Good news for Taiwanese fried chicken lovers! Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken is opening a location in Vancouver!!!
The chain of fast food outlets originating at the Taipei Shi-Lin Night Market is known for its massive (bigger than your face) chicken cutlets served in paper sleeves.
Its Canadian debut incited some serious line-ups in Toronto when it opened in 2015 and now numbers three locations in the Greater Toronto Area and is expanding rapidly in Southern Ontario.
A representative from the chain confirms to Daily Hive by email that Canada-wide expansion plans are in the works. A 1,500 square foot Vancouver location is slated to open at Central at Garden City in Richmond in summer 2018!
Additional outposts in Downtown, Metrotown, and Coquitlam are planned to follow.
Once open, look forward to a menu featuring the signature fried chicken in original, crispy, and BBQ-sauced styles, plus popcorn chicken, sweet potato fries, fried king oyster mushrooms, and house-mixed sodas.
