A couple of weeks back, before the birth of this blog, we were at Robinson’s Galleria and we spotted Hot Star Large Fried Chicken at the food court. From blog posts and online reviews, I found out that Hot Star is a very popular chicken store in Taiwan which specializes in humongous chickens.
Ambience/Service: Hot Star has a fast food style so they fit in perfectly in food courts. Despite it being there though, their stall itself was well-lit and the menu can be easily seen so ordering was pretty fast and straight forward.
Food/Drinks: Mike, as usual, ordered HS4 – Large Crispy Fish (P110) while I got their specialty HS1 – Original Large Fried Chicken + Rice + Drinks (P110 + P35).
The chicken was big, very big. I wish I took a photo while holding it up but it was fresh out the kitchen which made that impossible. It was very well seasoned and you will really enjoy every bite you take. Although personally it was a little too big and by the time I ate a third of it, I decided to switch plates with Mike. 😛
I am so lucky he is okay with that set-up.
Now, for the fish. If you ever eat here, I wouldn’t suggest to order this one for two reasons. First, fish is not their specialty. It’s chicken, so stick with that. Second, although the fish tasted very well and quite enjoyable to eat, I think I ate more breading than fish. 😦
Value: At the price indicated above, you actually get more than what you paid for. If you are on a diet, two people can share an order! It is that big! It is well priced and the combo meals (addition of rice and drink) definitely works well with us Filipinos.
Overall Rating: The food was very good it was a real treat to see chicken the size of half my face. I would definitely recommend it you guys especially if you are looking for a different tasting chicken. 🙂
