Manang’s Chicken – ang bagong fried chicken ng Pinoy

It was 2011 when I had my first taste of the famous double deep fried crispy chicken from Manang’s Chicken. I remember that was at Mercato Centrale. What I like most about their chicken is the crunchiness of the skin and the flavor of the soy garlic sauce that just hits the spot.

Now, I’m happy that Manang’s Chicken is introducing new items on their menu. My friend Sha and I got to try their Manang’s Chips & Dips, Garlic Pork Rice Meal and Red Velvet sundae.

Manang’s Chips & Dips are all natural potato chips that are fried to golden perfection. You can choose from creamy cheese, garlic may or spicy ketchup or have all three as your dips.

Their new entree, Garlic Pork Rice Meal, gives a different twist to the boring “Pork Chop” as their version has special garlic topping. The vinegar dipping sauce is a perfect match for this treat.

Enjoy it with a choice of sides. We had buttered corn and macaroni salad.

Of course we had Manang’s Chicken double deep fried chicken. Ang sarap papakin!

We ended our meal with these… 2 cups of Red Velvet sundae. The red velvet cake at the bottom was served warm. I like how the warm cake and the ice cream mixed in my mouth. Sweeeeeeet ending.

What I like about Manang’s Chicken is that they serve food that matches the Filipino palate, the affordable meals, the size of their servings that are just right to what I pay for.

Clap, clap for Manang’s Chicken. I’ll drop by for some Red Velvet sundae one of these days. Absolutely perfect to beat the heat this summer.

AC RUMPA- Angeles City, Pampanga

AC Rumpa, short for Angeles City Retired US Military Personnel Association, serves classic American- Spanish influenced food. It is by far my favorite restaurant in Pampanga. I remember it was my cousin Ate Maya who introduced to me Rumpa more than five years ago. I’m so glad she did. From then on, Rumpa has become part of the itinerary every time we go to Pampanga. Just like last February when we were in Angeles City for the Hot Air Balloon festival.

We went to Rumpa twice that day, one was for lunch and the other was for take-out dinner.  It was our last stop before heading home to Manila   🙂

Good Ol' wooden sign

The interior gives a cozy feel, with dimmed lights and a blend of natural colors of the wall and furniture.

Neutral colors...basic and bold

Ready to be filled up with hungry customers

yum!!!

On the table:

The House Salad priced less than Php150 is good for sharing. The huge plate consists of lettuce, strips of green bell pepper and carrots, onion slices, tomato, ham, egg and cheese. It comes with thousand island dressing and crackers on the side.

The crispiness of the fresh veggies makes it special. They could however improve on the dressing.

Caesar Salad with crackers on the side...

Next is the Spaghetti Bolognese which Baloogs and I shared. It is served with toasted bread with butter. The thick tomato sauce is loaded with meat. It didn’t leave any impression on how it tasted. What stuck on my mind was the generous serving and that grated cheddar cheese was used instead of parmesan.

Rumpa’s BBQ Spareribs is one of their best-sellers. This keeps me coming back to Rumpa. Its tender, fall off the bone meat is heavenly delicious. With less than Php 200, you seriously can now have ribs that are as good if not better than all the famous rib places.

It’s coated with rich, thick barbecue sauce that’s absolutely lip smacking. We love eating it with the sweet, tangy barbecue sauce poured on hot rice. Yum!

It’s so good that we each ordered a plate of this.  🙂

House Specialty....BBQ Spare ribs

This is what I had for dinner, Rumpa’s Burrito. Two large burritos for less than Php150. It’s loaded with beef, refried beans, onion, and cheese. It’s actually a “wet burrito” or enchilada style burrito, as it is smothered with red chili sauce. I like how the sauce covered the entire burrito; really delicioso! I just added hot sauce from taco bell since I wanted it HOT. Burrito locos can get true value for money as this Rumpa specialty promises a satisfying meal.

My Burrito to go...

I give AC Rumpa a clap…clap…clap for the excellent food, quick service, and value for money.
