The hot star at Hot Star is their 30-cm wide fried chicken cutlet, which is a popular night market snack. The large fried chicken and more will be available at their first-ever B.C. location opening in Richmond at 1623-4791 McClelland Road on Thursday, May 2.
Hot Star first opened in Taiwan in 1992, and has slowly been expanding their global presence. In 2015 they hit the Canadian market, but their expansion to B.C. has been anticipated for nearly two years.
On the menu at Hot Star is fried chicken in multiple varieties with a choice of seasonings, including a fiery Korean style, stuffed with cheese or with a crispy coating.
You can also get fried chicken combos, as well as Taiwanese popcorn chicken bites. Sides include regular french fries, fried King Oyster mushrooms, or fried plum sweet potato wedges.
