On a visit to Manila in 2012, wandering around the hotel in search of a late-night snack, I’d stopped by Chic-Boy, knowing nothing about the place. Knowing nothing about its signature item, I ordered a half-bird on faith and took it back to my room. I was totally blown away (see 3.243 3.243 Seafood Platter + Pancit Bihon + Ihaw Pusit). Since then, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
On the final night of my recent trip, before heading to the airport, I dropped by the restaurant, ordered a whole bird for takeout, and brought it home. Two days later, reheated in the oven, the chicken wasn’t so spectacular. Oh well. Maybe next time.
