Chunky Boy Drunken Barbeque
When I first visited Chunky Boy and checked out their menu (that was over a year ago), I found it expensive. However, when we visited Chunky Boy a few days ago, we were able to dine here and say that their prices were reasonable. What changed? The prices didn’t get lower (might have increased even). But before I answer that, let me share to you what we ate.
Chunky Boy’s Drunken Pork BBQ – PHP 22 / stick
This was one of their specialties. It tasted normal to me. The vinegar dip wasn’t that strong (sour enough) so you can still savor the BBQ sauce.
Chunky Boy’s Chicken Sinigang – PHP 145.00
I love sinigang (tamarind soup) and I loved how they cooked their chicken sinigang. The sourness was just right and I can already finish my rice meal with just the soup. I missed this kind of sourness for sinigang. This was the main culprit why I was so full that night.
Chunky Boy’s Fish Fillet in Lemon Sauce – PHP 135.00
The fish fillet was soft and had a thin breading. You can taste the fish inside and the Lemon sauce was just right. It was a bit sweet but not too sour (as compared to other lemon sauces I’ve tasted).
We also added warm calamansi juice and was happy to see that they used real calamansi instead of just powder to make the juice!
We certainly enjoyed our dinner here and I was telling myself, why did I not try this sooner as the place was very close to where I live. I gave in to my stingy ways before but I’m glad I decided to check it out again. My mother’s words, “sky’s the limit as long as it is food”, made me realize that I shouldn’t be super stingy with myself when it comes to food. It doesn’t mean that I should just go blind and spend money on all those expensive fine dining restaurants but I became more willing to pay a good price as long as I have enjoyed the food and the company I’m with.
Oh btw, they are open 24/7 I believe and they also have a karaoke (calling the beer boys lol).
Jessa and I dined here as part of our 8th Monthsary Activities. :)
