BonChon Chicken

Recently, a lot of buzz has been created by Ayala Triangle Garden so since it was a Friday payday, we decided to explore what it has to offer and what the buzz is all about.

Ayala Triangle is like a small park amidst the Makati CBD. It is bound by 3 major roads: Paseo de Roxas, Makati Avenue and Ayala Avenue. It appears to be a breathing space from the bustling crowd and noise of the Metropolis. Several restaurants, around 10 or more, are found in the area. This includes Wee Nam Kee, Amici, Caramia, Golden Spoon and BonChon Chicken to name a few.

We decided to try BonChon Chicken. The place easily gets packed but since it was just around 6pm, we were able to secure a seat.

For 3 pax, we ordered these:
1 Chicken Wings Medium (12pcs: half spicy and half soy garlic) - P365
2 French Fries - P45 each
Chicken Wings, Fries
Soy Garlic and Spicy
We ordered their Lemon Iced Tea (22 oz) and thought it was too big. It was that big for a cause though, the Spicy Chicken was really spicy. We liked the Soy Garlic more but still, Shakey's Buffalo Wings taste better. :)  
Iced Tea
With three drinks included, we spent P573. Not bad, but it's not that filling though. We ended up looking for dessert as we were not that satisfied. Nothing special, it's just that it was really crispy especially the Soy Garlic. As a final verdict for BonChon Chicken, the crispiness of the chicken wings, that's what the buzz is all about.


  1. Yes, I agree on the crispiness. Were you able to hold down the spiciness? :-)

    I'm looking at trying Bon Chon again. Service was not that good last time I was there but it might be worth another try.

  2. I heard the ones in the US taste much better. Maybe they make it differently in Manila? If you're ever in NY or NJ try the BonChon here. :)

    Btw, thanks for the comment! :)
