Chocolate-coated chicken wings and drumsticks, anyone? Yep, you heard that right. What, ‘eew?‘ Totally understandable- same reaction here, actually, when a friend told me about it. Like, who in their right mind would want to mix dessert with the main dish, right!? Do you really have to be crazy to eat at Crazy Chicken? Let’s see!
Solo Drumsticks 2pcs. Black Listed – P109
Directions: Lilac St. in Marikina City- to get access there, the usual route is from Marcos Hiway to Sumulong Hiway (Marikina side), then turning right to Soliven st. (7-11 landmark) and eventually that street will be Lilac after the bridge, and voila! Here’s a map. Not exact, but it’s just a few meters away from there.
Crazy Chicken can house about 7 groups of 4-5 people on the first floor, and a second floor is currently underway. Parking is shared with the other establishments in the building so competition can be a bit rough. But since it’s Lilac, you can actually safely park around the intersecting streets nearby.
Food is both good and affordable! They’re kind of like this hole-in-the-wall restaurant that’s about to have the rest of its walls torn down. And business is looking good! I always see the place crowded with customers every time I pass by. In terms of price, they’re definitely the more wallet-friendly type vs. its neighboring chicken wings competition (Manila Wings, which I’ll blog next.) Both are awesome though!
The quantity, quality and size triumvirate of their dishes are in fair equilibrium once pricing is considered.
Before my remarks about the awaited chocolatey goodness, here are what we ordered:
Jalapeno Stix – P70
Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas – P119
Home-Style Fries – P60
Chicken Pesto Pasta – P120
Solo Wings 4 pcs. Garlic Parmesan – P109
Country-Style Iced Tea (500ml) – P60
Verdict: Like I said- I was appalled at the idea at first, but Chepot and Ching insisted on recommending it time and time again. With those kinds of constant remarks, one cannot help it but be curious. I ordered Garlic Parmesan to be on the safe side, and planned on just having a pinch of the chocolate chicken they both got.
And you know what? It was weird…but surprisingly delicious! Delicious in a way that yes, you can actually pair it with rice for a full dinner’s meal! The sweetness of the chocolate blended well with the chicken skin and meat like sorcery you’ve never imagined before. The whole fiasco made me disappointed with the flavor I ordered since it suddenly seemed too ordinary. Having said that, I’ll be sure to order their Black Listed next time! I don’t know about you guys- better try and taste it for yourselves? Who knows, maybe it’s acquired taste? Haha.
The rest– the pesto pasta, fries, chili sticks are all satisfactory! Good for the belly, good for the penny!
