Aldous invited us to just hang and try out Chicken Charlie. Here’s what we had that night of pigging (or should I say chicken-ing??!!) out.
I ordered their Milo Dino because it is one of their bestsellers. I was kind of hesitant at first if it will go well with their soy-garlic chicken, but it turned out to be okay. the flavor of our favorite Milo drink was rich and too sweet for me (well, I really find Milo too sweet so that’s why). The surprise came in when I slurped some bits of jelly at the bottom.
They let me try Charlie’s Signature Burger. It came with their soy-chicken fillet patty with veggies and dressing. The sandwich is bigger that your typical fast food chicken fillet sandwiches.
For sharing, we ordered their chicken basket which came with 8 pcs of chicken. You can choose if you want itspicy or just their original soy-garlic.
Their soy-garlic chicken is a bit mellow and more of the garlic taste as compare to the famous soy-garlic chicken of some known fast-food brands. It doesn’t have any hint of sweetness, which I liked. I liked that their chicken was freshly fried when served, including the fries so it was crunchy good. I just find the fries too salty, I should have just asked for the unsalted fries and add the salt myself.
Overall, it was a good dinner. Pleasant conversation with friends over good food served fast food style. I liked Chicken Charlie better than the big fast food chains for the taste of real food is still there. I hope they do open a near branch in Ayala Makati.
Where is your favorite fried chicken place?
