KFC gastronomy goes viral on TikTok


It’s a regular KFC meal – but the fast food chain is trying something else in Australia.

The video also shows customers being greeted with a glass of champagne, entering a room that featured chicken-shaped light fixtures, black tablecloths, and wine pairings for each course.

One dish could be described as “supercharged” wings, served on a bed of flaming charcoal.

Others included chicken popcorn with gnocchi, a gold-crusted drumstick and a dish that required foodies to lick a sauce reincarnation of the chain’s founder, Colonel Sanders, off their plates.

The pop-up restaurant’s desserts look like something that would be served in a 5-star restaurant as diners had a choice of ‘chocolate mousse with popsicle candies’ or ‘KFC potato chips with ice cream’.

Foodies react to KFC viral gastronomic experience

TikTok foodies as well as KFC fans are now reacting to the viral experience with mixed responses.

“Fine dining but the food still tastes and looks like fast food lol. Just a different vibe,” one user said.

“What country is it? We barely have options where I’m from and we had to pay for condiments until recently because they didn’t give any for free,” said a second user.

“Did they really create KFC for the ultra rich?” another TikToker questioned.

It’s unclear whether the fast-food chain will bring the pop-up restaurant back, as fans are split over the idea of ​​fine dining at KFC.
