Deep Fried Chicken - HK$1 Only

Today is my birthday (Chinese calendar May 17). My two brothers and me were born in the same month, so we had a joint celebration last night.

Among all the Chinese ways of chicken cooking, I like deep frying the most. To attract more customers, the restaurant down my house had a special promotion of HK$1 for one deep fried chicken. We all like seafood, you can also see our seafood selections below.
