GALLERY: 10 of the world’s most over-the-top fast foods, in honour of the new Kentucky Chicken Rice
KFC, the culinary innovator that launched the infamous Double Down in 2010, introduced the Kentucky Chicken Rice to Japan this week. Like the Double Down, it’s a sandwich of sorts, with two pieces of fried chicken taking the place of the bread, and a thick rice patty inside, along with ketchup, mayo and cheese. The concoction is yet more evidence that the gluttonous fast food item arms race rages on, propelled as much by the Internet’s love of a good gross-out as by the fad for comfort foods that kicked off with the Great Recession and never seemed to ebb. In honour of KFC’s new invention, we present 10 over-the-top fast food items, drawn from around the world, with a couple notable Toronto contributions.
