Donna was craving Kentucky Fried Chicken as we finished shopping in Willow Grove so we started looking for a store but no stores were to be found. As we got closer to Doylestown, Donna remembered that beside Thompson Toyota she saw a sign advertising Fried Chicken. That sign took us to Gross’ Gourmet Foods and to great Fried Chicken.
At Gross’ Gourmet Foods I bought Fried Chicken Breast, Thigh and Drumstick along with Potato Salad, Coleslaw and Corn Bread to take home. The order came to $26 which at the time seemed high to me. When we got home I fixed Donna the plate to the right for her lunch. As I prepared the plate, I sampled each of the items so I could report to you readers (LOL). The Fried Chicken had a great Crispy Coating and was very Moist and Sweet inside. All three pieces were huge compare to KFC pieces especially the Breast which weighed at least a pound by itself. The Potato Salad was very good as well. The potatoes were done el dente so they had a nice bite to them. Donna and I couldn’t figure out what was giving the salad it’s Tang, I thought mustard and Donna thought it was garlic. I think Donna was right as they colour remained more white than any yellow tint mustard would have gave the salad. The Coleslaw was very creamy with the Cabbage giving the salad some nice Tang and Crunch. The Carrot gave the salad some sweetness and some colour. The Cornbread was Moist and Sweet. The bread was dense and not grainy like many other versions I have tried. It was almost as good as Derrick’s Cornbread so it was very good. Together the chicken, potato salad, coleslaw and cornbread made a Classic Fried Chicken meal and Gross’ Gourmet Foods made that meal excellent.
Gross’ also sells Wings, Ribs, Brisket and Pulled Pork as well as Sandwiches and Ribs. They operate their retail store seven days a week as well as providing catering. The Chicken alone make the trip to Gross’ worth the trip but we plan on trying other items very soon.
