Chi Pollo in Makati: Fry Eat Like Wings!
Have you heard of the classic joke “Why did the chicken cross the road?” We’re putting a twist on it! It’s because it made its way to Chi Pollo in Makati City to be fried to crisp perfection and smothered in mouth-watering, unique sauces. What may look like a hole in the wall has one of the best chicken in the Metro to offer.
The owners thought of a clever way to name their chicken restaurant: Chi was derived from Chicken and Pollo means chicken in Spanish. In their quaint space, expect a simple yet industrial feel to the place painted with the theme (red, green, and yellow) as they want to focus on the food and great service.
