This is one of my long awaited post. I have the ayam goreng McD picture but not the KFC one. I was wondering when I can dine-in KFC to complete this post. And today, out of expectations, I went to KFC. I actually passed by KFC and was thinking 'erm..since I also want to tar pau...why not treat myself with a better dinner for once'. Before that, let's see the 'review' about ayam goreng McD.
Ayam goreng spicy McD
This ayam goreng McD was once in my stomach. It was taken during the lunch time at McD, Melaka before heading back to KL. I ordered for ayam goreng McD and told the cashier that I don't want chicken wing but chicken breast. And this was the meal served to me with the "GRILL SLIP''. As you can see, it was written with 'xtra thigh, xtra rib'. Ironically, that was the first time I saw such slip. It has then become a topic of discussion between us and we found it weird. Ayam goreng spicy McD is indeed really spicy and crispy. It is crispier and juicier than spicy chicken of KFC. One need not to add chilis on it but can do so if you prefer. As for me, the taste is indeed nice. However, it is not advisable to eat frequently. It seems that the chicken is added with a lot of spices. Thus, we taste the spicy fried skin rather the the meat which seem plain as the taste has been covered by the former.
Spicy chicken, KFC
In comparison, spicy chicken KFC was the favourite among all before ayam goreng McD was born successfully. McD is more well known with the burgers. Since then, the popularity for spicy chicken, KFC has decreased especially among youngsters who love spicy, juicy and crispy one. However, one can distinctly taste the meat as well as the fried skin. Hence, you can actually taste the original meats absorbed with the secret recipe from Uncle Colonel. The spices added is a mild one and the total oil present is definitely much lesser than ayam goreng McD. Therefore, it is still the favourite choice for family, elderly and those who more concern on their health. The original chicken, KFC is the label as well but the disadvantage is the portion is seem smaller.
Judging from promotion activities, McD is a definite CHAMPION. Every one aware that McD has the coupon/discount voucher for saving meals for breakfast or dinner. For lunch, McD has launched the saving lunch meal costs about RM 6.20 (after tax) which is very affordable. McD also have the 24 hours service, drive thru service, breakfast menu as well as attractive toys for kids set. In comparison to KFC, they are definitely a loser. I just get to know that KFC also offers breakfast set but nobody seems to know that or had taste it before. The toys by KFC has never been attractive. Remember people are queuing up since morning before McD is opened to get the collection of toys such as Hello Kitty. Besides, no 24 hours service and delivery are definitely of disadvantage. However, KFC had try to compete with McD by offering the 24 hours service now but I don't see people flocking in compared to McD which is always full with people even at midnight 2 am. That is absolutely crazy!
Saving meals cost at RM 6.00 (include tax)
While I was still deciding to opt for an expensive dinner, I saw this saving meal. RM 6 for a chicken, coleslaw, a cup of pepsi and a bowl sized rice. Great price which is within my budget. The price is definitely a real saving as a normal cup of pepsi costs rm 2.50, rice is rm 1.50, chicken, I do think any lesser than RM 3 and a coleslaw as well. Great package they are having BUT does any one know about this saving meal? I doubt that.
Let me teach you how to enjoy this meal. First, you eat the crispyspicy chicken. When you are tearing the meat in pieces, do it on top of the rice so that the small pieces of crispy skin will drop on the rice. The rice portion is a big one. It has the taste like normal 'oily rice' but not an oily one which taste slightly better than plain. After you eat your chicken, you will feel a bit full but still lacks on something. When you take few scoops of rice, you will be full already. When you continue taking the rice, you will say 'omg..when I can finish this rice. It is so full.' Then, you started to feel the rice is little pain. So, pour the coleslaw and mix with the rice..This can avoid you from not eating the coleslaw later. When you finish the rice, you will say' finally, I finish the meal. It is so worthy'. Then, when you look around, you will notice 'Oh no! There is still a cup of pepsi@@~~'. Haha..
So, KFC or MCD?? What's your choice?
