A couple of weekends ago (okay, if we’re being honest, it was a month or so ago), I had to fly to Bordeaux city for a work-related requirement. Besides a work trip, it also doubled as a vacation of sorts. Some officemates are currently based in the city and because of them, I was able to go and see the pretty sights of the city (some photos here).
|Mesmerized by this sight (more for the Col. Sanders sign than anything else)|
And then of course, after all the walking (it’s big here in France), we needed to take a pitstop. My friends new exactly where to take me- KFC.
I know, I know. It’s not exactly a five star restaurant, not even close. But KFC is near and dear to my heart. If I have a fling with Manang’s Chicken, I have a full-blown love affair (sorry, babe) with KFC. My heart goes thump-a-thumpin’ for the fried chicken recipe perfected decades ago by Colonel Sanders himself (who wasn’t really a colonel, but that’s another story).
|Drooling right now.|
In Lyon, where I’m based, the nearest KFC is in another town (in Bron), which is more than an hour’s commute away. Not having my mistress close by is heartbreaking so I was ecstatic more than glad to be FINALLY having KFC’s finger-lickin’ good fried chicken in Bordeaux.
|They had long lines too (it felt just like home).|
A bucket of 8 chicken pieces, 8 hot wings, 8 crispy tenders, 4 side dishes, and 4 bottomless drinks is priced at 20 euros (about Php1,816). It’s a lot more expensive than our KFC buckets, but compared to other restaurants, this deal isn’t too bad. The set is more than enough for four (hungry cows).
I am happy to report that France’s KFC chicken is as crispy, tasty, and juicy (and unhealthy) as it is back home. But they don’t have gravy nor rice. Boo.

- If you need a noodle fix, opt for soba noodles. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and contain more fiber and protein than your regular noodles. It’s also high in a slew of vitamins and minerals that you won’t get from your regular noodles. #happyhealthyawesome #alternative #buckwheat #soba #japanesefood #BTMeats - June 26, 2017
- If you’re in the mood for a sweet but healthy treat, chia pudding is always a good choice. I always have a jar of pre-soaked chia ready for snacking in the fridge. Today, I added chopped up strawberries, topped it with almond flakes, and sprinkled on some Stevia and cinnamon on top. #happyhealthyawesome #chiapudding #chiaph #sweettooth - June 22, 2017
- Today’s big breakfast is a Keto-friendly BLTEA sandwich. Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and an egg in a freshly-baked almond flour bun. Believe it or not, all of it took just 15 minutes to make. Including the bun. #happyhealthyawesome #keto #highfatlowcarb #quickhealthymeals - June 22, 2017
