All You Can Eat Pizza Hut!

Just typing that post title brings back memories.

Sure, there are all you can eat Pizza Huts around the world (though many have gone bust), but few compare to the one I went to in Taipei, which is still as popular as ever.

Awesome: Taipei’s Two Peck Fried Chicken!

January 10, 2010 in Best Of, Food, Taiwan, Travel by pacejmiller

I have a new favourite fried chicken joint.

‘Two Peck’ Fried Chicken in Taiwan is possibly the most sensational fried chicken I have ever tasted.  The franchises have branched out like wildfire since the first store opened in 2005, and there’s good reason.

The shop fronts are tiny, but the fried chicken breasts are massive.  I don’t know what the heck they do to the chicken, but the batter on the outside is unbelievable crispy and the meat inside is tender and juicy.  However, it doesn’t have that disgusting oily feel or after taste to it.  And if you want, you can make it spicy for a little extra kick!

According to reports, it’s a secret recipe utilising various Chinese herbs and spices.

The shopkeepers fry the chicken on the spot, so there is a bit of a wait, especially during busy hours, but trust me, it’s well worth the wait.  At only TWD 45, it’s a great bargain and one heck of a snack (or a meal).

Check out the website here – all in Chinese, but the pictures tell the story.  Might try the nuggets next time.

Where to find

There are over 50 stores in northern Taiwan alone, and I have seen my fair share.

Typical shopfront

Unfortunately, I only remember two.  One is just outside exit 5 of Kuting MRT Station (red/green/orange line), and another is a one minute walk from exit 2 of Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall MRT Station (red line).
