Before KFC hit Philippine shores, there was Max’s Fried Chicken— piping hot, wrapped in aluminum foil, and served with banana ketchup.
We used to eat that in my (grandmother) Mama’s house in Quezon City.
This is where the kids used to eat. You can see the dining room in the back, that’s where I ate Max’s on a tin foil.
Years later, when Kentucky Fried Chicken was introduced in the Philippines, we all had to try. We ordered a bucket, which we shared at Mama’s house. My favorite part are the wings. Just give me two wings, rice, Coke and I’m a happy camper.
Would you believe I ate KFC everyday for four years? They used to offer a “brown bagger” for Php 35 back the ’80s, which was one thigh (original recipe) with mash and gravy inside a brown paper bag.
I used to buy that everyday after school. If I had saved all the money I spend on takeout food instead of eating at home, I could probably buy a log cabin by now…
Sometime in the ’90s, they found out fried wasn’t sogood. They dropped the name “Kentucky Fried Chicken” and called it KFC.
With so many food choices, I no longer eat KFC everyday, but there are days I really crave for chicken coated in 11 herbs and spices. Just give me two or three wings, rice, Coke and I’m good to go. Don’t forget the gravy.
Every time I have to attend a long, fancy dinner or a wedding that takes up your entire day only to eat tedious food, I always say, “I’d rather have KFC.” Because it’s fast, simple and oh sogood.
KFC chicken was originally developed by Colonel Sanders in 1940 in Kentucky.
I’ve tried KFC in other cities like Hong Kong, New York, Tokyo, Ho Chi Min and Houston to name a few.
It doesn’t taste exactly the same in each country, but I’m happy to report that the Philippines’ KFC is really tasty.
What’s more gravy is refillable for free when you dine in-store, compared with Hong Kong where gravy isn’t free.
Everyone has their favorites. My kids love their Funshots, my husband prefers hot and spicy chicken breast.
If you prefer bread, there are Twisters wraps and spicy Zinger sandwiches.
Wash down with KFC Krushers or finish with a brownie.
Let’s not forget KFC’s most sinful offering, the Double Down, which has two chicken patties, bacon, cheese and special sauce.
Now KFC embarks on a globally aligned 360-degree campaign—a first in the company’s history—which aims to spread KFC love and that sogood feeling throughout the world.
As part of this, KFC Philippines is giving its customers the chance to share sogood moments through its website and official Facebook page, where KFC buckets are up for grabs, for you to share with families or friends.
Stand by for my KFC giveaway. But don’t just sit there. Why don’t you make someone feel sogood today?
