Hot Star Chicken Toronto

Taiwanese fried chicken chain hits Toronto tomorrow

Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken is opening its first North American location tomorrow by the corner of Yonge and Gerrard. The Taiwanese chain is famous for its massive pieces of chicken that purportedly measure nearly 30 centimetres long.

The international chain got its start in Taipei's famous Shilin Night Market in the early 1990s. Now, it has outposts in numerous countries including Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.

In Toronto, a piece of the original large fried chicken will set you back $9.99 and it comes in three flavours: pepper salt, spicy or seaweed. There's also a BBQ sauce option available for an additional $1.50. The small menu features a bevy of deep-fried goodies such as popcorn chicken, fried king oyster mushroom, plum sweet potato fries and regular French fries.

While Toronto offers up a slew of fried chicken options, here's one more to help keep your cravings at bay.
