|At Robinson's Galleria|
My friends and colleagues have been talking about; the people I rode with in the jeepneys and LRT and MRT Trains; there were talks on Twitter ... everywhere! I felt like I was harassed by the messages! LOL. Well seriously, I was getting bombarded by it everywhere I go. So I gave up! I gave in! I gave it a try ... How did I find it? Let's see ...

Looking at their menu, it seems pretty affordable. It costs almost the same as the meals we see from Jollibee or McDonald's. They range from P150-P200. There are some foodies that cost less but you ain't getting a meal with that. The only catch is, their main meals don't include drinks yet. You need to order your drinks separately. I can still go with that, I think ... they don't cost much. So I prefer the boxed meals as they call it hehhe.
From the main meals, my favorite is the Fish Taco - as you can see on this photo on the right. Yeah that's me enjoying it! Hohohoh~ It tastes really good! The only thing that I'd comment on I guess, is the presentation. The set is kinda messy and doesn't look too-presentable nor pleasing to the eyes. LOL. The first time I saw it; I was like - so what's this? It looked like a hodge-podge of stuff hohoho~ Plus, their "taco" ain't the crisp one. It's soft - too soft that the dressing (mayonnaise / ketchup and what have you ...) consumes it all later; making it even softer. Good for the tummy but it gave me a hard time eating it! LOL. I loved it cheesy! I just hated it for being too-messy! Lah~

In terms of content, considering the size; I can say it's acceptable; but definitely not overwhelming. For the price they offer; the food is less than the regular. I think it's pretty common in fast food chains now - if you want more, pay more!

However, because of the taste, I think I can let it pass! (^_^) *wink* Similar to Jollibee and other chains I guess, they offer you a free choice of chicken flavor - either spicy or soy garlic (glaze). Both flavors are really delicious!! I prefer the soy garlic though because the spicy one is overly spicy; I guess ... I can't the whole meal without drinking softdrinks in between! Haha!

|Korean Chicken BonChon|
The store promises chicken meals that are super crispy yet light and non-greasy. I think they pretty much achieved that. From their boxed meals, my favorite is their chops ricebox. It's pretty addicting! They serve it hot, moist (with the glaze) and still uber-juicy chicken meat! While the size is still compromised I guess, this one's still pretty awesome!

Whatever this original Korean Friend Chicken secret that they have, it's working! I love it! It's indeed a crispy chicken secret that the world craves for! I didn't realize that they're already open in multiple parts of the world!
So despite some of my comments, I still keep on coming back! Aside from these chicken servings, I also love their Chapchae Noodles!

Overall, I guess discounting the serving size; this is really palatable! So I guess I'd rate it ...
