For months, since Emquartier opened in Bangkok, Hot Star, a Taiwanese fried chicken outlet, has been immensely popular. Wait-time in the queue has been up to an hour on weekends. Well, we went on a weekday when the line was non-existent. We wanted to find out what all the fuss was about. We tried the chicken “nuggets.” The chicken was chewy and tasteless without the so-called “hot” sauce on top. What a rip-off.
