Taiwanese TKK Fried Chicken


After a tiresome, hungry and slightly disappointed afternoon on day 4 in Taiwan (I’ll tell you what it was later in another post here), we proceed to the nearby Eslite Xinyi Store for lunch. Our main agenda was TKK Fried Chicken 頂呱呱 (ting kua kua), a famous Taiwanese fast food fried chicken chain restaurants.

I expected the sweet potato fries to be crispy/crunchy but they’re not. They’re nearing to soggy-kind-of-stage texture. It feels like eating sweet potato! (Haha) Nothing special.

Gold nuggets are bite-sized chicken. You can call it popcorn chicken if you want. They’re okay.

I was salivating but the first bite was disappointing and so was the next and next. The chicken was so overcooked. The outer layer was so tough and the spices did not infuse into the meat. 🙁

All in all, the lunch was a let down. I’m eager to try another TKK shop the next time I’m in Taiwan though. One thing, the staffs were friendly and I love the orange-yellow theme.
