The Classic Savory Chicken Part 2

Yes, we came back! Well, E wanted to eat pancit; we had to eat anywhere at Pasig area because we were planning to watch a movie there; and we were already along C5 earlier. The Classic Savory Chicken at SM Hypermart was an obvious choice. We had a late lunch (around 2pm) so the place wasn't at all packed.

E chose pancit miki bihon since we’ve already tried the pancit canton plus the chicken, which was their specialty.

E found the miki bihon dry. It was the opposite of the pancit canton we first ordered which had a thick sauce. E said that my own 'miki bihon' tasted way better. hahaha.

I am not a big fan of 'fried' chicken with no breading or marinade and so I am also not a follower of the famous Max's fried chicken. TCSC's specialty is similar to that of Max's, both cooked the same manner with the taste slightly differing. TCSC's chicken is served with their own gravy.

TCSC's chicken didn't change my opinion on chicken simply fried. The chicken's meat is naturally bland so it is quite tricky to put flavor on it. I found the chicken a little bit overcooked which resulted to an even more dry taste. I had to ask for soy sauce to add flavor to it. I prefer the moist chicken (cooked 'Shanghai' or 'China') style at North Park or any chicken cooked by adding rosemary and roasting.

If we ever visit again, we'll probably just stick to the pancit canton and try other dishes from their menu.
