Well, that's what we think of our first visit to Popeye's at Mid Valley Megamall. The restaurant is pretty small but it has a cheery orange decor and the chairs were nice. Much less cramped than the nearby KFC outlet. (Ahahaha you should know that I'm no big fan of KFC)
We've been told that Popeye's is much better than KFC by friends and colleagues but it took us some months to finally try them. I guess we are not that adventurous when it comes to new franchised outlets.
Our orders of 3-pcs chicken set that came with drinks, biscuits, coleslaw and mashed potato. We added a small cajun fries to our order too. Our chicken were served piping hot, we saw steam coming out from the chicken bits. Awesome! I initially thought that I'd just eat a piece and pass the balance to Zaini because I was feeling a little bit bloated but the crispy chicken and soft juicy meat (compared to the dry, tasteless ones at KFC) were so good, I finished them all. There's no need to put any chili sauce or ketchup, those chicken were flavourful enough. The coleslaw and mashed potato were good too. The cajun fries were nice, the taste is kinda similar to the curly fries that comes with McD's Prosperity Burger.
Talking about the chili sauce and ketchup, you should know that Aminah Hassan supplied those to Popeye's. That's my Mom's favourite chili sauce brand.
Thumbs up from Raimie after devouring his drumstick.
Maybe for our next visit, we'll try the fried seafood. Mmmm.... yumm.
