They use broasting (a trademarked combination of pressure cooking and frying) to give you "fried" chicken. If you know only KFC, then it will be disappointing for the inferior crispiness of the skin. Also, I found it less juicy than fried-in-four-minutes chicken, from KFC or nearby LA Chicken.
Still, there is really no comparison because the styles are too different. When you go, just try to turn off your expectations and try something new.
Portion is atrocious. When did chicken parts shrink? Or does KFC have dibs on big fat chickens?
5-piece Combo ($15.49) is for five pieces legs/thighs, macaroni salad (it's the only kind, apparently), and fries.
- Fries are actually really decent! And dusted with the same curry-ish spice as on the chicken. Spicing is quite nice but a bit mild / tame for my personal taste. Not just straight salty, though, which is nice.
- We at our chicken pretty much right when it came out. Missing the same crispy fun as "regular" fried chicken. More like what you can do at home without any fancy coating on your chicken.
- Meat didn't seem to be as juicy as freshly fried KFC. Skin also seemed less oily.
- Macaroni salad was sort of... bland and yuck. We didn't finish it. TIP: Don't buy the combo. Just go for chicken only.
- Choice of pop comes with your combo. I picked the weirdest one, which was a Pakistani cream soda. It's green. It's also normally $1.50, which is the priciest soda they have in the fridge.
TIP: If you want white meat, there is an option to replace dark with white for 15 cents per.
