As location may change, here's the boss 劉吉祥's mobile number: 092 9098 317 / 097 6039 321.

小上海鹽酥雞's golden brown popcorn chicken looks great and makes a seductive crackling sound when we sink our teeth into it. The popcorn chicken comes in three flavours - original, pepper, and chili.

The queue is non stop from the time the stall opens for business in the evening till after midnight when it closes. Customers often take away NT$200-300 worth of popcorn chicken each, after waiting at least 30 minutes.

The battered and marinated pieces of chicken are fried for at least 6 minutes in a wok of hot oil at 160-170℃ - clean oil and high temperature make all the difference. The boss 劉吉祥 constantly turns and jiggles the wok of fried chicken to cook them evenly and to keep them from caking together.

Customers like 小上海鹽酥雞's popcorn chicken because the savoury outside is crackly crispy while the inside is tender juicy sweet. The golden brown popcorn chicken is not greasy - it doesn't even blot the paper bag. Many regulars have been enjoying 小上海鹽酥雞's popcorn chicken for more than 10 years.

Don't miss 小上海鹽酥雞's popcorn chicken when you are in Kaohsiung.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
