Every time I go to work, I get worked up during lunch time when I’d have to think of WHERE to eat in Saigon. There are a lot of restaurants around but sometimes, I just can’t decide. And since I eat mostly alone because I like walking around the city after a meal and doing some errands, the place should be okay for people like me who eat alone.
I already ate at Jollibee early this week but I still wanted to eat some fastfood chicken yesterday. By the way, in Saigon, the available fastfood places that serve chicken includes Jollibee (PH), Popeye’s (US), KFC (US), and Lotteria (Korea). I don’t think there’s a Vietnamese brand. I posted a question on FB on whether I should just eat at KFC or Popeye’s or Jollibee again. Most of my friends voted for Jollibee but since I already ate there, I decided to eat at the nearest chicken fastfood place — Popeye’s at Vincom.
It’s always scary eating at a mall where you’re bound to find other items you want to buy. I almost went for the Crocs rubber shoes for Sam which costs almost the same as the Nike we bought over the weekend for hubby. Good thing I talked myself out of it!
I ended up with the 2 piece chicken meal and their new offering — gravy for 8,000 VND I think.
Sorry for the bad shot.
Don’t order the mashed potatoes. It tastes blah! Or is this how Southern mashed potatoes with gravy is cooked? I really didn’t like it. On my first taste, I thought that maybe it will grow on me — but after 5 tablespoonfuls, it really didn’t, so I didn’t finish that off.
In between readings of Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10, I finished off my 2 pieces of chicken in no time!
Thanks Popeye’s. But please improve on the mashed potatoes.
