Popeye’s Chicken and Biscuit

Before you feel violated, by expecting a positive food blog entry, turn away now.

I warned you.

So we discovered that there is a new American fast food chain that just opened their virgin branch in Malaysia, we had to try it for lunch. You all know that how much I love American fast food, Wendy’s being my current supa-favorite.

It’s located at TTDI, just across of the KFC. What irony. Some more 3 doors away from KFC, there’s a Ayamas outlet.

Back to the story, was eager to try out their wares, so I splurged and decided to add on their RM5.99 Cajun Fries.

And this is what I got for my 6 Smackeroos :


* My finger there for size comparison.

It’s very little for RM6 la wei! I even purposely asked the manager “Is this all the fries I get for RM6?”, and I got a murmur back as an answer. The fries tastes just like A&W’s curly fries, or McD’s twister fries. Just straight. (not gay?)

TMD. I haven’t even mention how slow the queue was. It took me 20 mins just to wait for 2 group of people in front of my to complete their orders. Come on la, this is not Wendy’s where they build the burgers from ground up. These are just god-damn-pre-fried-chickens, OK!

More disappointment for the rest of the guys:


9 pieces of “succulent” shrimps for RM9.90. They are so tiny that my zits are bigger than them.

Then, this is their version of “mashed potato”:


Notice the garlic in the not-so-brown brown sauce. Where got people use garlic as an ingredient for Mash!? Don’t get me wrong, I love garlic, but not in everything OK!

And even the main attraction, which are the fried chicken and “biscuits” are just plain so so only. The chicken was a bit dry, and the “biscuits” are just very very salty scone. Beats me why they choose to call them “biscuits”.

Now come the worst part, look at all the paper products wasted. Why did they have to put a piece of wax paper on every dish? Not environmentally friendly at all.


Here’s the bill, and proof of how much the fries cost:


WIR? No thank you. Sekali cukup. Unless I hear some more good reviews from other bloggers.
