Re: KFC in Geneva

JBrady, I thought you were kidding in your original post about travelling to Geneva, until I saw this progress report!

I commend your dedication - Brugg to Geneva and back for a bucket of chicken!!

Went down to Geneva yesterday to get KFC lookalike for supper - my wife wanted it for her mothers day meal. I took 2 large plastic tupperware type boxes in my backpack. I really enjoy reading my book on the train, so the travelling was not a problem.
A word of advice is - do not bother bringing back the Pomme Frites - they do not travel well. You are better cooking some frozen chips when you get home.
The chicken travels fine - 15 minutes in a pre warmed cooker or pop it in the microwave. Better if you tell the guy behind the counter (he speaks english) that you just want x portions of chicken. This is not on the menu board. I paid 31chf for 8 big pieces of breast. (8 piece meal with 4 portions of inedible pommes frites would have been 42chf).
For those of you who like the KFC's chicken sauce/gravy - they do sell this, but it is mixed with the "puree" - which is the mashed potatoes they sell in non UK KFC's. Again, if you ask the nice guy, he will give you a chicken sauce - moins pomme de terre.
It is not colonel saunders, but it is as good as you will get. In fact, I think the chicken is a little better, because the Chic Chicken restaurant is out of the way and they have more time to cook it properly.
Be interested if anyone has been there - it is almost impossible to find on google - perhaps KFC keep it underground.
Someone told me that there used to be a KFC next to Staufacherstr. tram stop over 9 years ago, but that it was shut down due to bad press and swiss gastronomic rejection. (I also heard that Mc Donalds paid for them to be kicked out of switzerland). All rumours.
