Dare to Compare: Baked Chicken at Stackers


Would you dare to compare?


I got an invite yesterday from Mr Richard Mamuyac of Astig Machismis about a food event held at Eastwood. Luckily I got in though my initial thoughts was its for pure food bloggers only. I do blog about food among other things so good thing I got in as well. And only for the second time this year I got invited to attend such event as well. 


My first visit but definitely not the last


The first shot I took. XD


With 80% less oil, this is a healthier option


When I arrived at Stackers at 2:00pm, I got to meet a few bloggers who do love good food and have a curiosity trying out a new dish. Well its not actually new but the way they prepared it, you would never want to have chicken at another restaurant again. XD


Doing some updates via facebook/twitter


 
I'll be back for their burgers soon XD


Some smiles seen from the bloggers. :D


What I like about Stackers is that its not your usual burger joint. They have a variety of dishes to choose from but their burgers are their bestseller and probably on my next visit, I'll give them a try. I ordered a chocolate malt milkshake while waiting for our food. The milkshake was so tasty I reminded myself that I need some room for food later XD.


Choco Malt Milkshake. Yummy!!! XD


Only one looked at the camera XD


While waiting for the star of the show (Baked Chicken), I tried their Fish and Chips. I ordered only half and I'm quite surprised that their serving was pretty much okay. A full order of their Fish and Chips yield four big pieces and its definitely good for two or more people.

As what Ms Mary Michelle Lapuz (I-Food's Marketing Officer) described, their Baked Fried Chicken is not your usual fast food fried chicken. Here's why:

1. It uses 80% less oil (than the regular fried chicken) making it lighter and healthier than any other fried chicken here in the Metro.

2. They have a unique method of cooking that reduces oil absorption while preserving the juice and flavor of the chicken. This could be their trade secret =P. 

3. They have a special recipe that brings out the crispiness of the chicken skin and tenderness of the meat.


Taking a snap of the chicken. :D


Their new prized possession: The Baked Fried Chicken




A closer look on their Baked Fried Chicken


On a personal note, I like how the chicken was cooked. The skin was as crispy as "chicaron" yet the tenderness of the meat was still retained. The chicken was moist on the inside, crunchy on the outside, just how I like it but without those unwanted oil and fats as well. However, their gravy needs improvement as it tastes a bit bland to me. 

If I were you, I'd this out-of-the-ordinary chicken delight available in all Stackers Burger Café outlets located at Eastwood City, Resorts World and McKinley Hill Venice Piazza in Bonifacio Global City, Alabang Town Center and also at its newly opened branch at the Promenade Mall in Greenhills, San Juan City.
