The Old and The New in Koronadal City Food Scene
Sissy and Maya are home. And as requested by Browie, we will be the "sundo" for the day. We get to Marbel, the old name of Koronadal City, before lunch. Sissy went to see her high school friend first, then we went to have a day of eating and discovering what's new in the city.
- Chicken House
One of the newest in Koronaday City food scene, is just a few months old, located along General Santos Drive, is a branch of one of the original chicken houses in Dadiangas, now General Santos City.
Chicken House is my to go to place when I crave for Garlic Chicken. And for our lunch we had; Half Garlic Chicken for Php 115.00, 3 Mountain Dew for Php.60.00 and a Platter of Garlic Fried Rice for Php50.00. The Garlic Chicken is still the best local chicken dish in SOCSKSARGEN for me. I used to order boxes of their Garlic Chicken back then. Nothing have change with its taste, the garlic and the sweetness of its sauce is a perfect marriage to the crispiness of its chicken. That was lunch.
Milk tea craze is everywhere, and Koronadal City, has its share to this craze, Mr. Tea. We had; Hazelnut, Wintermelon and Honeydew each for Php 50.00. I've tasted a number of Milk teas in Cebu City, and I can say that Mr. Tea can go at par with it. And it did stays true to being the tastiest Milk Tea in Koronadal City.
Mr. Tea is located beside Christ the King Cathedral along Rizal St. corner Roxas St. When in Koronadal and you crave for some Milk Tea, do try Mr. Tea.
- Trishas Burger Station
It is one of the old burger joint in Marbel. Back then birthday treats to my classmates would always be at Trisha's. With Jollibee and gourmet burger around, its fun to once again have a taste of Trishas. A regular Trishas Cheese Burger is price at Php 32.00 only. It is located along Alunan Avenue, right next to SMRAA.
- Casa Polo's Crispy Chicken Skin and Botchi
|These save us a lot of "baon" back then|
One of our favorite "tambayan" during highschool days, a piece of fried chicken then goes a long way. But what Me and Sissy want to try again is their Crispy Chicken Skin and Botchi. Sinful and tasty as ever we bought 3 pack of each for Php 10.00 per pack. Casa Polo is now Juneby's, just a few steps from Trishas.
