KFC is going places. The fast food chain recently opened a specialty restaurant in Japan featuring a fully-stocked whiskey bar. KFC Route 25, named in honor of the U.S highway route where it all began, is the first KFC joint of its kind and prides itself in its unique atmosphere and scrumptious dishes.
Route 25’s menu is inspired by American Midwestern cuisine. Aside from Sanders' classic fried chicken, clients can order a variety of burgers, pizzas, salads, and pasta dishes --they even serve creampuffs and tiramisu for dessert. We hear that they have a 6-cheese pizza generously topped with maple syrup that is to die for.
The restaurant’s bar opens every day after 5 p.m., and it’s no joke either-- don’t think that they just serve rum and coke. These guys have everything from beer and bourbon highballs to speciality cocktails. Most signature drinks are “easy-to-drink” Japanese variations of whisky-based classics.
KFC Route 25 is located in Shimokitazawa, a neighborhood in Setagaya, Tokyo. According to reports, the location was chosen based on its accessibility and popularity with hip young people.
