For dinner on our second day, we decided to try out Century City Mall’s “food hall“. This is Hole in the Wall on the fourth floor. It consists of various food establishments inside a common dining area.
Beloved and I had afterbrunch, or perhaps more of a brinner (dinner as breakfast, coined by me), at Hot Star’s somewhat newly-opened Katipunan Branch. It’s not actually at Katipunan itself, but on one of the side roads, F. dela Rosa to be precise. From the title, you can probably assume what it serves: Large Fried Chicken.
Beloved and I had dinner at Wee Nam Kee. This Singaporean-Chinese restaurant opened its doors at the topmost floor of Trinoma. Most Singaporean places we’ve been to specializes in Hainanese Chicken Rice. This place offers similar specialty as well as one dish I’ve wanted to try since learning about it. After learning the prices were fair, we took our seats.
Beloved and I ate at Manang’s Chicken. Although they dub themselves “Ang Bagong Fried Chicken ng Pinoy”, they basically use a smiliar recipe as Bonchon Chicken’s or Chicken Charlie’s, which is the Korean Soy Fried Chicken. I actually enjoy this style of cooking, but they usually lack in the amount of meat for what you pay. I’ve heard of reverse from this place, where there’s plenty of meat to eat, but I’ve also heard some negative reviews from friends, claiming the chicken meat itself tasting poor and old. Last Saturday, out of whim, we finally get to try it out.
Me, Beloved, and friends celebrated a Holiday’s party last Saturday. We met up at SM North EDSA and decided to have dinner at Peri-Peri. This is among the original food places that opened up when the new Annex building re-opened. Beloved and I never had the opportunity to try out this Portugese grilled chicken restaurant, but our friends did. Garnering no negative reviews, and with the fact that they offer unlimited soup and drinks for 49 Php, there was little hesitation from me.
Beloved and I had dinner, or breakfast in my case, at Chicken Charlie. This fried chicken place is often compared to BonChon Chicken; its followers say that this is the original one, the first incarnation a long time ago at Banawe. I apologize beforehand for comparing Chicken Charlie to BonChon throughout this review, but since they are quite similar, it cannot be helped. Anyway, I haven’t been to this place before, but from what I’ve heard, the chicken here is pretty good.
Beloved and I had dinner at Sentosa last night. This Singaporean-Chinese restaurant is among the newer ones in Tomas Morato, albeit this one has been here awhile. Still, I think it’s not yet been a year since its opening. Anyway, what kept us from eating here are a couple of things: first, we don’t know what to expect from a Singaporean restaurant, this being the first one we’ve to try; and, second, their windows consist of different fish tanks where they keep their fresh seafood, and we have no idea how many people are eating inside without taking a peek at the door to find out if people actually eat here. For some unknown reason, we did finally eat here last night, and what follows is the experience.
Me and family had dinner at BonChon Chicken last night. I’ve only recently heard of this place, which apparently recently also sprung up everywhere for some reason. All of my loved ones who have tried this place say that it’s fantastic. Mom had heard that their chicken is addictive, and they claim to be the best chicken in some parts of America. However, from what I’ve heard, this place is apparently a Korean fried chicken place. A pretty accessible one opened up in a somewhat newly-opened building at Katipunan Ave., and that was where we ate.
