I could smell the fried chicken the moment I stepped out of my car. The queue snaking around the food station is testament that the chicken is a crowd-puller. Hunger and sight of the well displayed food made me too greedy and I had the following on my plate before I could stop myself: fried chicken, curry fish with lady's... More
