Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen @ Mid Valley

Hey readers! Ever thinking of what to eat in a shopping mall beside the usual KFC and McD which are always packed with homosapiens? Why don't give a try for Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen. This restaurant was established in 1972 in New Orleans before is widely established in various countries in 35 years. As in Malaysia, it is quite a new brand restaurant which only available at limited place. 

Yen Moi, Wei Ling, Chui Wei and Siew Hoon

We decided to give a try as we have been walking past this restaurant for uncountable times but yet to try out the food.

Let's have a look into their menu. There are seafood combo, sandwiches and bowls as well as signature side dishes.

Next, there are chicken combo, chicken tenders, chicken meals and super saver meals.

This is their signature spicy mashed potato. My friends claimed that it was a nice one and the best among others in a set meal. What about my opinion? --> scroll down

Wei Ling who did not order set meal ordered the mashed potatoes with Cajun gravy ala carte large. It was an unexpected large portion for her.

Same as for KFC, a set meal comes with a main course, a salad, a mashed potatoes and a cup of soft drinks.

Alright, the most awaited time.. food review. The chicken meat was so so. It was somehow taste plain for me and did not have any specialty. You may taste something different when you eat the skin of the chicken meat. However, when you eat the meat purely, you will find that it is a plain taste. That is a major drawback as the taste of the meat is the major factor in determining the 'wow' factor. In comparison to KFC, their chicken meat is famous for its original juicy scrumptious meat whereas as for McD, their ayam goreng spicy's meat have the taste of the various spices through each bits of the meat.

For the salad, it was nice but still lose to KFC's salad. As for the mashed potatoes, though it offers a new taste (with Cajun gravy) for me which was a spicy which I think I had never eat such thing before, generally it is still not in superior state compared to the KFC' mashed potatoes.

Chui Wei and Yen Moi enjoying their meal. Oh yea, there was a bun biscuit given too. I must say that it was a SALTY biscuit instead. I not sure about others who had eaten it before, but I think it was an awful experience having to eat a salty plain biscuit.

Wei Ling, please open your eyes!!

That's my look in past few months. And that explained the dining experience happened back few months ago. Haha.

Sometime, we need to taste an awful experience to know what is awful. Haha. I'm deeply sorry for having to criticize the food in such a way. However, I still recommend all of you to give a try perhaps the first and the last.

By the time this post was posted, I was in the Mid Valley cinema watching the 'A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET'. Did I need to inform you that I had completed my final exam? Hoooray!!!

KFC standard not only drop recently, it also kena fine for poor hygiene.

Popeyes in Malaysia is absolute rubbish compared to the franchise in the US. Chicken is extra salty..actually most of the items on the menu is especially salty. The americans normally eat fried chicken with biscuits or corn bread. Biscuits are simply scones to the English but what is served here in Malaysia is oddly shaped lumps of salty flaky goo. The Gumbo is even worse. Do yourselves a favour and try Popeyes either in the US or out of the country if its available.
