Food Trip : Manang's Chicken

Manang's Chicken was first introduce to me by Che my friend in Meracato ( food market) at The Fort Taguig City. At first i thought that ti was just an ordinary crispy chicken, but i was wrong when i tasted it and that's why me and my partner search for the nearest store of Manang's right away, because we are craving for more. So we search the internet and look for there website or Facebook page and we found out that they have a nearest store in our place. So we visit there branch in AIC tower near Robinsons Galleria. Good thing it's Saturday morning and no long queue. So let me tell you why Manang's Chicken is the our mouth watering food for this month.

Food Review: Pichi pichi with cheese

Pichi pichi is one of Filipinos delicacies here in manila. This is compose of grated cassava, sugar and lye water. Pichi pichi texture is really soft,sticky and gelatinous.They just mix the ingredients and steam it. Most pichi pichi are coated with grated coconut and some times they add flavors on it, like pandan, pinipig etc. But now some one invented pichi pichi coated with cheese, i don't now who, but i like it.

Good thing my friend che brought us a special pichi - pichi made by Arny and Dadings store and they name Pichi - pichi as peachey - peachey a possible name of there mom or their daughter.
