Largest Fried Chicken – Hot Star

Have you ever eaten something that’s as large as your face?

Imagine a fried chicken that’s as big as your head, can’t imagine one? Well if you can’t you can see one at HOT STAR Large Fried Chicken. A popular fried chicken store in Taiwan that already has several branches all over Asia and now is conquering Philippines. What are they famous about? Their delicous 30cm long fried chicken that can cover your whole face.

They use the breast part of the chicken that has been cut specially to make it look bigger. It is also covered in thick batter that it makes it thick. They have 4 flavors of chicken for your liking and have few different items to be eaten with your chicken. The chicken may be upgraded to a meal.

I will just concentrate with their chicken since this is what it intrigues me a lot. I went to one of their branch which is in Banawe St. cor Alcaraz St.

I ordered their Original Large Fried Chicken in Spicy which cost Php110.00 then upgraded it into a meal worth additional Php 35.00 so I could have rice and blue lemonade.

I also want to try their Ice Crush so I ordered their black gulaman which cost Php45.00.

I can’t get over the size of the fried chicken its a meal of its own, I was so happy like a kid when I saw it. I love food serve in big portions at small cost. Value for money!

The chicken is well seasoned but the coating is so thick that the inside of it tends to be still gooey but I still love it maybe because of the spicy season that I had. This chicken is so packed with umami I’m guessing they put a lot of MSGs in it.

The black gulaman is so good and refreshing it reminds me of my childhood days when my mom used to make black gulaman always.

I am super full after eating my lunch but the taste of the chicken made me crave more so I bought another one to go as is without the rice and drinks, instead I bought the other flavor of Ice Crush which is the almond and it taste really good as well.

Big Disappointment with Taco Bell’s XL Grilled Stuft Burrito

I am so craving for Mexican food the whole day that I quickly search the internet for, what comes first in my mind, a burrito. So search I go and find the most convenient place to get a burrito Taco bell. First look on their site and I found this add on their banner.

Taco bell Ad

So there I was can’t believe with what I’m seeing. A 12 inch burrito I am so drooling at that point and for 139 it’s a steal right? So I decided to get one from the nearest Taco bell at Trinoma.

I went in line bought a XL grilled stuft burrito ala carte for takeout and wait for my big burrito. Imagine my face when they called my name and got my order. My shoulders literally drop because my burrito is half the size its claiming to be.

Why is it as big as my sister's small ruler? It should be 12 inch right?

So here I am at home got a ruler and measured it.

Imagine that 7 inches a half of what they promise on the ad. Disappointed I am. And not just that since I can’t do anything about it anymore might as well eat it and boy I am so much even disappointed with the taste.


The taste lacks flavor and body that a real burrito has. The filling is a bit bland maybe cause of fried potato wedges.

With this I will never buy a burrito from Taco bell.
