KFC’s Fish Zinger

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2007/02/Picture%2815%29-thumb.jpgToday I decided to try the new Fish Zinger by KFC. I wasn’t disappointed. It tastes almost same as original Zinger. In fact, when I took the first bite, I couldn’t tell any difference, and for a moment I thought they gave me chicken Zinger by mistake. But few more bites cleared the confusion and I fell in love with the sandwich. The tartar sauce was in perfect quantity and the fish was tender and scrumptious, perhaps more tender than chicken zinger which at times is hard on gums.

The sandwich is a perfect treat for fish lovers. If you don’t like fish then perhaps you shouldn’t bother with it. At Rs. 220 I can’t think of a better option when I want to have something other then chicken Zinger.

    is it KFF ( Kentucky Fried Fish) now

    2 much expensive for a fish burger, its like the same price you pay for a burger somewhere in Europe.

    Not worth it. Will never eat KFC McDonalds in Pakistan ever again, just too expensive.

    Bunkebab, nihari, biryani, local broast .. work for me. Someone should start a campaign against these food chains.

    I dont know this burger looks bland to me, no crisp lettuce, no pickles,no onion or tomato.Rs 220 is too much, i wonder how much whole chicken cost?.I agree with sufi, i will stand behind my desi bun kabab, just perfect.

    Umar, I think that you either stop promoting KFC or get a better camera phone. This is the second time that you KFC Zinger didn’t look at all appetizing.

    Now the thing is how many people can afford Rs. 220 to eat this . These food chains consider as the cheapest food here in North America, and other western countries so even the person with low income can eat it that is not the case in Pakistan.

    It’s all about lack of entertainment spots. Ppl have alternative in North America or other western regions. In Karachi, official meetings are held at PIZZA HUT so you can figure out how holy these places are for Pakistanis.

  13. Adnan Sheikh (unregistered) on February 24th, 2007 @ 9:39 am

    @Adnan Siddiqi: what sorta entertainment you talking abt. PPl go to bars and clubs for entertainment here similar to our masses go for chai paratha. And by cheap food i also meant its not a healthy food.

    forget KFC. has someone tried AL-BAIK yet.
    its a famous fast food chain from Saudi Arabia and is very good. i didnt get a chance to check it out here in Karachi. it opened up in North Nazimabad. i used to live in Jeddah in early 90s and loved the broasted chicken from Al-Baik.

    did anyone try it yet?

  16. Noman (unregistered) on February 25th, 2007 @ 12:55 am

    can pls ne1 tell where al baik is located in N.nazimabad,i’d defintely would like to try it

  17. d0ct0r (unregistered) on February 25th, 2007 @ 1:01 am

    yea AL-BAIK tastes good… have’nt checked it out here yet .. but surely if its real thing then it’ll give kfc/mcdonald run for their money …

  18. Saad Ibrahim Lakhany (unregistered) on February 25th, 2007 @ 1:26 am

    You cant compare al baik with kfc or mcdonald its just great (i dont think al baik is in pakistan yet and if it will come the taste and the prices wont match with trhe saudi arabian one) in ten riyals (160 rs for us and just nothing for them) you would get 12 nuggets or 4 piece of broast and in 4 riyals you would get a nugget roll and all of these tasted great

  19. Paranoid (unregistered) on February 25th, 2007 @ 4:31 am

    Al baik was opening up next to Nandos on the pizza hut line if i remember correctly. I just saw it once while i was visiting karachi this winter. But like other food chains, i really dont think its going to match the taste of original Al baik.

  20. Paranoid (unregistered) on February 25th, 2007 @ 4:32 am

    Oh and yes, fish burger at kfc o_0, thats kinda odd.

    Yo, you guys need to stop player hating against KFC. You’re LUCKY that they are pimpin out these fine ass burgers on your doorstep. That fish zinger looks like fit. And don’t even get me started on their usual Chicken Zinger. KFC need to rep this shit up in the UK.

    Dear All:

    The Baik in Pakistan is a fake Baik. It has nothing to do with the REAL Al Baik in Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately someone has illegally used the name.
    For any further information kindly contact me at the following address:
