Oh… finally… finally finally finally…
Yes, yes, yes!!! Oh yeah baby!!! Texas Chicken, yeah!!!
Yeah, this brand of fried chicken is something I have wanted to try for a long long long long long long long lonnnnnggggggggggggg time.
And I finally did, before I made the drive back to Penang yesterday.
Okay, I know… I know… It’s not gourmet food. It’s not fancy cafe big breakfast and whatnot. It’s just fast food.
But it’s fried chicken, man! Fried chicken!
Okay, seriously, I was not here mainly for the fried chicken. Sure, the fried chicken here is miles better than the Colonel Fried Chicken. The skin was much crispier, and the meat was much more tender and much more flavorful.
Oh, another interesting thing, look!
No, not the ‘slaw, you dumb dumb. The spork! Spoon + fork, spork! I’ve seen this before in fast food eateries in the US, but I don’t think I’ve seen this before in Malaysian eateries. You’d have to go to places like Daiso or 100Y shops to find this thing.
I love the spork, I think it is a very useful invention that is the epitome of the Lazy Man spirit. You only need to use one piece of utensil to do the things of two, how awesome is that?? Now that I think about it… why the heck did I not bring this back with me? Craaaapppp!!!
But what I really came for, is this…
Honey Butter Biscuit! OMG this is such an awesome thing! I got mine warm and smelling fantastic and crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and absolutely delicious. This is as far a cry as possible from the pathetic buns of Colonel Fried Chicken.
I was so happy that I finally got to eat this! But as I was leaving, I felt sad.
Sad because I now know I can never enjoy Colonel Fried Chicken as I had anymore. And this Texas Chicken franchise will probably not be making it to Penang, and even if they do they would probably suffer like Burger King. Slightly more expensive for slightly better quality fast food is a concept alien to Penangites in general. To them, fast food is fast food, so best to stick to McRonald’s because they’re cheaper.
