Beyond Manila Bites: Lucky Chick

Here's the second event of the Beyond Manila Bites food crawl series: Global Meets Local! The event was held at UP Town Center where we featured EIGHT of the metro's international and local best comfort food stores!



Last August 13, 2016, Global Meets Local brought together people from different fields of the food industry and other influencers for a whole day food celebration at UP Town Center! Through this series, ForkSpoonManila (Alexis Manuel Deocaris) overhauled the traditional food crawl where the media and influencers can share their experiences and impressions regarding the food, through of course, social media. During the event, we not only got to socialize with each other, but more importantly, we met a lot of the people behind these restaurants and discovered the stories behind their dishes and store concepts.

For me, the event was also a great way to sharpen my photography skills. Even though people were technically taking pictures of the same dishes, all our photos came out so differently! So yes, I definitely learned a few things from people like Cy Ynares (@thebaldbakerph), Iza Gallego (@iza.gram), Mark and Bianca Tan (@eatsplorations), JP Gonzaga (@chubbyperohappy), and Lucky Alabado (@discovermnl)! Check out the posts on Instagram tagged #BeyondManilaBites to see for yourself :)
Lucky Chick
Lucky Chick is inspired by the concept of fried chicken houses in the US, wherein they serve higher quality southern fried chicken done with better ingredients versus the ones that are normally found in fast food chains. Their southern-style chicken is less greasy, less oily, and more flavorful with better skin. Another characteristic of these fried chicken houses is the craftsmanship put into their side dishes. Usually sides are just considered as "tummy fillers" to accompany the meal, but with Lucky Chick, they want the sides to accentuate the meal and elevate the whole experience. Once the chicken, gravy, and the sides come together, the result will be greater than the sum of its parts.

What we tried: Original, Hot Chick, and Lemon + Garlic Chicken, Hot Chick Sandwich, Sweet and Spicy (Waffle Burger), Banana Pudding, Chicken Skin and their newest flavors namely Asian Orange, Barbecue, and Sriracha Butter!
