The Classic Savory Chicken

I Love to Eat Chicken.

On several occasions, these are the three choices that I would give Paul whenever we're deciding on where to eat:

KFC...

Max's...

Savory...

Obviously, which ever he chooses, one thing's for sure. we're having Chicken!


Last Saturday, Paul and I had to grab a quick lunch before the start of his photo shoot. With only thirty minutes to spare, we decided to just choose from the restaurants nearby and not wanting to just end up with a fast food lunch, we decided to go to Savory Chicken which was perfectly located in front of the event site.

Paul frequents Savory Chicken more than I do and so he took care of ordering for us this time.

Browsing through the menu, Paul finally made his choices and ordered the following for our quick but delicious meal:

Savory Combo A (Php. 295). This meal is good for two as it comes with two cups of rice, Lumpia Shanghai, 1/2 Fried Chicken and Pansit Canton. We both love Savory's gravy which is why we immediately requested for an additional saucer the moment our chicken was served to us.

Savory is really known for their Fried Chicken which has a very delicious flavor that comes from their secret marinade and ingredient. This recipe dates back in 1950 when they first opened their small store in Manila. I remember enjoying this since I was a little kid as my Grandfather (whom I fondly call Kongkong) would order two boxes for our family to enjoy. Back then, the chicken comes with fried banana and some dinner rolls. The sauce was also more spicy then.

I was happy with our combo dish and I wasn't really expecting for Paul to order another dish. However, he really outdid himself and ordered a plate of Beef Tenderloin (Php. 225) which I love so much! It was my first time to try this dish and I was surprised at how tender it was. I just loved every bite and I think I ate more strips than Paul did. Teehee..

As we wiped our plates clean, I thank him for the delicious lunch and warned him that I might just crave for the Beef Tenderloin in the coming days. It's a good thing that we have two Savory Chicken outlets within our neighborhood so my Beef Tenderloin is just a phone call away.

Savory Chicken has branches along Gilmore Avenue (Ortigas Ave.), Robinsons Place Manila, Mandaluyong, Theater Mall in Greenhills and more!
