It's like Christmas come early: rather than only gorging yourself on pricey KFC on December 25, you can now fill up on fried chicken every Friday until the end of summer. KFC Japan has announced that until August 31, they'll be having an all-you-can-eat fried chicken deal at selected outlets across the nation, including some 47 shops in Tokyo itself.
The best bit? It's just ¥1,380, which gets you 45 minutes of unlimited binging on their original fried chicken, plus small servings of curly chips, biscuits and drinks to top it all off. Of course, to contain the chicken-frenzied masses, you'll have to reserve a spot to get the deal, which runs from 4pm until closing time. It's perfect for dinner.
Reservations should be made directly with the KFC shop of your choice; for a full list of participating outlets, click here (Japanese only). Some larger KFC outlets in central Tokyo seem to be participating, such as those in Shibuya Dogenzaka, Ikebukuro, Asakusa, Akihabara and Hatchobori. Other than that, they're mostly clustered outside of the Yamanote line loop – hey, you've got to work for your chicken.
When making reservations, you'll have to state that you're coming for the 'tabehoudai' deal. After that, it's all about the chicken. No more Netflix and chill, everyone – date night now means heading straight to KFC on Fridays. See you there!
