This isn’t the country’s first KFC buffet. Let’s hope it’s not the last, either.
So, I think the man responsible for hawking fried chicken to millions of people worldwide is, like, a reserve member of the Justice League now.
It’s not the meat that’s pink, but the buns. Which might be worse.
I ate KFC's hideously appealing Double Down Dog so you don't have to.
Oh, and cheese. Let's not forget that!
On November 28, the first "cafe type" KFC will open in Kobe, Japan. And it even serves pancakes and coffee. What does the "C" in "KFC" stand for again?
We've seen beyond the greasy curtain of fast food and discovered how KFC actually makes fried chicken from the raw animal to the final product that gets put into buckets and double downs at their stores. It's basically like how your grandma would do it—except they use an infernal magic machine called "pressure frier."
In South Korea, KFC's take on the Double Down is, well, something else. You might have seen the promotional pics. Let's have a look at pics of the actual sandwich.
Woah. That's just...woah. But as the little Colonel Sanders character notes, it seems hard to use.
Japan is no stranger to unique Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants. There was that fancy KFC bar that opened in Tokyo last year. And today, a very Japanese style KFC is also rolling out in the metropolis.
In Japan, Kentucky Fried Chicken is an institution. So is putting Colonel Sanders in a variety of different outfits, including anime characters, samurai, and school children. Oh, and maids!
Nothing like creating fast food websites that can make your customers feel ill! Warning: this post contains imagery that actually might make you dizzy or sick.
Potato parties, which started in Japan and spread to South Korea, are definitely a thing. Groups of young people order large amounts of french fries and eat them. And bam, you have a potato party! Kids in China just turned these parties into a game. A player versus player, potato-eating battle, if you will.
So good! In Japan, KFC is teaming up with the new Dragon Ball Z anime film, offering DBZ goodies when you order special meal deals. But that's not all.
From December to next February, JAL is collaborating with KFC for what it's calling "AIR Kentucky Fried…
Japan loves KFC. The fast food chain is somewhat of a cultural institution in Japan: whether that's Christmas dinners or baseball superstitions. It's no accident that Japan digs The Colonel so much: the boneless Japanese dish chicken karaage resembles fried chicken.
And for the past few springs, the Colonel Sanders in Akihabara has been covered in samurai armor to mark May 5, the Boy's Day celebration.
