I can still vividly remember my first time in Kenny Rogers way back in the 90s. I can somehow still recall, that as we were enjoying their roasted chicken with loads of sides, a ton of songs from Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton were being played in the background.
Fast forward to two decades after, they are still around, thriving in the very competitive chicken market. Today, just in Metro Manila alone, they have 34 branches! And more can be found in other key cities in the Philippines.
Yesterday, after covering two food establishments in the morning, I still found myself eating at their branch at the 30th Mall in Ortigas for late lunch. I just had to indulge in their newest treat, Kenny’s Chipotle Fire Chicken! Yep, it’s the known Mexican Chili added to spice up their classic premium roast.
It was a forgiving series of bites, despite the presence of a really hot pepper. The original flavors are still boldly present, it simply upgraded with a powerful kick. If you aren’t the kind who enjoys spicy food, I suggest trying the Chipotle variety as an act of courage. Anyway, they have sweet desserts to rescue you, just in case. Do it like I did, I had their yogurt with fruits, Strawberry Smoothie and Chocolate Sundae!
This newest offering will be available starting this Monday, January 22! A solo plate is fairly priced at Php 245, while a family meal with a whole chicken, 4 sides, 4 spicy java rice, 4 corn muffins and 1 pitcher of iced tea for just Php 810. Now, that’s a bargain you should not dare miss.
The team from Kenny Rogers did whisper something to me before I left. They said, ‘we got more surprises and promotions coming up this 2018’. It was not a loud voice but I surely won’t forget that. I shall wait, and you should too!
