Hot Star first opened in Taiwan in 1992, and has slowly been expanding their global presence. In 2015 they hit the Canadian market, but their expansion to B.C. has been anticipated for well over a year now.

On the menu is fried chicken in multiple varieties with a choice of seasonings, including a fiery Korean style, stuffed with cheese or with a crispy coating.
