1st Texas Chicken Restaurant in Penang.

Texas Chicken, the sister brand of Church's Chicken has been serving freshly prepared meals all over the world ever since 1952 and was founded by George W. George in San Antonio, Texas. With 4 years of operation in Malaysia, Texas Chicken; one of the largest global chicken quick service restaurant brands is finally here in Penang. Surprisingly this brand new outlet in 1st Avenue Mall Penang is the 34th restaurant outlet in Malaysia and the first in northern region. Oh how I wished they had come to Penang earlier because we had missing all the good stuff for the past 4 years already. 

The first outlet opened in Malaysia was in Aeon Bukit Tinggi and they have received great demand from the public to open additional restaurants in various locations.

I was indeed very fortunate to be there to to experience the official opening event which took place on the 19 Jan 2017. Texas Chicken Malaysia is managed by local franchisee Envictus International Holdings Limited (Envictus Group), formerly known as Etika Holdings. 

It was definitely a refreshing sight to see Texas Chicken on the LG of the mall. 

Staffs were already so enthusiastic even before the launching.

The event started off with the arrival of guest and members of the media which wasn't long before the emcee gave his welcoming adress.

The event was then followed by Ang Pow giveaway & cheque presentation to orphanage homes. Apart from the festive treats to the 30 children from the homes, a contribution worth RM 10,000 was also donated to both homes.

And the moment that I was waiting for finally came, time to dig into the food :) I wasn't sure what to expect, but friends of mine told me that the food by Texas Chicken is way nicer. Well it was certainly something new to the palate. New type of flavours and taste as well. I was more than delighted when I received my share to indulge away.

The major bomb was the biscuit. Yes I know you are wondering, biscuit? One of the major highlight is definitely the Honey-butter Biscuit. It's something of a bread with a nice butter crunch on the outer layer. Every bite gives you a nice soft fluffy yet crunchy fragrant aroma of buttery flavour and a tinge of sweetness.

As for their chicken, their signature 8-piece cut certainly offers bigger and large portion to enjoy away. The Spicy chicken comes in nice big size portion and an awesome mild bursting spicy flavour.  The chicken tenders tasted superbly delicious with my favourite Honey Mustard sauce. Could I have more of it please ? hahaha..

Spot the FREE REFILLS? Yes, this is definitely a major bonus.

I also got the chance to try a few more items from the menu. 

The Mexicana Burger is something you should also give a try when you are there. It comes with a punch of spiciness, just slightly above average spicy. The crunch from the nachos and the chicken and the special sauce, oh it was heaven! Just look at that piece of chicken.

Well we can't go without desserts can't we? Seen here is the Shortcakes (Chocolate & Strawberry) and the other is the Chcocolate Volcano. The lava cake and the biscuits are topped with a nice creamy serving of soft serve ice cream and chocolate sauce and strawberry sauce. This, I can never say no to.
