|Honey Garlic Chicken|
Now this is the second time I ordered for the Honey Garlic Chicken from Chowking. Well it's not like an over the top chicken dish, but it's worth trying once in a while. And for only Php87 (without drink), it's an affordable Chinese meal in a bowl. Their website states:
Perfectly fried chicken with a flavorful juicy meat, coated with a special sauce that combines the natural sweetness of honey with subtle notes of garlic. Served with sauteed vegetables, boiled egg, toasted garlic bits over a bowl of steamed rice.
The sauce may be too much, quite powerful for its taste and too saucy, almost covering the whole rice bowl. But don't get me wrong, I still like this dish - it's savory, the crunchiness of the chicken despite being covered with honey sauce. The egg slices and vegetables gives a good balance.
I just expected too much to get that garlic taste (I love garlic chicken!)because I could clearly see the crushed garlic bits, honey made the whole dish more sweeter. It's okay, as honey provides many health benefits.
