Long John Silver's in Taipei

Postby maoman » 17 Nov 2006, 19:40

They're putting up a Long John Silver's right around the corner from my office, next to the KFC at the corner of Fuxing and Nanjing. I've never eaten there. Is it any good?

Are you quite sure you've never eaten there? What was the name of the place where the Tavern Premier now stands? Wasn't that a Long John Silvers? Whatever it was, it was fairly disgustering and bit the dust after only a short time.

In the USA, Long John Silver's is the McDonalds of seafood restaurants.

Couldn't have said it better. It's where you take your "Steak and Scrimp" (shrimp pronounced Ebonics style) date.....

I was beginning to get worried that I wouldn't be able to find any deep-fried crap in Taiwan.

The one time I ate there (at one in the US) I got food poisoning, so Id imagine you could guess what my opinion of it is. :wink:

Definitely not the Fryingscotsman place... but better than nothing I guess.
