Fried Chicken in Japan


Surprisingly, fried chicken is a very popular dish in Japan. Around this wintery time every year, it’s especially prized as a go to food for the season. Where the best spot is to visit for this festive dish you ask? It’s actually at a food place we’re all familiar with in the states: KFC!

In Japan it’s a staple and the lines are out the door for their infamous “Christmas Dinner” specials. Thanks to KFC’s marketing the holiday has become almost synonymous with the brand. It’s been this way since the first KFC opened in 1970. So, if you ever find yourself in Japan for the holidays, be sure to pick up a bucket!
