Manang's Chicken [Mercato Centrale]

It took me awhile to publish this post mainly because each time I open the draft, I seem to be at a loss for superlatives to use to describe Manang's Chicken.

Sino si Manang?

When you are in Mercato Centrale (or Midnight Mercato), you'll sure find a long line in Manang's Chicken's booth. People are raving about its being 'way lot better than BonChon chicken' which I also have yet to taste. And so, for the past consecutive weekends me and my family were in Mercato we made sure to eat and take home some.


Manang's Chicken takes pride in their 'double deep fried' chicken which makes it really crispy. Pair it with their 'secret soy garlic sauce' to make it even more heavenly


We've tried their original and mild spicy sauces already and find the mild spicy ones better. I suggest you choose the wing parts as the meat does not dry out too fast and you'd be assured of a messy yet delightful eating experience.

...and the Midnight Mercato.
I am a certified 'chicken' fan and tasting another take on it is a welcome addition. For 6pcs of chicken, you pay Php120 (add and Php20 if you want rice or macaroni salad with it) and it's not bad at all since most chicken wings around sells for about Php100++ with less than half a dozen.


How I wish that the chicken's texture stays the same even if we travel a few km away from BGC and put the wings in the fridge overnight for the next day's picking. I've tried ways to preserve the crispiness and juiciness but sadly, I haven't been successful yet.


Manang's Chicken is definitely a must-try! Good food and somehow friendly on the pocket. Make sure you savor every bite and lick all those bones to complete the uber-delish chicken experience!
