We used to travel to mall of asia just to have this famous place that serves big and yummy chicken cut fillet. Mall of asia is too far but we endure it just to taste this famous chicken from taiwan!!! If at japan theres sushi and ramen, Korea theres kimchi and bibimbap, for taiwan its all about fried foods, its a food haven for all foodie, and of course the birth place of hotstar.

The place exude vibrant feel, with its baby blue color at every corner, its certainly can make you feel comfy.

We ordered their original chicken fillet at 145 + 45 for drinks and rice, i added another 25 pesos for the smoothie black gulaman. Their chicken comes in original or crispy fried, always goto their original for more crunch, weird right? But original much resemble the actual chicken from taiwan, i had it with barbeque sauce and i suggest you manually add it with spicy powder. Gravy is available at the corner. As for the drink, black gulaman is too sweet but i suggest if its available combine it with almond smoothie for that amazing taste, amazing is an understatement.

we also ordered their crispy fillet and it was also good. Slice each into half and you can taste the best of fish and chicken. Chicken took a while to be cooked, but its was good, just enough thickness to taste the juicyness and did i say it was huge? 128522

Nearest Hot star branch to my place. I was really looking forward to have the same Hot Star experience the first time I had it in Hong Kong. However their chicken tasted really different here... I really wonder why.

Literal na Large Fried Chicken! and it's bigger than my face 128515 I recommend the BBQ Large Friend Chicken (P125 + 40 for rice and drink) and the blue lemonade. They also serve pasta and sandwhich. Very cool place to hang out.

I've been on a low-calorie diet for the longest time and I swear, there are just those days when you feel like eating your heart out without a care in the world.. and by that I mean filling your tummy with fatty, oily and salty fried food.128586

My boyfriend had the BBQ fried chicken while I had the fried fish.. Both came with a cup (or less! Hahaha!) of rice and gravy. I didn't mind the small serving size of the rice because I hardly touched mine. What I loved was the gravy because it kind of reminded me of my high school's canteen where they serve it with porkchop. It's not OA great but kalasa and it's something I grew up to. :) We enjoyed both our orders but unfortunately, my boyfriend had an instant allergy attack because of the MSG.128533 Sayang, I thought we could frequent the place na.

Yes, the chicken was as big as the brown paper bag. Sulit for the price.

But taste-wise? No. I had one in Taiwan and it what we have here is definitely far from the original. Ours has way too much cornstarch, making the breading too tough.

Sorry, but not gonna have this again here in Manila. At least there's something to look forward to when I go back to Taiwan.

Giving it 3 stars for the efficient and friendly staff.

the largest chicken that i have ever seen my entire life lol, the original chicken actually wasn't that good at all but the bbq flavored chicken was okay...One order can feed atleast 3 people, you just have to order extra rice, for a P110 meal it was worth it...

100th review! 127881127882

Had a better experience here today compared to its Baywalk branch. The place was more spacious and servers were very attentive. This time I ordered their BBQ chicken in spicy. The first few bites were good. It was sweet and salty at the same time compared to the large cripsy chicken which didn't have that flavor boost. But once half way through, again, you'll feel the umay and starting to lean on their gravy to finish the chop. The gravy was good though! Glad it was unli and heavily relied on it as I finish off my meal. Still, the experience was a good one!

The chicken was literally large and affordable. It was my second time here and it never failed to give me the 'umay' feeling while you're halfway through eating. 128514 Nevertheless, the taste of the chicken was good. 128077

Hindi ko talaga siya kaya ubusin ng ako lang tho ang sarap niyang papaken.. 128514
Sobrang onti ng serving ng rice, and it cost 20php, sa sobrang onti ng rice at laki ng manok makaka 100php ka na sa kanin di mo parin ubos yun manok. OA? Try it for yourselves.. 128514

We tried the original chicken. The serving was really big! But taste is so-so, not as memorable as other chicken-chop brands or the crispy chicken snacks in milk tea places. It's more of plain salted usual breading without the usual spices and distinct flavor I remember from other Taiwanese chicken chops.

Big ass chicken! Definitely worth your 135 pesos (rice and drink included) but you can also get it ala carte for a hundred ten. Also, try their almond ice cream :) yum!
