Notable American fast food business Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has just opened its first restaurant in India’s bustling capital city of Bangalore, creating quite a stir. Does it deliver on the expectations set? That is the question everyone is asking. So let’s jump into the review.
Points to Remember
- It’s a multi-chain restaurant just like McDonald’s or KFC
- They call burgers as Sandwich
Although not very large, Popeyes has four locations in Bangalore and serves a carefully selected menu that includes items like Lemon Chilli Grilled Chicken, Popcorn, Famous Fried Chicken, “Sandwiches” (which are burgers), Rice Bowls, Wraps, and Popcorn. Vegetarian alternatives such as the Cajun Veg Burger, Vegetarian Wraps, Rice, Onion Rings, and Fries are available to cater to varied preferences.
Popeyes is unique because it consistently serves high-quality food, especially chicken. The chicken is cooked to perfection, so it’s juicy and full of flavour. It takes a huge step forward in terms of quality when compared to fast-food behemoths like KFC or McDonald’s.
Popeyes’ elevated and balanced flavour profile was the most surprising aspect of my many trips (at least five before I started writing). The spice level is somewhat higher than average, which gives it an addictive kick and makes you want more with every mouthful. If you’re looking for quick cuisine that never fails to deliver in terms of flavour, quality, and overall taste, go no further than Popeyes.
Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has made a good impression on me, and I hope it keeps growing while staying away from the mistakes its rivals have made.
