From Tai­wan to Yonge and Finch

Thornhill Post - - FOOD -

The name re­ally does say it all. Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken, although not par­tic­u­larly po­etic, cer­tainly con­jures up a spe­cific vi­sion. And per­haps that’s why peo­ple have been go­ing cuckoo ba­nanas for it ever since it set up shop at Tai­wan’s famed Shilin Night Mar­ket back in 1999. Fast-for­ward a few years, and the brand has ex­panded all over the place, with lo­ca­tions dot­ted across the globe. The GTA has a new­bie found at 5525 Yonge St. So what’s the big deal? Think in­cred­i­bly de­li­cious chicken flash fried, avail­able in reg­u­lar, BBQ or (our fave) crispy per­mu­ta­tions. Top it off with an au­then­tic ap­pe­tizer and you’re good to go. Close your eyes and be trans­ported to Tai­wan.
