McDota Fried Chicken, SP

Last evening when we were on our way back from Sungai Petani, we dropped by this place called McDota for our quick dinner. Why must we have a quick dinner? Ahem, cuz we left our beloved Tiger Chihuahua in the car alone. Sorry lor, Tiger pup. :P

According to hubby, this outlet has been operating since 1978. Wow, that was 30 years ago. It was very popular last time when KFC did not open any outlet in Sungai Petani yet. Furthermore, the location was really strategic. It's near to Cathay Cinema (now no more), and hawker food street.

Like usual, I ordered their nasi lemak set. This place is now famous for its nasi lemak. I always benchmark nasi lemak from other places with McDota's, but so far it is still the best :). The rice is fragrant and lemak. The main dish sambal tumis anchovies is spicy and flavorful. The crunchy peanuts and sambal anchovies are kind of savory condiment to the coconut milk rice. Besides, a small bowl of chicken curry is served. Sometimes, you can find a piece of potato and one piece of chicken meat, but this time, I got 2 pcs of chicken meat instead. Also, this nasi lemak set is inclusive of a glass of Sarsi. The set just cost RM5.60. I couldn't finish the whole set. I left some for my hubby. :)

Hubby prefer their Hapiness Plate. It consists of 3 pcs of fried chicken, some fries and a piece of bun. They serve home cooked style fried chicken which you'll never find it in KFC. Unlike the KFC, their chicken are not coated with a thick layer of flour. And it's not too greasy. It only cost RM7.20, cheaper than KFC's dinner plate.

We also ordered their Banana Split for our dessert. Like its name, one banana is split into half to sandwich 3 scoops of chocolate, strawberry and vanila ice-cream. Topping includes mousse, chocolate and grounded peanut. This costs for only RM4.60.

Their menu covers both local delights and western food. Besides nasi lemak, other local delights available are curry mee, fried koay teow, Hai Lam noodle/koay teow, chicken porridge, etc. Their western food includes fish & chip, chicken chop, and some other side dishes like mashed potato and coleslaw.

Overall, the prices are very reasonable.

Their address: No 4, Jalan Bank, 08000 Sungai Petani, Kedah.
Tel: 04-4215770.

It's is just next to the Muamalat Bank. Bangunan Keladi (the EPF office) is located at the other end of the road.

Oh wow! I remember this from when I was a kid! I didn't think it was still in existence! At that time, it was considered a poor copycat of KFC... but now, the food looks so much better. I'd have this over KFC anyday!

It's nice to have something different since all major fast food joints are cooking their chicken almost the same way :)

I remember McDotta was around way back in the early 80s in my hometown Batu Pahat Johor.
I celebrated my 4 or 5 years old birthday eating McDotta fried chicken. This is also my 1st experience of fast food in my life.
Juz wondering if there is any more McDotta outlet in Msia now n Ithought I came across one such outlet in Batam Indonesia some years back (2003 or 4).
