Two Taiwanese Restaurants to Share Westwood Storefront

TKK Fried Chicken and Kung Fu Tea coming to former D’Amore space

By Dolores Quintana

Two Taiwanese restaurants will be sharing the same storefront in Westwood as part of a joint venture. 

A new restaurant is coming to Westwood, as reported by Toddrickallen.com, in the space that used to be occupied by D’Amore’s Pizza. It is a combination of two restaurants, TKK Fried Chicken, a Taiwanese restaurant founded by Shih Kwei-ting in 1974, and Kung Fu Tea, a restaurant founded in Queens, New York after three friends convinced their friend with a bubble tea shop in Taiwan to come to Flushing to start a shop there. 

Kung Fu Tea now has locations in Australia, Cambodia, Canada, Japan and, of course, Taiwan and the United States. Kung Fu Tea’s founders were inspired to create this new restaurant because they found that the bubble tea in the United States was an inferior copy of true bubble tea in Asia. 

TKK Chicken is a marriage of Western “golden crispy techniques” and “bold flavors of the East”. TKK has 66 locations in Taiwan and two in Shanghai and first partnered with Kung Fu Tea in 2018 in the Flatiron District of New York City to serve both of the restaurant’s selections in the same location. Apparently, this new location in Westwood will be a similar partnership of both brands selling their food and drinks in the same spot.
