    It's OK. Wendy's nugs are the best nugs anyway.

    And I can get 20 for 6 bucks! 20 worse nuggets at McDonald's is like $10 or something, and they're smaller, and they're worse. It's like someone forgot to check out the competition and priced their own shit out of orbit.

    I ate chicken fries for the first time last night

    and was thoroughly underwhelmed.

    But I'm willing to admit that was probably situational, since they tasted old and stale and dry and slightly warm at best and I'm pretty sure they'd just been sitting out waiting for someone to order them for 15 minutes. Also I was offered no kind of dipping sauce.

    I'll give em another try and make sure I get fresh ones.

    I get the feeling the folks working in this BK felt pretty entrenched. What is the usual chicken fry dipping sauce?

    I like the BK honey mustard. Tastes vary obviously.

    @#pipe do they offer the Fiery Chicken Fries in Canada? They just started offering them here, and while they aren't particularly spicy I do think they're seasoned better than the regular Chicken Fries. Had some earlier in the week, used ranch dressing as my dipping sauce.

  • #pipe#pipe Cocky Stride, Musky odours Pope of Chili TownRegistered User regular
    Nah, regular chicken fries only happened I think for the first time like 2 months ago. They wouldn't come out with a variation so soon.

    also I have no interest in anything labeled "spicy" of any kind. I don't like feeling pain when I eat.

    Food I've never tried but really want to:
    Chicken and waffles with some kind of jalapeño syrup.

    Why have I never had this? I live in the south for christ's sake.

    The combination of fried chicken and waffles just baffle me. I don't understand how those two go together. What's the appeal, what are the complementary flavours, fucking chicken and waffles, man, how do they work?

    The waffles are crispy and airey and hold up to the grease and syrup, they're a good starch support for the chicken

    and syrup tastes real good on fried chicken, just like it tastes good on bacon and sausage. It's an earthy sweetness, similar to honey based meat glazes.

    People who've never tried it tend to be spooked by syrup on meat, but don't have the same problem with honey soy chicken or honey glazed ham.

    I've gotten them twice and they were like you described both times. I think that's just what chicken fries are like. Which isn't surprising. Popcorn chicken is also terrible. Chicken gets more delicious the meatier it is.

    This talk about chicken reminds me of when I worked at this place called Raising Canes. Fried chicken joint. The chicken usually came in chicken finger sizes but this one time. Whoever shipped it out accidentally put one of the hugest chicken breasts I've seen. Asked my manager what he wanted me to do with it and he said to put it in the discard bin with the pieces that had been out too long so it could be weighed and counted as a loss. I decided no fuck that, covered it in flour, deep fried it, and had the biggest juiciest freeist chicken sandwich of my life.

    I actually disagree with that general statement.

    I like popcorn chicken and chicken tenders and nuggets.

    I'll agree that they're good, but the chicken to batter ratio is the worst with popcorn chicken.

    A Wendy's around here closed to get demolished and rebuilt in their new fancy style and reopened last week. I went there for dinner yesterday and not only did they manage to mess up my wife's order twice, we noticed one of the ketchup dispensers had a fruit fly infestation (little baby flies, not full sized ones). After talking with the manager (got my wife's meal comped and alerted him to the problem) it turns out 100% of the workers there are new since the people who worked there before the revamp all moved on and he's having a hell of a time dealing with it all. I'm going to wait a few months at the very least before I go back in the hopes they get their shit together.

    Yeah that's bad. Around here they did a bunch of them, but they did them all one at a time and basically, like, shifted the workers around. So everybody got hit a little for like a year but by the end of the year there were 6 brand new buildings all over the city and I think their turnover in that year was statistically average.

    I've found Cane's to be super mediocre, which I think is actually very bad since they only have the one main food item. If you only have one item then it better be fucking amazing! Instead it is just very bland.

    I'm getting something similar to this tonight now.

    But it will probably be a laughable imitation.

    I bought 50 McNuggets and a large fry last night for ~$13.50.

    They are not very good microwaved, but fuck it 50 Nuggets.
