My previous boss on my first job is a great fan of Chowking. Whenever we go out of the office for fieldworks, my boss always chose to eat at Chowking to eat his favorite congee with century egg. I am not a fan of Chowking's congee because I just consider it as expensive regular “lugaw.” So, whenever we eat out at Chowking, I usually order one of Chowking's noodles.
Chowking is a fast food restaurant that offers Chinese dishes. Siomai, siopao and Chinese noodles are few of the food items that can be found on the Chowking menu. Of the many items being offered by Chowking menu, I only have three favorites and these are:
1. Chowking Halo-halo

Chowking halo-halo is the most popular dessert on the Chowking menu although it is more of a Filipino dessert than a Chinese one. What I like about Chowking's halo-halo is its being kumpledos rekados (complete in ingredients) because this halo-halo has all the usual toppings like sweet beans, nata de coco, kaong, sweetened banana and leche flan plus; one scoop of ice cream.
2. Chowking Beef Noodles
I said in a previous post that Chowking's noodles are like the thicker version of the Lucky Me! Noodles. Chowking's beef noodle is a tasty noodle soup that has chunks of beef meat on it. The taste of this noodle soup is quite OK and I order it whenever I want to have a “masabaw” (soupy) meal.
3. Chinese-style Chicken
Chowking's Chinese-style Chicken is the latest item on the Chowking menu. Chowking's TV commercial brags that many people like their Chinese-style chicken and I believe that that it's true. Chowking's Chinese-style chicken is crunchy and tasty. It is definitely better than the fried chicken of Jollibee and McDonalds.
These are three of my favorite Chowking meals. I am not a fan of Chowkings congee and chao fan (fried rice) because my mother can cook better tasting lugaw and sinangag at home. So, if you will ever see me eat at Chowking, expect that you will see me eat any of these three items from the Chowking menu.
