The Manang’s Chicken Story

That sweet, salty, crispy, juicy chicken you’re sinking your teeth into has been a staple at our family dining table for the past 20 years. Our beloved cook, affectionately called “Manang,” whipped it up for all of our family occasions and nobody ever got enough of it. Fast forward to 2011 and Manang’s soy garlic chicken evolved from the comfort food of our dining table, to the local weekend market, and finally to a growing chain of fast food restaurants! Manang unwittingly redefined fried chicken for the Pinoy market.

The good news is we’re just getting started — the best is yet to come! Just keep bringing your appetites and leave it to us to satisfy your cravings for insanely good chicken. Make Manang’s Chicken a delectable part of your family and barkada gatherings. It has certainly been a delectable part of ours.
