Texas Fried Chicken In Ipoh

A week after the Chinese New Year celebration, we (together with friends) visited a church member who was admitted to the hospital. She fell and suffered a dislocated elbow with one arm bone fractured. After the visitation, our friend's grandson wanted to eat fried chicken for dinner. It turned out that he wanted to eat the newly opened Texas fried chicken at SOHO Ipoh. Good! I am always game to try new food.
First, the seniors found a place to sit. In spite of the crowd, we managed to get a table for 6 people. We left the ordering and serving to the younger generation. Each one had a muffin and 2 big pieces of fried chicken. A very filling dinner!
Customers have to queue to order, pay and then wait for your number to be called to collect your food. Everything, including getting your own drinks is self-service.
Wall decor. Texas Chicken has been around since 1952 but only reached Ipoh 2018!
People are very keen to try new food.
Half way through our dinner, it started to rain cats and dogs.
 We couldn't leave because of the heavy rain, so we stayed a bit longer to enjoy another round of the free flowing drinks. 

Run from anything that gives you the evil thoughts that young men often have,

but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right.

Have faith and love, and enjoy the companionship

of those who love the Lord and have pure hearts.

(2 Timothy 2:22, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. If I am not mistaken, we ate the original flavour. I think KFC, Mcd, etc...all have their own distinctive flavour. Once in a while I don't mind eating any of these.

  14. I love fried chicken too but cannot eat too often

  15. I think I would stick with your delicious Asian food. And I couldn’t help noticing that everything is served on throw away containers, with disposable drink cups, plastic cutlery etc. - an environmental nightmare.

    1. All these disposable utensils are not good for the environment.

  16. I have not heard of Texas chicken. Here, we have KFC. This looks really delightful! Very large and clean, too. Self sere drinks is the best! You can go back for refills as many times as you want!

    1. I guess it is okay to eat once in a while! Lol!

  21. So far I'm not a fan... have had it a few times by now but always a eat-and-go kind of situation. Only the 'biscuit' is memorable to me.

  22. I kind of hate to see our fast-food chain restaurants exported to other countries, as they are definitely not our favorite kind of places to eat.
    But the important thing here was for you to make sure your friend's son ate something and was happy so good for you!

  25. Finally food I know something about. I love fried chicken. It used to be my specialty. I coated the chicken in buttermilk and coated it with a mixture of flour and parmesan cheese and then fried it. It was good but so bad for you.
    There is a restaurant here in Tulsa called Evelyn's Soul Food cafe in a commercial district near the airport. They cook every single thing from scratch and so you call your order before you leave to go there. (It is pretty much a lunch place only). One time we showed up at lunch without ordering before and got bawled out. The waitress said that we must be a bunch of overpaid big shots if we could show up unannounced and wait for them to cook everything for us. She said I should just throw you out because you are going to have to wait 45 minute for your food and you are going to get mad and blame me.
    So we assured her that we had lots to talk about. It is really good. So if you ever go to Tulsa, Oklahoma USA, let me know beforehand and I will treat you and your family to Evelyns.
