Comfort food from New York has inspired the owners to open up another restaurant that treats us to a favorite household dish which adults and children alike enjoy – FRIED CHICKEN.
Lucky Chick is located at the 2nd floor of UP Town Center where Skull and Bones used to be, but this time we’re getting lucky because they’re offering us the crispiest chick in town! In addition to that, we have a choice of either of the 3 Gravies – Original, Honey, and Apple Cider.
Who doesn’t love the good ‘ol Fried Chicken? Just looking at the photos and writing about it is already making my mouth water. Above is their Original Chicken but personally I prefer the Hot Chick as it offered a more distinct taste more than the usual original chicken. It only had a hint of spiciness to it so I presume it’s tolerable even for those who dislike spicy food.
There are different packaged meals in ordering here.
Should you opt for the Luckier Meal, we have a choice of the following sides.
At that time they offered Garlic / Plain Rice, Coleslaw, Biscuit, Donut, Mashed Potato, Corn and Carrots, Mac and Cheese, and Corn Muffins.
But in their revamped menu, they now have Fries, Waffle, Hashbrown Caserole, Corn on the Cob, and Green Peas.
I liked their Mac and Cheese and Mashed Potato – Carbs galore. You can never go wrong with that as well as their corn and carrots and rice especially if you only have 1 provision for a side dish. Their biscuit had some time getting used to as well as their donut which is made in their kitchen.
I also got to try their Spaghetti and Meatballs (Php 180) which is more Italian than Filipino as it was more sour than sweet. It was a good alternative to the chicken dishes.
But of course, when there are times that we feel like eating a sandwich, their Pulled Pork (Php 200) is worth a try. It had a generous amount of pulled pork and it was filling too.
They also had Fish Fillet (Php 160) as an option from the chicken dishes, served with rice and fries. yum!
But the truth is that even with all the yummy alternatives, I’d still go for their Chicken Meal when I return
For the best part of the meal, (next to chicken of course), we had a slice of Pecan Pie (Php 200) which I think my husband would enjoy more as I would say it had a more “mature” taste and it is something a specific market would enjoy.
And as for me I’d go for the ultimate comfort dessert, Ice Cream Sandwich (Php 150)
Imagine cold creamy vanilla ice cream sandwiched in freshly baked Choco Chip Cookies. My dentist would surely disapprove with the hot and cold combination. But in any case, it is the best food solution to the blues. The instant mood booster.
Overall Lucky Chick is a place with a relatively new take to chicken with their different gravies and sides. Their menu had so much variety of comfort food which is the trademark of the owners as they also own a string of restaurants; my favorite Borough, Nolita, The Bowery, and L.E.S. Bagels. Truly they have mastered the art of offering comfort food in Manila.
For those who can’t have enough of Chicken, On May 28, Lucky Chick is offering UNLIMITED Chicken and Rice for Php 298 only! Be there during LUNCH and DINNER time from 11AM-1PM and 5-7PM.
