Everyone loves fried chicken and other than KFC and Popeyes chicken, Taiwan has made fried chicken a very portable snack where you can eat it as you walk and shop. Many people know the XXL fried chicken from all major night markets but J & G Fried Chicken has been in the trade since 1973 and has been serving up their crispy and delicious chicken to many customers.
J & G started with a street sign standing on Jiguang Street in Taichung, due to its persistence in ingredients selection, quality control and constant endeavour for food safety over the past 44 years, J&G Fried Chicken has now evolved into an international culinary brand. With outlets in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong, customers can now enjoy their fried chicken without travelling to Taiwan.
In Ximending, there is a huge outlet selling their fried chicken to customers for takeaway with always long queues.
On top of their signature fried chicken, they have expanded their menu to fried squid, cuttlefish balls, fries, fried mushrooms as well as popcorn chicken. The combo prices range fro TWD 190 to TWD 240 and is very affordable.
The fried chicken and other fried items are fried freshly in batches and cooled to maintain it’s crispiness before packing them into the paper bags according to each order.
The pop corn chicken was quite generous in size but yet bite size enough to fit in your mouth without being too messy.
The chicken is quite tender with very crispy skin which is not too thick. The flavouring of the chicken is not too strong so it is neither too salty or too bland. I would not say it is the best fried chicken I ever had but I would say it is pretty decent friend chicken where you can eat on the go.
