El Pollo Loco a.k.a. The Crazy Chicken

El Pollo Loco, pronounced “L Po-yo Lo-co” and Spanish for “The Crazy Chicken,” is the Philippines' leading quick-service restaurant chain specializing in flame-grilled chicken (the healthiest chicken in town).

We wanted to try their chicken but opted not to in the past because we thought, what if it's not good? But how are we know if we don't try? 

Then the next time we went to SM Megamall, we went inside their branch with no hesitation =p 

On the table: 


We ordered their 4pc Chicken Loco Meal for 290php. This includes: 4pcs of chicken, 2 rice [choice of plain or spanish] and 2 salsa. 


Separate order of iced tea which cost 33php regular and 37php large. 


It's said that El Pollo Loco uses fresh chicken that are marinated in a special recipe of herbs, spices and citrus juices passed down from the founding family. The marinated chicken is then flame-grilled, hand cut and served hot off the grill with warm tortillas and a wide assortment of side dishes.


If I were to rate it, I'd say that it's okay. There hadn't been any distinct taste that you would want to experience over and over again. But the salsa is a good twist of the usual catsup or gravy chicken dip =p
