Marrybrown is Malaysia's local response to Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC). Although not as popular as the U.S.-franchise public-listed fried chicken conglomerate, Marrybrown still has some decent offerings to tap into unfilled niche markets.

I placed an order for a Chick-A-Licious With Mushroom Sauce (RM12.90). This set meal consists of 2 pieces of fried chicken drenched in mushroom sauce, a carbonated drink, a small serving of coleslaw and a decent heap of fries.
In my humble opinion, the fried chickens at Marrybrown and KFC are indistinguishable from each other. It really puts into perspective of KFC's "Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices".

However, Marrybrown cleverly innovates by adding mushroom sauce (or black pepper sauce) over the fried chicken pieces, given them a different dimension of appeal.

However, the price point is still quite similar to KFC, so it is just a subjective matter which is a better fried chicken restaurant chain.


  1. I first saw the Marrybrown name when I was a little kid back in Ipoh but Marrybrown in west Malaysia was known to be a a fast food outlet where people will not frequent or visit at all. True enough, the Marrybrown in Ipoh tried to survive but later died of some years later.

    Fast forward to now, Marrybrown still creeps around in certain corners of West Malaysia where it still has not many visitors. I'm surprised of it's name survival around here. I guess it rides on the success of them at East Malaysia.

    1. I take that Marrybrown is quite popular in East Malaysia? :-)

      Anyway, thanks for visiting. Much appreciated. :-)
