Frankly, the menu looks a little gross. But I'll try it anyway - who knows? Maybe I'll like it. :idunno:

BTW, they'll be open for bidness on December 1st.

I went to LJS's today and it is NOT open yet. (for those who read earlier that it was)
They are in the "testing phase" for employees, and are not serving food.
They were handing out menus and I grabbed one and was disappointed to see no mention of the hush puppies that I had gone there to get.
Maybe the US menu is different than the Taiwan one. :(

Long time ago, when I was teaching EFL, I used a Long John Silver's ad I had taped in the US as a teaching aid -listening comprehension, ordering from the menu, asking about the specials. The ad itself was this hilarious piece for Christmas, full of snow, singing pirates and dancing moose. I am looking forward to the ads here in Taiwan.

For those of you not from the US, Long John Silvers is a childrens fried seafood restaurant serving the lowest quality fish possible. I enjoyed it when I was 8 yrs old but would never go there now. It surely will not stay in business long in Taipei as Taiwanese people have high standards for seafood and will laugh with disgust after biting into an LJS fish fillet.
I give it 6 months of astronomical losses til they close up. Even foreigners will not eat there more than once especially with the above average options for fish n'chips like JB's and Bongos. Good luck but its really disgusting food.

They wouldn't give you the Pirates' hat with your combo meal, eh?

Sounds like most other fast food franchises..

Lowest possible quality 'food' wrapped in a shiny, attractive cover :)

But damn those hush puppies look like good eatin' ;) :lick:

Judging from the success of McDonald's, Pizza Hut and all the fried crap around here, I'll bet you're wrong.
