Serious Eats has just profiled BBQ’s “technology” of serving beverage and chicken in the same container. I’ve seen these around for a while.
I also just found out, belatedly, that BBQ has finally branched out into the American market (Ed Levine reviews). That is some seriously good chicken, and I wish I had opened a franchise there.
Are these things popular there? Do you see many people ordering them? I’d never seen them before until BBQ Chicken opened a location just around the corner from our office. This thing is kind of ingenious.
I haven’t seen them at BBQ (yet). I’ve mostly seen them at pojang machas (street food stands) or little fast food counters that catered to elementary and high school students.
