Kosher KFC?

Kosher KFC?

A strange request...does anyone know of a kosher KFC in either Jerusalem or Tel Aviv?

We're in Israel at the moment and my other half is craving the KFC he used to eat before we kept kosher!

There is a kosher KFC in the big mall in Jerusalem - Malcha.

It is located on the lowest level.

Enjoy!!

Not a strange request at all. Just keep in mind that kosher tastes different than non-kosher in the States. Enjoy!

Kosher chicken is tastier if you don't mind the odd feather! But the op knew that already.

Thanks for the replies! The one in Malcha has closed down, he'll just have to live without KFC ;)

There used to be one in the Kanyon HaZahav in Rishon L'Zion. Anyone know if it's still there?

This link (in Hebrew) from a website of the company itself lists six branches - Tel Aviv, Holon, Nazareth, Herzliya, Eilat, Rehovot.

No mention that any of the branches are kosher. Most are open on Shabbat.

If the one in Rechovot still exists it might be kosher. The one I knew was in the Mall in Rechovot but no longer appears in any directory on the mall website.

It looks like there are barely any KFC left and certainly not the kosher ones.

It looks like it will just have to remain a fond memory for your husband.

All the food court restaurants with the exception of McD's in the Rehovot Mall are now kosher, so if there is a KFC branch there, it is indeed kosher.
