Taiwan: Taipei: Hot Star Chicken (Large Fried Chicken!)

Hot Star Chicken
Shilin Night Market
No. 101, Jīhé Rd, Shilin District
Taipei City, Taiwan 111

This is definitely on my top-thing-to-eat list in Taipei.

Gold Star chicken is what this should be named. Out of all the street food, this deserves a post all to itself.

Beware of cheap imitations. And look for the big blue ‘Hot Star Chicken’ sign and a line of people snaking several times over with Hot Star Chicken plastic bags, to denote their place in the queue.

It is cheap! (60NTD) (approximately $3AUD). Massive, hot and fresh. The outside is crispy and you can opt for plain or hot. The person will ask ‘la’ (hot) or ‘bu la’ (plain) before he whips it in a paper bag and stuffs it into your plastic bag.
