InLove sa Chicken, InLove sa Baboy

My hubby loves this restaurant, who wouldn’t love unlimited rice, right? He always order their CB 4 its Inihaw na Liempo that comes with unlimited rice and I always order their CB5 its Cebu Lechon Manok that also comes with unlimited rice. FYI, drinks are not included so you have to order that separately but no worries because they offer bottomless iced tea to go with their unlimited rice.

Since I’m not a fan of porky, I never tried their liempo but I can tell that it tastes great because hubby always order it. For me their Cebu Lechon Manok is the best among the rest of inihaw na manok others offer, they cook it with lemon grass to add flavor and fragrant, I guess. I never eat it with their suka, I partner it with Calamansi, soy sauce and sili. Aside from toyo, suka, and chicken oil they also have toasted garlic as condiment, you can add it on your complimentary soup or on your rice to make garlic rice.

This branch is often crowded especially during lunch time because it’s close to business centers like Pacific Star and BPI – Buendia but hey they also deliver so why wait in line when you can just give them a call.lol

CB5 all the way
Smile 2012-11-06

 

I love Chic Boy's CB5 because it has a 1/4 Litson Manok along with bottomless price. Of course, you can't forget to mix it with their litson sauce for a taste you won't soon forget. This value meal is very popular and you only have to add 25 to get bottomless iced tea. The service at Chic Boy is also very good as servers would come out of nowhere to refill your rice and water.

Delightful treat!
Smile 2012-10-15

 

I am very glad and happy that there are so many branches of Chic-boy in the metro or anywhere else I go. There are so many dine in restaurants that would offer foods in a cheap cost but you wouldn’t be contented and satisfied. Sometimes, we really want to pig out and eat so much more than our average food intake without spending so much. Every time I got that kind of feeling, I visit Chic – boy and have the unlimited rice meals. The meat are all so yummy and the servings are all so huge that will satisfy you. Ohhh.. I really love their foods and soup. It makes me very full.

More than just the chic and boy
Smile 2012-09-20
My friends would often go here usually after a drinking session. That's usually some time after midnight already, or even early morning. Usually when you're intoxicated you would want something oily and filling. So this was the first place that came into mind.

But more than just their chicken and their liempo, I really love their Lumpiang Sariwa. It is the perfect appetizer to the liempo feast that I will have soon after.

I'm an Aklanon. And our lechon is simply the best of its kind, with its crunchy skin, and it's tender and flavorful meat. It's made even more special with a bunch of lemon grass or tanglad added to it. So here in Manila, it's kinda hard to look for a lechon that is somewhat like how they do it in Aklan.

Thankfully, Chic Boy happened. With its Ilonggo owners, they know how to make the same lechon. With the same flavors and the same liempo recipe, there now is a place where I could truly say that serves really good lechon. And with some branches open for 24 hours, you now have a go-to place after those drinking sessions that make you crave for something oily yet really good.

Gising-Gising sa Saraaap!

It’s another Chic-boy experience and I might say that I enjoy dining in with this fast food restaurant because of its good food at affordably price.

The ambiance : Well expect that the crowd is really huge because this is a fast food and common people used to dine here most especially during lunch and dinner.

 

What I tried : I started my meal with a free soup! Yes it’s free, and it was plain good. I love their idea of serving this complimentary bowl while waiting for your order to be served.

 

Gising-Gising: this dish is only Php55 and my favorite amongst all! I love how the veggies were cooked and the hotness is just middling, tolerable yet there’s an impact that you just wanna eat and eat until it’s gone! I would definitely order this one again!

 

Torones con Leche : I had this for my dessert. It’s a six small turon with a caramelized dip. The crew will ask you to inform them when you want it to be served since it’s best when served hot. Turones con Leche is definely good for sharing at affordably Php30!

Chibugan ng mga Chic at Boy
Smile 2011-04-07

Anybody who works for long hours every day deserves must receive a very rewarding treat once in a while. That particular Friday, we all felt stressed and hungry; thank God it was Kuya Mike’s 5th year in the company! Hurrah! What we are excited about that day was not his long term in the company but the treat (it’s just a joke Kuya tongue).

Good thing our office is near Makati City Hall where there’s a restaurant best for us chicks and boys—Chic-Boy. Chic-Boy is short name for “Chicken and Baboy.”

My officemates and I sought the most comfortable seats in the restaurant while the celebrant ordered. We waited for not more than 10 minutes and I was impressed by the fats service.

Trainee (since most of them has trainee pin) served us the tasty ginisang kangkong sa bawang. The kangkong’s aroma was very pleasant it made us hungrier. The house soup is not like the ordinary soup served in other restaurants’ soup.

   Ginisang Kangkong sa Bawang, P30

Trainee served the famous Cebu Lechon Manok and Cebu Lechon Liempo, pork barbeque, gising-gising (chili chopsuey, P55), tuna sisig (P75) and lots of rice.

   Cebu Lechon Liempo, P99

We availed the rice all you can for any Chibog Busog Meals. The price is only P99 which does not break the bank.

 Sugod mga kapatid!! :D

The Cebu Lechon Manok is not like any ordinary lechon manok I have ever tasted. The tanglad and spices made the chicken tender and tasty. The best sauce for the chicken is still the combination of soy sauce, calamansi and a piece of bird’s eye chili (siling labuyo). The flavor of Cebu Lechon Liempo stands out particularly when dipped in its vinegar.

 

 Me and Kambal ♥

All of us were satisfied with the food we have eaten. Like his tummy says, “I like this restaurant.”

