Chicken is the only meat that I can eat every day. Of course, I do love pork, beef, and fish, but I can't live without eating chicken.
My chicken cravings led me to two places I have visited and loved before: Red Buffalo and Boon Tong Kee.
Yearning for a taste of Hainanese Style Chicken made me urge my friends to have lunch at Boon Tong Kee, SM Mall of Asia. Unlike the crowded Tomas Morato branch where I went to a few months back, the place was practically empty, maybe because it was a weekday.
We indulged with their Signature Boiled Chicken (Php 455 for half) with their Chicken Rice. We also had Fried Sole Fillet in Black Pepper Sauce (Php 295), though my friend requested that the sauce be served separately.

The food was so delicious, and the service was outstanding that we didn't mind the poor ventilation during the visit. Boon Tong Kee will always be my go-to place for authentic Hainanese chicken.
Late-night hunger brought me and my date to one of my favorite wings resto, Red Buffalo Wings & Pizza. Excuse my indulgence for the deep-fried, but I simply cannot resist their Parmesan Garlic Wings (Php 165, 5 pcs).

My date let me finish my wings while he enjoyed Red Buffalo's Vegetarian Pizza (Php 335).
It's a sin to visit Red Buffalo and not try their pizzas. I think it's one of the best-tasting thin-crust pizzas in the metro. I'll bet my life on it.
Are you a regular chicken eater like me? What's your favorite chicken dish?
