Seattle: Popeyes Chicken and Biscuits in Burlington

Oh shoot!

I felt so pressured to keep up blogging on this Seattle series. My memory on this trip is somewhat fading. I had been looking at the screen for the past 5 minutes just thinking of what to share.

Anyway, Popeyes is one of the biggest chicken fast food outlets in the US. There is none in Vancouver.
