Being the chicken lover that I am, this definitely was on my got-to-eat-there list. There are few places in the city that serve up good wings. I wondered if this chain was worth flying over for. Let’s see. 😉
The place was very spacious. I could just imagine this place being packed on a Friday night with yuppies enjoying their wings with beer in tow. The interiors has this street feel to it with the graffiti art on one of its walls.
I liked how thick these fries were. For me, the drizzled cheese sauce was just right. It’s still a little messy to eat but I didn’t mind it.
We just had to order this. But I found myself disappointed for it was overcooked. It tasted burnt which was just sad as it took that natural sweetness away from the potato.
Does the rice looked bland to you? If it does, then you’ve set your expectations on this. I was looking for that good ol’ chipotle kick but found that it lacked on that action.
The sauce on this was a-okay! It was tangy in all the right places. As for the chicken, bordered on the hard side but it was tender on the other parts. A little small in terms of serving (it said “biggest wings” on their menu) but I guess that has to do with it being sourced local (I think).
And these chicken tenders were big! On its own, it was quite flavorful. I liked how thin the coating was on this so as not to take away the spotlight on the chicken. We paired this with two dips, namely, honey mustard and ranch. Both were equally good to pair with the tenders. You could choose from four dips but it depends on the number of chicken tenders. If you opt for the three pieces, you only get one dip (priced at P 195). If you choose the the 9 pieces, you get three dips (priced at P 570).
So was it worth flying over at this chicken joint? Well, sorta. I bet we weren’t able to taste the real bestsellers but then again, everything should be stellar given that this is a chicken joint. Still, it’s a good place to hang out with your buddies after a hard day’s work. In terms of service, it could be better. Not sure if it was the norm to serve gloves but we weren’t offered one. We saw some diners with gloves so one should probably ask for it. Still better to use your hands in eating those wings but if you’ve got somewhere to be after, you don’t want that lingering chicken scent on you right?
