KFC – A highly cultural experience

Mike and I found ourselves in a new neighborhood with some time to kill, and came across a KFC.  I haven’t eaten at a KFC in the states in years, but for some reason, I wanted to try it here.  It’s the only major international food chain that operates in Vietnam.  This country has no McDonalds, no Starbucks… but it does have KFC.  img_6350

I was amazed when the food we ordered came on ceramic plates with real silverware instead of in cardboard tubs with plastic utensils.


The portion sizes were actually reasonable!  The coleslaw, mashed potatoes, gravy, and chicken tasted just like at home (which I guess isn’t that surprising).

The best part of the meal was definitely the ice cream cone with sprinkles for dessert!

    Hahaha! As a native Kentuckian, I must say, I love it!

    Wow, I never thought I see such a small portion of KFC. I guess it is true that American meals are bigger. I mean, I hear it all the time, but I always thought there had to be some exaggeration.

    oh… so unfair! The KFC in rayong doesn’t have potatoes or cole slaw or anything… just fried chicken, chicken sandwitches and french fries… oh, and some random seafood options. I could really go for a biscuit around now. =/
