Chicken For The ROAD in Ortigas Home Depot, Pasig

We rarely frequent Ortigas area for food trips ever since I've resigned from my previous job in Pasig. Honestly, I quite miss the old times when D would pick me up from work and we'd have our dinner somewhere around the area.

A recent visit to Ortigas Home Depot got us reminiscing those times as we found ourselves inside this small restaurant called Chicken for the Road

The place is very casual and simple with plastic tables and monobloc chairs. Most of their customers seem to be office employees working around the business district. 

On the Table

Chicken Fooyong  (P200)

An omelette dish of mixed greens and chicken, the Chicken Fooyong is quite simple and straightforward. There wasn't much chicken on it though. 

Fish Fillet w/ Tofu Hot Pot (P220)

As much as I love fish fillet and tofu hot pot, this version failed to impress me. In fact, we were not able to finish the order and decided to just leave it behind instead of taking it out. We just ate the tofu and carrots since the fish fillet tasted really different. I think the fillet wasn't cooked properly, leaving some uncooked batter inside it. 

Garlic Chicken (Whole-P300, Half-P170)

The redeeming dish for that day was their Garlic Chicken for the Road. There were two of us dining so I assumed they will give us the half order good for 2-4 pax. We were surprised when a whole order was served to us. 

The fried chicken was served freshly cooked and hot with some dash of fried garlic. We both enjoyed it so much, leaving just few pieces of left over.

Chicken for the Road Menu:

If you love fried chicken, then the fried chicken of Chicken for the Road is worth trying out. I would skip on the Fish Fillet Hot Pot though. I guess they wouldn't name the place Chicken for the Road if it's not chicken they specialize in right?
