Do you know what is common with the above restaurants?
It’s fried chicken ! Their fried chicken is very delicious . But of course , there will be one who will reign supreme.
But before I reveal what is the best for me, let me just have my reviews about their respective fried chicken.
Bon Chon is the newest restaurant at the posh mall that opened a year ago here in Legazpi City, Bicol Region, Philippines.
It is actually a Korean restaurant whose specialty is their fried chicken. Since it’s newly opened, going there for lunch at about 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. would mean that it’s very full.
So, I went there last Sunday at about 2:30 , after I have shopped for something and bought a one piece , crispy garlic flavor fried chicken.
You have actually 2 or 3 options of the flavor, but I forgot the two and chose the crispy garlic flavor.
No gravy for it. It was tasty as it is.
It was cheap for 89 pesos or $1.78 with rice and a coke. Though, the chicken which was the thigh part is small.
The fried chicken is actually fried normally, no breading and it was so crispy. Well, it’s delicious, though it’s a little sweet. I don’t like a sweet fried chicken.
So, out of the 5 star rating, I would rate it 3 stars.
Next is Max’s Fried Chicken restaurant , which I think is of Filipino origin.
It’s fried chicken isn’t the breaded type just fried as it is , so crispy and delicious too. A meal with a piece of fried chicken, with rice , a brownie and a coke and a side dish of buttered veggie and soup costs about 250 pesos or $5. No gravy for this, but their catsup is so delicious for a dip for this. Though, actually, one can eat it as it is, no dip. It’s that delicious.
My daughter like a fried chicken that isn’t breaded so her favorite is that of Max’s.
I would rate it at 4 stars .
Next again is KFC restaurant is what is popular even abroad. I actually, super like KFC fried chicken before.
Since there’ no branch here before, I get to taste it when I am in Manila.
So, when a branch opened in one of the malls here, I tried it. It wasn’t as delicious as I can remember before. I think, the branch didn’t get much of the taste of the KFC fried chicken in Manila.
It is a breaded fried chicken that comes with a gravy. Two piece meal that comes with a rice and a coke costs about 150 pesos ($3) . I would rate it 3 stars .
Jollibee is also a restaurant of Filipino restaurant. It’s fried chicken is breaded . It’s juicy, tender , delicious and crispy.
I always would order the two piece chicken meal , that comes with rice and a coke, which costs about 150 pesos or $3 although you have two fried chicken part already.
It also comes with a gravy that I don’t like much though. I can eat the fried chicken without gravy.
But I would rate its fried chicken 5 stars.
Next if DIY Burgers. A fried chicken plate costs 285 pesos or $5.70 . It comes with a corn cob, salad and a coke.
It is a fried chicken, fried as it is . It is crispy, juicy and delicious. It comes with a gravy.
I would rate it 3 stars.
Sorry I can’t find DIY fried chicken picture though at google.
Lastly, McDonald’s . It’s two piece chicken is at about 160 pesos or $3.20 and comes with a rice , and a coke. It is crispy, juicy and delicious. It comes with a gravy, which I find so tasty.
I would rate it 4 stars.
Having rated them all , I would summarize .
Jollibee is 5 stars , McDonald’s and Max’s are 4 . Bon Chon, DIY and KFC are 3 stars .
There you go. Do you have the same rating as me when it comes to these stores for their fried chicken?
I think these restaurants should give me an ads fee, because I have a nice review for their fried chickens.
And now you know that my favorite food is fried chicken. 🙂
Did I make you salivate with the pictures I got from google? 🙂
