For the longest time, KFC has been lording over the fast food chains serving chicken. But 2012 — inspite of it being the year of the Water Dragon, 😛 is actually the year of the chicken — at least in this part of Ho Chi Minh City.
So in our neighbourhood, KFC has found a lot of competition. Remember Papa’s Chicken? You have got to try their fried chicken and soy chicken. 😉
In the same stretch, there’s Dak’s Chicken and HOF. Can somebody enlighten me what HOF means?
You’ve got to watch out for the opening of these two upcoming fast food chains in Phu My Hung — Popeye’s —
and Texas Chicken —
Another chicken restaurant that just opened is Love Me Tender which boasts of New Orleans style chicken as well as Mexican —
and last but not the least, there’s Lucky Chick —
It’s half-owned by a Filipino so the taste of chicken and barbecue here is very much like what we’re used to back home. A friend attests that it’s like Chicken Inasal. 😉
Yesterday, we ordered some food here and I must say, their barbecue is panlasang Pinoy!
The chicken is delicious too but I really am just wishing for the gravy to taste like something from Baliwag’s Lechon Manok! 😉 But that’s just me, okay?
Am really glad though that Lucky Chick has come into town. So whenever I get my chicken craving — Pinoy style, I know who to call. Below is their contact details:
Filipino and English – 01286433000 – Thess
Vietnamese – 01224429366 – Ngan
Email – firstname.lastname@example.org
SC5 Lo 1 H19-2 Parkview, duong Nguyen Duc Canh, PMH, D7
If you include KFC, that’s 7 restaurants serving chicken within a kilometer. 😉
[Update: Lucky Chick ain’t so lucky. Closed in 2013]
