The Asia Trip: McDonald's Taiwan - Chicken McCrispy

Ordering at McDonald's Taiwan
I went to McDonald's Taiwan inside the Taipei Zoo, the largest zoo in Asia, and roughly about $2 for admittance (which has to make it one of the cheapest ways to spend a day in Taiwan).  While there, I tried the Chicken McCrispy, a value item menu for about $1 if I remember correctly.

Chicken McCrispy
The Chicken McCrispy is a crunchy fried chicken wing served in a little paper pouch.  That's right!  McDonald's Taiwan does fried chicken! It was pretty good too; nice and crunchy but not too greasy.  The chicken was suitably moist and taste inexplicably fresh for lack of better word.  Maybe I just got lucky?


  1. Hmm...since it's just the wing, was there a good amount of meat? Looks like a lot of breading on that, or maybe is because it's up-close.

  2. Wow, that's so cool. I want to try!

    Oh and btw to answer your question: Yes, I do all my own artwork. :3

  3. @Anon: There was a fair amount of meat. Not too much breading, no.

    @Rate: I'm pretty sure McDonald's in several Asian countries sell fried chicken.

    Your artwork is pretty good!

  4. Mhhmm. That looks pretty good. Asians love their fried chicken. KFC is the only American fast food chain in Vietnam (they also have Lotteria).

  5. @Tania: Pics or it didn't happen!

  6. I was wondering if some of the McDonalds Chicken breasts still have the gizzards? I remember as a kid in the late 90's I ate a piece of chicken breast at a Taiwan McD's and flipped it over to find "BRAINS!!" I recall only eating legs from then on.

  7. Hm... I'm glad I didn't have that problem but I only had one piece.

  8. Please watch the news at the link below, this crispy chicken is very unhealthy, has been reported in news...
