Clucky’s in Rockwell Business Center
In partnership with one of USA’s top Korean fried chicken brand known as Mad for Chicken, Clucky’s has recently opened its doors in one of the towers of Rockwell Business Center. With it’s orange theme, Clucky’s offers a distinct ambiance that sets it apart from your usual chicken joint. It takes pride in serving chicken coated with and made for tastier by the Mad for Chicken sauce, which uses authentic Korean ingredients in concocting such.
It was a fortunate opportunity to get invited to try the popular dishes of Clucky’s. With a few of my fellow foodies, Clucky’s introduced us to a restaurant that specialize on Korean fried chicken and also other Korean dishes such as kimchi rice and bulgogi rice.
It was an intimate bloggers’ dinner, and what better way to whet our appetites but to serve as with light and hearty salads. We started out trying the House Salad (PhP 119) and Spicy Crabmeat Salad (PhP 159).
The house salad is a party of grapes and ripe mangoes that lie on top of a bed of sliced and diced lettuce. It is drizzled with vinaigrette-like dressing. The spicy crabmeat salad has perfectly seasoned and well-plated crabmeat on a bed of lettuce.
With our appetites heightened, we tried the Calamari (Php 119) and Parmesan Fries (Php 49/79) next.
The calamari was fried perfectly. The squid’s meat is not rubbery, easy to bite through it. The parmesan fries could have been my favorite if it had more of that cheese. I should’ve requested for more parmesan on it. These came with two dips, spicy mayo sauce and aioli.
The next dish traveling from our mouths to our tummies is a burger with black sesame seeds on top and a chicken patty in between buns. It had lettuce and a cheesy dressing to complete the repertoire. I liked the chicken patty because it was really but I think the bun was a little spongy for me. When it comes to burgers, I want the bun to be soft and less airy. With a better bun, this will definitely win me over.
After some beating around the bush filled with gastronomic delights, we met the star of Clucky’s – it’s fried chicken. Clucky’s fried chicken is available in soy garlic and spicy. The soy garlic is good while the spicy really lives up to being spicy. So so hot! First, we had some Chicken Tenders.
Then, some Wings and Drums. We started with the soy garlic first so we can gather some courage before having the spicy ones.
Of course, the fried chicken should be paired with some rice. We sampled the Kimchi Rice and Bulgogi Rice. I liked the bulgogi rice more because it has a certain spice that leaves me wanting more.
We ended the night with different flavors of ice cream. We had chocolate, coffee, banoffee, mango, and cookies and cream. Of course, it’s chocolate for me.
Overall, Clucky’s is a great place to go to for quick and delicious bite. It’s another way to enjoy Korean fried chicken for a more affordable price tag.
Another thing I liked at Clucky’s is the palate cleanser that we had during the dinner. I think it’s not on the menu but it was good. It was a calamondin (kalamansi) sorbet – smooth and an awesome palate cleaner. They should put that up on board.
