KFC, Philippine-Style


"Kanto" is a Filipino word with Spanish origins that literally means "corner." That word has come to refer to street corners or simply the streets, where all the action usually happens and where all the interesting food items sizzle and are served al fresco. This particular food stall was a head-turner for the name which can possibly be a trade name infringement issue with the Kentucky-based rival.

Since there were no security cameras around, (just really baffled fried chicken vendors), I snapped a quick photo of this "kanto" fastfood establishment where the only item on the menu is deep-fried chicken.

I regret not trying a piece!
