Texas Chicken @ 1st Avenue, Penang

I first heard that the first Texas Chicken outletย was finally open in Penang when I came back from my CNY break.

1st Texas Chicken in Penang, opened at 1st Avenue

I don’t normally come to 1st Avenue much, what with this mall being right next to Komtar and Prangin Mall, smack right in the heart of Georgetown. I think the only reason that enticed me to come here was when I had to pay my parking summons at Komtar and wanted to park at a nicer car park, so usually, coming to 1st Avenue means bad news to me…

But… for Texas Chicken, I will make an exception…

Hurhurhur… 2.30PM queue…

What I really wanted was their biscuit, so any of the main courses will do. I’ve had their chicken before. I’ve had their burger before too. So this time, I went for a wrap.

Tex Wrap and Honey-Butter Biscuits

Well, the wrap was… alright, I guess. Probably not very much different from KFC’s wraps…

Looks more or less the same…

In case you are wondering why there’s 2 biscuits there… See I did not go for their set meal. I got the wrap a la carte, and 3 pieces biscuits a la carte as well…

I did not dine in, because the place was packed full. Penangites love new eateries, so I guess this place will at least do brisk business for a few more months.

I tapao-ed (takeaway) but unfortunately, I got caught in traffic jam on the way home. And I was starving. So… 1 of the biscuits did not make it back home with me. Ended up inside my tummy en route…

Would you just look at that??

Oh, how shiny… how crispy… how sweet buttery… oh me oh my…. yes!!!

    • I thought Popeye biscuit was not as good. But then I only had Popeye in Turkey and Singapore. Maybe Popeye Malaysia good. ๐Ÿ™„

  1. Your post really tickled my ribs to hear how the biscuit ended up in your tummy en route. I still feel that Texas Chick is way better than KFC anytime. Maybe few KFC outlets in KL have cooking problems, not their branding. I also LOVE their biscuits like heavens!

    • Chicken wise I think they are both on par. But the biscuit vs the useless KFC bun, KFC can f*** off… ๐Ÿ™„

  2. when i go to georgetown i always park in 1st avenue’s car park and walk to the places around like kimberly street and etc because their car park is nice with ok parking rates and there is always parking available. i think penang people do not like to park there. now your post makes me want to try this wrap.

  3. They are killer biscuits! Chomp, chomp! I have not seen biscuits that good but I have not been looking.

    • Then you probably need to look harder. England is kind of home to biscuits, I’m sure you can find some mind blowing ones…

  4. Luckily, I just had one this morning (two more stashed away for later), so I won’t need to drool over your picture. Actually, I’ve come to realise these biscuits are best eaten when they’ve just come out from the oven (it loses its crunch very quickly) but then we aren’t so lucky with perfect timing all the time. So, now I prefer to take them home and reheat in my toaster oven for that crisp finish! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Hope you didn’t have to wait that long for your order ๐Ÿ™„ The biscuit looks good, but not big. I could probably eat five or six in one sitting. Maybe more.

    Like Reana said, when I was younger I loved the Kenny Rogers muffins. In fact, now I am reminded of them and want to eat them. Rather than fly back, maybe I will try to make them myself ๐Ÿ™„

    • I placed order, then went to another shop to buy sleeping pants, then came back, so the actual wait wasn’t that long. ๐Ÿ˜›

      I don’t think homemade muffins can be as nice as Kenny Rogers’ to be honest. That crust… oooohhhhhh…

  6. The biscuits indeed look yummylicious… wouldn’t mind getting those to try. Ipoh does not have a branch as yet, can only try when I go Penang again next time. I remember = I used to buy the fresh oven baked muffins from Kenny Rogers, sometimes driving all the way to tar pau back to eat, but the craving is gone as I grow older. LOL…

    • I think your girl probably already tried this one out. Ask her if nice or not, then can bring you next time. ๐Ÿ˜›
