I guess I’ve been eating a lot of fried chicken lately. Whether it’s cheesy Korean style or a serious southern sammy, nothing clogs the ol’ arteries like some deep-fried white meat. Man, my doctor even said I should cut back…so I fired my doctor. And now we’re hanging out at Gdous Juicy Chicken House, this funky Taiwanese fried chicken joint just a stage dive away from Lee’s Palace at Bloor and Brunswick.
Now, I’ve had Taiwanese fried chicken before, and just like Hot Star, this place is known for its chicken steak. So well known, in fact, that it was all sold out at 7 o’clock. So I had to go for a three-piece meal instead. But am I complaining? No way, Jose!!!
Now, this bird was super-crispy, deep-fried to perfection with a thick, crunchy batter…but still nice ‘n juicy on the inside. The fries had just about the same amount of breading, which made for a nice, heavy snack. I ordered mine “hot,” and while it really didn’t have much of a kick, that didn’t stop me from shoving it straight down my piehole, bro!!!
Now, I know what you’re thinking…but no bro, this ain’t a frozen margarita, though! While they don’t put booze in a blender here, they do have a Tea Shop 168 right inside, and you can upgrade your combo to a bubble tea for just one dolla. That’s money well spent in Flavourtown!!!
