WHEN writing my Times Takeaway reviews, I often try to come up with some witty scenario or recite an old memory to ease my way into business.

For instance, I once wrote an awfully *cheeky* intro about the first time having Peri-Peri chicken… they say you always remember your first time. 

On another occasion, my hatred of the Italian football team for their disgrace against Scotland in 2007 teed me up for an average chippy. (Note: After beating England in the final, Italy is back in my good books).

But this time, it’s just about the food.

My fiancé (yes, an upgrade on girlfriend from the last time I wrote a review!) and I had just returned from a trip to Cornwall, so a takeaway was always on the cards.

While she often opts for a healthier option, there was only one thing on my mind: fried chicken.

“What about McFly’s?”, my partner asked.

Glasgow Times:

I’d never heard of it, but a quick check on Deliveroo and our order was in.

We ordered a burger each and a portion of plain tenders and skinny fries to share.

Me, the picky eater that I am, chose the O.G Chicken Burger. Note: I had to physically call the restaurant to make amends (no sauce etc), as there was no option to personalise on the app.

My fiancé, more adventurous, went for the Harajuku burger with an additional Karma Kola sauce and a ‘little ace’ corn on the cob.

Our order arrived around 40 minutes after payment.

Now, I’m in no way the chicken connoisseur, but I do love a KFC now and then… so my expectations for an up-market fried chicken joint were high. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t let down. The tenders felt a little dry – something that can likely be attributed to delivery.

The chips felt a bit lifeless. They were seasoned, but again I reckon if I was eating in-store, it would be a different review.

My burger held up well. A plain chicken and cheeseburger… just an alternative to a classic Bucks.

My partner’s verdict? The corn was perfectly cooked and exceeded expectations – with intense seasonings and sauce.

Given the intense flavour from the corn, she expected more from the burger – it was her only let down. It still tasted fresh and enjoyed the crunch from the slaw.

But she disagreed with me on the tenders, especially after dipping in the Karma Kola sauce. Something to note for those reading this.

If you have an adventurous taste, this might just be the spot for you. If, like me, you’re a bit fussy – stick to the Kentucky.
