KFC breakfast falls flat against McDonalds

Seriously, we don't believe that the KFC breakfast could fare better than McD's. Though we're fans of both McD and KFC, but for the breakfast? Hmmm... So on one early Saturday morning, we decided to set off to KFC @ Kuchai Lama to fulfill our KFC Challenge Episode 4 : to take a bite off their KFC breakfast. :p

We have a love affair with McD's breakfast menu, so we're rather cynical about KFC's breakfast menu actually. But after reading 2.0 Silent Whisper saying that KFC breakfast is not that bad, that the KFC Egg Wrap is good, we trust you buddy! Blogger's trust! With the recommendation buried in our thoughts, we drove to the big big KFC at Kuchai Lama which sits just right next to Pizza Hut in the same building.

As soon as we placed our orders for 2 sets of KFC Egg Wraps, we kinda had the whole KFC for ourselves. Nice place, really... but it's a little bit... erm...you see for yourself. Because this is what we saw when we turn to our right...





And to our left...


WAH!!!! Nobody wan arrrr???!!! Either KFC has such bad reputation for its KFC breakfast or the marketing for the KFC breakfast is waaaaaaaaay below horrible. Due to the cold response from customers, the staff there didn't even bothered making anything from the menu in advance. So we gotta wait for our food to arrive...

Food came kinda quick actually, which is niceeeee. First impression of the Egg Wrap? Wah... looks a whole lot smaller than the one we saw over at Silent Whisperer's post. But the Egg Wrap is very freshly made, and it came to our hands steaming HOT... Oh yeah... Check it out...



Lookin' good? Haha... It tastes good too! The Egg Wrap is actually this really thin bread ala popiah (which KFC has actually used before in their menu on some items that never made it to the regular menu), used to wrap around the chicken meat that are all shaped like rods, some eggs, some lettuce... and oh, I can see a dash of black pepper, and of course... the lifesavers, my favourite mayonnaise and cheese!


All sets come with a choice of either coffee or tea. Superhero W took the coffee, which is labelled to be Arabian coffee, while Superhero S took the tea...which is not Boh, not Lipton, not Twinnings, but something else which I cannot recall (its a black tea :) ). The tea is more thick, not to mention more bitter than McD's... But one thing we noticed, KFC's packaging of the cups look sooooo much better than McD's cups! :p

The verdict? The KFC Egg Wrap is really good. It's worth a try. But it's not something we would want to have on a regular basis, because with a steep price of RM7+, it's actually kinda expensive. We can have a healthier meal at Subway's with only RM6.


Or even our all-time fav McD breakfast too...



So, is KFC breakfast better than McD's? We won't say it's better, but we can safely say that McD's menu for its breakfast definitely wins hands-down. KFC needs to improve on its breakfast menu because we don't think it's sufficient to survive only on the Egg Wrap... which is the only thing we'll eat because the other sets on the menu are not worth mentioning. :p

When I was reading this post, my heart actually beat quite fast because I was worried that you might complain on the Egg Wrap! *phew*

Luckily you said it's nice, haha!

Still, agreed on many points in your post. KFC definitely needs to improve their marketing, breakfast menu & price, and others..

Too bad Melaka doesn't have any Subway, orelse I would visit'em frequently.

Haha...don't worry, yung. We trust your taste. If you mention that the Egg Wrap is good, then it should be good.. Hehe.. :p

Yeah, too bad Melaka doesn't have Subway. But dunno Melaka ppl can accept it or not. Most ppl still like to hang out in kopitiams in the morning hoh..

yep.. mcD still wins in my book too...

i'm just wondering if they'll have some malaysian breakfast there (wit some western twist, of course)..

nasi lemak pedas wit mcD chicken?? or roti canai wit black pepper gravy (?????) and apple pie...


twosuperheroes said...

WOW...cool suggestions there, KaV. I suppose nasi lemak pedas with ayam goreng McD IS possible and if they do, we just have to pray that they serve it with super duper sambal sauces.

Roti canai with black pepper gravy is kinda curious, haha...I can't imagine how it's gonna taste like!?! But anything with black pepper should be good. :p
