KFC O.R. Chicken Chop with mushroom gravy

I passed by the newly relocated KFC at KLCC with Jeanie a few days ago. I haven’t eaten for 24 hours prior to this (we were down with a bug) and was quite keen to get started. I noticed they have a new promotion going on – the KFC O.R. Chicken Chop with mushroom gravy.

The latest version!

I remember having KFC’s O.R. Chicken Chop back in 2006 so I was keen to check out the new and improved version. We both ordered it and this seems to be a whole different incarnation. The platter of the good stuff came with a chicken chop, some potato wedges, sweet corn kernels and mushroom sauce served on the side.

This is KFC’s ’06 varient – you can tell by the smaller photo – that was the standard size in my blog back then. :)

Chicken chop is a uniquely Malaysian dish – created by Hainanese cooks back when the British ruled the lands. However, it has become a standard feature in a lot of places now. KFC’s variant is slightly better – it’s also de-boned so you can eat the entire drumstick (chicken chop is always made with a drumstick) but it’s battered and fried in the tradition of KFC’s Original Recipe.

The KFC O.R. Chicken Chop (circa 2011) is very crispy on the outside and retains the tender chicken juices on the inside. The have also improved on the mushroom sauce this time around. I like how it’s served on the side so you can decide how much you want on your chicken chop.

However, the best part about the KFC O.R. Chicken Chop is the addition of sweet corn kernels. I love sweet corn and this provides a whole new dimension to the dish – there’s a sweet component when you shovel some of the corn into your mouth and it goes very well with the chicken chop – a very nice touch!

The KFC O.R. Chicken Chop with mushroom gravy combo retails for RM 9.90 with all of the above and a drink of Mountain Dew. It was so good we finished everything except for the potato wedges (my stomach has shrunk during the 24 hours without food).

The KFC O.R. Chicken Chop with mushroom gravy is a wonderful option when you pass by a KFC outlet the next time. It’s quite different from their 2006 incarnation and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

…it’s great comfort food! :)

The Coffee Bean Hazelnut Ice Blended and Latte

The Coffee Bean just came out with a new promotional drink (I should
know, I’ve been going there every day for the Wi-Fi) called Hazelnut.

Hazelnut comes in two forms – ice blended and latte, the classic hot and cold beverage options.

This is what the ice blended hazelnut (RM 12) looks like.

cbtl hazelnut latte

This is the hazelnut latte (RM 11).

It is basically coffee with hazelnut overtones. It’s nice for a change, coz I just usually go for The Ultimate EXTREME.

Burger King BK Lamb Promotion

Burger King has two outlets at KLIA – there is a large one in the public accessible area and other one adjacent to Asian statioN
inside the main concourse. The departure lounge BK shares the space
with Asian statioN with a common seating area though I’m not sure if
the two establishments are related.

bk lamb promotion

I saw a BK Lamb Promotion for RM 12.90 and decided
to order the meal since Burger King doesn’t serve lamb / mutton so I
thought it was pretty unusual for them to have a lamb meat based
burger. I haven’t seen a BK which serves lamb, so I just had to check
it out.

bk lamb meal

This is what the BK Lamb Promotion meal looks like – there’s the
Burger King lamb burger (wrapped in a BK wrapper that’s labeled
“Special”) with the standard medium fries and a medium coke. I’m not
sure if the BK Lamb Promotion is just available in the KLIA Burger King
or in other outlets as well.

Here’s a shot of the BK Lamb Burger – it’s a long
(as opposed to round) burger and the bun looks like the ones they use
on their sandwiches. It took longer than usual for the burger to come
out (also ordered three other burgers to bring back to Kuching for
friends since we don’t have BK over here) compared to the standard menu
items.

bk lamb burger contents

The contents of the lamb burger doesn’t exactly look
appetizing…there is a slab of lamb coated with thick black pepper
sauce, tomato slices and chunky lettuce which keeps on dropping out of
the burger.

It might not look like much, but the taste of the burger is excellent! This is what a proper Prosperity Burger
[sixthseal.com] should taste like! I love the lamb meat – it’s a nice
change from the usual suspects…the Chicken, Beef, Fish fast food holy
trinity.

It’s a great burger, flame grilled BBQ style like most of Burger King’s offerings.

Mmm…lamb!

Nestle Fitness Promotional Giveaway @ Kenanga International, KL

I saw this Nestle Fitness cereal promotion going on at the ground
floor of Kenanga International (office building where I work) when I
came in this morning. There were two girls giving away cereal – got
them to pose for a photo, my apologies for the quality – I used force
flash to avoid motion blur.

The cereal they were giving out for free – Nestle Fitness and a
“Save RM 1.00 with a purchase of Nestle Fitness, Nestle Almond Clusters
or Nestle Banana-Nut Clusters” coupon.

Here’s a close up of the Nestle Fitness cereal.

I ate it with Horlicks, couldn’t find milk in the office kitchen.
What does it taste like? Cornflakes, but then everything tastes like
cornflakes to me.

Thanks for the comments on my piece of art in the previous post. ;) I have to start work now, will reply later ya.
