Sorry for the late post. Ive been busy with overtime in our office including restday ot yesterday. You know naman that i need this overtime pay for the upcoming holiday (christmas). Hubby and i planned of not spending his whole salary for the extension of our house that's why my salary became the budget for the household expenses...
Anyway, i didn't report to work last tuesday because of my grumbling tummy. I dont know if its LBM or what basta masama ang tyan ko... After drinking imodium naging ok na sya :) Hubby and I went to MOA then for the IOS 5 upgrading of his phone and we drop by Power Mac Center and look for a nice case for his iPhone, mahal pala ng Otter case no? So alam na kung san naubos ang pera na budget ko for christmas... sa phone lang nya and its accessories... Ngayon ko lang na-realize na ang mahal palang mag-30th bday tapos sumabay pa ang anniv namin.. Would you believe that we spend more than 70k for that? this does not include hubby's gift to me pa ha kasi di ko alam ang price nun. Take note walang credit card installment yan ha kasi mahirap pag maraming iniisip na bayarin, tama na yung Pag-ibig monthly amortization lang namin ang iisipin namin... And now my christmas budget is gone.. huhu...
Anyway, back to the main focus of this entry, El Pollo Loco :)
Before going to the Power Mac Center in MOA, we had breakfast first in El Pollo Loco. Ive known this restaurant for more than years because one of our ninongs in our wedding is actually the Finance Manager of this company and this will be our first time to eat in the restaurant although ive tried the food in his office before kaya medyo familiar na ko sa menu especially with my fave tortilla and taquitos.
El Pollo Loco, pronounced “L Po-yo Lo-co” and Spanish for “The Crazy Chicken,” is the Philippines' leading quick-service restaurant chain specializing in flame-grilled chicken (the healthiest chicken in town).
El Pollo Loco’s long-term success stems from the unique preparation of its award-winning “pollo”-- fresh chicken marinated in a special recipe of herbs, spices and citrus juices passed down from the founding family. The marinated chicken is then flame-grilled, hand cut and served hot off the grill with warm tortillas and a wide assortment of side dishes.
Through the years, El Pollo Loco has demonstrated a strong commitment to menu innovation, introducing a wide variety of fresh flavorful entrées inspired by the kitchens of Mexico. Along with meals featuring its famous citrus-marinated, flame-grilled chicken, El Pollo Loco favorites now also include made-to-order signature grilled burritos, The Original Pollo Bowl®, Pollo Salads, Tacos al Carbon, quesadillas, Chicken Tortilla Soup and more.
Today, El Pollo Loco Philippines is the nation’s most promising chicken leader with restaurants in Mandaluyong City, Pasay City, and Quezon City.
The chain is expanding nationwide and bringing its delicious fresh, natural flame-grilled chicken and fresh Mexican entrées to people across the nation.
Its too early pa kaya konti pa lang ang diners.
Is this space alloted for parties? Can someone enlighten me?
We were given this flyer and i think the meal is too big for us so we just look in the menu board and choose what is enough for us.
Hubby ordered 2-piece chicken accompanied with Spanish rice and ordered another extra rice.
According to him, Chicken is cooked just right, flame-grilled and not burned to crisp and the meat was tender. Hubby actually liked it but not the rice...
For me naman, i like Pollo loco's chicken maybe because it's quite different with fast food chicken like KFC and Jollibee. Its marinated to herbs and spices and grilled to perfection.
Since im monitoring my tummy i didnt order any heavy meal, instead of chicken and rice, i ordered taquitos.
Our order came with 2 different salsa: Spicy and regular..
I love El Pollo loco's salsa especially with tortilla and taquitos.. Actually eto nga lang ang gusto ko sa El Pollo Loco... hehe
El Pollo is not a really good restaurant but certainly good for a fast food. Affordable meal at its best. As im typing this, i wanna go back now and buy tortilla or taquitos.
