From their recent press release: “Made by coating a juicy, hand-breaded Extra Crispy chicken filet with special Cheetos sauce and placing it on a toasted bun with mayo and a layer of crunchy Cheetos, the Cheetos Sandwich will give you a blast of craveable Cheetos in every bite.”
Load up and then, load up?
Look a these guys taking out a full page ad to make a wholly unsubstantiated and unproven claim.
Rest assured good people, we are on the case.
Purveyor: Prince of Wales, London, England
Menu Item: Southern fried chicken burger, gem lettuce, tomato, red onion, cholla bun, chips
Squawk: The bun on this one is soft and not too sweet. The chicken portion is generous with two breast schnittys fried in a crunchy crumb. Not your typical Southern Fried chicken but hot and crunchy which made us happy. Bonus point for crunchy and non-oily crumb and temperature of the fillets.
Buaawk: The chips were okay but a bit chewy for some reason. Could have done with some slaw to give it the true Southern appeal we are used to. No real memorable sauce.
We haven’t checked with General Tso, but apparently, “chick,” or “chicken,” is slang for prostitute in Chinese. So be careful what you order over there. (We heard it was dog.)
Authorities are investigating a Shanghai-based fried chicken chain for possible violations of social order over its sexually suggestive name – “Call a Chick” – and menu items, the Shanghai Daily reported on Tuesday. The newspaper said the restaurant offered menu items that included “virgin chick” (spring chicken) and “chick’s sex partner” (beverages), among others. It also ran a suggestive promotion slogan titled “Satisfying all your expectations over chicks.”
The newspaper said Call a Chick first came under fire in the western province of Sichuan when a woman complained to the media after her 8-year-old son kept asking her its meaning. The Shanghai Industrial and Commercial Administrative Bureau said it had launched an investigation, the newspaper said.
“The content involved could violate social order,” it quoted Li Hua, deputy director of the advertisement department of the bureau, as saying.
Laws ban advertisements that undermine public order or violate ethical standards. Offenders allegedly face fines of up to 1 million yuan ($145,135) and can have their business license revoked.
Menu Item: We’re calling it the VB Burger, for Very Beautiful.
Price: All we know is that longneck makes it a great value. Full stop.
Squawk: Do you have to ask?
Buaawk: Nothing. There is nothing not good about this.
