KFC Has Finally Opened Their First All-You-Can-Eat Buffet

KFC has just opened an all you can eat buffet and people are raving about it! This one of a kind KFC is located in Tokyo, Japan, and it is any KFC lovers paradise. This giant restaurant chain has recently been exploring the idea at select locations around the world by test running temporary all-you-can-eat buffets. Tokyo happens to be the first city in the world to receive a permanent KFC buffet. The lucky residents of this city waited in preposterously long lines on opening week to get a taste of this juicy chicken. These long lines were to be expected though based on the huge amount of patrons KFC has in Japan. According to Japanese news agency Nari Nari, KFC is the fourth most popular fast food restaurant in the county!

Because this KFC is located in Japan, the menu items are not what you would typically find at your standard KFC.

Even the breading on some of the chicken is a different recipe than standard.

But don’t worry, it is still a KFC sporting the normal Kentucky Fried Chicken and famous mashed potatoes.

It is currently a mystery as to if KFC will eventually open up more of these all-you-can-eat buffets. With the popularity of this location so far, you would expect the world-wide fast food chain to at least open a second location somewhere else. Considering they have been testing this idea at locations world-wide, they have been thinking about the idea for some time. What do you think, would you rather have all-you-can-eat KFC buffet or do you prefer the traditional fast food style more?
