snapshot/dessert: i recommend KFC egg tarts
KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN
multiple locations in Taipei
website: www.kfcclub.com.tw/ Chinese only
I'm sure anyone reading this from the states is thinking, "Whaat? Egg tarts from KFC??" I know, I know. It's sort of strange. Actually, Kentucky Fried Chicken here doesn't even have coleslaw and mashed potatoes. Instead- it's portguese egg tarts.
But they weren't half bad. Surprisingly good even.
My friend brought some over when visiting and they were still warm. I think egg tarts are best eaten warm, when the flaky crust and silky yellow custard still has that melt in your mouth texture. The carmelized tops give it that creme brulee look and taste- and some of the egg tarts had red bean in them.
They weren't that good the next day after being in the fridge and the crusts got all soggy. So eat them hot.
And I like KFC's fried chicken too. They have original and crispy, though the crispy here is a bit spicy.
So mashed potatoes and coleslaw or egg tarts? Which one would you rather have with your fried chicken?
