Food Reviews Manila Manang's Chicken Original Wings
A new breed of fried chicken has slowly been pervading the market...

Manang's chicken originated from the owner's family cook (hence the name), who created this double deep fried variation with a secret soy garlic sauce. When they opened in Mercato Centrale, it became an instant hit.

Food Reviews Manila Manang's Chicken Wings
Manang's has the crispy goodness you look for in a fried chicken. I wanted to try the wings since I have a proclivity for dark meat and the wings are prone to be most sauce-penetrated part. As I await my order, I see a few pieces of freshly fried chicken with small shards of skin cracked and peeled off as they lay with their excess oil dripping, eagerly waiting for their next satisfied consumer.

I chose the original and the mild spicy sauce, though there's the hot and spicy too. As the crew effused the sauce onto the chicken, I felt myself drowning in a scent so savory and inviting, it took an amount of self-control to restrain myself from grabbing a piece right then and there.

Food Reviews Manila Manang's Chicken Mild Spicy Wings
An echoing crunch preludes a sweet taste, quite uncommon for a fried chicken, then a tincture of spicy flavor dabs the tongue, with just the right note to give it some layer. In between bites, I feel dots of sesame seeds  sprinkled intermittently for added texture. I realize I like the Original for its sweet soy taste but I prefer the Mild Spicy as it evades a monotonous sapidity. Best eaten sans the utensils, I nibble on the skin, through the meat all the way to the bone, unaware of how unladylike I must appear. I daintily (not!) lick my fingers, smack the tips dry, and a smile escape my lips. A feeling of satisfaction enshrouds my satiated self. I'd lick the sauce off the styro if it weren't for the weird looks from my family. Good work, Manang!
