Taiwanese Chicken + Milk Tea | Oh My Chicken!

We all know that Taiwanese street foods are also becoming a trend here in the Philippines. When Oh My Chicken! opened their first branch in Tondo, Manila, everyone got really excited to try their most rave Taiwanese chicken and milk tea combination. These became a hit for students as they offer not just delicious but also the budget-friendly menu.

Since I’ve missed their first branch near Chiang Kai Shek College, I made sure to visit their latest one inside the Laperal Youniversity Tower in Recto, Manila. This branch is located together with other restaurants like a food court at the ground floor of the building. If you are familiar with the area, Laperal Youniversity Tower is located just after UE Recto approaching Mendiola/Legarda street.

Their menu is almost the same from what they are offering on their first branch but added some new items for their customers. We tried the following:

Chicken Popcorn (R: P88 | L: P188)
The rumor is true! This chicken popcorn is so addicting. It is cooked deep-fried to achieve the crispiness from the outside but still juicy inside. I loved this so much that I couldn’t stop munching on when dip to honey mayo. It is best to consume while still hot.

Chicken Steak (R: P88 | L: P128)
A tender chicken steak that comes with 3 different sauces: strawberry mayo, honey mayo, and matcha mayo. Okay, the chicken was good just like the poppers but for me, the strawberry and matcha mayo sauces didn’t match the taste. The matcha one had a strong grassy taste which is weird with chicken. But I think, if you love exploring food, you might still want to check this out.

Fresh Crispy Squid (R: P148 | L: P178)
Another new item on their menu, fresh crispy squid is indeed crispy. It jived together with the spicy honey sauce and I think, the best with vinegar also.

Milk Tea (Price starts at P98)

Black Sugar Fresh Milk
One of the best sellers in their milk tea series. This flavor has a creamy taste and if you prefer a subtle sweetness, adjust the sugar level to 25% since their brown sugar is already sweet. I totally loved everything about this drink most especially their chewy pearls.

Black Sugar Fresh Milk Tea
This flavor is almost the same as the one above but the difference is that it has tea. I also found this one good and worth a try.

Strawberry Fresh Milk
If you prefer a creamy drink with a kick of strawberry, then this one's for you. I liked how the taste wasn’t too sweet, you just have to mix them all together.

Taro Matcha Fresh Milk
One of their taro series, Taro Matcha has the combination of two loved flavors: matcha and ube. The color was weird for me as I was expecting a purple one but I think it was because the two were already mixed together hence creating a different hue. On the first sip, it had a grassy taste because of the matcha but still, the taro was there.

I also noticed this cute little box for to go orders. Yay!

How I wish they would open in North areas where I live so I could have them anytime I want. If not, I’m still willing to pay them a visit if I happened to be in Recto. Oh My Chicken! is definitely a must-try restaurant made for budget-conscious students who are still up for some delicious snacks.
