Do you love fried chicken? While it can be surprisingly difficult to find great fried chicken, even at dedicated establishments, we’re happy to tell you that a new such eatery is coming to Mississauga very soon and it’s pretty darn unique!

Hot-Star is a Taiwanese fried chicken restaurant that specialises in making huge pieces of the stuff, and it looks as amazing it sounds. In fact, the full name of the establishment is Hot Star Large Fried Chicken, and here’s a picture to feast upon while you wait for the grand opening.

“Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken, the creator of the larger-than-your-face crispy chicken and the most popularular Taipei Shi-Lin Night Market snack, is here in Ontario! You can now satisfy your craving forauthentic Taiwanese oversized crispy chicken that is oh -so-moist and tender on the inside and deep-fried to perfection with a burst of flavours on the outside at any of our locations in Ontario, Canada.”

Hot-Star offers lots of different fried chicken options, including multiple variations of the large chicken cutlets, wings, popcorn, fried mushrooms, sweet potato fries, as well as various Asian drinks. The large fried chicken options are 30 centimetres in size! As you can see from the image above, they are literally the size of your head! Meaning one is certainly enough for the average person.

While Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken already operates stores in Toronto, Waterloo, Windsor, and more, the incoming location marks the first in Mississauga. The brand has been around since 1992 in Taiwan, and become a super popular option. Since expanding to the west, we’ve been excited for a store arriving in Mississauga, and now it’s finally happening! The store will be opening at 780 Burnamthorpe Road, which is right near Coopers Pub and Red Lobster.

Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken may be the answer to all of your fried chicken dreams (and we know you’ve had them). So keep your eyes peeled on Burnamthorpe Road for some massive chicken in the near future, and be sure to try it out!
