Chops of Bonchon in Ayala Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro

We were at Ayala Centrio Mall and we were hungry. We wanted something that was familiar but not that familar to us and that’s when we saw Bonchon. I only get to eat Bonchon when I am in Manila during family gatherings because of their Big Box Chicken Wings but this we were only a few persons so Big Boxes were out of the question.

That was when I saw the K-Style Chops Boxed Meal of Bonchon. I have already tried their chicken wings let me try the Chops.

The servings size of this chicken fillet was enough for a 155 Pesos meal I even ordered extra rice which was a good decision. Continue reading Chops of Bonchon in Ayala Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro

Orange Claw in The Strip, Iligan City

Heramis Lechon in El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

I never paid much attention to Heramis Lechon during my month long stay here in El Nido, Palawan since I know it would be too much to eat a whole roasted chicken. But after days and days of eating pork and fish, I was finally craving for chicken.

Puto Maya with Fresh Mangoes and Sikwate at Tablea Chocolate Cafe

We were flying out of Cebu City after our almost 2 weeks of travel there. I was not expecting anything interesting to find at Mactan Airport predeparture area. I just needed a table and a seat for me to catch up with work while we wait for our flight.

It turns out that there are not many tables in Mactan Airport. Luckily, we saw another person who was on the seats and has a table. When I checked the table it turns out that Tablea Chocolate Cafe offers this. I needed to work so we went to the counter and we had to order something even if we are not looking for anything.
