Attention southerners! Expo City entertainment complex is set to open in Japan at the Expo ’70 Commemorative Park, and from November 19 forward, one of its tenants will be a buffet-style KFC restaurant! Ohhhh shiiiit!
For 90 minutes, diners will be able to enjoy all the Colonel’s original recipe chicken they can eat, along with roughly 60 other menu items. In addition to standards such as fresh-baked biscuits and cole slaw, the restaurant will also serve rotisserie chicken, soup, salad, and macaroni and cheese made according to a recipe from Colonel Sanders himself. For dessert, there will be a selection of fruit, cake, and other sweets.
KFC is also promising an atmosphere of Southern hospitality, which in addition to piles of fried chicken means a woody interior and Colonel Sander’s actual suit on display, since the late chicken mogul’s iconic duds are now in Japan.
Adult prices range from 1,880 to 2,480 yen (US$16-$21), with weekday afternoons being the lowest-price dining time and weekend evenings the highest. Children between the ages of 4 and 12 eat for reduced prices, and those under 4 dine for free, which should free up some of your budget for when your kids ask you to take them to the Pokémon Gym that’s also in Expo City.
So wait, they want you to eat all the KFC fried chicken you can, and then force your kids to go to a Pokemon themed gym for children? Japan is so fucked up sometimes!
