I find it curious that KFC doesn’t seem to be all that popular in Taiwan. In the PRC, a KFC sits on practically every block in the major cities, but here they are few and far between. Anyone know why? Do Taiwanese not care for fried chicken, or is it something they just get at the night markets?
I’m not a huge fried chicken person, and being from New Orleans, on those rare occasions when I do eat fried chicken, it’s Popeye’s or bust. That is the best thing about Hong Kong Int’l airport. I also remember Beijing used to have a Popeye’s, but that was five years ago. I don’t know if it’s still there. I won’t hold my breath waiting for Popeye’s to appear in Taiwan, although the Taipei Cajun Food Festival last year raised my hopes.
