      From the list, I love Al Baik, Pickl, SFC Plus, and KPOP. But for me, the best has to be Texas Chicken. Their flavours are mild yet different. I just love it.

      Popeye’s fried chicken is no doubt the tastiest. No questions about it. I was so happy when Popeye’s opened their franchise in Dubai. I am a regular here.

      I was once in the mood for something different and found Japang. Wow! I am now hooked to this place and love their fried chicken the best. It’s a must-try!

      Korean Fried Chicken is the best in the world. I regularly visit KPOP Chicken. I also love many other dishes on the menu, but the fried chicken is just amazing.

      I think High Joint has the best fried chicken hands down. It was cooked to perfection but the spicy jalapeno and mango slaw did it for me.
