Oh my god! (10) “Hitler fried chicken”

Oh my god! (10) “Hitler fried chicken"


The last resurfacing of “Hitler fried chicken” has been shown to be a case of poor research (the restaurant is not in Bangkok, but in Udon Thani; and it didn’t open 2 months ago, it closed some years ago):

Directions can be found on their facebook site:
https://www.facebook.com/hLerFoodAndDrink (last entry from May 2014).

H-ler was in the dark shop. I inquired in the shop next to it: H-ler closed 2 months ago, now there is a shoe shop in the place. Here a picture from daytime (driving past on a bus):



Upon return to Bangkok, reading their facebook page again, I find this (last entry, 09.05.2014): h-ler เจอกันที่สาขาใหม่ หน้า ม.อุบลนะครับ (H-ler see you in our new branch opposite Ubon University). But no direction, map or address.
