If there weren’t already enough reasons to visit Tokyo, here’s a cherry on top.
KFC Japan has just opened a new eat-until-your-diseased-heart-is-content restaurant at Minami Machida Grandberry Park, Tokyo. Unlike previous seasonal pop-ups that have been limited to fried chicken, this time the whole menu is up for grabs – 50 different items, including original recipe fried chicken, biscuits, pasta, fries, curry, soup, salad, and dessert, as well as all-you-can-drink packages for soft drinks and alcohol. There’re even exclusive items such as rotisserie chicken, and pan-baked potato casserole, and a “Special Fried Chicken Soup Curry”.
The restaurant offers both lunch (11am to 5pm) and dinner (5pm-10pm) services, costing ¥1,980 (AU$18.20) and ¥2,580 (AU$23.72) respectively. There’s even a discounted price for elementary school students, and children under the age of 3 can hook in for free – perhaps childhood obesity isn’t really a problem in Japan… Colonel-lovers get 80-minutes to down as much greasy goodness as they can.
All-you-can-guzzle soft drinks are included in the package but this can be upgraded to all-you-can-drink alcohol for an additional ¥1,250 (AU$11.49) for those who want to punish as many of their organs as is simultaneously possible. This has gotta be one of the best deals in history, considering a pint of beer here in Oz can easily set you back the same amount.
The restaurant’s theme is “KFC home party” and takes on a more traditional eatery décor.
