My parents had their wedding reception in Savory Restaurant in Escolta. That’s why I could see so much nostalgia from them whenever they’ll see a Savory branch, which seems to be spreading lately.
And so one day, I decided to eat dinner with friends in one of their branches, specifically the one in SM Mall of Asia, to find out why this chicken restaurant has survived through all these years.
Now rebranded as Classic Savory, the place is still a favorite of the “oldies” and seems to be a getting on the good side of the younger generation.
The fried chicken at Savory has similarities with the “lechon manok”, one of my favorite drinking pulutan. But the gravy is what I think defines the overall experience in eating a Savory fried chicken.
And what do you drink with all these delicious chicken? My best choice would be the Savory Blend Iced Tea.
This house specialty states that it is made from real black tea leaves and citrus blends. I agree that it’s a truly refreshing drink.
