IN A CITY that’s not short of top quality takeaways, it’s KC’s in Douglas that takes the crown of Cork’s most loved chipper by far.

It’s an institution at this stage.

And the King Creole is its most famous resident

No longer a KC virgin. Lived up to the hype. Gimme more. #KC #cork #absolutelyhangin #pitta #foodagram #yum #chicken #kingcreole #whatiate #idie #flatlay #lol #dinner #healthy #inspo #ijoke #takeaway #saturday #weekend #someoneholdme Source: lisaloucorbett

The pitta creation of kings

For a wrap to have name brand recognition is quite the achievement

So much so that the queues to get in are always out the door

Although, when the place is that small, it’s bound to happen.

Still, the wait is well worth it

And you’ll have to make your voice heard

They even used to have a queue cam so you could check when it was a little less busy

When you’re not there, KC’s all you can think of

And those not from Cork are well aware of its importance

A for effort, but noooo.

Apart from the Creole, they do everything other chippers do… but better

Which is why KC’s reputation is nationwide at this stage

The people are loyal to KC’s

And will tell anyone who listens how damn good it is

It’s got you covered

And you’d surely miss it if you had to leave
