KFC Zinger vs. McSpicy
Posted on

Don’t judge me because I love fast food. Not everyday but once in a while I do need my fix, and most of the time it involves chicken. 🙂
I’ve been kind of obsessed with KFC lately ever since my friend Andrew told me about the line at KFC Aura when it opened.
Andrew told me about seeing three guys splitting an order of three wings (one wing per dude), with six servings of rice, and unlimited gravy.
I didn’t even know there was such thing as unlimited gravy! Andrew went on to describe the insane queue to the gravy station at KFC Aura. I wish I had seen it!

Andrew went on to describe a sign which his friend had seen out of town which actually said, “Ang gravy ay hindi sabaw.” (gravy is not soup) He didn’t have a picture, but I found a similar sign on Google Images.

So popular is KFC’s gravy, there is a 19,000-strong Facebook group dedicated to it.
My favorite KFC are three wings, rice and gravy. Recently I discovered the joys of Funshots through my kids.
As for my husband, he prefers the Zinger, which I decided to try yesterday.

Here’s the thing, I don’t like trimmings. No sauce, no veggies, just bread and meat. So I ordered mine plain.

First of all, I love this kaiser bun. Kaiser bread is marked by five segments radiating from the center of the bun, my husband says.

There is a generous portion of chicken thigh

And to my delight, an unexpected large piece of crunchy chicken skin

I ate the top bun first, followed by skin dipped in gravy, before eating the chicken. The bottom layer of bread I can’t finish.

The following day I decided to try McDonald’s version of the Zinger, called McSpicy.

The bread is OK, but I prefer the softer kaiser bun of the Zinger

Well hello there 🙂

I ordered this without dressing and veggies, so this is what I got—a less spicy chicken breast

Not bad. I decided to make a quick survey on Twitter to see what others thought:

Out of 14 respondents, 10 preferred the Zinger.
Even my husband says, “The Zinger has more flavor, crunchier breading and juicer chicken. I also like the sauce/dressing much better.”
And you?
