A Singaporean food blog has reported that KFC has launched these star-shaped shrimp nuggets. They’re going for 3.95 Singapore dollars, or around $3.15 USD.
The move isn’t surprising for KFC’s international outlets. Unlike in the States, where our menus are focused on the chicken, KFC in Asia has a more diverse menu that caters to local preferences. It’s the most popular fast-food chain — easily beating out McDonald’s and Burger King.
The KFCs in Singapore, Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong even serve one of the best egg tarts on the market. (KFC Egg Tarts follows the classic Portuguese baked recipe that Macau made famous)
If only we had all of those here. . . .
