Hot Star is a unique spot in Downtown Toronto that is offering Taiwanese Chicken. Now, there are plenty of Taiwanese places, especially in the GTA Markham area, but this is probably one of the few in the downtown core. What makes this place a bit more unique is this flattened bone in chicken breast that they have.

We tried one of those with the original batter and seasoning. Also had a popcorn chicken too because it looked so good. The chicken breast was pretty good and meaty, despite how flat it was. I thought it would be like a German Schnitzel, but was thicker than that. The spices used were good and had a nice kick. The bone is still attached so just be aware of that when you are biting into one end.

The popcorn chicken tasted fine, but portion was also small. For the price, you'd expect a bit more. The chicken pieces were good. Batter is light like the chicken breast, but tiny pieces.

Though the chicken tasted pretty decent, the price is high. The breast is large, but that is also due in part to it being flattened. $10 for one breast is too much for me. It is also essentially food you find on a fairground, so not worth it too much for me. They have other items but this is their most famous.

Also...they REFUSE to hand out any knives so no luck trying to use anything but your hands. Maybe a fork?
