USAPEEC ASEAN

Traveling to Japan (or anywhere in the world!) is near impossible right now.  Fret not, KFC Singapore is bringing the Land of the Rising Sun to you this holiday season.

Consumers visiting select KFC stores will be able to dine in a booth hosting a scenic view of Mount Fuji, perfect for that Insta-worthy photo. The picturesque booth packs a sassy exterior, with words like “Do not disturb. I’m currently enjoying my meal in Japan” and “You may only speak to me in Japanese for urgent matters.” The booth accompanies the launch of KFC’s Shoyu Crunch Chicken and is available for a limited period only. Marinated in shoyu sauce, the fried chicken is coated with red breading, seaweed and sesame seeds. The ala carte dish can be upsized to include two pieces of Shoyu Crunch Chicken, whipped potato, coleslaw and a drink. Also available, the Shoyu Crunch Box contains two pieces of Shoyu Crunch Chicken, two pieces of hot and crispy tenders, whipped potato, fries, and a drink.

The new wave of Japanese-inspired fast food was also observed in KFC’s competitor, McDonald’s, when the chain brought back some of its seasonal favorites like the Samurai Beef Burger, the Ninja Chicken Burger and Seaweed Shaker Fries in November.

Long John Silver introduced its rendition of the ever-popular Thai flavors on their ‘Taste of Thailand’ menu in October. The items included Green Curry Chicken made with an assortment of spices, green chili, galangal, garlic, shallots, coconut milk and eggplants, as well as Sweet Chili Wings, Tomyum Grill Fish and Thai Milk Tea.
