KFC in Dublin & Cheap Eats

For a few months, I pondered the idea of starting a fast food review series. I wanted to compare fast food from different countries to the United States. I used to go to McDonald’s often when I first got to Dublin. I noticed major differences. Here McDonald’s food tastes less salty, sugary, and fatty than American eateries. It’s a good thing health-wise but its just less fun and bland in reality. (Though in general, I dislike McDonald’s, Wendy’s all day every day <3)

This fast food review idea seemed smart, but NO! πŸ™…πŸ½β€β™€οΈ I got a huge pimple on my forehead after trying KFC last week, so no more fast food for me lol. Still, I think it’d be cool to try out inexpensive food spots in Dublin and share my thoughts. I have one place in mind for my next meal out, Brothers Dosirak — a Korean food restaurant that’s incredibly cheap.

I think KFC tastes like Taco Bell in Dublin, but maybe I only have this opinion because I ordered a chicken burrito. Surprisingly, the burrito had a whole chicken breast in it; I struggled to finish it. It also had rice, salsa (a sad one), and beans folded into its soft flour tortilla shell. The flavor was sweet and a bit tangy. The fries tasted good, nicely cooked and simple. In truth, they were a little bit of a let down comparatively. KFC fries in the U.S. are flavorful, orange-tinted, black pepper coated wedges of perfection.

Still, KFC beats McDonald’s in terms of flavor in my book. Above all, I’d rather have a healthy hearty meal than fast food. ❀
