All over Kuala Lumpur I’ve noticed 1 thing, it has amazing chicken. You can get delicious chicken everywhere and every style, BBQ, grilled, hainese, and most importantly fried. While looking for the best countries to retire cheap, I ate dozens of chickens. My goal in Kuala Lumpur was to find THE best fried chicken place. I found a chain chicken restaurant called Texas Chicken and its hands down the best. I don’t know how they do it, but Texas chicken here beats the nuggets off of KFC (Get the spicy chicken!)
As a Canadian who is visiting Kuala Lumpur, I can say that there isn’t a fried chicken place in all of Canada that is this good. The closest thing we have is the local family owned Korean fried chicken places (and their chicken is not spicy).
Also the prices in Kuala Lumpur are ridiculously low.
Usually I get the 3 piece chicken deal, and at less than $2 (8 rm)per piece this is where to get your chicken.
The 3 piece chicken is big enough that I can take home 2 pieces of chicken for lunch and dinner the next day. Pros:Amazing spicy fried chicken Fantastic value. The combo gives you a drink with unlimited refills as well as a biscuit which is drop dead good. It comes out covered in warm honey and butter. (I don’t know how I lost 15lbs travelling but I’d happily gain it all back in biscuits)
Cons Slow service. Seriously it should be much faster to get this. Their system is the person who gets your order, also has to put it together. Then that same person takes your money and gives you your change. Slowwwwww.
Also there seems to be a “No smiling” policy. Maybe this is a cultural thing. I have ordered chicken once a week. Nobody has ever smiled at me. Seriously smile. It’s free 🙂
Fries. I’ve had better.
Ketchup. Gross. Don’t use the ketchup it’s a low grade and awful ketchup. Would it kill you to use Heinz?
Bonus tip. The ice cream cones are also a ridiculously low price at 33 cents (1 rm. Seriously 1 rm? )
