so normally when i’m in the hong kong airport i’m either arriving in hong kong or leaving hong kong. its not often that i transfer through chep lap kok.
and even when i do – its a time when i’m longing for char siu rice or something or other hong kong related. but this time i got this huge craving for popeye’s fried chicken.
when i was growing up, all of the popeye’s chicken franchises were located in, let’s just say economically disadvantaged areas. while i enjoy a good fried chicken from time to time, its not as central part of my fast food diet as burgers or sandwiches. so i never really felt the need to go enjoy chicken cajun style.
it was when i first moved to houston in 2002 that i discovered the wonders of red beans and rice, cajun style mashed potatoes and of course the fried chicken that popeye’s became my most trust brand name in fried chicken. so when i saw the outpost in chep lap kok hong kong international airport, i knew i had to go back. alas, the chicken was lukewarm – and so, were the mashed potatoes and the whole meal was kind of a waste of cholesterol and stomach space.
