(LAist)   In defense of LA Koreatown's KFC, which is shaped like a bucket of chicken. No defense for getting KFC instead of some Korean-style fried chicken though. Maybe uphold the slaw, that's it   (laist.com) divider line

I was stationed in Korea when the first KFC opened in Seoul .
To say that it was a "thing" would be an understatement.

I was TOLD by wifie in no uncertain terms that we were going.  3hrs sleep and a mission that night, we went.
40 miles in a taxi with her girlfriends in tow.  They got gussied up in there best dress.
Yeah, I paid. As irritated as I was was, it was so worth it.
What a sight.

Now let's talk about Taco Bells in San Francisco where there are so many authentic Mexican taquerias. Long ago Taco Bell would have been laughable. But who's laughing now? $8 for a meat and beans supersized burrito? What? You want guac and sour cream, LOL that's $10 plus tax. NO THANK YOU. I'll get either a Taco Bell 7-layer burrito. Or, if I'm planning 3 meals, maybe I'll get the $10 supersized burrito cut into thirds.

I remember eating at that KFC waaay back in 2002, and I enjoyed watching the city while sharing a bucket of chicken with my girl at the time.

I mean, I wish more buildings were shaped like the things they sell. It's kinda fun.

Subby, you need to find your high school English teachers, and punch each one right in the face.

"The Los Angeles skyline is iconic, sometimes outranking cities like New York and Chicago's."

I clicked the link, St. Louis was the most iconic skyline in the US... Just no.   I live in St. Louis, We're not up there with New York, and neither is LA in that category.

As for the KFC shaped like a bucket of KFC, I agree with Wessoman.  It's kinda fun.

LA might be if you could see it through the smog

Not sure if serious.

Yeah, but the burrito from the taqueria is *worth* 10 bucks. Also, you get tasty fresh-made sauce.

We go to this taco truck in Santa Clara... they have a giant, amazing burrito that I can never finish for 10 bucks. And I can get all the pickled onions and whole jalapeños I want.

Now I want a burrito. THANKS A LOT.

Like I say, if I have it cut into thirds, it's just right for me. You're right about salsa being a factor. But if I don't care about sauce and don't want to plan three meals, I'm ok with Taco Bell occasionally. Usually I just let Trader Joe's do all my cooking and eat at home anyway.
