The local KFC has come out with the new menu offer which I guess is aiming at vegetarians (see attached image). My main questions are:
* $25? For one sandwich, isn't it better to get a whole meal?
* How large is it, because true vegetarians will know that they cannot eat KFC fries because it is cooked in lard, animal oil (at least that how I knosw it, please correct me if I'm wrong.
* How does it taste, because I will most likely never buy one
Comments: I am living in Ireland and considering moving to T&T. I have to say all these complaints about price have me rolling on my sofa laughing. I checked the exchange rate. The prices are CONSIDERABLY cheaper than in Ireland, and the portion sizes are MUCH bigger.
You should realise how lucky you are to get a great sized meal for so little, people here are so poor they can only afford bread and milk after paying bills. I can tell you, that that is a much harder life than paying a great price for some tasty, tasty grub.
My personal favourite is the boneless bucket, and [..] their gravy is divine! I could take a bath in that stuff, even my disabled child who is obsessed about only eating healthy, beige, boiled foods will eat their gravy, fries, popcorn chicken and boneless pieces. He is so thin, and one of his conditions(epilepsy) recommends a high fat, high protein diet as a step towards seizure control!
Also, in Ireland we also suffer from terrible customer service, we have workers taking orders who do not understand basic words, or even the menu items. They faff about for 30 and more minutes, seemingly doing nothing, while you wait. They serve only one person at a time. It's horrible.
I worked as a staff trainer in McDees and let me tell you. If we were even a quarter of how terrible they are, we would have been fired. If I was a manager there I would make them speed up, be customer orientated, and learn to serve multiple orders.
So, in summation I am basically saying, KFC is cheap, and delicious and customer service is poor in ALL KFCs the world over.
Comments: That is what we love... Deep fried chicken. The only people who don't like eating KFC are the ones who haven't tried it yet. KFC should be a national food!
As announced in the USA: Boneless KFC Chicken will be the new standard for KFC and they will no longer be selling boned chicken. I wonder how Trinis will react to that given their nature to 'suck' and 'crunch' bones.
Hmm, that will be interesting. But I am very sure that Trinis will still not care about being served 'Boneless Chicken' from KFC, and I am sure they will be eating the chicken like crazy.
