I’ve been wanting to dine at Chic-Boy in Jupiter St., Makati for over a month now to try their Cebu-style of cooking inihaw and lechon. As a kid who often spends his summer in Cebu, I grew fond of Cebuanos way of cooking lechon so I was quite stoked eating at this place.
According to my research (which only involves reading Blogalag’s entry), Chic-Boy is a subsidiary of Pier One Bar and Gril and it just opened last May. They specialize in chicken and pork (baboy) hence the name.
They have two specialties that you should definitely try when dining for the first time. The Cebu Lechon Liempo (Php155) and the Cebu Lechon Manok (Php210). Ordering both should already be good for 5 or 6 people.
They have different sauces available which reminds me of Mang Inasal. The popular chicken oil plus Mang Tomas and garlic bits.
I don’t know why the presentation of our food doesn’t look too appealing compared to Blogalag’s but it shouldn’t deceive you. I can’t get enough of the tasty lechon liempo and the fatty parts which are so sinfully delicious. I didn’t even bother dipping it in vinegar or any sauce for the matter. The lechon manok was also very tasty. No soy sauce or vinegar yet even the white meat doesn’t taste boring.
With a bottomless iced tea and garlic rice plus some garlic kangkong to neutralize the unhealthy cholesterol then you’re all set for your meal. Next time I think I’m going to try their lechon sisig. Mmmm.
They should put the word “lechon” in every dish to make them really appetizing. Hehehe. You should definitely try this place out if you’re fond of
Sorry for the crummy shots, we only had a camera phone that time.___________________________
