MFC - Yep, they've copied everything in China!



I'm not sure what the M stands for... Manchurian Fried Chicken?



Even the colonel hasn't escaped a good copying.



Against my better judgement I tried one of the burgers but somehow managed to order a vegetarian patty, though the burger did have an egg on it so I guess at least there was something chicken based.

  3. Holy crap..! Hilarious..!

    Surprised that KFC hasn't cracked down considering its massive presence in China.

    Where was this? Guangzhou?

  6. Daniel - yep, MFC's in Guangzhou. And apparently it's a chain. As you say, it's surprising that it hasn't been cracked down on because there are plenty of KFCs around Guangzhou too.

    Nice one Dennis, Mao Fried Chicken, let's go with that for the name. :)

  9. I've been to an MFC! It was hilarious. Everything is copied, down to the posters on the walls (which are badly photoshopped to remove the KFC products that MFC doesn't sell.) It's like a cross between a McDonald's and a KFC, and I believe MFC stands for Making Fried Chicken.