 Hindi ko tummy yan :P

Chic Boy!
Smile 2010-11-01
Great food doesn’t necessarily have to come at a price. There’s a new affordable (almost dare to say cheap) food discovery along Jupiter Street in Makati that’s already making waves with the folks that work around the area. Call on the Chic Boy. Chic-Boy is actually a play on the words Chicken and Baboy (pork) –the meats that are quite popular in the Filipino community particularly when it’s grilled.

Chic-Boy restaurant is another venture of Pier One Bar and Grill Holdings Corporation, the company behind the very successful Pier One Bar and Grill restaurant chain in the Philippines. There has been a surge of chicken inasal restaurants in the Metro with the increasing demand of the market for inasal, which Bacolod popularized. Heck, even a well-liked fastfood chain included “inasal” or barbecued chicken in their offerings.

Chic Boy is putting a whole new turn on chicken inasal, lechon manok and lechon liempo like you’ve never tasted before. They’ve taken a special secret recipe of tasty lechon manok and lechon liempo in Cebu and chicken inasal of Bacolod and put it all in one easy-breezy and affordable restaurant here in Manila.

Add to the list of things to like at Chic Boy the fact that they have different sauces on the table available for your dipping preference. Other than the usual sauces for the chicken inasal, lechon sauce and special vinegar sauce are offered with your “already-tasty” lechon. Get this –toasted garlic and chicken oil are available too. Put as many as you’d like on your rice! And if you think cheap price and great tasting food aren’t enough, Chic Boy is open 24 hours!!!

Lunch out at Chic-Boy Makati
Just OK 2010-10-17
You might wonder why the restaurant chose the name Chic-boy. Is it a place where men can fool around and find some loving? A place specific only for lover boys finding some women targets? Apparently, it is not, in any way, related to being a lady-magnet. Chic-Boy is the combination of chicken and baboy (pig) inasal. It is an upgrade of the usual chicken inasals and employs the pig approach of inasals.

Environment
Chic-boy has almost the same lay out and design as Chicken Inasal which made me wonder if the establishment was under the management of Chicken Inasal. They have the same wooden tables and chairs, provides a non-aircondition open space and a air-conditioned area and the order counter also looks the same. It is practically simple, clean and comfortable to dine in with.

Food
We ordered a sizzling sisig, chicken inasals, pork liempo, sauteed kangkong and bottomless iced teas for drinks. The sizzling sisig has great taste however it is served in a small circular sizzling plate. I assumed that it is only for single serving. The sauteed kangkong stalks had a very good taste considering one order only cost around P30. It has the right blend of crispiness and juiciness in it. And the garlic taste was prominent but delightful. The Pork liempo and chicken inasals were cooked well but the real great tasting is the vinegar that comes with the order. The vinegar has the perfect blend of spicy, sweet, and vinegary. In terms of the bottomless iced tea, even though the price of their iced tea is practically less than other restaurant, I wasn't able to enjoy the taste of it. It tasted diluted with added sugar rather than the tea.

Price
It carries the same price range of Chicken Inasals. P200 will go a long way and will able to give you a decent and delightful meal complete with side dishes, drinks and can even toss a dessert on the side

Conclusion
It didn't wow me since I have been in many restaurants that serves chicken inasal. I didn't find anything extraordinary or unique that will let me separate them from other chicken inasals out there. In short, it is incapable of leaving its mark on me and my friends.

Eating Chicken, Baboy, atbp at Chic-Boy
Smile 2010-10-16
Friday night chill out with the barkada. Liz has been telling me about this place for quite some time and this Friday, I decided to try it out. They’ve been to this place a few times now and I’m hearing good things about this new tambayan in the Makati Avenue – Jupiter area. My friends and I have booked our tickets to Singapore this November and we’re gonna meet up to discuss our travel plans. What better way to talk about our vacay? Over good food and beer, of course!

First up, the place. I’m giving full points for the ambiance and design of this restaurant. It was well lit, has high ceilings, and a nice wash area. This was a fairly new place along Jupiter which I guess explains the cool interior and cleanliness. Their smoking area is right up front while the non smoking airconditioned area is inside. The place was not crowded, considering it was post Friday.

Of course, there’s always the food. Their primary food fayre are chicken and pork, hence the name chic-boy (chicken at baboy). Their menu is mostly grilled and then there are their sizzling plates. Fast food style, you have to go up to the counter and order your favorite inihaw.

The sizzling bangus belly is big, a plus because it’s priced at just 85pesos. The mushroom gravy on top of the bangus was a bit weird for me, though. It was OK but I prefer my bangus with soysauce, sili and calamansi.

The pork and tuna sisig were both crispy and flavorful. It was very nice to pair with beer. Their Cebu lechon liempo tasted ordinary, but I am not complaining. San Miguel beer, which is priced at 180pesos a bucket, was served really cold. 6 beers for this much? Yumyum.

The lumpiang ubod was average, but I’m giving a plus point to the lumpia eggroll wrapper they used. The peanut sauce is a bit too sweet to my liking.

Tsichen and Niz ordered the turon (banana rolls) dessert. On their picture menu board, I first thought their lumpiang shanghai was misplaced because it was right next to desserts and drinks. Their turon was served in lumpiang shanghai sizes with caramel dipping sauce. The turon itself was bland, you really have to dip it to give it a sweet taste. I think it would be better if they would roll the saba banana in sugar before wrapping it up to give it more flavor.

Service was good and fast, until you ask for iced tea refill. At just 25 pesos with any meal, it was a sure steal, right? But we had to call several waiters’ attention three to four times before they gave us a refill. Marky even had a feeling that they really didn’t want to refill it because one the staff promised that he would, but never did. Oh well, you can’t have it all, I guess.

Would I return to ChicBoy? Yes. There aren’t many places now where you could enjoy food that is cheap and beer is cold.
