I'm lucky to have one of the branches of Big Daddy's Chicken within the neighborhood. I've been noticing that a number of people would crowd around their stall in Greenhills Theater Mall at no designated time of the day. Be it during lunch hour or even during what is normally a dead hour for other restaurants in the afternoon, I see people carrying white paper bags while munching on bite-sized pieces of crunchy chicken strips.
Our bags of Chicken Chops are here! I was a bit overwhelmed with five huge white bags on the table. I'm sure glad that my two friends N and H passed by to say hi and I later convinced them to sit with us and try the chops as well.
I started with the Original. I tasted a slight hint of my favorite five-spice powder. I love the crunchy yet tender chicken strips. We were surprised to find tiny bones in some bites though. Kim later explained that if they use fillet then it won't be as tender as it is. Ok, let's stick to the bones then! :)
For the brave ones, the Chili flavor is for you. To be honest, it's not that spicy and it's something even I could take. You'll just feel the sudden zing probably on your second or third bite.
The Nori and Lemon were pretty mild. Paul liked the Nori as he loves the Japanese taste in his chicken pieces. While the lemon we all agreed was very light that you could hardly taste the tangy lemon there.
For those wanting to enjoy a meal at Big Daddy's Chicken, you can actually have your Chicken Chop with pasta or rice! I will definitely go back to have my own Chicken Chop in Plum flavor with pasta!
What caught the attention of my friends N and H, and was actually the reason why they ended up also at Big Daddy's Chicken was the Spiral Potato which is a really creative way of enjoying the ordinary potato chips. It's fried and placed on a stick where you can just dip and munch away. Unfortunately, this was not available during the time of our visit and I told Kim that I promise to go back to try this.
As we headed to Paul's favorite camera shop to get his new *ahem* baby, I couldn't stop raving about the delicious afternoon snack that we've just had. Will definitely be back, Big Daddy! :)
