We were out for a pasyal with my uncle and his family who are based in Australia. My Uncle usually visits the Philippines twice a year and his only child Camille's last visit here was 2007. Camille is very fond of chicken that is why when they asked us where to eat, we suggested that they should try Bon Chon's chicken.
They even asked if, does it really taste that good and I told them yes. With the experience I had with Chicken Bon Chon, my taste buds agree to the fact how it bagged the best chicken in America as told by GQ, Esquire and the New York times.
When we arrived there, we hardly found a seat. A lot of people loves Bon Chon, there were restaurants beside it with only few people eating but there at Bon Chon you still have to wait for you to get a table.
We ordered drumsticks, wings and chops.We told them also to try the noodles made from root crops - The Chap Chae noodles and the Western/ Asian fusion of coleslaw/ Kimchi to go with the fried chicken and calamari.
Just like me on my 1st time at Chicken Bon Chon, they were impressed by the crispy yet moist and juicy but not oily soy garlic fried chicken. They love the Chap Chae - the noodles made from sweet potato with garnishings of julienned carrots, green leafy strips of vegetable topped with sesame seeds and scrambled egg.
Their clean plates proved that they really had a wonderful gastronomic experience at Bon Chon.
It was a great day for me, as a tour guide in Manila's shopping spots and a restaurant guide for my balikbayan relatives. Each food trip visit at Bon Chon is really a Bon Chow.
