Maybe that's the smoking gun on why there isn't any KFC in CH!

I sometimes take a trip down to Geneva from Brugg (2.45) - with my GA it is free- this is virtually the same as KFC. (ask my son).
Fried Chicken - bd du Pont-d'Arve 28 - 1205 Genève. About 8 minutes from the Gare Central - Get tram number 13 to Pont D'Arve. It is hidden in a very small arcade shopping centre.

I see this place is still there, or is it the same place?

"Restaurant Chick-Chicken"

http://tel.search.ch/geneve/boulevard-du-pont-darve-28/restaurant-chick-chicken
Has anyone eaten here lately?

Is it still good?

I feel like taking the family for a drive!

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Yeah I've been there the other day. Great service, and great chicken. Nearly as good as KFC (but the coating and result is darker). However, and that is for me a good thing, I don't get sick from eating their chicken.

I read this forum thread and thanks for this topic as I would never have tried it (the logo is so tacky I discarded the place). Usually KFC makes me sick within minutes, after 15 I must "relieve" myself, I'll pass on the details. In Japan the KFC didn't make me sick, but in Geneva, in Romania, both made me sick and running for my life trying to find a half-decent toilet.

Anyway, Chic Chicken doesn't do that to me and is great tasting. I went friday evening and returned sunday (yesterday) evening. Both times taking more than needed, rewarming the next day. I pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees, leave the chicken 8-10 minutes and it's even more crispy than when out of the restaurant... I left 150.- there in three days , but I'm loving it. I'm warming the oven as we speak... can't wait for the damn thing to pre-heat. I've found that this KFC-alike is just perfect for my needs. So people from Geneva you can go there with your eyes closed, and not let the ridiculous logo (and name) fool you.

Just my 2 cents,
Darth

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Oh and I almost forgot, the chicken burger there is awesome... best chicken burger I ever had. I usually love Roadrunners only for burgers (best in Geneva, unless someone knows a better place, then please pm me ).

So try the burger, it's 8.50 and worth it, 9 with bacon (even better if you like bacon).

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

There is a Swiss version of KFC and I love it! A much healthy and tastier version, if you ask me..

Mistkratzerli - It is available in most restaurant.. It means scratching chicken..

The most famous place selling this is in Horgen

Are you seriously implying, that "Mistkrazerli" is an adequate substitute for KFC?

Must try that, though judging from Lost Inbroads comment it may not match up to Poulet im Chorbli

My point is, that it tastes completely different from KFC. Also, generally speaking, the Swiss don't know how to prepare chicken. It's either to dry (i.e your grocery store ready to eat rotissery chicken) or not done (i.e your market chicken at any random festival.) Either way, they can't seem to get the consitency and spices right.

Heehee, yes I am .. and don't judge me if I think Mistkrazerli is my answer to KFC.. and it is most certainly not dry and tasteless! But not to be mistaken as grill Poulet which some restaurant are selling. It is different type of chicken (???) Those I admit are quite horrible and dry..

Re: KFC in Switzerland?
