An ‘Adult KFC’ Has Just Opened in Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo, Japan is now home to an upscale KFC that offers beer and a special pasta menu for dinner

Otemachi's newest KFC serves a few new menu items.

On Monday, March 17th, an ‘Adult Kentucky Fried Chicken’ opened in Tokyo, Japan at the Yomiuri Shimbun Building. You’re probably wondering, “What does that even mean?” According to Kotaku, the upscale iteration of Kentucky Fried Chicken is part of an ongoing trend from KFC to create more late-night fast food options. What makes this KFC “adult?” Beer, you dirty birds.

The new KFC in Tokyo’s Otemachi district will serve both domestic and international beers, and offer a special dinner menu with five different types of pasta, “developed in conjunction with top chefs,” according to IT Media. The more upscale KFC will also allow customers to place their order via touch panel at each table.

Japan is already home to another upscale version of KFC, a bar called Route 25 that opened in Tokyo’s Shimo-Kitazawa during 2012. It is much, much nicer than any KFC I’ve ever visited, and probably means that the new Adult KFC will be pretty spectacular.
