The Homies Pinoy-style fried chicken.

If you’re tired of the usual chicken that relies heavily on layers of breading in order to satisfy your taste buds, Homies lets you savor the flavor, sans the thick and powdery feel of the breading in your mouth. Chicken skin that’s crisp to bite, and meat that oozes with flavor, this chicken meal gives you more bang for your buck. Their inexpensive Homies meals with UNLI rice and Iced Tea makes it an irresistible venue for lunches and dinners with friends! The butter served at the side of the chicken was a nice touch, too, augmenting the flavor with the creamy taste of the butter.

If you’re a ketchup lover like I am, you’ll enjoy their chicken with their homemade condiment. It tastes akin to banana catsup, only richer and a tastier choice to add flavor to the chicken. However, I enjoyed my half of the chicken even without the catsup, and I can only imagine how much more I would have loved it if I had dug right in!

Homies serve equally popular best-selling dishes as well, with their twist on the usual meals. The Pork Menudo and Chicken Teriyaki surpassed expectations, but the Chicken Curry and Chili con Carne both need a little more spice to get mouths watering. The rice-averse can still enjoy at Homies by having their fill of Chili Hotdog for less than a hundred, or a Meatball Spaghetti for Php 90.
