We decided to eat at Popeye’s when we were in Sunway Pyramid. The crowd was not as busy as McDonald’s so we thought of giving it a try. I ordered the Shrimp set which came with coleslaw, biscuit, mashed potatoes and a carbonated drink. Hubby ordered the 3pc Chicken set which also came with coleslaw, biscuit, mashed potatoes and a carbonated drink. The portion was ok for me although some of my friends who had tried complained it was small.
The biscuit was actually big, like a bun but tasted like a biscuit cum muffin. I liked it as it’s different, although a bit dry. The shrimps were kinda jelak for me (TGIF’s shrimp tasted much better). I think they use plain flour for the crispy skin as that’s what I tasted. Same goes to the chicken, crispy but tasted like flour. Overall, it was oily too. Coleslaw tasted so so only but I really liked the mashed potatoes, different yet tasty. Probably we are so used to KFC; hence we just didn’t know how to enjoy Popeye’s. It’s just not our cup of tea ;-)
The bill was RM27.20 which is kinda costly for me. We normally spend less than RM20 at either McDonald’s or KFC for a meal of 2.
