All-you-can-drink alcohol is even available
Japan Today reports that KFC is opening an all-you-can-eat-and-drink buffet restaurant in Tokyo.
KFC buffets are not a new phenomenon in Japan. The fried chicken brand rolls out buffet offers at their normal branches for special occasions including the Colonel’s birthday.
However, a brand new KFC in the Machida neighbourhood of Tokyo is the first restaurant to constantly offer an all-you-can-eat full menu and all-you-can-drink options.
KFC opened their new restaurant in Minami Machida Grandberry Park on Wednesday.
Over 50 different items are available including original recipe fried chicken, biscuits, pasta, fries, curry, soup, salad, and dessert, as well as all-you-can-drink packages for soft drinks and alcohol.
A “Special Fried Chicken Soup Curry”, special rotisserie chicken and a pan-baked potato casserole are also available as Machida restaurant-exclusives.
Prices charged as follows:
Lunch (served between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.):
Adult – 1,980 yen ($18 USD)
Kids – 980 yen ($9 USD)
Dinner (served between 5 p.m.-10 p.m.):
Adult – 2,580 yen ($24 USD)
Kids – 1,280 yen ($12 USD)
Lunch and dinner are available to customers younger than elementary school students for 480 yen, and free for children 3 and under.
An all-you-can-drink alcohol offer is also available for an extra 1,250 yen ($12 USD).
The restaurant’s theme is a “KFC home party” and has more of a family restaurant-style decor. A kid’s school corner that teaches elementary school students about cooking and kitchen safety will also be featured at the restaurant.
