Muzdalfa Fried Chicken: The New KFC???

I had another ‘makan-makan’ session with The Roommate, The New Friend and The Boyfriend (ehem, not mine though..hahaha)..This time we went to Muzdalfa Fried Chicken or MFC located at Bangi…The Roommate claimed that this restaurant is always pack with people so we concluded that it must be good and a must-try new restaurant. Taking a fast food concept like KFC, MFC serves fried chicken (original and spicy), variety burgers and additional pizza on their menu…
The Downside:
Before I started complaining, I must stress that we have NO absolute qualms against Muslim/Malay/local restaurants taking concepts like KFC, McD, Pizza Hut, Starbuck etc. In fact we are very happy to fully support them (even if we have to pay extra) providing they give us similar qualities like those well-known restaurants..
    1. Why it is always pack with people?? Because the service was ridiculously SLOW! At first we thought the food must be really good that people kept coming. How wrong we are! It should not be called fast-food restaurant. It should be named as slow-food restaurant. Most of the people I observed (including us!) were cringing just by looking at how slow the services are. Everything is at snail-paced. The order enquiries, the packing etc. FULLSTOP.
Just want to emphasize the number of people in a subtle way...asking them to pose..hahaha..

The slow counter..hmm

2  2. The foods are..hurm..very disappointing… The fries were soggy and tasted weird as if they were fry in recycled/unfiltered oil. The spicy fried chicken just tasted like original fried chicken only with extra breading. And I happened to get the weird-tasted original fried chicken. It was like I’m eating a non-fresh chicken. The dinner rolls were quite ok. So did the Chicken Tikka Pizza. It was ok so I won’t go hard on them..
Original fried chicken..yum!! err..not really

The supposed-to-be-spicy fried chicken

The fries. The quantity were lesser that they were supposed to be so they look like we had ate half of them..

Dinner rolls. No complains about them.

The Good Side:
1.   1.I have to give 4.5 stars to their interiors. Well matched with KFC, McD etc…They even have condiments section complete with extra plates…In fact even better because they have prayer room facility in it. Equipped with Executive Room, playground etc… It’s a near customer-friendly outlet (oh well except for the counter services) Two tumbs up…Keep it up!
2.  2. The non-counter services are good because there are staffs ready to serve us at the second floor and they keep asking us whether we have completely received our order or not. 
3.  3. It’s a Muslim restaurant, so we will have zero doubt about its Halal status..People can eat at ease..
Condiment eh

The provided plates that I was rambling about before..hehehe..

Playground section

Will we come again??? No and yes..Not unless they improved/upgraded their services and foods...If they do that, I have faith that they can compete with well-known fast food restaurants. 

The Camwhoring Section
