Busog Ang Bulsa at Tyan sa Chic-Boy

CHICBOY: is the common term used by many Filipinos to a guy who has many girlfriends derived from two words "chicks" meaning girls and "boy" which refers to the dude. 
This term is now often affiliated with the Pinoy Restaurant CHIC-BOY (chicken at baboy). Whoever gave that name to the restaurant is really smart because it is very Filipino and it clearly indicates what its specialties are. 
CHIC-BOY's closest competitor is Mang Inasal since they both offer almost the same menu having Chicken Inasal as one of their specialties. 

Me and my kid got stuck at Munoz when it rained one Saturday night so I decided to have dinner first while we wait for the rain to subside. The first restaurant that you will see when you enter Jackman Mall is Chic-Boy and beside that is Mang Inasal. I was torn where to eat, but I decided to go for Chic-Boy when I saw their ad on Spaghetti worth P44 only because my kid loves Spag. 
What I also like about Chic-Boy is that they have more choices in menu and I remember having a bad experience at Mang Inasal where the chicken was really tiny and the sinigang na boneless bangus only had 1/4 half-sliced piece in it. The restaurant was spacious and we sat in this long bench so that my kid have more room to play while eating. As you can see he had fun playing with the toothpick.



I ordered Spaghetti worth P44 for him and I got the Chibog Busog Meal Chicken Inasal (Petso part of the chicken) which is worth P99 and that included unlimited rice and soup. So total bill is less than P150. Perfect for Pinoys who have a huge appetite, but has a limited budget. 
The spaghetti has real cheese on top unlike Manang's Chicken and it tasted just okay for me (since I prefer Italian-style spaghetti) but my kid loved it so it must be good.

I did not drink the soup much, but it tasted like sinigang. The Pecho is slightly burnt, but it still tasted good and it is quite huge so I shared some of it with my kid. He actually ate a lot that night, finishing the spaghetti and even ate chicken inasal with rice. The rice is wrapped in pandan leaf to give it that aromatic flavor. It is best poured with chicken oil, but not too much or else you might end up feeling dizzy. 
I tried to limit myself into eating only 1 and a half rice even if I wanted to eat more. My overall dining experience at Chic-Boy was better than Mang Inasal so if I get to choose between those two restaurants, I would certainly go for Chic-Boy again...because there are more choices and the food tastes better.
Here is the Chic-Boy Menu happy eating!

UPDATE: I returned to Chic-Boy yesterday and decided to order for the Lechon Cebu which is worth P125 with unlimited rice and soup. Add P25 and you get unlimited iced tea. 
I was expecting the real Lechon Cebu (roasted pork), but it was grilled lechon kawali so I was a bit disappointed. If I was expecting lechon kawali, then I would really be delighted because the pork was tasty and cooked just right. I can even eat the pork fat and skin even if they were not that crunchy because it was not that oily. The suka (vinegar) was a perfect match for the grilled pork. I actually finished 1 and a half rice with this meal...SATISFIED!

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…

Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce

Since Beef are more expensive than Pork, I end up buying Pork Steak rather than Beef Steak for lunch. I am going to share this easy recipe that both kids and adults would love called "Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce". There are two ways of preparing this dish: 
First: You can bread the pork steak, fry it and then cook the sauce separately before smothering them on the fried pork steak. 
Second: I chose this version because my kid have a hard time chewing meat so I need to make sure that the pork is really tender. Here is my simple recipe: 

Ingredients: 
1/2 kilo of Pork Steak (marinated in calamansi, soy sauce and pepper)
2 large onions (sliced thinly)
Instant Gravy (dissolved in water)
Pork drippings from the boiled pork
1 tablespoon butter

Procedure:

1. Add 1 cup of water on the marinated Pork Steak, then boil it for approximately 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. Make sure to check it from time to time to avoid the meat from getting dried up. Add water if needed.

2. Remo…
