American fried chicken chain to open in Dubai

Popular Louisiana fast food restaurant Rising Cane’s will bring its secret recipe to the UAE


What could possibly be better than fried chicken? Well, more fried chicken of course!

You may think we have enough fried chicken outlets in the UAE, but we quite frankly think a bit more wouldn’t hurt.

They’ve heard our wishes all the way in Louisiana and that’s why Raising Cane’s, a popular chain known for its premium chicken tenderloins, is due to open at The Dubai Mall this month.

Whenever you’re craving 24-hour marinated, hand-battered chicken tenderloins, golden-brown buttery Texas toast, secret-recipe handmade sauce and creamy coleslaw – you can head to this new outlet for it all.

They’ve made a promise to never, ever use frozen chicken, the fries are crinkle-cut, the sauce is spicy and a bit tangy and the toast is made from sesame-seeded, pull-apart bread.

Oh, and Raising Cane’s uses crushed ice in most of its beverages, which sounds great as we anticipate the looming heat wave.

Raising Cane’s follows a cook-to-order system, which it claims guarantees hot freshness every time. A meal for two will cost you an average of Dhs80.

The restaurant now has more than 220 outlets across the US, and has been listed among the top five quick-service restaurant chains in the US for 2016. Its first Middle East branch opened in Kuwait.

We can already feel the crunch.
