The KFC Double Down is one of the derisive fast food items out there. Two fried chicken breast with meat and cheese … no bun either sounds like greasy heaven or hell. Now KFC in the Philippines is taking it to yet another level with the KFC Double Down Dog!
KFC Double Down Dog is a hot dog wrapped in fried chicken then drizzled in cheese sauce.
The traditional US version of the Double Down (read review here) is actually quite tasty in a heart stopping “I should get a note from my doctor or disclose to my health insurance” kind of way but this just seems ridiculous. Not a meal but a dare.
Just to see if there may be a rhyme or reason for the Double Down Dog to be specifically featured on KFC Philippines, I consulted a Filipino colleague who commented, “Most Pinoys & Pinays do love their hot dogs (minus the bun). We add sliced sausage in with spaghetti. Just stop by your local Jollibee chain restaurant and find out.”
Beyond the KFC Double Down Dog, the KFC Philippines also features a few other unfamiliar items like KFC Spaghetti and something called a Pizza Twister (crunchy chicken with chicken pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, and pizza sauce wrapped in a toasted tortilla).
