Last October was the very first time I set foot in the laid-back city of General Santos. It was for work and we were only going to be there overnight.
So, soon as we settled in, I told my boss that I'll go around town and find a place to eat. He wanted to rest so I went alone.
And since I didn't know the place, Google was my bestfriend. The most common place that Google gave was the Chicken Hauz. And fortunately, it was a 2-minute walking distance from our hotel.
I came in just a little later after lunch so it wasn't crowded. Locals were eating and it didn't look like it was something that tourists flock. I briefly scanned the menu and settled for their combo meal instead: it had their famous buttered garlic chicken and kinilaw na tuna with iced tea for Php150+
When it arrived, it was placed on a plate that reminded me of cafeterias in school. There was a small portion pf kinilaw and small pieces of chicken. The chicken was ok, tasty even the meat.. but it was something that I will not crave for. I was very disappointed with the kinilaw. It was FROZEN. Like literally I sunk my teeth into thin ice before I got to the flesh of the tuna. I cringed of ngilo.
And the acidity from the vinegar used could make your dormant hyperacidity come to life.
I was disappointed. VERY disappointed. Because you know, it's GenSan for gosh sakes! The city of Tuna!

We have always liked Chicken Hauz's garlic chicken. Around 150 bucks for half a chicken and the butter-y and garlicky fried chicken are ours.
This restaurant is also one of the long staying restaurants in the city. It's an air conditioned lutong bahay of sorts. I think they have more than two branches here.
Taste was still delicious but not as awesome-ly good as before.
