food review: RAZON’s of GUAGUA’s “HALO-HALO”

Razon's Halo-halo

Whenever you heard the food place named “Razon’s of Guagua”… the first thing that comes to your mind is their famous “Halo-Halo”.

Compared to the price of other Halo-Halo in town, I can say that it is not budget-friendly as the others. But, when I’ve tasted it… it convinced me that it deserves its price of P100 per tall glass. In my own opinion, what made Razon’s Halo-Halo special¬† despite the simple, clean, and not so colorful look is its finely shaved creamy ice that when tasted… feels smooth on the tongue. Sweet macapuno and bananas, poured with creamy milk, and topped with leche flan adds up to the said dessert to be more flavorful. Though with less usual Halo-Halo ingredients compared to others… all I can say is that, it’s all in the ice! And you’ll be wanting some more.

food review: CHOWKING’s ORANGE CHICKEN

Chowking's Orange Chicken

One meal included in Chowking restaurant’s menu caught my attention if it really taste good as a food combination.¬† So, as a certified foodie… I have to try it out!

In one of their restaurant branches, I ordered their “Orange Chicken rice Meal with drink” for one person. They gave me a number in the counter and ask me to wait for it for some few minutes. Well, while waiting for my order… I just observe how their crews move and accommodate their customers. I can say that they were courteous yet fully occupied with some task. Finally, my order was served after 16 minutes of waiting. It’s quite a long wait but excusable because the food was served hot enough to be eaten and with a little apology plus a smile from the service crew who brought me my order. Aside from the fact, that I can see that the lines on their counter were longer and that there’s still many arriving customers.

Here’s my verdict for the food, I didn’t expect that a combination of the light sweetness and slight sourness of the orange taste well with the chicken. The chicken is rightly cooked and tender enough to be chewed. Although, the meal was served with few slices of the chicken meat. But, the sauce in the “Orange Chicken” compliments the chicken meat and the orange carpels and it really tastes good. I have to admit that my taste buds loved it. Moreover, it fits to be a viand on plain rice or even on fried rice… knowing that Filipinos cannot have a complete meal without rice. I’m happy that I’ve tried tasting it. Yup, why would “Chowking” include it on their menu if it’s not yummy. I should say that they’ve added an asset meal on their menu.

All I can say is that, if pineapple goes well with chicken in “Pininyahang Manok“, why not an orange with chicken!
