaurant for a first date unlike in the west.

And it is special for Christmas Dinner in Japan.

What? I ate KFC in the week that just gone by. Always order different to suit wife and kid as well as me. No problem whatsoever.

It´s really sick when KFC, a sleazy bad quality fast food chain, starts to get many threads in a forum. Then we know what is important for people living in or interested in Thailand. This is starting to be a big joke!

Apply to become a mod, then you can oversee threads that sicken you such as KFC.

However, maybe best to leave out the words "always order".

Why would I leave out the words "always order"? Allergic?

I prefer Thai fried chicken. That Thais eat KFC is crazy.

 

Have you eaten at KFG in CM? I love that name!
